You may love Glee, but we are all about John Burrough's Powerhouse Show Choir!

They have completely blown our minds!!

    I went to Burbank high (Burroughs' Rival) and Blake Lively was on our Choir, So I can imagine the talen that will come from Burroughs. Burbank is full of talented kids, this is not news to us :) Burbank Rules!

    I watched that Oprah show. Their performance was impressive. The costumes, choreography, etc. The singing, not to much though. Too many people singing so it sounded messy. Maybe if there were only a handful of people singing certain parts or something it could've sounded better instead of them all singing everything.

    that chick at the end sucked…. who let her do the 'solo'.. there wasnt much to screw up, but by golly, somehow she did it.. lols
    anyhoo, i liked them.. the costumes were good, it was good synchronized and choreografed and they even made me sit through a madonna song, which takes a lot.. lol

    i graduated from burroughs two years ago !! This is insane !!!



  10. 10

    waaa madonna would feel bad for them! ugly performance!



  11. 11

    yay burroughs!!!
    this was from last year's competition set, and the new members had to learn it in a week.



  12. 12

    Is it just me, or is the guy with the "4 Mins" solo at 3:30ish effing TERRIFYING.



  13. 13

    i am in a such a glee mood
    so im like loving this right now



  14. 14

    WOOOW… that really fell apart at the end with those two shitty solo's … esp. when it sounded like the one guy's balls dropped mid line



  15. 15

    I tuned in to watch the Glee cast, not some high school unknowns that took up 20 minutes of Glee time!

    This really wasn't that good. The solo's failed.



  18. 18

    loved it i'm sure if madonna would see this she would love it 2.

    Not trying to be unkind, but since they are from a creative school or so it seems they were not that good at all. I am from Minnesota and have heard regular senior high school choir sound much better. If it is true that the school taught them the song just before the show, that was a mistake the school made, not the students. You don't put out a non solid, just learned performance for more pizazz, better to put out a very solid performance that is not as flashy. And solos should always go to the more talented, which obviously did not happen here. It does not take being in Cali to figure that one out.



  20. 20

    They dont have nothing on Glee!!!



  21. 21

    cute!! lol its like a real life glee



  22. 22

    horrid



  23. 23

    John Burroughs High School is a public high school with very hard working kids. I am very proud of them. They rock!!



  24. 24

    It was pretty, but it wasn't impressive IMO. Maybe because they were dancing and moving. The only solo I thought sounded good was the guy singing "4 minutes". Just sounded messy and they needed more powerful sounding people for the solos. Only 4 min guy sounded just right for his solo.
    Not that I can do ANY of that LOL :)



  25. 25

    Not so hot in reality. For sure, the girl and guy at the end were more than BAD. A few costumes and choreography do not make a show choir good. Seen a ton of better choirs performing at State competitions. Sorry, Perez, like all other things you report on, this is was not up to par

    Re: proudshowchoirmom – I bet your student is proud that you are spending time on the Perez Hilton website defending them. Go burn a pie for the soccer game.



  27. 27

    I agree with previous posters. Solo's at the end really tanked. But I don't think it was horrible or anything of the sort. It was rather entertaining, and I'm always a fan of seeing classics revisted! Perhaps with more prep/practice time and better soloists it would be better.



  28. 28

    thats my highschooool!



  29. 29

    I bet high school glee clubs everywhere are getting a boost from this show. I think their Let the Sunshine In outshined their performance on O. Not bad though.



  30. 30

    that was AWFUL!!!! really really really bad! gosh…



  31. 31

    ok so i was in show choir in southern ca a few years back and competed with Burroughs…let me just say that at least 3 years ago they were the most pretentious, arrogant, rude people i have ever met. yes, they might be very talented, but each kid in john burroughs show choir pays at least $2000 to be in it (thats what it was 3 years ago…its probably more now), all of their parents are in showbusiness (hello, it is Burbank), and they have more lights, sets, equipment, and stage crew than any other high school i have ever heard of…and definitely any in the southern california circuit…Oprah also gave them a massive check and a new grande piano…if anybody needed publicity, fame, money, and prizes, John Burroughs Powerhouse is the last group of people on earth that should get it.



  32. 32

    that bit at the end…………………AWFUL



  33. 33

    I go to john burroughs, and let me just say they are amazing!!! so proud of them it must have been a dream come true..



  34. 34

    great staging, customs, and choreography. the soloist at the end weren't very good.



  35. 35

    Too much emphasis on the dancing, and the singing felt subpar. The last two soloist were rather sucky too. Nice nonetheless.



  36. 36

    i go to burroughs & am in choir there. i am soo proud of powerhouse! they seriously deserved this, they work so hard! JBHS pride :D



  37. 37

    Burbank High's In Sync is as talented if not more! They did a little piece for the Glee Pilot of them performing one of their Disco Medleys. Look up "Burbank High In Sync" on youtube you guys will not be disappointed!! GO BHS!!!!!



  38. 38

    Sounds PHENOMENAL… I'd like to see some of you haters do THAT.



  39. 39

    I watched Oprah and was AMAZED at how wonderful these kids where! I couldn’t believe the talent was coming from high school students. You could tell a lot of hard work and determination went into this showcase. I bet they are inspiring other high schools all around the nation.



  40. 40

    Those kids were absolutely fantastic. They should all be proud of themselves. A bunch of very talented kids!



  41. 41

    Ehhh. Parts of it were good but it was a bit of a train wreck.

  42. bobo says – reply to this


    42

    Yay for public school music programs!!!!!!



  43. 43

    The end kind of killed it for me. It was amazing up until they added 4 minutes. And why did they choose that couple of people to do it? Neither of them was very good.

    Over all though, it was impressive.



  44. 44

    1. They were lip-syncing
    2. Their style of singing does not lend itself to "Vogue" or "Four Minutes".



  45. 45

    1. Not even close to lip-syncing. Burroughs would NEVER do that.
    2. They had to do THIS song/mash-up because that's what Oprah asked for…otherwise they would have rocked something (like Let The Sun Shine In) from their current competition set. They found a YouTube video of the song, and specifically chose Powerhouse because of that song. End of story…what Oprah wants, Oprah gets.
    3. Isn't paying $2000 a year (and yes, I'm a JBHS VMA alumn, and that shit is expensive!) a LOT to ask of kids from a public high school? Let them enjoy their day in the sun.
    4. For a week of rehearsal, they rocked it…but yeah, the solos were kinda weak.



  46. 46

    talented kids, beautiful costumes, but they should have picked another song.hate madonna.



  47. 47

    I thought it was great, loved how they looked ,danced and sounded. Very cool.



  48. 48

    Their version of Let the Sunshine In sounds really good! I love that song.

    Then fucking leave you stupid cun*t.

    it's not hard to learn a routine "in a week" if you just copy Madonna's 1990 VMA performance.



  51. 51

    Wow. Can you people be any more rude? These people have worked their BUTTS off. It's finally time to get the recognition that these kids deserve. They are all so sweet, extremely talented, and rehearse EVERYDAY to get to where they are now. This song was from their set LAST YEAR, and holy hell, why on earth would you ever think that they were lip syncing? That is just pure talent you are hearing, and they wouldn't be asked to go on Oprah if they were just some shit school. Burroughs and Burbank are always the top competitors, and you'd be extremely lucky to even place second if you are competing against them. So shut your rude mouths, and just be proud that they are representing the show choir community. To Burroughs, I love you all and look forward to seeing you guys at Spring Concert! FUCK YEAH. -(ex-choir member from last year)



  52. 52

    ew that guy and girl at the end totally were out of pitch and had no range. they need to work on that. i loved the costumes/makeup. very clever, and cute, though.



  53. 53

    It was nice until the end..that pretty much killed it.



  54. 54

    Actually, the girl was drowning out the guy with her horrible riffs. He is a FANTASTIC singer, and you should try searching him up. Tyler Mann. I love him!



  55. 55

    haters keep hating… you guys are just jealous that you didn't get to be on Oprah. >:D



  56. 56

    Re: Logan
    I would LOVE to see YOU try.
    To quote Jane Lynch from Glee, "Your resentment is DELICIOUS."

    That was so awesome

    madonna was born to be loved and admired
