The trouble is that there may be some really good performers whom one throroughly enjoys hearing, some who are not too bad, and some who (in one's personal opinion) are appalling. It then depends whether the positives outweigh the negatives.

One would hope that indeed: the trouble is that in some singarounds nearly everyone seems to get about the same amount of applause, regardless of how good or bad they are. I don't object to even the weakest performer getting some acknowledgement of their efforts, but I do wish that the better ones (in whatever sense of "better") would get due recognition.
