That's OK. I was hoping it wasn't dreary up there.

I'm actually glad I helped you make your point. I will grant you that if someone thinks the show is primarily about vocal abilities, they do need to get a clue.

Sometimes the show is hyped on the "great vocal talent", but we all know it's simply entertainment with a musical theme.
