Singing toddlers

The Little Goat is very talented at mimicking what she sees. Musically, she has learned a lot of lyrics to some of her favorite music, lately having learned most of the words to 'Once Upon a Dream' from Sleeping Beauty. Lots of people have put videos of their children singing online and a couple caught my eye lately:

Grindcore baby is really talented: he has obviously internalized a style of music and is improvising appropriately. On the other hand, this country baby has seen too much tv. It's a fine testament to how well toddlers can imitate but the implications are disturbing: he's been in front of the TV to see the music video a lot of times. Unless his parents have an acting career planned for him, that's poor parenting; ok, especially if his parents have an acting career planned for him.
