I still prefer that they at least pretend to be on the lookout for recording artists.
They're on the lookout for a few viable artists but the majority of the contestants are boring fodder that has as much chance at a recording career as Zoannette. So I'm all for them mixing it up.
Imagine the show with a dozen "unique and memorable" Zoanettes. Could you take it as a serious singing contest?
IMO the results would be more entertaining than a show with a dozen Pia Toscanos doing ballads like a bunch of Miss America contestants.
I keep going back to Pia Toscano because I honestly can't remember the names of any of the female contestants...
