Anybody ever see the show, Last Choir Standing? Probably not, unless you live in England as it’s a show on the BBC.
In my opinion, it’s not a show that would last long on American TV because it doesn’t have the important ingredients WE require for a reality TV show:
- Excessive alcohol
- Skimpy outfits
- “Unscripted” drama that is scripted
- Tear-jerker stories
- Or voting people off of the island.
One thing it might have in common, but I haven’t seen the show to know for sure: snarky British judges.
Why am I asking you about this random show?
Because of a VERY important question they asked as part of their “GREAT CHOIR DEBATE.”*
“What should a choir wear?”
Here are some of the superb answers from the great debate:
“I’m not in for all this formal stuff – particularly if you’re singing quite poppy songs.”
“In the name of being entertained it’s just an element of the overall package.”
“You can’t just be a big gimmick.”
“I think a good clean marine colour is a wonderfully, fresh and natural colour is nice.”
“no not if the singing is better than the look of the choir as I’ve done les miserables in my school and everyone persent was over wilmed by the sound and not the clothes!!!!”
What I learned from these answers: I don’t sing enough poppy songs; I should start more of my sentences with “in the name of being entertained…”; nobody likes a big gimmick; I don’t own enough marine colour; and if you can’t spell the easy words, don’t finish your sentence with excessive exclamation points—it’s like you’re shouting your bad spelling at me.
Yesterday was Mother’s day. I supported my Mom by going to hear her play for the Orchestra at Temple Square for the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast.
Loved hearing my Mom play, though, and as always, the music was beautiful.
*I am NOT making that up. They really called it the GREAT choir debate. All my life I had no idea that this show would be able to answer all of my questions. So glad I finally found it.
