I’m (unfortunately) reminded of Peter Weber’s present Group Dates, where participants had been designed to sashay straight down a catwalk or pose in swimsuits for a photoshoot.
Their shows had been never ever judged with their actual runway walk or modelling abilities, but also for how convincing their “chemistry” with Peter was (code for just just exactly how willingly they’ll stir up drama. )
That system is more defensible in that it really was some of the very little time with Peter they’d get that day, and those women weren’t actual runway or swimsuit models in a way. We weren’t passing up on some exciting or artistry that is collaborative them perhaps not concentrating on their “craft” or correctly representing their abilities. But on Listen To Your Heart, the singing and playing is exactly what these participants do. They certainly were cast with regards to their talent—why cast them with it, limiting their options to collaborating based predominantly on romance, not artistic or creative compatibility for it and then stifle what they can do?
