What do you think of Glee, the Fox hit tv show? I think it is a great show that seemingly caught everyone by surprise that it would become a hit. Even Simon Cowell had to agree.
I read this article in CNN and according to Digital Spy, X Factor creator Simon Cowell says the hit Fox show about a high school show choir helped inspire him to bring his British show stateside.
“If somebody said to me five years ago that one of the biggest pop stars or groups in the world was going to be a glee club, I never would’ve believed it,” Cowell said. “What they’ve done with ‘Glee,’ I believe, is that they’ve broken away all boundaries; all shapes, all sizes all mixed together, but it just works.”
On “Glee,” it’s all about the talent, and each glee club character is an individual with different styles. The success of the show speaks volumes, Cowell said.
“It kind of goes against record company thinking… because they like to think in terms of everything’s gotta be perfection,” he said. “But ‘Glee’ changed the rules and that’s part of the reason we are making this show. To prove that actually you shouldn’t have rules for talent…It should be, if you’re talented or if you’re different, you should have a chance to succeed along with anyone else.”
Wow! I’d say this had got to hurt! Imagine your name being called out as the winner … only to have minutes later be revoked and being told that there was a mistake. Wow! That is all I can say. The recent Australia’s Next Top Model tv show just had that anomaly. Although I have to admit the real winner is more beautiful that the other one, they should have stuck with what was announced.
The reason was that total vote count changed at the last minute, I would say that was lame. There is always a cut off time where all votes before that will be counted as valid. The 1st runner up should still have been declared as the winner. Instead, she had the awkward moment on live television telling the host that it is alright. It is not alright. I know her ego was hurt.
People said that happened because they wanted to boost up the ratings. I do not think that is a fair assumption. It was really just a bad mistake. Still, congratulations to the winner. She is more beautiful and taller. But the way the announcement of the winner was handled. I would say they should have stuck with their initial announcement. Check out the video and let me know what you think?
Before I don’t use to watch US top series and reality TV shows like the America’s next top model (ANTM), but now that I have so much spare time staying at home when I’m not modeling or doing my side job, I can watch any movies and series downloaded by my husband. (lol) And since I couldn’t join this competition so I guess I’ll just have to enjoy watching it. Hehehe.
ANTM is the place for all aspiring models and who wants to be on the spotlight with the famous models of the world. This show is now on it’s 12th season and the latest episode is now on its top 5 candidates. One of my favorite candidates is Celia. She is just so fashionable, knows how a model should look and even amazes Tyra and the judges with her get up every judging day. When ANTM started this season she really was my favorite and I can see her improving and doing things well every episode. On the other hand, I always hate Sandra even from the start of the show. She messed up on their first pictorial and nagged with the other two candidates and for me that is so unprofessional of her. I think she has an attitude problem. And every time she’s being interviewed, she always stress that she will be the next top model. Uhh! My God! Well Unlucky of her she didn’t make it and just made me very happy to watch the rest of the episodes without seeing her. (lol)
