One of Those Rare Moments I Agree Wtih Althouse.
She like me thinks that guest coach was giving some much needed professional pointers on singing ballads. Go here for that.
"A painful moment last night on the dying show they call "American Idol." The contestants were singing old standards, and Connick obviously knows how to sing them well, but his efforts to help them sing those songs fell on — it's mean to use this cliché, which is why I'm violating my rule against clichés — deaf ears."I gave up on AI years ago and started watching again this year because of a lady friend did. And I am a musician of sorts. I can deal with it as long as I keep in mind, it is TV product. And part of the fun of it, is complaining about it. Now last night I was commenting on my FB page. And one of my friends disagreed with me siding with Harry Connick telling the one singer to sing the purer version, instead of some more stylized version. I agreed with the ultimate direction:
Sing the melody.
Earlier today I revisited that thread, and made the following observation:
"Follow up. First, I can not sing for real. Best I can do is "imitate." And not well for the record. But I that that was the point HC was making. (Don't imitate,) sing the melody."I really think I got what Connick was saying. Don't immitate. Sing damnit!

Mrs. Palin Does Not Heart the D.C. Press Corps Dinner.
"Yea Sarah Palin! You tell them girl! Cause the fate of the nation, if not humanity itself, rests on the matter of whether the DC Press Corps throws one party a year. Or not."
What a twit.
Change the I in twit to an A if you like.
And since the last job she had was with the elite media, and got fired, I think she has some issues, here.
