Thumbs up We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

All I have to say is that Im extremely glad it's for a good cause.

Other than that ... no comment. PINK's part was great though.

And Michael Jackson made a cameo too.

So did Lil Wayne's autotune!

And guess who opens the song???

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

Barbra, Burt Bacharah, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef, Lionel Richie, Celine...and Justin Bieber and Miley? Seriously? For once Kanye can say he wasn't the biggest douche bag in the room.

J-Hud looks gorgeous

My buddy on another board said this ...

Quote:
I was done when they had the climax of the songs and there was three rappers there belting in auto-tune and battling it out like they were Whitney, Mariah and Celine. What have we come to my young people? I can't...

What a bunch of low-caliber artists!

Facts are merely opinions and opinions could be wrong.

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

At first I was sad Whitney wasn't going to be a part of it. Then I heard it and now I'm glad she wasn't. Just like others, I too wanted to like it, I actually thought I was going to. This is one of those times where the original shadow is far to wide for the newer version to have it's day in the sun. In order for it to have worked they would have had to work harder in making it less comparable and more contemporary. I hate to say it was an epic FAIL- so I wont....lol

I'll still download the song cuz it's for a great cause- and that's what really matters anyway...

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

The rap,autotune, and Fergie really killed it for me. It's alright and maybe it will grow on me.

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

Don't get me starting on the "rap" part... I just figured with so many musical "greats" behind the project it would have been something more than what it was... oh well.

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

Oh my. That was BAD. I didn't make it to the end of the song.

What's with the shrieking and oversinging.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

What the fuck
This is could have been great, but it's not
I can't believe that they let Lil Wayne and T Pain sing (with auto tune). And the rap/hip Hop part was SO BAD! They wanted to make it "futuristic" but it is crap. The only one who was good was Kanye West. He should have done the rap part alone if they really wanted to make a rap part.
There are others "singers" who ruin this song but I don't even know who they are.

Jennifer Hudson should have replaced all these jokes if they can't get good singers.

But this "We are the world" is interesting. It shows how the music in general is bad right now. Their hip/hop (and autotune) shit is garbage.

I'm not buying this and I'm not even downloading this for free

Re: We Are The World 2.0 - Official Video

i knew it was a bad omen when some unknown youtube kid opens the song. the disaster was confirmed when the rappers started 'singing' with their robotic voices and climaxing in a meaningless rap.

Forget about all the failures you guys have highlighted for a sec, WTF was Wyclef doing?

I have and will donate in other ways.
