  • Hey wait, Simon!

  • Simon would've hit stop by now

  • - if he was as same as the flute guy. - Yeah.

  • Why are you guys cheering that?

  • Why do they all have to like... strip?

  • There's something about stripping that people just love.

  • Yeah, that's right!

  • *cough*

  • America's Got Talent!

  • Cringe!

  • We've got some more clips that we dug out from...

  • past year's archives.

  • Oh man, let's enjoy it together.

  • Let's all sit down,

  • - Take a deep breath.Yeah! - cook some marshmallows.

  • Get the crackers.

  • I'm Simeon Wood, and I'm a musician.

  • So, how long have you been doing what you do?

  • Cos I don't know- I don't know what he does.

  • I've been playing the flute since I was 8 years old.

  • Could've at least had a guessing game, mate!

  • Oh, this is Britain's Got Talent.

  • No wonder the comedy sucks.

  • No, just kidding.

  • I'm kidding!

  • I'm kidding!

  • We love you, Britain.

  • Just kidding, just kidding.

  • Are you hiding it?

  • I am.

  • Is it what you have behind your back?

  • I saw it earlier. It's a crutch, isn't it?

  • - Yeah, it is a crutch, yeah. - Yeah.

  • Thanks, yeah.

  • - Do you want to see it? - So- Yes, please.

  • Okay, here we are.

  • There you go.

  • - Got his crutch out. - Yes.

  • I can actually play...

  • my crutch.

  • That's not something you hear every day.

  • Just dub over some random midi flute file over-

  • - Like his fingers weren't even moving. He just put it- - It wasn't even him playing.

  • It was like...

  • - Can you put your bow up? - Yeah, here we go.

  • Just, just...

  • - Let's skip to the performance. - Yeah.

  • - It's the same thing... - Dude, that looks so fake.

  • - It is the same formula as the other one! - It looks so fake.

  • He just started playing. How do you start yawning just...

  • Yeah, like boredom sinks in in 2 seconds.

  • Yeah.

  • - Sorry, I can't control myself if I hear a flute. - And just like...

  • I just literally can yawn.

  • But I will say...

  • At least this guy's flute playing

  • sounds better than the stripper guy.

  • Yeah, that's true.

  • - Yeah, yeah, the stripper guy was so out of tune. - Yeah, yeah.

  • - Yeah. - This guy's actually...

  • - He's got something there. - Yeah.

  • Another...

  • - Are you serious? - Oh... It's the same formula as the piano one!

  • The piano dancing guy.

  • They also had an audience yawn.

  • Bro...

  • Do you guys see that?

  • When you watch the next TwoSet video, just go...

  • - What the... - What the hell?

  • Oh wow!

  • What the...

  • Dude, why is everyone cheering?

  • It is the same thing!

  • It's the same formula, guys, like...

  • Like...

  • How many times are they gonna do this formula

  • before people realise...

  • it's all scripted television...

  • - Again, this- - I guess this is why they do it cos it works.

  • It works, but again,

  • there's nothing wrong with the performer.

  • Yeah, nothing against this guy.

  • He can play the flute.

  • It's just sad that-

  • He has to pull out a crutch to get everyone's

  • - "false scripted" attention. - Yeah.

  • Dude, that judge is like...

  • "I've been instructed to clap."

  • Yeah.

  • "I've been instructed to clap."

  • That's right.

  • Standing ovation.

  • Guys.

  • I know how it feels to force happiness.

  • It's all good.

  • Can you imagine being a flautist and seeing this like...

  • You worked so hard all your life, played beautiful mu-

  • - And this guy actually played beautifully in the first half. - Yeah.

  • - He could actually play. - He sounded... great.

  • And then just to have people yawn to that.

  • But then, they give you a standing ovation

  • when you play the crutch.

  • Like don't get me wrong.

  • It's entertaining. It's creative.

  • It's different, but...

  • A. It's a gimmick.

  • - Yeah. - B. I question how much talent is required in doing it.

  • I'd say... the first... the flute is much more talented.

  • Oh yeah, the flute playing is much more talented.

  • There's a lot more hardwork in it.

  • Yeah.

  • And...

  • See...

  • Standing ovation, really?!

  • Like, if that was true,

  • then there should be a lot of crutch performances

  • in the Carnegie Hall by now.

  • Yeah, hahahaha!

  • I wonder what the Royal Concertgebouw thinks of this.

  • I know.

  • Next one!

  • - Oh, that was only one. - Is there anything you want to say?

  • - Yeah, I just remember we need to speed it up. - Oh my god...

  • That was the first one.

  • My name is Adrian Romoff.

  • I'm 9 years old, and I'm from Atlanta, Georgia.

  • - Oh, we did a performance in Atlanta, Georgia. - Yeah, it was a great, great place to do a concert,

  • - You guys were awesome! - Yeah.

  • I have another talent.

  • I'm very good at science.

  • But you know, you can't be a doctor at age 5, correct?

  • You can be a musician though!

  • He's only... 9, it's fine.

  • It's okay. He will learn.

  • Do you think he genuinely said that?

  • - Or someone- - Or...

  • - gave it, yeah. - Or the script. It's like...

  • - I think someone gave him the script. - "We're gonna package you as the little..."

  • "overly confident child genius."

  • Almost like... Ah... I don't know.

  • When I play piano, I express my feelings,

  • and I express them with the audience.

  • Judge: Who are you?

  • I'm Adrian.

  • And how old are you, Adrian?

  • I'm 9 years old.

  • - You're 9 years old! - Aww...

  • And you will be doing what for us today?

  • I'll be playing piano.

  • It's not a piano, it's a keyboard.

  • - And what grade are you in right now? - 8th grade.

  • 8th grade?

  • I skipped 5 grades.

  • - I was gonna say! - Why?

  • One more thing I wanna know,

  • how many hours a day do you practice?

  • Um... I don't really look at the clock.

  • But um...

  • Even though we have one right in front of me, but um...

  • No, not there. At home.

  • Yeah-

  • That's a very good way to...

  • dodge the question.

  • - Yeah, I don't really look at the clock. - I don't really look at the clock.

  • But do you do 40 hours!?

  • (both) Hmmmm...

  • - We'll find out! - Let's find out!

  • (Why are we still here?)

  • Ow, that took me by surprise...

  • "Piano playing is all about emotion..."

  • proceeds to play FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEE!!!

  • I, I... I...

  • I feel I don't want to roast him cos he's a 9-year-old.

  • Yeah.

  • But I feel like we owe the non-classical world,

  • - so that they know what a musician would hear. - Yeah.

  • - Yeah. - Right?

  • So...

  • I mean, okay, I get it, like

  • The talent show's portraying him as a genius,

  • plays a lot, whatever, 16 million views.

  • If you listen just to that opening,

  • D-g-d-g-d-g-d-g-d. He was like...

  • Du-rrr-rr-Luh-rr-rr...

  • The rhythm wasn't even.

  • And there was missing notes.

  • Yeah.

  • The rhythm wasn't even.

  • And what was with the sound effects from the keyboard?

  • That's true.

  • It's like...

  • It's the equivalent of the sacrilegious boy playing electric violin

  • by using electric violin with like processed audio.

  • - Tone is no longer a factor to worry about. - Yeah.

  • It doesn't matter how- your touch, your articulation...

  • It just sounds like "meh-"

  • Because if you're an actual pianist,

  • you'll know the difficulties of...

  • just the weight and all the inflections you need

  • can create just from touching the key.

  • Yeah. So...

  • Oh man...

  • - Yeah. Yeah. - Roughly, right?

  • But he was kinda like...

  • But...

  • Look, like not to say anything against that, but...

  • Just...

  • - This is just the set-up to it. The lead-up to it. - Yeah.

  • It seems to be a common thing about knocking stools down.

  • Man, these are the formulas for success.

  • Whoa... man...

  • A M a z I n G ! !

  • Whoa...

  • A M A-

  • Alright, let's...

  • I just wanna clarify something like...

  • Again...

  • He's...

  • Nothing against the player.

  • None of what we're saying here

  • is anything against the contestants.

  • What he did there was pretty impressive for a 9-year-old.

  • Yeah.

  • But as a classical musician, it's not...

  • "WOW, this guy is the next 9-year-old genius!"

  • WOW, Alma, watch out!

  • It's just... Yeah, I mean...

  • Yeah, there's nothing against him.

  • It's just... Knowing what we know about TV,

  • it seems very... just oversensationalized and scripted.

  • I wouldn't be surprised if the TV producers asked him to

  • - act very cocky. - Act, yeah. And then...

  • - And then like the poor kid copping the consequences. - Yeah.

  • Whatever...

  • I mean I don't know what's the situation like now, but...

  • with the online stuff as well, right?

  • Yeah, people in the comments are like...

  • "He's so egotistical blah blah blah..."

  • But maybe he's just a kid in-

  • He doesn't...

  • He doesn't know what's going on.

  • He's just there to do a show.

  • Mhm.

  • He probably got told what to say

  • for the sake of this "talent show."

  • I don't know!

  • Maybe I'm looking too much into it.

  • Who knows?

  • Just cos I'm-

  • I'm just salty cos I've practiced my whole life.

  • Yeah, I know.

  • We should just kick piano stools

  • and play on electric violins, and then...

  • That's why I quit piano hey.

  • It's like k-

  • - I didn't kick the piano stool. - Yeah.

  • I'm Janine.

  • And I'm Sue.

  • And how old are you both?

  • - 23, both 23. - Yeah.

  • Okay, what's the act?

  • Simon again?

  • Man, this is from 2009!

  • He's been doing this for 10 years!

  • Wow...
