JtS... after the "spin", they are distinguished by the whole package, incuding marketability and that includes the works such as the "Pretty Factor". So, essentially, it's the same but different.

And, I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday. They had to audition for SOMEone to get on TV in the first place. It's just another talent show and my "like" is the hook line. Perhaps my post above was misleading... I like the concept of the show because it adds the premise I cited and such makes it more entertaining, even for someone as cynical as me. Even more so, the fact that the stars vie for being chosen as coach by the artist makes for great entertainment.

In any case, I like all talent shows because they give a lot of people a chance at a break. What I detest is the airing of untalented people in embarrassing situations... I think it is akin to bullying and it's just plain wrong ta this here little black duck.
