gospel best has a good idea,but maybe they need saved people to head the competition.
Kenya looks and acts like she is high! what kind of representation is that for church? She was put in the spot the light skinned young man should have been in. That was truly wrong!
Then, a comment was made by the Mary Mary group that one contestant did not have to look like she did...she could be cute too. God told us to cover ourselves...they (Mary Mary) wear many unappropriate clothing which do not represent Christ. Actually, they look like Jezebel!
New Judges Please!!!!

WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE FAIL TO REALIZE IS THAT GOD LOOKS AT THE HEART AND WHO SAYS THAT LOOKING A CERTAIN WAY WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD. MY GOD SAYS TO COME AS YOU ARE AND HE'LL DO THE REST. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE ORDINARY TO WIN SOULS TO CHRIST. IF THAT IS NOT THE MAIN PURPOSE IN YOUR LIFE TO DO, EVERTHING WOULD BE DONE IN VAIN. THE BIBLE ALSO TALKS ABOUT NOT TO JUDGE NOBODY. I THINK THAT KENYA IS A CHRISTIAN THAT TURNED CARDNAL AN THIS COMPETITION MIGHT BE EXACTLY WHAT SHE NEEDS TO GET BACK ON TRACK. YOU MIGHT NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELF MS.SUSAN.OR DON'T BE A HATER! PRAY FOR KENYA TO BECOME WHAT GOD DESIGNING HER TO BE FOR HIS {GOD'S} GLORY

this show is FAKE! it is a rip off of american idol bet copies other programming instead of bringing something new to the table. they kept the girl that couldn't sing in the competition, just like Sanjaya was kept of american idol for so long. they need to be more original... i like bet, but bet can do better.

it does not matter the replication of the show. there is a difference these people are singing to and for the lord and want others to experience and feel the lord working through them. i say sing on keep on doing whats good dont let haters hate they probably wish they had the voices or courage to sing in front of thousand.BET has been original since they started.

the people are singing for the lord, but the show itself was created not for the same reason. the show is purposefully choosing some people who can't sing to exploit them though not in the same manner as american idol, and not all the people who can sing get through. is is not about the replication of the show but it revolves around the fact that sunday best is in no way different from the secular programming like american idol.

i am in no way saying that the contestants are not in the right place, but the show itself is unoriginal and secular.

The show is alright. I just feel as though there is not enough good talent on there. The judges should have pick better talent to compete.

As a North American I was wondering if this competition is open to only U.S. residents. If so I would respectfully suggest that the pool of contestants be broadened. This would give the show international appeal and give everyone who supports the show by watching it, a chance to participate.

Personally I think Its about time they came up with a show with real music, I think the singers are great the ones they cut should be cut I think Jermain is a doll, his voice is absolutly amazing and I hope he wins hes confident and knows he can sing, all the haters of this show can own up the judges are some of my favorite artist I listen to their cds as I drive, peoeple who love God should love this show I have nothing at all bad to say I wish that they could sing longer, and I wish It did not come on, on a church night but I have been touched by Sharie and Jermain also the young lady with the dread locks, I did enjoy Keisha but she was letting the hood get in the way of her talent, which took away from her realness I liked watching her, I think Jermaine and Sharie will top it off, they should have a record already I also felt something when the young lady sang, Alerbaster Box, CECE beter watch out, I love the judges attitude, and I want that Bob, Erica has!! Im loving it and Kirk is adorable!! I try to get my husband to watch it so singers need to step it up we want to see a competition!!1

I truly enjoy this program. It's so up lifting. Sherri Addison is the Bomb! I hope some one grab her up and get her into a recording studio(fast)! I also love Tasha and Jermaine! BET keep up the good work, you never know who you're reaching with Gospel praises in song!! Good Job! When is the next audition and where?

To God be all The Glory! Father God may You be lifted up and glorified through this program. May you be exalted and may the contestants use their God given gifts and talents to sing for an audience of one. Father may all the viewers who have something to say first start with the man in the mirror. I pray for them where they are, by your spirit Father God may you reach deep inside them and make yourself known.

It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ,... he had his eyes on us, he had designs on us for glorius living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.- Ephesians 1:11

I love this show. I stumbled upon the show because the TV was already on BET, when Sundays Best came on. I truly feel that media has such an impact on America. If there were a top 10 video count down everyday (such as 106th & park)for gospel music more people would appreciate the spirit of religion. I was not brought up in the church,but I have always been a spiritual person. My personal favorites are Cystal Aiken and Emily Gomez, and of course Sherri Addison is amazing.

God Bless
