But really it's whatI should expect from a TV show that is really primarily about the cult of personality more than anything else...

But I digress...

Technical singing talent is pointless when it completely lacks direction, purpose or respect for the art of songwriting and the broader emotional aims of music in general.
I agree. American Idol contestants technically know how to sing for themselves, but they don't know how to sing for a song. It's really just showing off.

No offense, but anyone can rap, it's just the things you say that get judged.

no...i know a LOT of people who sing decently but cant rap worth **** (me being one of them). rap is definitely a gift you're born with or something you REALLY have to work on to get good at.

Male men? Are there other kinds of men?
