saw music

anonymous asked:

Wonder why Billboard is desperately overhyping Camila? Besides Roger's sister working for them, they're declining so fast they're struggling to attach to the next big thing early for relevancy. Camila + 5H get tons of social media engagement from a young fandom. "This year's Billboard Music Awards saw a -20% decline in ratings compared to last year's show. It drew an average of 2.3M viewers."

wait… ROGER’S SISTER WORKS FOR THEM?????? bitch what

Things from musicals that are so perfect they are borderline erotic

When Jonathan Groff first comes in in The Bitch of Living.
The third and fourth “burn"s in Burn and Phillipa Soo’s voice all the time. Shoutout to the final “mine” too; that’s gorgeous.
Pia Douwes’s voice, and how it is somehow simultaneously smooth and pure and beautifully rough.
The harmonies at the end of Make Up Your Mind/Catch Me I’m Falling.
The “or"s at the end of lines in Pretty Women.
“Would you think so badly of me” in Sonya and Natasha.
The dissidence of "trees” in Darkness and Trees.
How Phillipa Soo’s voice blends perfectly with the violins in Natasha Lost.
“I wish I could fly” from Superboy and the Invisible Girl.
That thing in The Bitch of Living when they are all jumping around chaotically and then suddenly are frozen singing “do they think we want this?” (Start at 2:40 for the full effect.)
That thing Karen David does in like every song in Galavant where her voice changes pitch slightly and damn.
The way “sadness” is sung in Don’t Do Sadness. Also the strings.
The piano in Hurricane.
The thing they do in Stop the World with the turntable and the chairs and everyone singing in a really lovely harmony with just the perfect amount of dissidence and sweet damn I love everything about it.
The harmonies in Boote in Der Nacht.
JD’s part in Our Love is God.
Absolutely everything about how Philippa Soo sings Times Are Hard for Dreamers. (Her voice is 15% of this list and that’s me holding back help it’s so beautiful.)
Magaldi’s verse in On This Night of a Thousand Stars.
Renée Elise Goldsberry rapping. And singing.
Both “nothing, it was nothing, I didn’t lead him on at all” and “back in the theatre full of light” in Natasha Lost.
Jenn Colella singing her phone call in Phoning Home.
Jenn Colella everywhere else let’s be real.
When Eva starts singing in High Flying Adored.
The instrumental part at the beginning of Wen Ich Tanzen Will. And the way they say “tanzen” it is amazing.
How syrupy and rich Jasmine Cephas Jones’ voice is in Say No to This.
That part of Seventeen when JD and Veronica are singing “seventeen” together and he’s singing higher than her.
The end of My Eyes. Vocally, and the choreography.
“Sing a song of forge-e-e-ting” from the song of that name.
Everything about Sophie McShera’s voice, especially when she’s singing her parts of A Happy Ending for Us.
The slight roughness in John Gallagher Jr.’s voice.
How drowsy and sexy Idina Menzel’s voice is in As Long As You’re Mine.
Also when she sings “it well may be” in For Good. (It’s nice for different reasons of course.)
Chris Jackson’s voice in One Last Time. And in every other song.

Tyler's instagram live (in case you missed it)

- he’s proud of us
- Jenna had to show him how to use the live video
- he was in his woods, he goes there a lot, and even though it’s his personal space, he “let us in there for a little bit” (not exact quote, but close enough)
- he’s proud of us
- he bought a leafblower and thanked us for it
- he’s proud of us
- he never had to buy a leafblower before, because he never had his own place where leaves could fall, so he never needed one. but now he does, because of us
- he’s proud of us
- he and Josh didn’t go to the Billboard awards because it would have been hard to organise it (and also he didn’t really want to go either)
- he doesn’t really like music awards
- when he was younger, he had to show his music to house guests whenever someone was over. he never wanted to, but sometimes he still showed them his music. every time he did, he was happier afterwards.
- he feels like they wouldn’t be here now without us giving them a little nudge to keep doing there music
(- also I think he might have said something like he wouldn’t even be here at all, but I didn’t fully understand that sentence)
- he’s proud of us
- he’s asking us to be patient with them, they are working on new music (!!!)
- he saw a deer walking by, he went to find it
- he had a bit trouble with turning off the live stream, but eventually did it

Alright I’ve already seen criticism that Percy has not been cast as a twelve-year-old and I’m going to list two good reasons why he’s not:

1) Child Labor Laws. For the musical Matilda they had to cast four girls to play one role so that they didn’t overwork them. They could do that here, except you have many, many twelve-year-olds to cast. Quadruple that amount, at least for the leads, and thats a lot of extra money to pay. It’s easier to just hire a few adult actors.

2) They would have to cast a girl to play Percy, or at least not a cis boy. Because twelve-year-old cis boys are just at the beginning of puberty, and you know what happens then? Their voices drop. Often, overnight. Imagine if the kid’s voice droppedjn the middle if a preformance? You know how hard it is to sing when your voice ISN’T on the fritz because of hormones? Cause I do.

It is so much easier to hire an adult, especially for a live musical. Movies, you can get around stuff like that, because it'a not filmed in order. You can film with your child actors up to the limit each day and make a movie in a decent amount of time, movies have no excuse. Live musicals are harder to make, they have to preform EVERY NIGHT. Usually MULTIPLE TIMES. Give them credit for the work they’ve done so far!
