We are all born with a talent for something. The question is, do we act on that talent or do we let it sit by the wayside?
In the summer of 2006, a new competition program aired on NBC. Entitled America’s Got Talent, the premise of the show is simple: anyone who believes that they have some sort of performing ability can audition for celebrity judges. Contestants who survive to the live round will then be judged by the viewing public. In the end, one contestant wins the cash prize and a show of their own in Las Vegas.
America’s Got Talent is one of those shows that I look forward to every summer. It’s simple, but there is pleasure in it’s simplicity. We cheer for the underdogs, those who are fighting for their dreams, but are just being denied at every turn. We want them to win because we gain hope through their victory.
I recommend it.
