Yup. Creep factor of 8/10 they look godam scary, not quite kids anymore but something from a horror movie.Toddlers and Tiaras
It actually ticks me off watching these "parents" force their kids into rubbish like this.
You're telling me. Last week, the one chick contestant didn't know shït but he still edged her along. And the week before, some 12 yr old in the audience got the question and he was really well done to that mooi klein dogtertjie and it was way creepy. And that bongo drummer - he sings all weird like he wants to eat your children.
