006 Cowell Factor

Idol finally made it to Hollywood in an effort to find 12 people who could actually sing! Ryan Seacrest says there's an unbelievable amount of talent this year. Where has he been the past month?

Simon’s been working hard to spice up the X Factor judging panel with Victoria Beckham. Her credentials…even less talent that Danny Minouge.

My Fame Games artist picks this week include female artist, Naomi Striemer for her well structured power pop song “Images.” R&B talent Bobby Tinsley out of Tampa, FL has a song “What About Bob” that’s quirky, and original. Both these artists have real talent, please don’t stop!

It’s not without saying that I get a lot of emails knocking talent shows like American Idol. Is American Idol irrelevant this year though? When times are tough and people are losing their homes and jobs, how are people gonna feel sorry for a kid who loses it because he can’t play his guitar in an audition?

But no matter how bad the economy is or how low you feel, people will always need music simply because it is the only escape from real life. Your song can become someone’s symbol of hope.

To you, the artist, struggling to make your music heard, I say this – your song always has the power to change people’s lives!

One email I got in this week said, “We don’t need to get rid of big record labels, they will get rid of themselves.”

But the question I propose is, do we actually need big record labels? Now that we have the internet do you think we still need them? And with that…will A&R die? Tune in to this podcast and find out!

If you've only got ONE shot at FAME you might as well get it right!!
