In light of NBC ordering a new singing competition from the creators of “The Voice” and ABC’s recently launched “Duets“, this Funny or Die parody seems very appropriate. Forget the competitors, nowadays, it’s all about the judges on these talent shows. It seems every musician wants to land a gig critiquing young hopefuls. Who can blame them? “American Idol” practically revived Jennifer Lopez’s career and “The Voice” made people forget about Christina Aguilera’s horrific one-two punch of “Bionic” and “Burlesque“.
In a brand new clip from the folks over at Funny or Die, they poke fun at this judging craze. Titled “U B DA Judge“, the parody features Debbie Gibson, Natalie Imbruglia, Meat Loaf, Brian McKnight, Warren G and even Rebecca Black all vying to receive the golden subpoena (instead of ticket) to bring them one step closer to becoming America’s next judging sensation. Hosted by Judge Dredd (remember that awful Sly Stallone film), the wannabe judges prove their ability to drop one-liners and hilarious insults to a trio of judicial experts which includes a tennis line judge. Watch the insults zing back and forth below.
My favorite lines were when they referred to Shania Twain as Shania Twat and calling Jon Secada, Jon Suck Harder. LOL. What moments made you laugh out loud? Sound off below.
