Simple as ABC: American Idol's False Note

If you've ever seen Jason Mraz in concert, you know that he sounds even better live than he does on his CDs. He puts on quite a show.

Nameless Boy Contestant (NBC) sang "The Geek in the Pink" tonight on American Idol. Randy said NBC sang it better than Mraz did on the original CD.

Uh, I don't think so.

Another contestant tried to pull off Marvin Gaye. Another: Cyndi Lauper.

What's going on here? It's not that they were bad, necessarily, just pale in comparison to the original artists.

I totally agree. He was nowhere close to the the Mrazmaster.
