You've no true competition from the kid, Susan Boyle

We all know about the human propensity to go ga-ga over children who are far more cute than they are good. I'll never fathom it. Here's a Yahoo blogger thinking the world of some British-Indian kid, who has power and potential but needs work. Instead of following Yahoo's link to advertising-preceded video, go here for the YouTube video.

Good lord, it's far more annoying than anything. The original song is ghetto-sounding enough, but this kid's notes are all over the place. He can't yet be compared to an experienced singer with a matured voice, or to someone who doesn't have to use "ay-ay-ay-ay-ay" to hide an inability to hold a clear note for more than two seconds.

There is a style which appeals to these shows -- it goes back to Ed McMahon's Star Search.

An element of oversinging, beyond what is musical appeals to an excited and generous audience. This young lad has learned what pleases the judges.
