Description

The letssingit lyrics grabber always returns success (and a mostly empty boilerplate xml result) even when it has found nothing. This makes the frontend stop scanning grabbers at that point and just show an empty lyrics page from letssingit, even if subsequent grabbers would have succeeded.

In fact I have never seen the letssingit search succeed and when I visit the URL which the script is hitting e.g. https://search.letssingit.com/?a=search&l=song&s=The+Beatles+Hey+Jude with FireFox? I get presented with a "Prove you aren't a robot" captcha thing. Or I did earlier today -- right now the site simply isn't responding from my IP although it is from my VPS -- I suspect I have failed the test and been blacklisted!

I'm not sure we can (or should) bypass the captcha so I will attach a patch which drops this particular lyrics grabber (AFAICT just removing the file is enough, there is no listing in a .pro file etc to be removed).
