Sunday Best Rundown | Sunday Best’s Houston Connections
BET’s Sunday Best premiered season 4 to 1.8 million viewers Sunday. What makes the program special is its Houston connection, with Yolanda Adams serving as guest judge last season, Nikki Ross working on the music staff and Kim Burrell serving as mentor to the contestants, Houston is a major force in the attitude and overall sound of the show.
We also got a glimpse of Johnny Johnson Jr. from the Houston group Created for Purpose and Brandon Johnson in the premiere episode.
Social networks were booming during the show and many people did not like judge, Tina Campbell’s attitude. As one contestant was auditioning she put her hands up within 5 seconds to stop her and said with disgust, “No.”
We could cut her some slack, since she has to listen to people that can not sing all day. Also, the show may be edited to show more of her since Donnie McClurkin and Ericka Campbell are not the most comedic/entertaining television personalities for prime-time.
I honestly could not sit through the entire two-episode premiere. I was bored. I’d rather watch the show when it gets to the top 10. Then, you will see Donnie in his element, screaming to the top of his lungs (an anointed scream) and Mary Mary may ‘shout’ this season.
Kirk Franklin’s wardrobe from Baby Gap is also one of the features of the show as it is every season.
What do you think about the new season of Sunday Best?
