What’s up with America’s Got Talent? With so much amazing talent this season, I was looking forward to see who would emerge as best of the very best.
But, it appears the judges and producers are going for a ratings-grab-freak show. The poll on their web page this morning is clear: 92% of viewers believe the judges sent the wrong folks home. The viewer comments are blistering. I’m personally livid that so many talented women were sent home to make room on the bench for more men. There’s something really sick about passing over Kari Callin and an angel of a little girl from Hawaii for a dominatrix.
With the economy in the sewer looking up at the toilet, I think the American people need to see dreams coming true. We need to be reminded that hard work plus talent can make us winners too.
But, most of the talented folks got sent home. What message does this send?
