Hey guys, don't u think that most of the singing reality show winners fail to make it big in the music industry? I think this is pretty obvious after seeing so many reality show winners finding it difficult to make a stronghold in the music world. They get recognition all through the show and even hog the limelight among the people, but very soon after the show goes off air they are no where to be seen. Except for few, we hardly get to see singing reality show winners giving their voice or coming out with something unique that will define their talent that got them the coveted title. What are your thoughts regarding this? What might be the reason behind this? Please leave your thoughts!

Well, maybe it's because the SMS polling system. hahaha.. I know it is true that the more SMS that you got means the more you are be loved by the people. But, then I came up with the question, what if the SMS that you got is all from your own family? What if, the people are actually not really like your performance, but because your family are rich or famous, then it's you who got the most SMS polling. Besides, it can be caused by sympathized. I mean, few years a go, there was a reality show like that, and the show was once revealing the personal life of the finalist. One of them had not really a good voice, but he was coming from a poor family. And the final result was the poor one was the winner. haha.. And after that, no one ever see him on TV anymore. If it was me, it will hurt my pride a lot. It's like "why you choose me to be the winner, and after that you never use me on shows, and forget me?"

Hey thanks a ton for your response. Yes u are absolutely right, even i think most of the votes given are either from the same family or either sympathy votes. There has been many occasions when the singer is not singing that properly but still that person is able to garner lots many votes in his or her favor and in case he is the winner, he is no where to be seen after wards. Unless and until u do not struggle in this industry, no body would care for u no matter how talented u are. What say?

There was also another story about singing contest here in my country, about 8 years ago. There was a man, a handsome man to be certain, became the finalist of the show. Since it was top 6 or top 5, all of the judges agree that he was the one who going home. But in fact, his handsomeness brought him to be the runner up. And today, he is rarely showed on TV. He acted in some movies, and only had one or two music albums. Since he was the runner up of a singing contest (8 years ago), I think he should have more music albums than movies, shouldn't he? Yeah, I think it depends on the winners themselves whether or not they can survive in the entertainment industry, which I heard it is very hard to do. But, I heard that the new winners has a contract with the contest-maker or someone from the television before they can struggle themselves in the industry. So, how about that? If the manager or the producer can't promote the singer very well, it will be unfortunate for the winner, won't it?

Thanks a ton for your response. Yes u are very much correct, it also happens that sometimes a contestant's good looks and mass appeal gets him a lot of votes from the public and they are always on the safer side whether they sing properly or not and this is totally unfair for those who are talented enough but are getting less votes. Yes there is a 1 year contract for the winner with the show to have their album but that too gets released after a year or a two. If they do not struggle then who will remember them, no body will come to them and take them to the top. What say?

I think it is their lack of talent. The reality shows are not really reality. They do auditions but just to gather crowd and shoot the crowd that so many people where their at auditions and they selected the best ones. The fact is that they already have chosen the contestants within their circle and for more have sold the seats. I have been there so I know how it works.. what really happens is not shown. I wrong picture is shown later by editing an all. so yeah this cheating has to be paid off and this is the result. Thanks fir sharing and have a wionderful day ahead.

Hey thanks a ton for your response. Well yes who better than u can tell about the reality of these reality shows as u have been to a singing reality show as u have mentioned earlier. Yes u are absolutely right, may be it is because of their lack of talent that they are fading away into the oblivion. U can see them famous on one day and the very next day their charm is already gone barring the few. Unless and until u do not struggle in this industry, no body would care for u no matter how talented u are. What say?

I think that the reason that they don't manage to make it big is because of the fact that they do not find fame in the right way. You are much more likely to create a bigger fan base if you start from the beginning and work your way up. If you try to get in right at the top then people are just going to forget about you because you don't manage to make your own fans; they would be more like fans of the show rather than being fans of you as performer, so once the new series of the show starts they are not going to be interested in you anymore.

Hey thanks a ton for your response. Yes whatever u said was absolutely correct. Once a new series starts people starting following that series and forget whatever has happened in the past series. There is nothing better than starting from the base and going up higher with the dint of your hard work, talent and dedication and only then u will have real fans around u who would demand u to come into the industry without getting lost anywhere in the crowd. What say?
