PS 22 Chorus Responds To Andy Cohen's Apology!

A lesson that unfortunately has to be learned sometimes!

After Andy Cohen made some less-than-stellar remarks about The PS 22 Chorus and their appearance at the Academy Awards, he rightfully apologized, and choral director Gregg Brienberg smartly used the controversy as a way to teach the kids that sometimes, adults say and do things without thinking just as often as children, and it's important to recognize when you're wrong and admit to it!

Check out the video the group made for Andy, and their performance of Apologize by OneRepublic (above)!

Breinberg also included the following message:

The PS22 Chorus responds to the criticism and the apology from Andy Cohen regarding the kids' Oscars performance. Classy and articulate kids expressing themselves honestly. And Andy, we kid, it's never too late to apologize, and we truly appreciate it, but next time take a lesson from the kids…..

All in good fun!

And the great song is Apologize by One Republic, and it was cool trying 3 part harmony.

What thoughtful comments!

And we're glad that they all openly expressed their feelings about the situation, whether they accept his apology or not!

It's so important to recognize how you're feeling and to be honest with yourself!

Hopefully now they can all put what happened behind them and focus on what's most important: the music!

Bravo's Andy Cohen Apologizes For Slamming The PS 22 Chorus!

Filed under: PS22 ChorusOscarsReality TV

Good! These kids deserved it!

Bravo's Andy Cohen recently caused quite a bit of controversy when he made some truly harsh comments regarding the PS 22 Chorus and their performance at the Academy Awards, but thankfully, realized he took it too far, and used his talk show Watch What Happens Live last night to issue a public apology to the children and award himself with 'Jackhole of the Week!'

He said:

"The Jackhole is yours truly…for comments I made on Morning Joe this morning. Those PS 22 choir kids did not deserve it…I am a product of public education…anyway, I am sorry and I am the Jackhole of the week."

And check out a clip of his apology (above)!

Sounds pretty sincere to us!

Obviously, everyone makes mistakes and we're sure he didn't mean to come off as harsh as he did, but we're very happy to see him taking responsibility for his words and making amends!

Well done, sir!

What do U think?? Did Andy make up for his comments??

PS 22 Choral Director Responds To Andy Cohen's Criticism!

Good! Glad to see them taking the high road - especially after such an uncalled for, unnecessarily mean criticism!

Despite Bravo programming director Andy Cohen's harsh comments toward the PS 22 Chorus and their Oscar performance, choral director Gregg Breinberg isn't letting it bother him, and simply responded by saying:

"Anyone who would diss 10-year-old public school kids probably has some issues."

Agreed!

We can't imagine how brave those kids must have been to get up their and sing in front of such a huge room full of celebrities, and although we think everyone has a right to their opinion, there was no need to lash out in such a negative way - let alone say you wanted to "slit them!"

Way too far!

We think those kids deserve an apology!

Thoughts??

Shame On You, Andy Cohen!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPS22 ChorusOscars

This is just shameful!

While James Franco has been the recipient of most of the criticism regarding this year's Academy Awards, Bravo's Andy Cohen has instead chosen to lash out the PS 22 Chorus' performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow at the end of the ceremony!

He says:

"There was a thing called ‘Up With People’ in the ’70s or ’80s. … Oscar night is not about 'Up With People.' Like, I don’t need to see that. It was just bad. It was just awful. It was horrible. A public school chorus singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow? I literally, if I wasn’t going to go out to some parties, I would have slit them right then. It was the worst. I was looking for a knife to stick in my eyes. It was so terrible. Not the time. Everything has its time and place; the end of the Oscars? We don't want to see this. You just ruined everything."

Wow. Just so uncalled for and waaay too far!

You didn't have to like it, but there is NO need to be this cruel to a group of children!

ESPECIALLY when your idea of a musical performance is having Kim Zolciak or Danielle Staub croak out whatever auto-tuned abomination they've decided to curse the world with on Watch What Happens!

So unfair and mean!

What do U think?? Did Andy take it too far??
