Passion directly equates with the width of your mouth.And the only real way you can legitimately open your mouth that wide is if you are singing out one really long, continuous note with your eyes closed as if you are lost in that one moment. Here is a picture I drew to illustrate.
Once their song is all over then everyone will jump around and start clapping and honking like sea lions and the contestant will say something
lame mushy like “I’ve wanted to be a singer since I was a
foetus” or “I just want to make someone in my extended family proud who may or
may not be dead” and all that contrived nonsense. Meanwhile I just feel
very, very tired.
