Concert for Diana

As I sit here watching the Concert in Honor of Diana, I come away with a huge obstacle. Why do today’s popular artists need back up dancers? I just don’t get it. Personally I could care less who is up there gyrating along with the music. Just give me the singer, his/her music, the band and let me enjoy. Who needs this much extra stimulation? Not me. For the record, it is very distracting.

Perhaps it is a generational thing. So I am a dinosaur, I am okay with that. You don’t see a bunch of people wriggling about while Elton or Rod Stewart are out there doing their thing.

Hope you all are enjoying the concert.

Prince has backup Twinz. So it must be OK.

I agree. I got a little distracted by all the hustle and bustle on stage too. I guess it just goes to show we are a society of the more the merrier, in more ways than one.

I thought they were there to distract from the lack of vocal quality, originally. But now everyone (even strong singers) seem to have them. Well, everyone under a certain age.

I totally agree with you. Why do they need them? I'm not a dinosaur, but it's distracting for me, too!

By the way, I wanted to give you something. Go onto "OSOMOLOVE" and right click the pink box in the right hand corner. Save and post on your blog. ENJOY!

I think Madonna popularized the back up dancer thing.

its so that even when the people don't like the music it greatly amuses them to see people twirling in the bacround.
