Dave Grohl (the Foo Fighters frontman and former drummer of Nirvana) is at it again. This time he is quite vocal about American Idol and The Voice.
To be honest I hate reality TV with a passion. I only watch ONE reality show and that’s The Amazing Race (because the traveler inside me wants to see the world and I like to laugh at dumb people who think there are tigers in Africa). I don’t care if it’s scripted or not, because I find it interesting. And don’t get me started on The Biggest Loser, Big Brother, Temptation Island, Survivor, The Apprentice, Fear Factor and a whole list of mindless shows that are designed to give users the idea that they are not scripted and they are actually mimicking real life. I truly believe that if you want to experience reality you should switch that blabbering box in your living room and go outside – that’s real. I’m also a firm believer that old school rocks too.
Idols may have been interest when it was first broadcast in South Africa, but I really don’t have time to see people embarrassing themselves or to people singing covers of songs that I don’t really like. Same goes for American Idol. I’m not familiar with the Voice and I don’t think I want to be either. That said, I agree 100% with Dave Grohl on what he said about American Idol and The Voice.
