This was very disappointing. I like singing where beautiful sounds come out, not screeching. Way too much screeching.
There were so many places where the music overpowered the singing so that I only saw moving lips and heard no singing at all. There is no way to adjust ears so that one can tune into the music and the other to the voice, so it's just disappointing when someone doesn't do his/her job to make sure things are working together.
I had to actually force myself to watch all the way through to the end. It was way too long and not interesting enough to enjoy to the end. Maybe NBC just can't pull off a live musical show.
