i'm no fan of hip-hop & rap, but with all the people they audition for the show, you've got to think they get some Rappers, but they are NEVER seen. i guess my question is How do they filter it out? and has anyone ever heard an explanation from the producers as to why there is no rap on the show? (MY answer would BE.."Because its a SINGING COMPETITION") maybe its theirs too, but i haven't heard anyone ask the question, or have heard an answer)
Well, one season did have Blake Lewis who was beat boxing.
