How junk TV talent shows should be.
13 March 2021 | by Wisesoldierthe6See all my reviews

The hosts were cool, they were not jumping around yelling like a bunch of hungry mutts.

This Talent show were executed perfectly. It had an organic quality...Contestants were cool and natural. The Audience wasn't filled with prompt fake audience members. If it was then they knew how to act natural. The hosts and judges made this show unique. In today's talent show they all look the same. They all look like actors and have a specific type of look and personality. Now we are stuck with hash called the masked singer...oh boy...

Verdict: Rising stars
