    The music competitions are also bringing new music to our knowledge. One of my favorites that I learned about while watching The Voice was, Mad World.

    John Legend is a traitor and hypocrite! He praises Harvey Weinstein and takes pictures with him then believes these two devils fraudumentary that falsely accuses MJ of molestation. He says nothing about DT grabbing vaginas, governor Weiner, and others in his privileged circle in the Hollywood pedophilia world. Will never buy his music any longer! He gave me a "Green Light" to say away from his music.

    Sorry man but why do people take these idiots serious who have to say on TV that they are rich... and no it was no joke.. i mean this guy has really nothing to say.. he can sing and that it. nothing more. This is a classic example of the peter principle... this guy rises to his level of incompetence.... but his confidence saves his ass but cannot make up for the meaningless comments he is making.

    Dear john doe, never heared of sociopaths ? Its been scientificly told that most CEO's, so no doubt presidents are like that. Its not because you see a nice person on the outside, or just behave himself for a festive evening that he doesnt have a truckload full of corpses at home !!!!
    Maybe you also missed the FACT that micheal osama isnt a woman but a tranny, a man, a bloke.... dressed in womenclothes ??!! Travel for once to the eastern countries, where they have plenty of this '3rd' type of genders.
    You may have egod or whatever for trophees for acting, singing and other jobs of no effort that make you rich to feed 1000 people for life...... maybe that's a good way for you to contribute to worldwide problems. But you, same as every other hollywood celeb, vote democrate but behave as spoiled little brads that never worked a day in your lives, and have no clue what the struggle of life is !!!!
    So please retarded fossil, keep your fancy mouth shut, and learn before you speak out. Same goes for that south african liar in front of you.

    Regarding streaming; the pay per play is pitifully low. Terribly so. One cannot live off of a song that may have a million plays via streaming. And that’s wrong.
