  •  I sang in a choir for the 1991 Goodwill Games... (9+ / 0-)

    and in spite of a 100-voice choir, for broadcasting purposes, live voices over amplification in a huge outdoor arena simply do not go well on a TV feed. It's a question of technology, not the performer's competence. Think for yourself -- if you've ever been to an outdoor stadium and heard the announcer over the loudspeakers, the audio is a whole different quality than what you hear on television.

    Has nothing to do with the "dumbing down" of performers or audiences...has more to do with what works with technology during a live event that's broadcast worldwide.

    Sheesh. Of all things to get worked up about.
