But what is the future in the music industry for a bad singer? I guess I don't understand why it matters- these people would never get record contracts in the first place because they cannot sing. At least with this show, they have a chance to win some money and maybe a chance to do something non-musically. It's not ruining their chances to be a singer because they'd never ever be one in the first place, you know? Regardless, they signed up to be on the show. They're not being forced at gunpoint. Yeah, it's deceiving, but again, it's not ruining their chances for a musical career because let's face it, there is no talent there otherwise they wouldn't have made it ON the show!
