JLS made a promotional stop at Fox 5 Morning News recently. The group performed acapella renditions of Ben E. King’s ‘Stand By Me’ and Sean Kingston’s ‘Beautiful Girls’ for the unsuspecting ears of the viewers. Peep their performances below:
Although they may be competent singers individually, something about JLS’ harmonies just does not click. Whether it’s the horribly off-key falsettos or the blatant absence of bass in any of their voices, their sound is very unappealing without the assistance of a backtrack. Add that to their recent attempts at being ‘hood’ and everything just falls apart.
