I loved Missy Elliot's Road to Superstardom and I watched the show every week, because I thought some of the girls were very hot and I liked some of the talent that was there, but has anyone ever seen this new show R U That Girl with TLC? I love TLC, but this show looks like it belongs on ABC Family. I want something hip and urban and I want insulting judges, not people who care. I want to be entertained. The next big musician needs to be amongst a pool of utter crap that gets abused. That makes the really good singer seem that much better and worth the time of me going out and buying their CD. Let me know what you think

Let's be real here. There is only reason that these well-known bands are doing reality television shows to get new band members. The people that are competing for these positions are desperate for the limelight. Once they get selected, they are going to be tied into a contract. They will owe the stars and not the other way around. The other members of the band will make the higher percentage of the profits, while the so-called winners get the raw end of the deal. And, if the band now no longer is enthused by the performer, or if their record sales suck, the "winner" loses their job without any consequence to the band. So, the band gets free exposure, a cheap performer who won't sap their profits, and a quick way to ditch the person should they not work out.
