Failure is Often More Fun, Too.
I used to watch American Idol a long time ago, but I wasn’t looking for, or even rooting for, the winners. In fact, once the show had gotten past the huge masses of people who tried out for it, and moved to Hollywood to pare the singers down even further, I often stopped watching. If you ask me, the most interesting acts are the ones we don’t see, or barely see. We see some of those acts if the producers just happen to come across someone who can be laughed at (remember William Hung). We see little snippets of really bad singers, or outrageous acts etc. What about all those people we don’t see? My guess is that there are a ton of gold in them thar’ hills. Some of that failure was really interesting.
