Fantastic!
10 April 2003 | by (San Diego, Ca) – See all my reviews

I tune into this show all the time I think it's fantastic the performers are super talented, and the singing's incredible. This show is hosted by Arsenio Hall and is on CBS Wednesdays and Fridays. One time one of the singers sang Part of your world from The Little Mermaid. Another time they had a dude that looked like Tom Hanks. At the end the judges each give the performer or performers 1-5 stars. One time Raven Symone was the guest judge on the show. Then the 3 performers with the most stars go to the semi finals to win some cash. Last night they had a comedian and all the judges jinxed him. I like this show it's better than American Idol.
