One of the really amazing things about IMDb,,,
7 May 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... is that right now as you read these words you could go back in time and review the 1948 edition of Ted Mack and the Original Amateur Hour. Why, you are wondering, would you want to do that??? Because, as the name implies, that show really and truly was the original from which all current hit shows (Voice, Idol, etc) have sprung.

Interestingly, the concept died out for a few decades and then came roaring back into fashion. Which brings us to this show. First, it is not so much a show as a product. Big difference. The brains behind the show is John de Mol, the godfather of reality TV in the US, which means that the show was designed to be a hit before the first episode ever aired. Second, pay attention to the flow of a typical episode (I have seen them all, and I am not proud of that fact) and you will notice they spend more time promoting each other, and the show, than the so-called artists. Think about that. While you are thinking about that, notice that MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THE COACHES PICK THE WRONG SONG FOR THE ARTIST. With friends like that... Finally, since this is a formula product not a show (see above) every few years they end up with too much talent (where for example the top 2 contenders are about even and both deserve to win) and, also, seasons where all the contestants are duds -- like the 2014 season, where (trust me) very little actual record sales will result, regardless of who the winner is.

But the show has its moments. Watching Michelle Chammuel perform was a treat. Watch her in web clips and you will notice that a major talent was lost that season. Which is, oddly, what gives the show its panache. Not its carefully rehearsed moments. Its the ones that got away.
