Normal french people become singers magically.
3 January 2005
I , and most people , have always considered the french as cult and
intelligent people. I was ashamed when all people in my country was
mesmerized by our local version of "star academy" , thinking that
TV/music would be better in foreign countries. I can't explain how much
I laughed when I started watching this show in french TV. It is even
tackier than the Spanish version .They pitifully try to imitate
Americans and the songs they sing sound almost identical to each other.
There is no need to say that when the program ends the "artits"
automatically become into stars and assault the boards with their awful
albums("one hit wonder" expression was invented for these people).
Nevertheless , I'm a little worried about it all. Music has a new
illness: Fake music , sung by non-talented people that rise high with
the help of media. In USA it is almost acceptable because private tvs
do it(and ,eventually, it can't be distinguished from the habitual
American artists) whereas in Europe public tvs are the perpetrators!
PS: In Spain we don't have "Operacion triunfo" anymore. Something to
imitate ,dear french.
