What does American Idol, The X factor, Britian's Got Talent, and all shows of that variety have in common? If you can find the Bests Of, you can often find some really good talent to follow. No, I don't really like the shows themselves (although every now and then you find a gem like then 84 year old Ray Jessel with his America's Got Talent audition, that one still makes me laugh so hard I cry, ahem). These types of shows have helped bring such groups as Pentatonix to fame (Check out their Silent Night if you are in the mood for Christmas, or if you want something else, check out their Save the World/Don't You Worry Child - Pentatonix (Swedish House Mafia Cover)). I have seen some beyond amazing singers, not all the winners. Often the best did not win, and I am glad because they still went on to sing, but had more creative control. One of my favorite discoveries (not as famous on this side of the pond), is Janet Devlin, this little bit I added below is an upbeat fun little song. I love this one. I have it cranked right now, inspiring me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPuMQv5pk6E

I have some weird Trivia, Eventhough she is not getting any promotion, Susan Boyle's albums are still charting. No music videos, no radio airplay but the fanbase she developed from her Audition in Britain's got talent, still buys her songs. The music video you shared reminds me of both red riding hood and alice and wonderland.

These kind of shows were also in the 70's and the 80' and a lot of serious artists got their chances through those shows. Also some singers were in the "star search", a talent show that have been on air from 1983 till 1995, and famous artist like Christina aguilera, Beyoncé, usher and Justin timberlake were there. Also Carrie underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Louis and much more were candidates or winners in talent shows. Because I love music so much I watch all of this shows in my country and used to watch sometur seasons of American idol before I got rid of my Tv. But I also love to watch the high lights of these shows from around the world on YouTube. You can see some pretty amazing things there.
