So for reality tv shows, stupidity actually works. You get a bunch of stupid and dumb contestants who have no clue how bad they are and then let them publicly humiliate themselves by their own acts and afterwards by the remarks that they get from the judges. See it isn’t easy to get out of your comfort zone and face people and the camera like this. It actually takes a lot of guts to do that.
But fortunately for people like the guy in this video it doesn’t take that much of an effort since inside their heads they are the best at what they do. This is the African version of the famous reality TV show, American Idol. So you should keep in mind that the taste and nature of music will be much more different than what we might normally expect. This guy on the other hand, had an exceptional case. He came in to perform an English song and that too with all the passion and drama he had boiling inside of him. Not only was that passion irresistible and irritable to the ears but also a huge scene of embarrassment for him once the show would have gone on air.
