The World's Best: Dimash Kudaibergen should have been paired with someone more his equal for an epic battle round
Though everyone is happy Kudaibergen made it to the next round, this battle was an easy win and he should have been paired with someone who is more his equal
Previously, Wednesday meant midweek blues, but nowadays it has got everyone sitting in front of their TV waiting for The World's Best to air. The World's Best is a new reality TV competition series that showcases talent from all around the world in different genres.
Hosting this new series is James Corden, the famous talk show host. Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill compromise the judging panel. Along with them, there are 50 other experts who hail from all over the world. They are known as the 'Wall of the World.' These judges are professionals from different genres in the entertainment industry. They will help the main panel of judges decide on the winner.
After the auditions were done and dusted, we were left with the top 24 contestants. And last week, we saw ten of them face off in battles where only the winning five advanced to the championship rounds. If you ask me, though most of the battles were more or less paired perfectly, there were a couple of battle pairings that wasn't fair to either, one of which was the battle between Kazakh superstar Dimash Kudaibergen and Sister Cristina Scuccia, otherwise known as the 'Singing Nun.'
Kudaibergen, also known as the 'Six Octave Man,' is already a famous superstar, well known by many, and compared to Sister Cristina, his voice is far better, which makes pairing the duo a questionable choice. Though both of their voices are literally music to everyone's ears, this was not an epic face-off pair.
Kudaibergen is a professional singer, has performed in various competitions and is recognized everywhere. Whereas Sister Cristina, though she is also amazing with her voice, has a lot less experience on the professional stage.
Though everyone is happy Kudaibergen made it to the next round, this battle was an easy win and he should have been paired with someone who is more his equal. Kudaibergen and Sister Cristina was not the only questionable battle pairs, there was one more pair that should not have been made to battle against each other - Daneliya Tuleshova 'The Vocal Wonder' and 'The Miracle Violinist' Manami Ito.
The duo was not even from the same group. Comparing and judging a battle between a singer and a violinist should not have been done, because it makes no sense. Both of them are great at what they do and making them battle against each other was nothing but poor choice in my opinion. One battle that would have been great to watch, would have been Kudaibergen against Tuleshova. Both of their voices are amazing and it would have been a tough yet epic battle to watch.
With all that said and done, all we can do now is hope and wait Wednesday's round 2 of the battle rounds would do justice and that we get to see epic battles.
'The World's Best' airs every Wednesday at 9 pm on CBS. Check your local listings for more information.
