Abysmal OMI performance live on AGT: proof that Music Biz isn't about music anymore
Chart-topping singer OMI performed live on NBC's "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" and was off-key for most of the song. It could have been for a number of reasons; 1) maybe the audio signal from his microphone was turned down, 2) maybe the volume in his earbud headph...

Seems like EVERYONE, OMI and his band, were out of time with the music and with each other.  OMI is not a talented singer by any means, but I think the abysmal performance may have had to do with that.  The only people on time during that performance were the dancers.
