We just love hearing our favorite actors and actresses explaining why they got into the business!
Aww, we just love tradition!
So, what was YOUR favorite I'm An Actor speech?
The Rocket Man just dissed his country's top singing competition with the righteous wrath of an angry lavender-scented God!
"Nobody on The Voice in America has had a hit record. Nobody on The Voice in England has had a hit record - they're nonentities. Television and video have done a lot of damage to music. They've propelled people into stardom that aren't ready for it, you know, and can't sustain it. And they're only as good as the next song. I hate that. I hate people being cast aside. It breaks my heart to see people like Michelle McManus who won 'Pop Star' [Pop Idol], whatever it was, but it's not fair."
Tell us how you really feel, Sir Grumpy Pants!!
The 66-year-old Tiny Dancer singer does have a tiny point, though — these shows aren't always helping the cream of the crop get started in the industry!
We have one super-sweet solution:
ELTON SHOULD JOIN THE CAST!!!
He is literally music royalty! If anyone can help The Voice become a positive influence on the music industry, it should be him!!
