Everyone knows just how easy it isn't to bust in to the music business. My cousin had a great band, everyone who hears them is totally impressed, but they could never get off the ground. And yet morons like Justin Biebier are all over the place. Sorry, did I say that out loud? I just don't get the whole thing with him.
Some people get really lucky on a certain reality tv music show I'll just call American Schmidol. But who doesn't think that's rigged anymore, really? Especially with the smarmy judges pulling the strings. I like the idea PopStation has -- no gimmicky celebrity judges, just the actual audience voting.
Here's how it works: PopStation puts original songs up in their practice rooms, different genres on different days. Then contestants can record them on their own, show their stuff, innovating, have a good time. After that, the songs are submitted to the audience for voting.
The cool this is that every three months, someone wins! That someone gets a paid trip to NYC and time in a professional recording studio with a professional production crew. They get to make an album, which is then featured on PopStations website. Oh yeah -- and it's free! Free is good!
Damn. Makes me wish I could sing.
