I agree that their talents need to be showcased a bit more. But, that's me wanting to be entertained. However, unlike AI, we are not judging the contestants, its all up to Wayne, and I guess Wayne sees Las Vegas as a business (The Entertainer-ment business), and he's got a different list of criteria than we do, i.e.; you must be able to successfully haul luggage, run a video camera and bathe a dog before you can headline in Vegas.
I disagree that the comics have it easier than the singers. Did Joe know how to joust? Me thinkest NOT! (Was that medieval?) Did Dave know how to juggle or how to act like his head wasn't on fire? Nope. And Sarah, Jennifer Theresa and Delisco weren't called on to sing at all in that epsiode, at least I don't think they were, I was switching back and forth between the Superbowl and the show, so correct me if I'm wrong, on this point only (Hey, where in the world is Delisco? How come we haven't heard from him or a friend of him or mother or other sibling....anyone?)
The first episode, their first chance to make a good impression, was all about the signing (songs they knew, btw) and Joe, Nathan, Marla and Dave were left to find ways to incorporate their talents in to that show somehow. And AND, not one singer has been booted yet, and don't say Paul was a singer, making noises with your mouth is not singing, if it was, I'd have a platinum album already, okay, Jacquie was a singer, but, I want to win this one so I'll conveniently ignore that fact (I lack Dave's integrity). So, as far as I'm concerned, its Even Steven on the difficulty level.
Good vibes to everyone!
