OK this will be short and sweet, but I need to get something off my chest.
Winning a random ‘talent’ show on TV does not mean you are talented, nor does it make you a star or even mean you have any potential. You do not find great artists by dragging a big enough net and shoving your catch through a sieve.
By the very definition of these shows the winner must be assumed ‘talented’ or the shows are pointless, and what happens? Everyone raves about the winners for a month, then forgets all about them because they weren’t actually worth remembering.
This can’t be easy on the contestants who actually take it seriously – exploitation comes in all colors.
