Nowaday there are different musical talent shows on the T.V. Like american idol and so many.. Do you think this really should go on? Man..I think music is not a thing that needs a stage to bring out. If you have talent then it will come out by itself. Wht u think??

I think going on those shows can help people to get discovered faster. The shows can be a sort of catalyst to their musical career, even if they don't win.

I don't thing who love music they woild hanker after fame. This shows will give them fame, money and lots of SMS. The feedback is nothing. Some weeks later all of them are just vanished. The total is ZERO (nothing).

Some of these people from American Idol end up going on to do Broadway even if they don't win. I wonder how hard it would have been for them to get into that if they didn't previously compete on American Idol.

yeah, partly it makes sense as it is not only singing that one can be discovered with a talent. yet, these talent shows that concentrate on singing are faster way to discover those with potentials. but aside from that, there can also be some alternatives to that such as here in the Philippines, we have starstruck and star circle quest in which programs look for some people, particularly teenagers with versatile yet variable talents like dancing and acting as well. from the passed years that these trends started, we are on about almost ten years that these talents who were discovered then, now are the main casts of drama programs and happened to be most highly paid actors and actresses of our country.

In our country (Bangladesh) there are about four talent hunt shows on run. All of these are finding the best single singer. Some who can sing really good, lacking of impression or drama they are just thrown out of the show. And some who can cry befor the camera, gets thousand of SMS which makes them winner T don't thing this is fare. This should not continue any more.

Hi! I'm not really an avid viewer of any talent show, but I think it's okay for talent shows to continue being aired on TV. Some people might be disinterested in these shows but it actually gives opportunity for others who are aspiring to be what they want. It is better if a talent show actually screens their contestants thoroughly to see who will really shine and who deserves the spotlight.
