Trance (especially the kind with vocals) is the pop music of the electronic music genre. It's meant to appeal to the masses and fill clubs. Over the years I've seen all the top trance DJ's (PVD, Oakenfold, Armin, Tiesto, etc) and they don't put any effort into it. They know they don't have to put together even a halfway decent performance to sell tickets or fill the dance floor.
