I beg to differ.



It's not about what you "like". "Like" is one thing, objective quality another.



No, you're wrong.
Yes, of course "you can be a great artist yet lack technical proficiency''...I can't believe you even question that.

If Neil Young or Bob Dylan were on 'The X Factor' or 'American Idol' they wouldn't get past the first round, why? Because they are not great artists? No, they wouldn't get past the first round because they are not 'proficient singers' That is why talent shows, like award ceremonies, mean **** all.

Art is not about "objective quality" and if you really believe otherwise then I'm afraid it is you who is wrong.
