Ahmet Zappa Still Can’t Answer Musical Question: ‘But Can They Sing

’ LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ahmet Zappa is hosting the new VH1 celebrity singing contest, But Can They Sing, but he’s not sure he can answer that question just yet.

The show debuts Sunday (Oct. 30) and features celebrities like Morgan Fairchild, Larry Holmes, Joe Pantoliano and Bai Ling tackling the microphone.

Zappa has heard some rehearsals – and describes them as “spectacular” – but he’s staying away as much as possible because he wants his own reactions to be as fresh as the TV audience’s.

From what Zappa can tell, the competitors are all trying as hard as possible but he admits, “they’re all nervous. I hope they don’t crack but some might.”

Viewers will ultimately decide who is the best singing celebrity, but the initial performances will be judged by professional voice coaches, who Zappa says would be doing a disservice if they pulled a Paula Abdul and only said positive things.
