What the freaking hell, what does Seyi Shay feel like sef, this is a 17 year old boy with a good voice that just needs training and she straight up told him he was horrible and the singing thing would never work, this is supposed to be a platform to help talents. I'm so disgusted pic.twitter.com/91Pqs57mZC

Just watched the Seyi Shay video and I was almost in tears. The guy even said "I was nervous". It took alot for him to get up there and she treated him like that. I feel so bad.
