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."
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!"
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!
"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!
This must have been such an exciting weekend for them!
Before their amazing gig at the end of Academy Awards, the PS 22 Chorus had the chance to perform at Disneyland the day before the ceremony, as well as enjoy the theme park and meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse!
Check out some shots of their special day (above and below)!
We can't tell you how excited we are for them! This is a moment they will cherish all of their lives!
Yesterday, the kids who make up the chorus at Staten Island's PS 22 hoped aboard a plane heading for Hollywood. On Sunday, this group of extraordinary kids, along with their director Mr. B, will be performing at the Academy Awards!
Check out the video (above) to see how elated the kids are to be heading our way and how the excitement started for them the moment they stepped into the airport!
