do you really think agt was that scripted? also do you still think babygate is going to end? I feel like you try not to give many opinions but will you say what you're thinking, at least a little bit?
Listen, when i was growing up there was a live tv show where fans could go and be in the audience while celebs were there being interviewed. I went to a few tapings. They had fans that they “randomly picked” from the audience who got to ask their faves a question. Now get this.
In order to be in the audience you had to be there 2-4 hours before the show started, so you probably had to skip school to get there. In the waiting room you were instructed where you were supposed to sit, how you were supposed to sit, you were told that you would prompted when to clap, laugh, cheer etc.
The people who got to ask questions were picked and interviewed before hand, you were only picked if you were outgoing and could keep your cool. Then you were told what question to ask, and you were told how to say it, and you had to practice it until they felt it looked natural enough.
this was for a tiny, low level after school show. AGT was not only that scripted, it was probably scripted more than we know. That’s not me crying becuase I don’t like what Louis said, that’s just the reality of reality tv shows. If you watched that and thought it was just him saying what he was thinking and feeling, well that’s nice but it’s naive and just not true. Those back stage bits were staged, he was for sure coached on HOW to judge, if not told exactly what to say (i.e. you say this about this contestant).
Reality shows like this are about the show, it’s not about what’s real and true. These things are rigged, he probably knew he was to put the girl through before she even performed. And as I say this, go back and watch clips. You can see in his face and his tone of voice when he went off script and what he was saying/feeling was genuine.
