What bugs me is how Ryan makes cracks at the videos, stuff like "I can see that video winning an MTV award!" Who is he kidding? It sounds like sarcasm in it's most basic form and I wonder if the kids see it as sarcasm. They seem embarrassed enough, the last thing they need is Ryan rubbing it in.
I can only think of one place that would play American Juniors videos and be appreciated. And that's CANADA! And those of you who are Canadian will know what I mean when I say: YTV'S HIT LIST
I don't think America really gives teeny bopper pop a chance. I mean most American pop bands go to Europe first to get publicity, then Canada for some reason, then come back home to see if they can do the same. These AJs could find successes in some European countries I think like Germany and Sweden. But they'd be a laughing stock in the UK.
the videos were ok but in the chauncey and ruben duet one what was chauncey doing like he was actin all weird in some of the parts i mean i like chauncey and all but i didnt know what he was doing

It seems like way to many Americans spend too much time trying to fit into a certain "click" rather then simply listening to whatever music is good and supporting who ever has talent.
Another thing is that dancing isn't really appreciated as much as it should be here in the U.S. An amazing dance group will be considered far less talented then a group that plays their own instruments, even if they are just hitting the same three cords on a guitar.
It also doesn't help that we have TV personalities like Carson Daily introducing Pop music on TRL and then bashing boy bands on his late night show. Forget the fact that Pop bands made Carson's career, as soon as he gets the chance he tries to distance himself from it all. Can you blame him? Unless he gets away form the pop image he won't be taken seriously by the majority of the country. It's sad.
