Anyone think.. that..
« on: September 17, 2018, 12:43:23 PM »
Does anyone think that Bono should become a judge on The Voice or X factor?
I'm really interested to see what fans think.
I mean, in one aspect it could be really good for U2s popularity.

I donít think Bono would be interested. Heís got more than enough on his plate as it is. I could see him appearing on one of those shows to promote his causes though.

No. Never. Nope. He canít even hold his own notes. Bono sings in his own way...

No; I think there's too much of a packaged vibe on those shows that would not fit with Bono's punk or iconoclastic sensibilities.

No. Real artists become popular by creating great art, not appearing on degrading TV shows.

I don't watch the shows but I heard Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys were judges, and that they were very intelligent and thoughtful with their input, and also kind. Certainly they are high caliber artists.

OTOH, I'm not a fan of the nasty drama I've heard about (not from PW or AK). Are all those shows mired in that crap?

I thought Bono would be like PW and AK - kind, smart, possibly funny sometimes. It would put him in front of an audience who isn't as familiar with him.

The other thing is, would a Bono Carpool Karaoke have gone well earlier in the year? If he had done just the hits plus RFD that would have put the song on a lot of people's radars.

I don't watch any of those shows and wouldn't if Bono became a fixture either, but i do think it might help his public persona and would be a way to actually attract a younger crowd- because referring to himself as a punk sure isn't helping.

I had no clue what these shows were.  Google solved that problem.

I think it would be a mistake for Bono to be a judge on those mainstream shows.  He doesn't need the promotion and he is well above what those shows seem to offer.  I just can't picture him doing it and I don't want him doing it.

No. He and the band should try and promote the talents of some of the kids that have benefitted from Music Generation in Ireland.  The new breed as it were.  U2 have funded Music Generation which is a programme to ensure all school children should have the opportunity to take up a musical instrument (or singing?) and spend time developing their talents through additional learning outside of formal classes.

Nope. Either continue the current tour, or start writing and recording the next album.
