Rebecca Black, Kreayshawn + More Audition to Be Reality Show Judges
Hosted by Judge Dredd, ‘U Be Da Judge’ pits Kreayshawn, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and a clumsy Warren G against one another in an effort to become a judge on a singing competition show. They’re going meta!
The judges — who are judging the contestants’ ability to be judges (are you following this?) — explain that in order to be a reality show judge, you need to be one of three types: “The mean one, the pushover or the Randy Jackson.”
Perry Farrell appeals to the panel as being the rock n’ roll voice. “You always need a rocker judge,” he offers. “I could do what Steven Tyler‘s doing.” Farrell then launches into Tyler’s signature vocal histrionics, but doesn’t impress them. Kreayshawn (who looks a lot better with black and pink long hair than the blonde and black mess she sported until recently) tells the panel, “I’ll show you how good of a judge I am.” She does this by, well, judging the judges. Warren G’s buzzer-slamming skills were moving enough to earn him a pass to next round.
Debbie Gibson’s audition was by the far the most brief (and pretty hilarious), and she was followed by Natalie Imbruglia, a former judge for Australia’s ‘X Factor‘. “If you want to be a reality show music judge, you have to be able to dispense vague, parting wisdom to contestants.” It’s a much trickier skill than you’d think.
Serj Tankian of System of a Down was next, and he waxed philosophically instead of doing what most presumed he was there for, and was followed by Rogerwaters (not to be confused with Roger Waters) dismissing a whole slew of others in rapid succession. Rebecca Black was the next to get a pass, as she “knows a lot about judgment” following her release of the most viral and worst song ever. Who were the finalists picked for the panel?
