The iTunes Charts Are All About Talent Competition Shows
There was once a stigma that if you were involved in talent competition shows, either as a contestant or a judge, that you were a hack or a has been who could only make it through a reality TV show. But those times are changing. The clearest indication of that is a glance at the top 20 charts on iTunes. Talent competition people are all over that.
We told you about how both Blake Shelton and Adam Levine had albums dropping on the 3rd and they made a little bet. As of today Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues is in the #2 spot while Blake’s Texoma Shore is at #3. I guess Blake may have to pay up. But if you look closer you will also see that Kelly Clarkson, winner of the first season of American Idol and next year’s coach on The Voice, is # 10 and America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal is #14.
What I’m saying is that the stigma of the talent competition show in the music industry has faded a lot. After all, if it sells that’s all they care about. And one thing is for sure: these talent shows are popular.
