I found a statement made by this writer to be quite uniformed. I don't believe he's trying to be funny or sarcastic.
Andrea Bocelli, along with producer David Foster, mentored the Idols as they navigated their way through some of the sappiest love songs known to man. I understand that Bocelli is a big deal in the classical music world and all that, but couldn't he have at least pretended to be awake during the Idols rehearsals? He had his eyes closed most of the time!
Isn't he aware that Bocelli is blind?
I do have to admit though that I liked his comments about Kellie.
