Jamie: Kat, I've been calling you.
Kat Benton: I haven't been answering. I've been deciding what I'm going to say to you. Look, I went into this knowing I was No.2, but I thought maybe some day I'd be No.1. But I was wrong and that hurts so much. I made this for you.

Not only does this show give some insight as to what the world is like after winning an American Idol like contest, but it also has the romance and drama of The OC, the wit and humor of Degrassi, and a fabulous soundtrack to boot. Instant Star follows the winner of a singing talent contest that is comparable to American Idol, as she makes her dreams come true. Jude Harrison is a teenager who is just getting used to the whole fame thing- spending hours in the studio recording, going to school, going on tours, promoting her music every spare second she has.. and managing to add a bit of romance in her life. Instant Star shows us the life we wish we had in the spotlight, and also some real life issues that everyone has to face whether they're famous or not. Instant Star is an even balance between Jude Harrison's work and her real life- it is never more about romance than the music. The music featured on Instant Star is definitely what keeps the show together. Every episode features a brand new song that connects to the show and what Jude Harrison is up to. Alexz Johnson, who plays Jude Harrison, has written many of the songs featured in the television show, and you can see the connection between the song and the artist when she performs. As a teenager myself, I can watch and see issues that I am currently dealing with in my own life be acted out on Instant Star. I love that I am able to connect my own life with that of Jude Harrison's, it definitely brings every celebrity down to my own level- everyone is human, everyone has problems in their lives. Instant Star has just the right amount of drama, plenty of comedy, and the most adorable romances. The music in Instant Star is great, Alexz Johnson has a voice that cannot be compared to anyone else's. Each season that goes by, not only do we see Jude Harrison grow as an artist on the show, but we also see Alexz Johnson grow as an artist. Instant Star is the perfect television show- the acting is never cheesy, the music is always fantastic. Jude Harrison is the girl you wish you could be, living the life you wish you had. The next best thing to living it, is definitely watching it.
