I wonder if everyone is coached to be happy…
Most starving artists aren’t. On LAST COMIC STANDING, everybody is homeless, depressed and NEED success. On Idol, they’re happy and optimistic and want success.
Canadian Idol isn’t on when its demographic meet in school the next day. It’s a summer show. I wonder if that hurts or helps it. It sure helps the Internet, which becomes the watercooler.
I wonder how life changes for ANY teenager when they’re seen on IDOL.
Do kids that got teased before… Still get teased?
Simon may be kind by comparison.
