Looks like a new version of the 1980s show Puttin' On The Hits. I used to watch it every Saturday

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I don't see how wack shows like this help music in any way, shape or form.

This sucks. It looks like something put together by Jimmy Fallon. It could only be worse if they lip-synced to auto-tuned versions of the songs... eek

Why is it supposed to help anything? It's fun entertainment like The Gong Show and karaoke. biggrin There's nothing wrong with that. I don't think Puttin' On The Hits was wack, it was a good show to me.

I'd like a tribute act TV show with a different performer (eg The Musical Box, Beatallica, Joanne Joanne) each week. The Blues Brothers are probably the most well known tribute and still performs.

Micky please! I know good and damn well that you know the difference between mama give me my stuff!!!!!!!!

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Now I remember what I was going to say before I was interrupted. smile

Micky please! I know good and damn well that you know the difference between a tribute like what the Blues Brothers do and that tomfoolery that's about to happen on Spike. Come on now. Common dressed like Lionel Ritchie, whack ass jherri curl wig and all, lip-syncing "All Night Long" and I can't even with John Legend doing Hammer. It should not be allowed. What next Lil' Wayne dressed like Prince lip-syncing "When Doves Cry"? whofarted

Well if you haven't figured it out, I have a different taste than the music snobs here, who talk about "real music". lol I don't think there is anything wrong with this show. It's just a celebrity version of Puttin' On The Hits. If you've seen that show, some people wore costumes and others would dress like the performer.

I would be the opinion that this has more merit than another lip-sync show:

Why are you so damn mad? lol over a skit that was used for a late night talk show. And i don't think many people are saying ''MC Hammer is real music'' especially when a real MC like Common is there. Grey... c'mon son

Pistols sounded like "Fuck off," wheras The Clash sounded like "Fuck Off, but here's why.."- Thedigitialgardener

All music is shit music and no music is real- gunsnhalen
