Bizarre

What is with the weird karaoke scenes in Veronica Mars this season? Wednesday's episode had that weird bit with the guy singing "Veronica" and earlier this season there was that weird sequence where a different guy got up and did "Love Hurts" and the camera held on him as he did the entire first minute or so of the song and what the hell? Does anyone else remember that scene? And both scenes had a bit where a girl in the audience joyously watches the guy singing while her boyfriend or whatever looks jealous. Are these guys friends of Rob Thomas? Did they win a contest? What the hell?

The singer of "Love Hurts" was Courtney Taylor-Taylor of The Dandy Warhols.

This week's guy, I am thus guessing, was the lead singer of Spoon, who have also been used prominently.

I don't know what the deal is behind that, and I'm not saying that it's at all a good choice. I mean, at all.

For the show on a narrative level, I mean. The guys sing pretty good.

I'm just glad there's an explanation beyond "The writers just like weird karaoke asides!"
