This week we’re looking at the phenomenon of the TV Talent Show
TV talent shows such as American Idol and The Voice have divided opinion among musicians and vocalists across the globe. Sometimes these shows have opened our eyes to incredible talent – think of Susan Boyle. However, many have argued that the ‘fast track’ path to fame presented in these shows is a false economy. This week we’d love to hear the vocalists take on the ‘TV Talent Show’.
So the question is: In your opinion, do TV talent shows such as the X Factor and The Voice have a positive or negative effect on the industry?
Great Comments from last week:
Last week I asked: As an artist, what methods do you use (websites, forums, mailing lists etc) to keep in touch with your fans?
Kerry Garside Commented:
“Pretty well only facebook and email at the moment … trying to direct traffic to my website – try to not be too pushy or anything”.
The Vocalist Studio, United Kingdom responded:
“To broadcast: sites etc. To engage: Twitter”.
Keep the feedback coming guys, your opinions really do matter to us.
All the best,
