PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE OF ANY LIVE SINGING COMPETITION: Please listen to Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine and this one simple truth bomb they dropped during last night's episode of The Voice: You are TERRIBLE at clapping.
Anyone who's watched an episode of American Idol and seen tween girls awkwardly swaying to a tempo that is most definitely not the one being performed on stage knows that this rhythm issue is pervasive within the reality singing competition community. And anyone who's sat in an audience and watched as the brave artist on stage tried to overcome the rhythmically challenged clapping of the crowd knows that it's not a problem that will be easily solved.
During Pharrell's critique of one contestant's performance during Monday night's top nine episode of The Voice, the singer/megaproducer took a second to call out the audience's performance as well. "We have got to get some metronomes for our audience," he lamented.
