Come on RATM!
Nothing against Joe, he's a nice lad with a very good voice, but he's ultimately going to be let down by the predictable ballads and covers that Cowell churns out for him. To be fair, The Climb isn't an awful song but it's about time a stand was taken against this monopoly on music that Cowell's plodding piano-and-string mediocrity seems to have taken.
(BTW, I see Leona Lewis has added another cover to her collection recently (that Oasis song).
All power to RATM for swearing live on BBC too, I say. How stupid were the Beeb to really think that they wouldn't swear, even having said they wouldn't?
It's only a few nasty little words, not sure why actually hearing a word makes people get so het up when surely they already know it. I love the thought of the Daily Mail-ers reaching for the phone upon hearing said word and getting in their customary complaint.
