AMERICA!—Usually when you set a panel of judges, it is important that they, in some way, have some expertise in the arts i.e., music, acting, dance, something that qualifies one to judge. However, the producers of “America’s Got Talent” insults the intelligence of their audience with the likes of Howard Stern who doesn’t dance, sing, act or do anything of artistic relevance. And they pay him $15 million per season to judge people who have studied and prepared to perform in every aspect of the arts.
Stern is basically known for having an X-rated sex talk show that is rather insulting to any decent audience. The bottom line is that it is quite painful to sit for an hour or two watching people judging others and they have no talent what so ever themselves. They have been lucky to have good public relations to build the illusion that they are very special.
Speaking of talent, there is no doubt that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have what it takes to make an audience happy. They have been in the studio recording some of the old songs that made the world want to dance and sing. Gaga admitted that singing with Bennett was a dream come true.
“Each time we sing together,” she said, “It’s a discovery of something new. The lyrics and music makes you feel good deep inside. I’m very privileged to sing with Tony, He’s one of the masters of what he does.”
Lady Gaga has been making appearances on several of Tony’s concerts around the country and the audiences have been extremely receptive in every way. They have proven to be quite a team.
Forbes magazine columnist Shane Robinson who also dabbles in film scripts has decided to spend a year at Harvard and another year at Stanford. He says that he wants to learn every possible aspect of finance. Creating and developing a business, especially in motion picture production. “The technology has forced us to be aware of every aspect of creating a show or film,” he maintains.
“When I walk on a stage or in front of a camera I really want to know how things are put together i.e., lighting, sound, camera and what kind of professionalism that’s required by the crew and everyone else connected with a creative project.”
Shane makes it very clear that the days of an actor simply walking on a stage and totally depends on the director or a producer are over. “Because of budget demands, it is paramount that an actor or even the writer fully understands the craft of film making.”
