Comingling??? lol. It sounds like something you'd say to a fish when it knocks at your door :)

You know, I can't think of a talent show that was ever more than mildly interesting, often far worse than that. I saw quite a few of these shows when I was young and they were pretty painful too. Endless renditions of To Dream the Impossible Dream and My Way and God Bless the Child - give me a break!

It's hard to imagine a talent show that focuses on original talents with something interesting and new to offer. "Talent show" is as much of an oxymoron as "adult shop". George Orwell foresaw it all ... black really is white in the absence of light ...
