Unintentional Comedy from VH1 -- FIN!
My faith in people’s tastes has been reinstated… for now. Michael Copon has won the VH1 contest, But Can They Sing. Morgan Fairchild came in third place, so it was down to Carmine Gotti Agnello and Michael. After an hour-long show of prolonging the results—including a truly ghastly rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (we’re sorry, Freddie!) where they brought back ALL the contestants (minus Joe Pantoliano)—we finally learned that Michael Copon had won. That means that 12 year-old girls everywhere are disappointed, but that also means they are not the ones holding all the cards. Thank God!
Now for the scary part: they let Bai Ling come back and sing a solo… for ENTERTAINMENT purposes only. No! Why? Are you kidding me? Oh, wait… the song they chose for her is I Touch Myself by the Divinyls. Lord-love-a-duck—what the HELL were they thinking? Hmm… she wears little to no clothing, she likes to hump chairs while she sings. THIS is a good song choice for Bai?!? Okay, so basically she played with herself through most of the song. Really. I know VH1 is on cable, but it’s BASIC cable. They tout this show as a FAMILY show. Oh, man… I can hear the phones ringing and the emails shouting. If the chick could actually sing, I might even forgive her for the raunchy show. Even Ant was sweating bullets.
Best thing about the results of this show… I can stop wasting my Sunday nights on this crap and get back to Grey’s Anatomy.
