There's a lot of bollocks coming out of the UK at the moment though. It seems more and more people are starting to notice, though.

haha yea i figured, thread title wasnt meant to be taken too seriously. im sure theres plenty of talented kids in the us as well as just as much crappy mainstream poppy stuff in other countries. seems like us kind of thrives on that though.

just weird to see someone like this with so much raw talent get overlooked to the likes of someone like rebecca black.

Because that's how the world works, unfortunately. It is a good cover, and unusual for her age, but if she was 19 no-one would care at all.

Well in the sixties you had a bunch of white british guys copying black american guys, then in the 70's you had american guys copying those british guys that copied the american guys. It's all relative I think.
