The Funphibian doesn't really care how good the music is, it just cares the Trolls sing in harmony. If a Troll like Sky Toronto is incapable of singing well, then the Trolls need to match that Troll's bad notes, not have the struggling Troll match the rest of the Trolls. It appears in Hitting the Sky Note.
