"God, if I see that video, or hear that record again, I will go berserk. What record you may be asking? The answer is Pure and Simple, by the new group called Hearsay. Now come on, I know they might be half decent singers and they will no doubt be number one, for about 20 weeks, but is this through their singing skills, or the blatant over-publicising, this group has received? I think it’s the latter. For those of you who don’t know ..." Read review

Can open a lot of doors

AdvantagesOriginal programe which is rare.

DisadvantagesHurtful if you dont make it through.

"For any one who has not seen Popstars, the idea is that 3 judges went up and down the country asking for people to audition for a New Pop Group. If you managed to get through the first round, which was basic singing, you were asked to stay to the next round which was singing with a partner to see how well you interacted singing with other people.

Quick, They're POPULAR - Criticise Them

AdvantagesGive them their 5 minutes of fame

DisadvantagesPeople's attitudes

"...of you who watched the Popstars show regularly, you’ll know that they both managed to blackmail the management of Hear’Say by threatening to reveal their house location before it the final five were known.

It's all hearsay

AdvantagesSee review

"...argued that the intention behind Popstars was to try and dispel some of the myths and criticisms around manufactured bands. It could be argued that Popstars is merely televisual confirmation that all your worst fears about the Pop industry are, in fact, true. Let's examine the evidence. The series as a whole has undergone something of a metamorphosis as time has gone on. The initial attraction of the show, heavily publicised in the run up to Christmas, ..." Read review

Fame and Fortune

AdvantagesWatching new 'stars' created from nothing

DisadvantagesPublic humiliation for some people

"...all the hype about it, Popstars is a fly-on-the-wall style documentary following the auditions of some 3000 wannabes, competing for a place in a new pop group consisting of just 5 people. ~ Episodes one and two saw auditions held in Birmingham, Belfast, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester and Southampton. There was a mixed bunch of performers, some obviously very talented, some simply deluding themselves. The common factor was the ..." Read review
