Zachary's only distinction is his age. His sequences could be more passionately produced by a drum machine. And yet, being the youngest of all, just about all is forgiven — including his having dropped a stick at the Grammys. They could put a marmot behind the drum kit, and, overcome by its cuteness and absurdity, people would gush without a second, or first, consideration of actual talent.
Being so young — having debuted at age eleven — Zac has the added quality of bringing in an even younger audience than Taylor. Chubby, unpopular girls, as well as spoiled, socially-repellant ones, ages ten to fifteen, can all bask in the reflected glory of this moist teen demigod.
