Up until now, I've been one of those "the show's fine, it's all in good fun" type of people.
Then, Omar said, "I've been trying to get into the music business for six or seven years, but no one's ever said anything good about my singing."
With shows like American Idol, you usually assume the bad singers are just joking around - so when one gets a $100,000 record deal, you think "who cares, they're getting paid to suck."
But, Omar definitely thinks he's good and is definitely serious about this. I'm sure some of the others are as well. That's what made it so hard to swallow.
