  1. Regardless of the fact that I don’t find it entertaining, I just don’t think it’s a good idea for kids’ mental health to be on reality shows. The pressure is too much and I imagine it wouldn’t be much fun in the schoolyard after. I always thought Idol, X Factor, The Voice, etc should be over 18.

  2. One of the problems is that talent alone won’t connect with viewers. You need some depth and believability when singing to an audience. Unless the kids are going to be single hi5 and wiggles numbers…
