Okay - cuz I'm bored.

Here is an example of what I'm talking about.

The first clip is Johnny singing "Epiphany".
The second clip is George Hearn knocking it out of the park on the same number.

Notice how much more George does with his voice - because he can. You can hear the anguish, rage, sorrow, frustration in his voice - and the madness.

Now, the Johnny clip ends before the song actually does, but I'm pretty sure that Johnny doesn't sing the last line of the song, which you will hear in George's clip.

"I am alive again and I am full of joy."

It's that last line that just sends the creepy-meter into the red zone.

Look, I'm a Johnny fan and he does a creditable job in this role, especially for a non-singer. But this is exactly why you cast a SINGER. There's a clip on YouTube of Johnny talking about being asked "can you do it? can you sing it?" and he replies, "I don't know." Is that really how you should approach a musical project? "Hmmmm...Johnny would look great in the role. I wonder if he can sing?"
