[2014 VIDEO] ARE SINGING COMPETITION SHOWS ON THE WAY OUT? AMERICAN IDOL & THE VOICE FIGHT TO STICK AROUND

Sorry, it’s been a while since my last blog post.  My real estate world has been so busy that it gives me little time to write.  But today I reflected back on a video I posted on The X Factor long before its demise.  It’s funny to see that all predictions came true.  If only Simon Cowell would have listened to my suggestions, his show may have had the success and longevity of American Idol.  Such a waste of a well produced show, I was sorry to see it canceled in the U.S.

This year the singing competition shows were all a complete bore.  I cringed while watching American Idol and The Voice.  They were both lacking their original magic…so I could only bear watching a few episodes.  The judges were not fresh and the contestants did not have the excitement of past singers.  Was it just me?  Or were you thinking the same thing?

Even the return of Jennifer Lopez to American Idol was clearly disappointing.  While she will forever be my favorite judge on any singing competition show, the chemistry was just not there.  Did she even like Harry Connick, Jr?  JLo even looked slightly bored on several of the shows.  It may have just been a quick payday for her or something to boost her new CD.  But she should have just had a V8:)

Are singing competition shows on the way out?  Probably so.  It will be interesting to see just how long American Idol and The Voice will stick around.  Maybe we are burning out on these type of shows and need something fresh to watch.  Reality TV appears to be strong and not going anywhere anytime soon.  But they may need to find better ways to promote singers in a new light.  Will America’s Got Talent do it this season?  We shall see…

VIDEO 9/13/11: “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT” FINALS; WHO WILL WIN?

America’s Got Talent aired the finals tonight with a host of incredibly talented contestants.  It was down to the final four including; Poplyfe, Silhouettes, Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., and Team ILuminate.  This was definitely the best line-up of contestants since the shows inception, and most gave stand-out performances.

This will be a close race for three of them, unfortunately, my early favorite Poplyfe may have fallen short tonight.  It is truly anyones race, but my favorite performances of the evening were ILuminate and Silhouettes.  Their originality and perfection would do exceptionally well in Vegas and I see them going all the way.  They rocked it tonight!

In the end, the performers provided a season filled of excitement and a offered a big improvement over past contestants.  My only confusion is why a show called America’s Got Talent, has no American judge?  It seems as though the British continue to take over our airwaves and isn’t Howie Mandel Canadian?  I guess America’s Got Talent, just not with judges…not that I don’t love Sharon Osbourne.

UPDATE 9/14/11: Series finale, and the winner is…YOU WILL NEVER GUESS!

(VIDEO) 2011: SILHOUETTES AMERICAN PRIDE PERFORMANCE ROCKS “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT”

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT featured one of their best tonight.  Silhouettes performed an incredible tribute to the U.S. troops with American Pride.  They are always creative, but this performance put them at the top of the list to earn the million dollar prize.  It was a moving tribute and whoever choreographed this routine was a genius.

If this does not win them the prize, I don’t know what will.  Premium talent is usually hard to find on this show, and tonight was no different, but they saved the night with this performance.

The troops should be thanked every day and Silhouettes did them proud!

TEEN SENSATIONS, SINGING WAY TO STARDOM (Video Thia Magia)

Thia Magia was only 14 years old when she blew this song out on America’s Got Talent.  Maybe American Idol changed the entry age to 15 years old this year after seeing Thia.  Good thing they did, because these young singers are blowing me away!
