Earlier today I was listening to the “Best of the Week” of Howard Stern on Sirius XM. One of the segments that they had on the show was when rapper Flo Rida stopped into the studio earlier this week to perform his new single, “Right Round.” I’m not hating on a man trying to make it big, but this guy has got to be the worst live performer in the history of entertainment!
At some point last year this guy was on the Stern show singing his other hit song, “Low.” He was so horrible in that performance that I figured he would be both laughed off of the show and pretty much lose his rapping career. Not so! I guess that with the amount of electronically-stylized music that is out in the market today the masses don’t really care about entertainers who can’t really perform live.
It’s definitely a weird change for the music market where, at one point, you actually had to be able to sing and carry a performance on your own. Today, all you need is a sound mixer and you’re good to go! Weird.
All I know is that if you listen to Flo Rida’s live renditions of “Low” and “Right Round” from the Howard Stern show, you’ll think this guy is the biggest scam artists on the face of the earth…or at least in the music industry!
