Re: America's got Talent
I've watched it a couple times. I think Simon Cowell, the Producer is a sick sadist and, most likely, feeds the public's desire to prefer failure and embarrassment, ahead of actual display of real talent. Notice how they show the whole performances of the horrible people and only show clips of the winning people. How do these horrid performers make it past the pre-screen?
Simple. The Producers and writers are sadistic sods (mostly Brits, who's media invented sensationalism and tabloid "journalism").
I'm sad for America...
