Clash of the Choirs!

Behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people!

Unto your TV set will be born a reality show that will bring peace and goodwill toward men. This will be a sign to you: you will find the show broadcasting on an NBC station, marked by the peacock logo. It’s called “Clash of the Choirs.” Based on a series from Scandinavia and produced by the BBC, this show sends musical superstars back to their hometowns to form amateur choirs. Lo, a great company of the heavenly host, including Michael Bolton, Patti LaBelle, Nick Lachey, Kelly Rowland and Blake Shelton, will descend on O Little Towns with cameras and producers and all the company of heaven to prepare a host of amateur singers to compete live in studio for the title of “America's best choir.”

Do not be sore afraid! They will sing pop music and holiday classics in a four-day competition from December 17-20 (starting Monday night at 8:00 p.m.) The choirs will be judged each night by all the company of viewers watching at home.

Rejoice! Go into the world boldly knowing that the Writers' Guild of America strike may have sparked something bright and beautiful! Make haste to see this thing which is come to pass, which this blog hath made known unto you!




I beseech thee, resist! Enter not into temptation! Bolton cometh, shorn of locks, but his cries echo. A brethren of Otis and Ray he presents himself, yet a brother he is NOT!

And don't get me started on Nick Lachey!
