Artists I'd Like to Kick – the second list
May 26, 2010 by Norman Lebrecht
All day long, people have been volunteering entries for the list of musicians who should never be allowed back on a classical label. Adding to the first ten I named, here’s a second crossover sin bin from a wide range of readers:
11 Katherine Jenkins – how could I forget the ‘opera singer’ who cannot sing an opera?
12 Bocellism – as one wit refers to him.
13 Ex-advertising composer Karl Jenkins
14 Publishing dynast composer Ludovico Einaudi
15 Somebody known as Rhydian
16 Diminutive tenor Alfie Boe
17 Amelia Ferrugia (who she?)
18 One-hit wonder Susan Boyle
19 World cellist Yo Yo Ma
and never to be forgotten
20 Electric violinist Vanessa Mae.
Keep your nominations flooding in.
