How would John Lennon & Bob Dylan fare on The Voice?
PEOPLE who sneer at shows like The X Factor and The Voice often wonder how singers of the past would fare. Would Screamin’ Jay Hawkins get Simon Cowell’s approval? Would someone like Nina Simone stand a chance against Olly Murs if it all went to deadlock?
The fact of the matter is, no-one should really care because the 60s were a completely different time where record companies had loads of money to take loads of chances and, most importantly, X Factor is to music what WWE is to sport – it’s just telly!
Either way, over in the States, The Voice USA have made a video where John Lennon and Bob Dylan appear… and you know something? It’s funny than 99% of the jibes spat out by detractors!
Lennon performs ‘Imagine’ to Blake Shelton, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Shakira and Usher, and of course, they’re all a bit critical and get booed.
Bob Dylan’s appearance is priceless though.
