Philippines Talent Search

In this past few days i've been bugging myself to write something about this so called reality talent show which showcases talents who would be coached by a certain artist to become the next pop superstar in the country. and before I continue to do so, let me share with you what Mr. David Grohl stand about this. 

"When I think about kids watching a TV show like American Idol or The Voice, then they think, ‘Oh, OK, that’s how you become a musician, you stand in line for eight hours with 800 people at a convention center and then you sing your heart out for someone and then they tell you it’s not good enough.’ Can you imagine?” he implores. “It’s destroying the next generation of musicians! Musicians should go to a yard sale and buy an old drum set and get in their garage and just suck. And get their friends to come in and they’ll suck, too. And then they’ll start playing and they’ll have the best time they’ve ever had in their lives and then all of a sudden they’ll become Nirvana. Because that’s exactly what happened with Nirvana. Just a bunch of guys that had some old instruments and they got together and started playing some noise and they became the biggest band in the world. That can happen again! You don’t need a computer or the Internet or The Voice or American Idol.” 
Well heres my thoughts about this.

This so called talent search is just exploiting the artist and it's all about "FAME & MONEY" and not for this persons' talent. Let's say me, I will audition and my piece will be from The Sex Pistols or The Cramps or by our very own Wuds. Do you think someone from the coachs' would press their buzzers or the judges would not give me an "X"?

It is merely just for exploiting the artist and not really the talent this artist has. Look this so called coaches like Bamboo, Sarah Geronimo and Apl de App (Ms. Leah Salonga for me deserve to be a coach) from this three do you think this three has the right to coach a certain artist who is more talented than them? My gulay.... Oo....

Ok i'll admit it and not to be a hypocrite, I was conscious to see what this show is all about (I mean The Voice Phils.). I search for it in YouTube and there it is this young girl singing an acoustic version of a kundiman classic, And who do you think press the buzzer for her talent? anyways my friend told me that she got in and able to go to the 2nd round and again guess what? she got ejected.... yes my friend told me this poor girl got ejected and the reason is that she did not gave justice to the song choice (which i don't know who chooses for her).

So what now? what's the point of having this kind of talent show when they themselves so called coaches did not base their decision via artists' sheer talent but because he/she did not sound like the famous pop superstar from abroad... Ay gi-atay  lagi.... sus marya ka indo!

ayoko na! di ko na kaya to kayo bahala!
