Something tells me they would have advanced pretty far but would not have made the final 4. I am a big fan of these guys, but I don’t know if they could have pulled off a “dynamic stage presence”, or have showed enough “flexibility” to make it deep into the contest.
Looking at their carreers;
Bing had 383 songs in the top 30 and 41 #1 hits.
Perry had 121 and 13 respectively.
Frank had 130 top 30’s and 6 #1’s.
Frank may have had the looks and the presence to get to the top but may have lacked the flexibility, Bing has shown he can speed things up a little, but he didn’t really have the looks. Perry is probably in Frank’s camp, but I’ll admit that I never really saw him perform as much as Bing and Frank. Bing was also in movies, but I think that he got there riding his huge popularity in the music industry (if he didn’t have a great voice we would have never seen him on TV).
–Assuming a couple of things; they were already as polished as we knew them to be and they were not famous (they came out of nowhere like the rest of the contestants);
Do you think these guys would have had what it takes?
