Has anyone seen the show "Clash of the Choirs?" I watched it last night, because I recorded it, thinking maybe it wouldn't completely suck. I was curious, and curiousity killed my cat.

I watched it and wanted to vomit. Not only did the choirs suck- but watching people like Nick Lachey try to conduct made me want to crawl into a hole and die. They mostly had soloists and then everyone else in the "choir" was dancing around and doing "choreography" (and even that was shoddy). The soloists were sometimes dressed like hooches, and made me want to punch a baby. That's right, I said it. ALSO- one choir, "directed" by Patti Labelle, did a version of one of my favorite songs: "I'll Stand by You," By The Pretenders. OH MY WORD! Not only did they kill the song, but the soloist (see- I told you- soloists with choreographed crappy background singers) was FLAT for most of the song and sucked.

Then, they would go to the "panel" which consisted of the other "choir directors"- and they were always saying how great the other choir was. Okay- THEY NEED A SIMON or someone who will at least tell the truth! They were all kissing Patty LaBelle's butt because she's an "icon."

In short, DON'T even bother watching the show if you know music at all- it will probably make you want to vomit. I was going to record the season but I realized within about ten minutes that it was a complete waste of my time and ears.

I left the TV on after watching Jeopardy and went into the kitchen to feed the kids. Stephen came in after taekwondo class, saw Clash of the Choirs on, and said, "You're actually watching that??" "Nope," I said, "it was just what was on after Jeopardy." Yes, it SEEMED interesting, but I could tell that it would be disappointing.

Yeah, Michael & I completely avoided that show. Actually, I think Michael's comment the first time we saw a commercial for it was "Oh yeah, THAT's going to be good." It just looked gay. And of course, my husband who is not really a pop culture enthusiast was like "who?" in regards to half of the "directors." I think he knew Michael Bolton and maybe Patti LaBelle.
Ditto. The ONLY thing I liked about it was when Nick's choir did the flight of the bumblebee song. It was the closest thing to an actual choir song. All the others were soloists backed up by choirs.
