For a show that’s all about music, they certainly had issues with their sound. On last night’s American Idol, Harry Connick Jr. suspected that the performers were singing out of tune because they had trouble hearing themselves. That probably the case, since I also had trouble hearing them, as did the rest of America. In fact, Randy Jackson’s pre-performance advice could not even be heard over the applause. Perhaps the producers can make this sound less like a garage and more like a stage. I’ve attached the only listenable performance below.
