Has anyone seen the movie Camp? Sorry, this whole discussion made me think of it.

Indeed it does. And here's a real life white Effie, quite a treat to watch it the whole way through.... :P



I'm sorry if any of you disagree, but this kind of casting should just never happen. It looks and sounds ridiculous.

WTF?!!!! I agree that this should never ever happened and it will never happen again. I'm glad that she wasn't wearing blackface but this was horrible. Why didn't they find a black girl? She butchered that song. It was meant to be sung by a black woman and this girl distorted what the show was about. It was suppose to be about an all black girl singing group. I hope that this never happens and it was ridiculous.
