I have to agree with 602miko....

They dont really sound good as singers, but acting is a different story. From what I learned from a japanese friend, is that sometimes the industry may not be looking for something that sounds good, what they want its the good looks and the spirit of being an artist. Which is pretty understandable in some cases....
