Say what you will about Liberace, he was a talented musician with a flair for showmanship. I think the category listings of Eccentric, Television and Music really only apply here.

I agree with KDP in OK, the following are not needed or true: Bohemians, Beatniks, Hippies and Slackers, Ineptness, Crudity, Talentlessness, Kitsch, and Bad Art,

Liberace was the showman's showman.

how can you apply this classification to a showman like Liberace, when you have the illustrious Madonna and equally non-talented Lady Gaga to compare

Then again, who is the better artist: someone who has little talent but makes the best of it, or someone who has masses of talent and only uses it to play the buffoon? Liberace tried to be a cross between Victor Borge and Elton John, and he ended up as a cross between a saloon pianist and a flamingo. Talentness may not be strictly applicable, but Kitsch and Crudity? Come on, of course they are! As for Bohemians... well, just look at him.

If they could only remove the kitch accompaniment and leave only the piano, it would be better, especially "Let the Sunshine In". It fell like a cheesy cream sauce over garlic lobster; it's heavy, useless and makes the whole thing bland.
