Jimmy would have had my vote!
Just finished watching "Popstar to Operastar." If I had been a judge Jimmy would have been moving on to next week's show. Jimmy needs to start a show "Operastar to Popstar." Wouldn't you love to see the judges in that show? It's really difficult for most singers to go back and forth from classical to pop. There are a few singers that can pull it off but not too many. When we were newlyweds, Wayne tried to teach me to sing pop and I tried to teach Wayne to sing opera. I think Wayne did a lot better job at singing opera than I did singing pop. I finally got so frustrated that I didn't even want to try anymore. Wayne and I have sung duets in church before and we both just try to sing somewhere in between the two. I try not to sing with so much vibrato and Wayne tries to hit the note straight on without scooping. I don't know if it sounded very good or not. The most important thing is that we were willing to participate. That's what I tell myself and try to convince myself of every time I participate in something. Nothing is ever 100% perfect and there is always someone that can do a better job no matter what it is. Even when someone sets a world record it is always beat eventually. These are my thoughts on perfectionism. It's easier said that done. Are you a perfectionist? What do you do to deal with it? I'd love to hear some of your ideas.
