  • What is so great about Vanilla Ice?

    The Knack started out the show, looking and sounding old & boring. Haddaway came next singing his classic "What Is Love?". Again, nothing too impressive. Tommy Tutone ("867-5309 Jenny") sounded about the same, for better or for worse. The Motels' Martha Davis sounded outstanding on their classic hit "Only The Lonely". Vanilla Ice was then greeted to what sounded like a million screaming girls as he performed "Ice Ice Baby", with a lot of back-up (ok, lead) from his DJ. The second half of the show saw The Knack be old and boring, again. This was followed by Haddaway doing a lackluster performance of Britney Spear's "Toxic". Next Tommy Tutone killed "All The Small Things", originally by Blink 182. The Motels attempted a rocked out version of Norah Jones' hit single "Don't Know Why". This is likely what made them second to Vanilla Ice, who finished the show with his rendition of the Destiny's Child song "Survivor" and won the competition. Or is what brought it home for Ice the fact that 3/4 of the studio audience looked to be girls between the ages of 10-25? Assured they were voting for Vanilla's 'artistic talent'.
