Gucci: I'm so excited to be here. It's hard to believe that I can see the Twins face to face, and get their signatures. Maybe I will get the chance to have a photograph with them…
May: Calm down, sweety. It's a long queue, and also their signatures are not free. You get them only after you buy their new released CD.
Gucci: Come on, May. It's the time of my life. It's a wonderful thing that they issued their album here with this signature court.
May: You are such a big fan of them. Well, do you know when they started to sing?
Gucci: Sure. Two years ago, they took part in a singing contest, and won the first place. After that, their fans appeared in a rush.
May: What about their singing standard?
Gucci: You've got to the point. They have very sweet voices.
May: Can they do high notes?
Gucci: I think so. But they don't rely on hitting high notes to attract you. The point is their songs can always touch your soul, making you feel pure.
May: Sounds good. Hey, the poster on the wall says that they are going to hold a concert next Friday. Will you be there?
Gucci: Yeah. I've got two tickets. Would you like to join me?
May: I'd love to. But I heard that many pop stars do lip-synch these days. Do you think it's possible they would do this?
Gucci: They won't do that. As far as I am concerned, they are strongly against it.
May: Cool. What about you? Do you think lip-synch should be dealt with seriously?
Gucci: Absolutely! What the audience wants to hear is their real voice. That's what a live show is all about . We don't like the engineered gloss made in a recording studio.
May: I agree with you on that. Much better to sound off sometimes than to lip-synch.
Gucci: Exactly. Well, let's be quiet. Our turn is coming soon.
Gucci: I'm a big fan of the Twins. Today I went to their signature court. There was a long queue, so it took a little bit of time to get their signatures. But still it was wonderful. I love their songs. They have very sweet voices. They can do high notes, but they don't rely on that to attract you. They are going to hold a concert next Friday. I can't wait to see them again.
