American Idol is today hottest talents search show in the world, discovering some of today hottest singer such as; Kelly Clarkson, Ruben, Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, and the most recently Jordin Sparks. The show starts off going around the U.S having peoples with a dream to audition for that one chance to be famous. Thousands of peoples audition but only 24 makes it to Hollywood and then it goes down to one winner. Throughout their journey they perform once a week and is eliminated one by one. After the success of American Idol some have try to do the same thing and in the past few months Thuy Nga created a talent show searching for the most talented singer and performer to be apart of the Paris By Night huge family. After weeks and months of hardship listening to auditions they discover 13 top singers. A fantastic show performs to the audience [PBN 86 – Semi final] separated the good singer from the amazing singer. From 13 they reduce to 7 sizzling singer in [PBN 87 – finale] and from that they discover 2 winners – the judges’ choice and people’s choice.
After the Thuy Nga Talent Show finale finish, American Idol started to go down into their finale. All of the results from American Idol seem to look like the Thuy Nga Talent Search. Thuy Nga eliminated singer by singer until there were only 3 singers standing on stage; Trinh Lam, David Meng, and Quynh Vi; while the American Idol stage stands Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Melinda Doolittle. From the start fans have deliberated that either Trinh Lam or Quynh Vi would win the competition for Thuy Nga and Jordin Sparks or Melinda Doolittle would win for American Idol.
Trinh Lam won the Judges’ Choice award and Melinda Doolittle was eliminated getting third place, but had won over the judges choice with flying colors – even to the point that Simon thought she was the winner before the top 2 was announce. All of the results from American Idols seem to be the same as Thuy Nga such as; Quynh Vi and Jordin Sparks, the amazing vocalists, going against the unique and talented David Meng and Blake Lewis. However, the end result was the only thing that came out differently. Simon Cowell once mentions that, “this show is about the voice” and I agree fully. Thuy Nga has great performers, but not a lot vocalist. Throughout the 6 years of American Idols the vocalist had always beaten the entertainer. Everyone can agree that Quynh Vi has an amazing voice just like Jordin Sparks while both David Meng and Blake Lewis are unique and entertaining. David is trying out for a Vietnamese contest but he is a Cambodian native speaker and Blake Lewis has amazing beat boxing skills which lead him to go all the way to the top.
So is the Thuy Nga Talent Search the opposite of American Idol? Tell me what you feel and think about this situation – should the vocalist win over the entertainer or the other way around?
