We Are The World 25 Haiti
I've been waiting on this video for a few weeks and at last night's opening ceremonies in Vancouver, it premiered. I only got around to watching it this evening, but I'm slightly dissapointed. In no particular order here are a few things that bugged me:
- Who let Jamie Foxx's intro run more than a minute?
- Why did Weezy replace Bob Dylan, and then top it off with auto-tune?
- Why is T-Pain even in this thing? And wearing a backpack? Stay a while dude
- Tony Bennett is FLAT!
- Miley sucks; it's not even arguable
But there were a few things I really liked. I thought Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Pink (this was a huge shocker) KILLED their solos, so big ups to the ladies for holding it down. On the men's side, I was very impressed with Wyclef and even Kanye but I still can't tell if LL Cool J's/Will I Am's rap shtick with Snoop was terrible or barely passable. On the whole, it was alright but just didn't live up to the hype.
