I rated the shows according to specific criteria: quality of performance in comparison to other acts, authenticity of the performance and crowd reaction. The second criterion (authenticity of the performance) refers to how much dubbing or pre-recorded ("canned") music is used during the show. The maximum number of circle "A"s that can be awarded is five, indicating a flawless performance. However, 4 out of 5 doesn't necessarily mean a less than perfect performance; audience reaction may have been low or the performance may have lacked authenticity. Please post comments. I encourage a lively debate.
