  1. nickyfee on July 14, 2010 at 7:26 am

    I’m so sorry for that.. >_> (I’m from Germany..)

  2. algeria love ms on February 18, 2010 at 3:58 am

  4. Gringostarr on February 23, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    That one darker girl is real bad.

    this show looks awful, but look at it this way, they probably dont speak much english. not bad. itd be like an american learning some rammestein overnight.

  6. BlackChester on January 29, 2008 at 6:38 am

    DSDS Or Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar is the german american Idol
    Popstars is a bit like Making the Band if there’s something
    like this in the US
    But I can’t Understand why they have to sing this bad -.-
    Chester’s Way Better X.x

  7. Tanascha on January 28, 2008 at 10:15 am

    It’s worse. Since last week, you can watch “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” in Germany and i’m still waiting that someone is trying to perform a song by LP… but i hope the day will never come.
    The only good information for you about the video, no one of the 4 “singers” has managed to become a part of the band.
    Pro7 (it’s a german TV station) was looking for the “Hottest Live Act” in Germany. The endresult was also horrible. The band is called “Room 2012″……….. and it sucks ๐Ÿ™‚
    Best wishes

  8. LinkinNessa on January 25, 2008 at 11:16 am

    Well,they don’t say anything important…actually nohing about LP. ^^
    But the Jury wasn’t really impressed…Right !
    OMG Mike put that shit out of your page….you bring shame over Germany !!!! xDD
    That was just such a shit…fuckthose guys who had the idea to let them sing THIS song !!

  9. Zogo on January 24, 2008 at 11:54 am

    Hey ho!
    I’m sorry for that Mr.Shinoda^^. I’m German, too, and i was totally shocked when I saw the video on your side. You said, it is like american idol, no, its worse^^, and I don’t know who has chosen thsi song for them, but if you want to what they say in the video, you may write me a message at LPN. Would be fun, but I have no real hope^^
    cu zogo

  10. LinkinNessa on January 24, 2008 at 9:30 am

    Yeah, this is really terrible…I saw it at the TV ^^ Why do you put some shit like that on your page ?? xD But they don’t say anything interesting…I am from Germany..they just talk abou how to sing it. Nothing about LP.
    OMG They’re such a shame for Germany -.-* xD
    Put this out of your page that’s so embarrassingly !!! Oh shit… xD

  11. Sarah_CGN on January 24, 2008 at 3:15 am

    hahahahha – great! poor song, those people really can’t get it right. And don’t worry Mike, you don’t miss much bcs you don’t understand what they are talking. Most of it is only blabberin. Only fun part may be the blonde at the beginning, stating that she is “really happy with my performance” – must be hearing impaired or sth like that oO Popstars really is a lame show. Oh and BTW the “real” copy of American Idol here in Germany is “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (not really better than “Popstars”, just for your information ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    Love, Sarah

  12. Kat on January 23, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    haha… thats pretty awesome that they would cover a song like “what i’ve done” on this type of show and considering they probably dont know english that well i give them credit. but yes i agree, i wish i knew what they were saying too!

  13. psykobouliz on January 23, 2008 at 11:00 am

    WHAT THE F???? THEY are not singers, OMG! no, have you heard the chinese girl? Poor Chester, when he will hear this, he will faint! lol That’ HORRIBLE! Pleaaase, stop this, guyz, go back to school to learn how to sing, let’s mike and chester give you a lesson! oh no, that’ too awful, i didn’t even hear this till the end, my ears were scrotching! ha

  14. zeljka on January 22, 2008 at 8:41 am

    ive just find another singer which has made a cover of "what ive done”. link: http://mina.myvideo.de/
    i really dont know what to think about, its better than the popstars-version. ๐Ÿ˜€ but still just popmusic!

  15. kUmiKo on January 22, 2008 at 7:29 am

    its exactly like american idol………..SANJAYA……..hahaha
    it sucks!!
    but cant stop watching such kida stupid show….LOL

  16. zeljka on January 22, 2008 at 3:22 am

    i hate popstars. and why are they using a song from linkin park ?! the guys should sing something from backstreet boys or some other s***. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    i prefer the original version. and live of course. yesterday cologne was GREAT ! ๐Ÿ˜›

    greetings from the netherlands

  17. Akaree on January 22, 2008 at 1:06 am

    Way to ruin a song. Is that dutch they’re speaking…? bloody hell, I was squirming in my seat watching it. Aki never knew you can take something so good, and turn it into something so horribly embarrassing. x_x

    I blame all this horrid on American Idol. =D

  18. asianotter on January 21, 2008 at 11:57 am

    LOL! WTF? . . . OK, let me just say that Chester Bennington is one of the top 5 vocalists in the known Universe! that being said . . . this was really not good. on one hand it is probably flattering and all, but when they don’t bring it, it’s not pretty to watch. thanks for sharing.

  19. niaminor91 on January 18, 2008 at 8:16 pm

    hahaha, funny video tho XD
    -Nia =P

  20. kellz on January 18, 2008 at 2:03 pm

    omg all this German is like watching TV in Paris all over again… oh and they totally butchered your vocals. hahaha just imagine the singing advisor or whatever saying bravo. we can all go along with it.

  21. Escardos on January 18, 2008 at 1:44 pm

    This is so terrible… ^^

  22. LOLA47 on January 18, 2008 at 1:28 pm


  23. OceanBiscuit on January 18, 2008 at 6:43 am

    wow………….amazing………i’m just speechless…………….

  24. sibu on January 18, 2008 at 4:51 am

    LOL, I remember, posting that video on LPMB a few month ago. It was quite painful to watch then but now it is just damn funny. The choreography is too disturbing LOL…And the comments make it even more fun: “Iยดm quite pleased with my performance” LOL. And Nina Hagen (woman in the jury) looked like she was in pain. LOL

    Did you have fun watching it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. yuuuri on January 17, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    hey…. never thought of it every becoming a pop song…. wow… ppl work in mysterious ways…. lol

  26. illusionist on January 17, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    )) the name of the show should have been changed to “comedystar”. seriously, after watching that clip I really felt like listenning to the original “What I’ve done”

  27. Jo on January 17, 2008 at 9:53 am

    …..for the love of christ, please stop singing people. Do us a favor and don’t sing ever again, plsthx. Even I can do better.
    Chester = win, yes?

  28. ayanami on January 17, 2008 at 9:32 am

    OMG!!!! O.o
    it was so embarassing…they sucked at singing…and the choreography??? XD
    i want to cry and laugh at the same time…
    (here in italy we’ve got a similar programm some years ago…luckly we had only one edition)

  29. So_S on January 17, 2008 at 7:59 am

    wow…they sucked so much!

  30. yohannaaaa on January 17, 2008 at 7:53 am

    that performance was the worst performance i’ve ever heard in my whole life.
    “Popstars”, let Chester sing that song next time.
    Love you and your blog Mike, and LP of course.
    btw, it’s Rob’s birthday soon, Happy bday Rob!

  31. Valentine20 on January 17, 2008 at 7:27 am

    It’s the funniest thing ever))))They have no voice,and they want to sing????It’s wery wierd…..

  32. stardust001 on January 17, 2008 at 5:45 am

    Yeah, sure, right, “Popstars”!
    Learn how to sing!
    They just killed an amazing song! MURDERERS! ^^
    And what’s with the “dance”?!
    Nothing can replace you guys, NOTHING. You-are-awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. Your blog is fantastic! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. ChazyYaz on January 17, 2008 at 5:38 am

    The destruction of a masterpiece! I’m a little bit ashamed for “my” country. Let’s hope they never ever do that again. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And be glad that you don’t understand their talking. Greetings from Germany.

  34. mVi on January 17, 2008 at 4:46 am

    so lame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what were they thinking? they tried hard to sing. but those voices are awful! and that “movements” at the chorus part. geez!

  35. Kaolla_Shiori on January 17, 2008 at 4:38 am

    Oo that was kinda weird… they didnt even get the note right… lawl but i suppose this only proves that linkin park is unique and the great music you guys make is hard to duplicate. ^^

  36. Urban on January 17, 2008 at 3:20 am

    Fake voices.
    Mike and Chester are the best. And much better than this “POPSTARS”.

    ps. And Mike’s “na na na na” is better too.)

  37. Shelby on January 17, 2008 at 1:37 am

    ….and this is how my hearing dies, because of people who “trying to sing” but they don’t “sing”.
    There’s a singer in Poland that sounds similar. When my dad heard people from your movie he told me to send this to you know that there are worse singers and they even earn a lot of money on this “trying to sing”. Don’t understand me wrong , I dont want you to loose your hearing but it’s just funny

  38. ShadowerLiltani on January 17, 2008 at 12:15 am

    The girl didn’t have that bad of a voice, enough practice and she could be really good.

    LP songs are very hard to sing, your voice has to resemble Chester in order to sing close to what the song requires. I think people gotta be able to rap/sing like you to.

    By the way, I can’t sleep so my mother gave me some alcohol mixed with some creamer… Tastes like cough syrup. I am of legal age by the way. I just think someone like me drinking alcohol is rather funny, since I have a pure hatred and dislike for the drink.

  39. theOuiSkey on January 16, 2008 at 11:12 pm

    omg..is this the reality? really reality?….somebody…please….kill me !!!

  40. shinoda_me on January 16, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    Mike? Mike??? Are You There?? Are You Alive???????????????????????
    (screams) M-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-K-E !!!!!!!!!
    oh there u are…
    You Are Alive! Ahhhh… Thank Heavens.
    that proves it …
    how else could anyone explain ur existence after seeing/hearing this shit?
    dont ‘popstars’ like the existence of my beloved Linkin Park ?
    HUH?????? live and let live !
    man … that lady at 3:17 proves it … haha!

  41. analoggirl on January 16, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    That was priceless! You guys should incorporate the choreography into your live shows. I’ll give you until February 23rd (London, ON) to get the moves down. :p

    Btw, are you a Randy, Paula or Simon?

  42. Helios_LP on January 16, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    OMG !!!!!!! My ears !!!!! I can’t hear anymore

  43. Lnknprkfrk on January 16, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    well, im not gonna say that was horrible because they tried their best and it takes some guts to sing in front of ppl. btw, that was in Germany.

  44. xLinkinParkFanx on January 16, 2008 at 2:14 pm

    well, that wasnt too good. but hey, at least the had the courage to go up there and do it. I know i couldn’t :] i’m to shy. what the hell was up with the dancing? haha. well, have a good one.

  45. firefighter465ph on January 16, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    the performance was cool but…i don’t know…it’s like “rojo” a chilean tv show for ABC1 people XD
    i don’t like their voices…


  46. Janni_LP on January 16, 2008 at 1:11 pm

    oh my.. :s I’ve got goosebumps! And not in a good way..!

  47. jennvink on January 16, 2008 at 12:52 pm

    They definatly need Chester’s POPERSTOPER on their mics! OMG! Pretty Hilarious!! Can’t wait till you come to London, Ontario, CANADA in Feb!!!! Hope you have time to update this with tour pics and videos! Goodluck with the tour starting!!

  48. Jeana on January 16, 2008 at 10:42 am

    Hehe… hehehe… sigh Oh. My. God… It is really pathetic, that they think they were sooo good XD
    I hate this show…

  49. Y_ on January 16, 2008 at 9:09 am

    lol…about their performance…well…good try. if they wanna sing (and dance) what i’ve done, they’d better use the remixed version. i miss ur keyboad (and voice), ches’s voice, brad’s guitar, rob’s drum, phoenix’s base, and joe’s scratch ๐Ÿ˜‰

    hey ffmuteki9, i was just thinking the same thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  50. Julie7 on January 16, 2008 at 8:17 am

    Aรe!! Really bad perfomance!!

    the dance is ridiculous… but i’d like to see you and chester dancing like this during a show; that would be fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    i’m happy to see u guys back in France!! we love you<3

  51. ffmuteki9 on January 16, 2008 at 8:14 am

    As soon as I saw their gestures, move at 2:14 and 2: 54, it reminded me a same gesture, or a feature of a Japanese comedian called Yoshio Kojima.

    http://0rz.tw/493zE โ†at 0:31 almost the same lol
    I hope everyone sees my comment culd take a look, it’s really almost the same, so I burst into laugh right away as I saw this…

    That Japanese comedian is now very famous, hit. and what he says with that kind of gesture is ” I dont care at all!!”
    this is his most famous characteristic.

    If you see some Japanese variey, you may know him.

  52. lp_stef on January 16, 2008 at 7:57 am

    DAMN!!! WHAT THE FUCK??? didn’t they know that nobody can cover an LP song?? they SUCK!!!! i new that this tv show is crab but that they sing lp songs..?? i can’t believe this

  53. DennyTheSuchysh on January 16, 2008 at 7:48 am

    jeah a saw that, but i thing original is better ๐Ÿ˜›

  54. linkinparc on January 16, 2008 at 7:41 am

    lol I’m from germany but I haven’t seen that

  55. Meteora20 on January 16, 2008 at 6:40 am

  60. oleander on January 16, 2008 at 5:57 am

    omg…they sing what i’ve done in BACKSTREET BOYS way…can’t take it,totally…

    oh, right,they are pop stars-,-

  61. Mikado on January 16, 2008 at 4:47 am

    Hi Mike! Itยดs nothing important to understand with the german popstars. They only was talking about that they like it to be in the popstars -“band” and that it is a lot of fun for them to perform the song together on stage.
    The producer try to coach them how to sing “What Iยดve done”. (although Iยดm not sure if he knows what he was done there)
    And the other clips, 2 – 15, …OMG, incredible
    PS: I hope to get the chance to see you and the other lp-members next monday (01/21) in cologne.

  62. who_cares on January 16, 2008 at 3:07 am

    lol pop version of what i’ve done… totally baaaaad. they ruined the whole song.

  63. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 16, 2008 at 2:44 am

    ouh, before than I forget, this is a version from American Idol! Here in Brazil we have this competion called Popstars.

  64. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 16, 2008 at 2:42 am

    cool, Mike! You would be flattered about that! It’s awesome! Imagine! Your song been singed for a lot of people around the world! Sorry, I forgot! You already know what is that1 I that don’t know what is!!!! I have to confess that I’m a little jealous about you!! Hahahahahahahahaha! This was a great homenage to all you from LP. I’m so happy about you!!!! Sorry for the kinding, ok? I was kindin!!!!! Love you, Mikey!

  65. marusyan on January 16, 2008 at 2:23 am

    you heard the song after this lame what Iโ€™ve done version?
    “shut up don’t wanna hear your woice! shut up”
    hahaha the song was just in time for those awesome guys

    btw hi from RUSSIA
    hope to see LP in London. god help me with visa

  66. Amazing on January 16, 2008 at 2:16 am

    interesting))) but Chaz sing better. I agree with svetok we waiting for you in russia this year!!!

  67. ernieball003 on January 16, 2008 at 2:13 am

    My god.. I wanted to shove a sharped pencil into my ears to pierce my eardrums during the bridge..

  68. kr1sty on January 16, 2008 at 2:09 am

    OMFG!!!! That is sooooo bad! Nearly had to turn it off part way through. Guess u know u’ve really hit the big time when u’r songs get killed like that!! ha ha ha still laughin’. Thanks Mike XXX

  69. Reanimated89 on January 16, 2008 at 2:04 am

    OMG… we had something like that here in Italy, some years ago…but, fortunately, they never covered LP songs!!! :)))

  70. svetok on January 16, 2008 at 2:01 am

    well i guess tougether they sound not bad…but single…theyll never be as good as chaz))))
    ur already on tour? maybe after us ull have an oppotunity to come to russia? pleeeease….thousands of people r waiting for u here)))) have good time on stage!!! love ya!!!

  71. keineAhnung on January 16, 2008 at 1:26 am

    WHAT THE…????..I knew that they used breaking the habit some years ago in that show (which was aweful, because they had to dance too and were looking like a f-cking boyband)…but what I’ve done?
    I thought of making some subtitles, but I’m writing an exam tomorrow so I don’t have time to do that. Buuut…I translated it (YES my english sucks because I didn’t know how to translate some of the phrases)
    so here it is:

    Inga: I like working in a group, I can help others and Iโ€™m very happy.
    Fabrizio: Itโ€™s professional that thereโ€™s somebody who tells you how to do it and itโ€™s different from trying it on your own but if some professional tells you how to do it you can try.

  72. keineAhnung on January 16, 2008 at 1:24 am

    Dieter: Michele still has a lot of problems, but itโ€™s more a problem in his mind than a problem with his vocal cords. Somehow heโ€™s still unconfident, but after I tried and told him โ€œLive itโ€ he suddenly managed it….(Michele sings)…donโ€™t tell me anymore you canโ€™t sing that high.
    Michele: Well, I think it will be okay.

    Dieter: Thx for your performance come here and welcome your families.
    Michele: I still made one or two mistakes, but it was an awesome feeling Iโ€™d like to be up there again Itโ€™s so great being on stage and with that audience itโ€™s amazing

  73. keineAhnung on January 16, 2008 at 1:23 am

    Mai-Wing: Itโ€™s great that so many of my friends and my family have come Weโ€™ve been the opening act and tried to rock and I hope we managed it
    Fabrizio: It was great. For me, it was just what I wanted and thatโ€™s it.
    Inga: Great song great performance everything was perfect. Iโ€™m so happy and my mom is with me and Iโ€™m very happy about it.

    btw…good luck in hannover today…wanted to come but they changed the date of that exam so I had to sell my ticket (and the tickets for my flight from vienna to hannover …w-nker!! @prof)

  74. Sei_Ryoku16 on January 16, 2008 at 12:30 am

    Hey Mike. I’ve saw this on German TV last year. I’ve laughed so much and I have think ‘What would LP think about this’ And now you’ve saw this. lol
    You must learn more german Mike XDD Then you could understand it ;)) No just kidding. ^^

    Are u in germany right now? oO If yes try to eat Dรถner! It’s delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ See u today in Hannover. I haven’t got a m&g but my best friend has one. And she will give u a letter from me. They’re just a few lines in this letter but I hope u understand my english XD See u bye bye =)

  75. Susi on January 16, 2008 at 12:30 am

    lol…sounds like german to me xD i don’t watch these stupid shows and now i know why!although it’s cool that they chose a lp-song but they messed it up!

  76. linkinparkfansid on January 15, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    it’s so sick, i mean the way they’ve messed up the song!

  77. Emilia on January 15, 2008 at 10:49 pm

  85. Jess on January 15, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    Well kudos for your friend for sending it to you! Personally I liked the first guy’s voice the best. The girls’ were a bit off, but the chorus parts were okay. haha

    tonight i will have nightmare after seeing this video.. w/ the “backstreets linkin park” or “linkin’sync” lol

  87. Ezza on January 15, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    apt title on youtube… the bands that came from the 2 seasons that aus had to put upwith that show were way better (now its both American and aus idol that we put up with >_<) …..definitely worse than eurovision… i seriously hope that no one covers that song or any others of lp unless they can actually sing the song and not have to fish around for the melody line….this is just one of the many reasons i hate…no loathe reality tv it just sucks out loud big time!!!!

  88. leslieintaipei on January 15, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    wow…that’s so cool…can’t stop laughing . hahaha!

  89. akitagirl on January 15, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    WOW! Ahh how long before you stopped laughing? OMG!! You guys have nothing to worry about !!!!!! Hopefully that is not the future of music.

  90. qwertyuiop on January 15, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    omygoodness !

  91. aaashley on January 15, 2008 at 6:40 pm

    that was pretty intense. : P

  92. Ashley on January 15, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    Hahaha that was great.
    They actually sound about the same as some of the finalists in American Idol,
    and English isn’t even their native tongue.

  93. asiatik16 on January 15, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    I luv ur blog mike !!! its good but nothing replace chester voice or mike voice !:D and what ive done is a very nice video !!! good job

  94. REP_t on January 15, 2008 at 5:26 pm

    Sorry guys, but it sucks. When the video came to an end I had to listen the original “What Iยดve done” so as to take out of my the bad taste. Hahaha. Iยดm not angry anymore. Although I would like you to read the comments and come to Latin America, someday. At least, thanks for the time you dedicate to us writing something. Peace.
    (Enjoy this because tomorrow I am going to be angry again)

  95. JazzyJaz on January 15, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    i love ur blog mike,you post the best stuff โค ๐Ÿ™‚
    but god that was bad, x__x
    there's only one LP…..only one…. i never wanna see anyone cover that song ever

  96. Anstice on January 15, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    roars with laughter Ahh cripe. Those poor people. Why doesn’t anyone tell them that they suck at doing covers of other peoples’ songs? No one can beat the originial ๐Ÿ˜‰

  97. Celestial on January 15, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    That singing was beyond awful. Leave it up to the pros, please. Also, one of the judges looked like she was giving them the stank eye for a few seconds there and she even covered her ears. Hehehe!

  98. ColorScheming on January 15, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    Thats cool. I bet its an honor to have your song not only sang on a show but in a different country for a singing competition. I Thats sweet though. but still i agree no one can do it as good as the original.

  99. nillp on January 15, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    dear lord.. the door of hell was opened.. :O

    i don’t know what is worse, the dreadful choreography or their azucrinante voices.. x_x’

    this just proves [once again] that LP is unic.. nobody comes close to u.. ๐Ÿ˜€


    no one. (:

  100. tristine_lpugurl25 on January 15, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    Wow O_O

  101. mrsshinoda on January 15, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    Hey mikey
    really nice this, they’re good but nothing replace LP
    and yours ” Na na na” at the end of this amazing song lol

    But i would like to know what you thought of their perfomances, i’m challenging you to be a judge hahaha

    Let’s see what shinoda thinks


  102. karolp on January 15, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    o.O god… what is this ? ooo myyy goddd , man because this I thinks LP the best, have not comparison. lp with some german, that insult…

  103. TaylorKenjiLP on January 15, 2008 at 4:08 pm

    dood!! haha i am highly amused. who cares if they sucked? at least they chose a good song =P

    mikey you should get the translations and post them.

  104. Jaclyn on January 15, 2008 at 3:39 pm

    Aaaaa that’s damn funny ))))Thanks for posting it. U’ve written a real pop song hehe )))) Enjoy ur fame ๐Ÿ˜€ There’s one more evidence that you guys are gods! And don’t let Chester die laughing )))) we need him alive and rocking
    Good luck for ur European shows ๐Ÿ˜‰

  105. hit_n_run_me on January 15, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    wow and I thought eurovision was bad, this is in a league of its own.

  106. minuteforce on January 15, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    LPA reported that a while ago, it was pretty unpleasant to watch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. sandra on January 15, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    well, mike… i really feel sorry for you having to watch such a crap…
    sadly, that’s the “qualtity program” we get to see on German TV most of the time… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    but you probably will be relieved to hear that non of these guys made it into the final band they where searching… ๐Ÿ˜€
    but in case you’re curious and brave enough, this is the latest ‘new German pop sensation’ (at least that’s what they believe they are ;)): http://www.room2012.de/
    as for the things the people are saying in the video… it’s definitely not worth wasting a single sec on a translation for this…

    have a good and save trip to germany!
    i’m counting the days ’til the cologne show! ๐Ÿ™‚
    see ya there!

  108. DaniShinoda on January 15, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    Hahahahaha! Oh Gpsh, it’s SO MUCH funny… I’m dying now, I’m laughing so much..
    I wish I could understand this too, but I don’t know what’s language.
    It’s not Spanish or portuguese–official language in Brazil. I think it’s French or German!

    This performance is the worst cover of Linkin Park I’ve ever seen, they destroied What I’ve Done…
    Hey Mike, Chester have to see this! hahahaha…
    Good travels in Europe! I miss you here!


  109. supremeo2 on January 15, 2008 at 3:04 pm

    woah that’s some crazy shit! lol and gotta agree with Sharp_Swimmer, no one can do it like you guys lol!

  110. Crystal122208 on January 15, 2008 at 3:02 pm

    woah that 4th girl had a deep voice

  111. Worldinmy_Eyes on January 15, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    Best. Choreography. EVER. You all should be very proud of yourselves. ๐Ÿ˜€

  112. mary_ziv on January 15, 2008 at 2:45 pm

    first: oh god mike you got better things to do than watching them guys performing a good song like shit. haha

    want the whole translation? it’s not worth it xD never mind them guys, they even cant talk german probable so .

    oh yeah right, looking forward to see you guys in Frankfurt xD haha travelling 250 km for you. i expect a better show than these guys made it!

    ps: do me a favor, dont watch such things nymore ๐Ÿ˜‰

  113. durg on January 15, 2008 at 2:38 pm

    oh my this is funny haha

  114. Sharp_Swimmer on January 15, 2008 at 2:31 pm

    Credit to them for trying, but there’s no denying that this really made me appreciate you guys and your talent even more! Seriously, no-one can play that song the way you guys can, no-one can sing like Chester and no-one can “nanana” like you, Mike! Ok, that was cheesy… But I do mean it!

  115. Snails on January 15, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    I think Chesters place in the band is safe for now ๐Ÿ™‚
    laura x

  116. KellyKasulis on January 15, 2008 at 2:26 pm

    It sounds Spanish. I’m not sure, though. No one quote me on this.

    And btw, it was a very [interesting] performance. :3

  117. MissDee on January 15, 2008 at 2:24 pm

    In the beginning they are saying that they like to work in a group, one of them is happy to work with professional and thid old guy says that they have problems with sound. After their performance first guy says that he was having fantastic feelingand that he can go on the stage again to show what he can and this second guy says that this performance was exactly this what he wanted to do and it was perfect. The rest: “I’m happy cause my friends are here”… (not important). Their choreography OMG :/

  118. Xefuzion on January 15, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    next time, record yourself when you watch such a video.

  119. Fanlinkinpark02 on January 15, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    OMG XD haha

    in France, in a reality show, a boy and a girl sang Numb/Encore and the guy sang a french rap


    Enjoy! ^^

    Bye Mike see you in 7 days, I can’t wait =D

  120. merve on January 15, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    hey mike,you should give these guys due…they tried…did you see their faces on the beginning??((omg,that look was hilarious!!:D ๐Ÿ˜€ ))they really feel the music…and dance’s harmony with the lyrics was dope!! just kidding!!…you should pride of this guys!!(!)
    like i said,they tried..((iam sure even they never listened the original what i!ve done’))
    there is a show like this in here,Turkey too…our young ‘talented’ ppl want to be famous..but they looks like robots((set to brainless))that came from the same machine…anyways this make me laugh,mike tnx for posting,bys

  121. Doggie24690 on January 15, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    Oh geez. O_O I think the guy in the beginning of the video had a wonderful voice. Not to itch Chester’s ego or anything but it really couldn’t compare to his though. It’s interesting how people around the world take our culture (music in this case) and use it for things like this. It’s pretty amazing. I guess that’s the effects of “soft power” for the US. ๐Ÿ˜€

  122. ShireRock on January 15, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    I bow my head in shame…. xD OMG, that’s not how you guys should be welcomed here in Germany….no, not like that.
    Anyway…can’t wait for you to come here and play!!

    Greetz, ShireRock

  123. becksgiggs on January 15, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    This is funny. I was laughing through the whole video. Signing what I’ve done in pop music way and dance at the same time. The dance is really funny. Ha! Ha! Chester should watch this video, too.

  124. drummer on January 15, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    OMFG… What was that?! It was terrible ๐Ÿ˜€

  125. Lvix on January 15, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    thanks god LP wrote the song and not this guys… :p
    the blond girl was good

  126. CHEN_IL on January 15, 2008 at 1:44 pm

    you should fire chester and bring the blond girl to sing instead!!!!!
    hahahaXD k–i–d–d–i–n–g!!!!!!!!! P: P: love you chester<3
    you are totaly the best:]
    they're lame ๐Ÿ˜

  127. crooklynn on January 15, 2008 at 1:34 pm

    Hello Mr Shinoda… yeah, WELCOME IN GERMANY!!! I feel a bit embarrassed! hahahahaha

  128. Sabie on January 15, 2008 at 1:32 pm

    Oh… my… god!!! What was that??? It was horrible!!! And what is rock song doing in a popstar competition? I would be ashamed!!!! Thats why i always say: no matter how great your voice is (well, their voices wasnt good at all in the video) dont even try to sing Linkin Park, because itll be like on this video!!!

  129. elta15 on January 15, 2008 at 1:27 pm

    HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! o_O wtf!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i’m german… i don’t watch programms like this because they are REALLY SHIT!!!!!!!!! i can’t explain how stupid and poor this is xD what a LOLLLL….
    AND the manager – THAT is something lol…. xD xD
    p.s. i and some friends started a anti-pop company last month… xD

  130. Mickey on January 15, 2008 at 1:24 pm

    Hahaha, that’s hilarious. And you’re right…it’s like American Idol and we’ve had Popstars here in Denmark, as well. It’s horrible. Seriously, not even the one who wins, is talented. Actually, the only one I heart from American Idol…is Chris Daughtry. He’s got a voice that, for me, is right up there next to Chester’s, even though it’s very different than Chester’s. Now, maybe Chris could’ve pulled off What I’ve Done. He sang ‘Mystery’ with Live and it was gorgeous. You should go look for it on YouTube. Or just buy Daughtry’s album…uh, called Daughtry.

  131. soyuneik on January 15, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    lol I bet you were jumpin out of your seat for that one. hahaha.

  132. twix on January 15, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    I’ve actually heard of the show Popstar even though I live in the States. Have some European friends that talks about it. LOL.

    What a bad performance from them though. I wonder why they picked “What I’ve Done”?? And why all the dancing? That’s horrible. Haha. The guys were so bad they made the female bandmates sound so good!! LOL!

  133. Twoflower on January 15, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    That was horrible… Really… I couldn’t watch whole vid! xD All around the world there are some stupid programs like that xD. God bless no more singing “What I’ve done”….

  134. ErbseLP on January 15, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    head -> table… o.O
    i hate this show… popstars is wors than germany search the superstar. xD

  135. Crazy_Grenlin on January 15, 2008 at 12:46 pm

    hi Mike. u have a “nice” friend… i think its realy funny) but popmusic is devil)))

  136. Siby on January 15, 2008 at 12:43 pm

    eh. im just thinking. now everyone see that clip and everyone will think that germans are that stupid. and that we dont have great musicians.
    well listen to bands like: Beatsteaks or Die Aerzte.
    check their myspace sites out or youtube

  137. BlackEagle2006 on January 15, 2008 at 12:40 pm

    hay mike, Iยดm from Germany too and I saw the performance (the only one i saw “Popstars”), and I had to say it was bad. They canยดt sing the song and there is only one guitar in the “band” and bad singer and thats why it sounds so bad (and the only guitar that played…played tooooooo deep xD) and well I think all that who sing What Iยดve Done are not in the new band i think the band called “Room2012” the best thing is the one guy at the end of the clip he said “There are only one or three mistakes” and i had to say it was a big mistake ๐Ÿ˜€ not only two or three, they canยดt sing the song xD and the blond girl at the end said “It was perfect” well I think no xD Greetings from Germany

  138. AshleyDawn on January 15, 2008 at 12:40 pm

    Hm, interesting choice of song for that kind of show. I would never have the guts to sing a song on TV (or infront of anyone for that matter) that was in anything but my first language. Kudos to them for trying, hopefully they don’t try again anytime soon.

  139. Siby on January 15, 2008 at 12:37 pm

    dude…..im german and i know that show. honestly you dont want to know what they say…
    but personally chester should watch that video and so he can get tips from them. i mean that can improve his performance. i hope he will do it. he should dance like those singers too.

  140. Ann on January 15, 2008 at 12:21 pm

    oh my god!!!! aha this video is funny, you could dance like that in your shows! hahahaha
    i dont like the way they sing, they were killing me, i couldnt even finish watching the video…

    have a nice day! and come to spain soon!!!

  141. MelMinerva on January 15, 2008 at 12:20 pm

    Tanne! I cannot believe that we are friends! You just have bad thoughts XD but honestly….why not? ๐Ÿ˜€ Mike go and dance tomorrow…no one will love or film it ๐Ÿ˜€


  142. alyeska39 on January 15, 2008 at 12:20 pm

    as a music major, I must say, that sucked…bad. I could barely stand to watch all the way to the end. please never subject to me anything so painful ever again. gah! … I’m gonna go listen to somebody who can sing now.

  143. Tannebaum on January 15, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    this would be even great stuff for tomorrow’s show in hanover ๐Ÿ™‚

    just try it – we are not going to laugh – i swear (maybe… ) xD

  144. DrSAS on January 15, 2008 at 12:13 pm

    mouahahaha !! Je crois que je vais.. boire pour oublier ๐Ÿ˜€
    Bonne chance Mike pour la nouvelle tournรฉe en Europe !! J’y serais moi, a bercy.. Je t’attends !!!
    ( Sorry for my language, my english is too bad.. also, i speak french here sorry :S )

  145. MelMinerva on January 15, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    yeah should dance w/ chaz….”whaaaaat I’ve doooooooooooooone”…..swinging around the floor ๐Ÿ˜€ Would be good stuff for LPTV ๐Ÿ˜‰ rofl

  146. Tannebaum on January 15, 2008 at 12:04 pm


    i wish u would make such a great and lovely dance performance on stage while playing “what i’ve done”
    (just joking, this video is crap …)

  147. MelMinerva on January 15, 2008 at 11:54 am

    mike XDD this video is hilarious. I’m german so I understand what they’re talking about (sing higher, getting the tone…”I want to be a popstar” blabla – nothing special). This video is maybe 3 months old. And it was the discuss-theme in germany…how bad the performance was….I hope you agree xD I remember how a radio-host said: “If Mike Shinoda hears it, his ears will bleed” – so tell me…how much blood did you lose? XD I think it’s totally funny your friend sended you this amazing video XD

    *ah forgot to say: The real “Copy” of American Idol is “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (=Germany search the superstar). Popstars is as far as I know a little copy of it^^

    See ya tomorrow!

  148. Maksu on January 15, 2008 at 11:51 am

    Hey Mike, got the first comment ๐Ÿ˜€ Nice video, but they are not singing better then you guys cauze you guys Rock. LP Rocks and Fort Minor Rocks. Hope that one day you guys will come visit Estonia and make a concert around here.
