BET Sunday Best hopeful Dennis Brigham‘s audition has made the headlines…for all the wrong reasons. Brigham has stumbled upon social media’s platform for the latest and greatest viral sensation following Sunday evening’s season premiere of the hit show. Though not much in gospel music actually goes ‘viral’, the audition is certainly destined for reality show infamy! Dennis had harsh words for gospel music industry legends and Pastors Donnie McClurkin and Kim Burrell on Sunday night’s premiere when he (dared to) chide them for laughing during his critique.
Dennis is no stranger to them, having auditioned six times total. His critique was less than shining and it looked as if his ticket to the next round wasn’t going to be punched, when he turned his attention to the veteran judges. His frustration was clear and his comments were painfully direct. Was he right or did he overreact, knowing he was going home? A case can be made for each answer. Which one was he?
Was Dennis a menace?
Most contestants lash out at the judges as they deflect their frustration on those with their destiny in their hands. It happens on nearly every show. If Simon Cowell could trademark his caustic commentary, he’d be the richest man in the world right now. Each televised talent show has a harsh critic, a cynic who’s time can’t be wasted. It’s copyright infringement to see the same personality on the plethora of shows gracing the small screen. Many contestants still fail to thoroughly prepare for greatness in the eyes of the judges, leading to many heated exchanges. When all else fails, personal attacks are par for the course on the way out the door!
