Quite pointless
15 August 2012 | by Simon_J_RodgersSee all my reviews

Why is it that they keep churning out all these different audition shows on a large scale? And why are they now based on one particular character from musicals? I couldn't watch much of this drivel, even though I do enjoy Andrew Lloyd-Webber's musical genius. I have listened to a good stack of his work and I have yet to be disappointed by him.

The problem was not with him, but with the way the programme was set out. It was too much like the other audition type programmes. There was really nothing special about it.

Brian May of Queen fame blasted Lloyd-Webber saying it was not the best way of choosing the best singer for his shows and that he certainly would not be doing anything similar to choose a singer for the "We Will Rock You" musical.

I have to say I agree with Doctor May regarding this. I honestly thought Andrew Lloyd-Webber, would have done something along the usual route, after all he's been writing musicals and having them performed left, right and centre for donkey's years, why did he have to resort to these types of programmes, just because he saw other people using them for their shows?

Come on, the very fact that HE is such a good composer and producer is because he did it all HIS way. Why change such a good habit? The people auditioning were not as different as people would have expected either.

Most of the songs performed were not even of this musical calibre anyway, so what's the point? People maybe able to sing Lloyd-Webbers stuff but not the general material and vice-versa.

The fact that one maybe able to sing one type of song is no indication of if they can sing anything else. Why not test these potential Nancies on the actual songs which they will be expected to sing on their big nights? And just why do a few stage musical productions turn to this manner to select a suitable performer?

Why don't they just do another larger version of "The X Factor" for all these stage shows and be done with it? The ideas behind the show may have been worth considering, the actual show itself was certainly not.
