this one is nice!
still, typical selection, no one without a special trait, from teeth to leg, mole to age, same procedure everywhere.
no serious artist there, except perhaps siddony but may be limited by health.
but I loved the contestants, lovely people. they need to be realistic and not get hurt. it is an opportunity to get any job, and improve personal opportunities, when the person behaves nicely and can show some humor.
I hope they won't choose any candidates to go on air who are too nervous and sensitive to withstand the challenges. except for the winner, it is all about getting away without ridicule or bad trip.
it would be great when contestants as well as audience can put focus on music only. when music makes better ratings than scandal, the director has to follow. they cut it "just in time". it is adaptive concept. every week will be based also on reactions of previous week. (which scenes were popular, which stirred discussion, which were boring)
martin and gary are (also) rock stars, they went through a lot, became icons, and people forgave them. so we can count on them not to risk their reputations too much.
