What i don't understand about some people is why judge????????? I"m 16 but i grew up in the church and the bible tells me not to judge and thats what i try not to do...... you may say he is just a little kid,but you know what why hate on people when you don't know there story. If you think you can do it better than some of the contestants on the stage why didn't you do it.... I just wish that people (music Artists) could look past the big towns and come to smaller towns..... why not come to a town like jacksonville and find youg artists....... we would just die to be on television letting other people know that God can use young adults like us....... This is a suggestion.........

My Bible tells me to judge ye not. Also, he who is without sin cast the first stone. The thing is the older people or the management should advise, but not ridicule.

Again I say we should not judge people. We should guide and advise.

Christians---Judge not that ye be not judged!!! This is a great idea having a gospel show of any caliber. Having any body, and the fact that young people are trying to be on and participate in this show is awesome. We so called Christians that are always talking and judging are the reason people run from the church in the first place. Susan, from PA, I am praying for you right now!!!!
What in the world are you talking about? Were you asleep and then were awakened in the middle of a topic or something?

I Love watching the show. It inspires me to keep going for my dream to one day record music for the Lord. I have been singing since I was a little girl. How awesome it is to use your talents for God's glory.

I didn't get to watch the show. Is it diverse? Are there a lot of people from all over like on American Idol?

I think Sunday's Best is a big joke. It's not for real..not for real. Well, okay, the winner wins a car, but what does that do for the persons who really thinks they are going to have a career or ministry in music? What does BET do to promote the winner named Sunday's Best? What did the show...(yes show) do for Aiken and Addison? Have you heard much from them? I think NOT! Yeah, they got a CD out of deal, but millions of folks got CDS. Contracts come a dime a don't be deceived by the fact that the show says winner will get a contact. That could mean everything or could very well mean nothing at all. How much money does BET put towards maketing the artist/winner? The truth is this; the SHOW is good advertisement for Kirk Franklin, Tina and Erica and BeBe Winans. It's good entertainment-True that. But entertainment (places attention on the performer) and worship (draws ones attention to God) does not mix. The SHOW is a copy cat to American Idol and it would not suprise me if Fox isn't getting a cut off of any proceeds.

If the singers on this show can touch the soul of just one person in the world...then it is worth it to me. I was raised in the church but watching Sherri Addison and Crystal Aiken and the rest last season really did something for my walk with Christ. Watching it this season is just as good so far. Its saddening to see that church people are ridiculing this show. I belive some of these singers are annointed and nothing wrong with turning on the T.V and hearing them minister via song.

The ladies all sing so beautiful, they are wonderful to listen to so refreshing..... their natural abilities were very nicely done.. I commend all of them in the name of Jesus..but, what I want to know where did one of them get that Silver satin look suit she was performing in..that is sooo gorgeous.. I would love to find one for myself that... thanks if you can get the info..

I don't think the new judges are fair in picking a good singer. They have been giving praise to the wrong singers. The one's that are inspirational in there singing are getting the let down, whereas the one's that are not performing well is getting all of the praise. Is there some kind of conspiracy going on here?

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!!!!
I only saw the show a couple of times it a bunch of excuse the expression, garbage to me. All the people hosting the show as well as the judges sorry to say but they are gospel and so called christian sell-outs. And Mary Mary aint representing Christ, they are representing the world and promoting themselves as is alot of these so called gospel artist.

I think Tina& Mary Are not good example to Judge to me on a scale one to ten they are by no mean in a position to say who sunday best I long as they stay on Judge I will never watch it again Donnie he is another story he is not (special) yes he is it used to be fun but when I look an see them laugh at people it dont make me feel good about sunday best are saturday best. Mary Mary your name should be beaver an butthead. I will not buy another song you all want us to support your music an you both are Fat. I`m being ugly but you (3) make me sick.
