How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
well I can appreciate the history of the show and the fact that two of the cast members have sang together for many years, overall i was disapointed. one of the three male singers clearly didn't know the lyrics well and at times, i wasn't sure if he was even singing. furthermore, he didn't know the dance moves well. the costumes were not great. in the opening number, the lead male was wearing shoes and clothing that he would wear everyday now. also, i would recommend him putting a shirt on. the costumes were very obviously very low budget and looked really shoddy. at one point, one of the women's costumes also pushed me out of the door. they did have a lot of energy and some of them had great voices. the songs they chose were good although the finale of LiveAid could have been replaced with something more relevant to Motown. they were trying to recognize Michael Jackson but another song choice would have worked better.
