15 Seconds of Fame !
9 November 2007 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

An opportunity to show your artistic talent for millions of TV's viewers, some judges to evaluate, a million dollar reward and a chance to work in Vegas ! I think that most of who we watched at this very show were coming because of the first line (The opportunity to show..) ! But anyway if they had won that valuable chance to show, to be insulted, to lose or even to win.. we as the poor viewers hadn't anything at all except some assured provoking time !

Actually this is not a lame time or a dull show only, it's a demonstration of a lot of things. For instance, what is the judgment's basis ? To be funny ! Or to be cute ! No I think they want the most catchy non-freaky show which is suitable for Vegas, deserving the big reward and the most important thing to be that likable in the eyes of the judges ! So far so good BUT what if the chaste judges are judging by their personal gusto or lust ! (to prefer a female stripper to a more TALENTED competitors !), and honestly what if those judges are not qualified for judgment ? (Brandy Norwood as a judge ?? with all due respect ; judge yourself first !). To tell you the ugly truth some of those judges wouldn't stand for seconds as a competitor in this very show ! (No offence).

Secondly look at the cheap way of dealing with the competitors. We are not allowed to watch the whole shows (good or bad) because the judges' stupid caprices which are bizarre to a freak extent more often than not ! So the shock of foolishness is very powerful especially for the real gifted ones who are searching for an objective look, a fair judge, a useful true advice and a respectable handling. Not to treat them like channels in front of a boring viewer who is holding a crazy remote control !! So after watching how this is working I think the one whoever goes to it as a competitor is the one who mistreating themselves as well as abusing their talent ! Unless the priority of "go public" or "go for the green" comes first !

Therefore (America's Got Talent) is the (top of silliness) or the too dull copy of (American idol) or whatever the successful formula of TV's shows in the 2000s done by (Simon Crowell)'s lucky intelligent faculty. Also it managed to be a sign for how money and fame, by any way, became the main desires or dreams for anybody out there, and how the impetuous media tempts it to the highest possible level putting in mind that the system, so the manner of evaluation, had gone down to the rock bottom as the idiotic belittlement of the yearning talents became the fate on what deserved - in this particular case - to be called worthily : The Idiot Box !

So if you're feeling as me that the rules of our days turned away form even (Andy Warhol)'s 15 minutes of fame to this horrible absurd condition so treat this show as it treats its talents .. Turn it off for more attractive show or channel, simply because (America's Got Talent) got no talent except for vapidity and provocation.

P.S : When some smart judge told a clever Parrots' trainer once that her show is pathetic and he could do what she does if he stayed with her parrots for one HOUR ! despite that the sweet trainer answered that she pulled off her hard training in 15 years.. I thought that this judge is the real parrot.. and with a gifted bad mouth too !
