    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I was talking to some friends recently, and they mentioned that American Idol is really ShowTime at the Apollo ... STOLEN?!

    They have once again taken an idea presented by Blacks ... and made it their own?

    Do you agree, or is this too much of a stretch?

    :heart:

    um

    i've been thinking about this
    all though the is a variation of showtime
    i think is very different

    so i would say that it's a stretch

    when you look at it from a different view yes they stolen the idea
    yet different in the whole picture and structure of the show

    ShowTime at the APOLLO .....has a flair and real true talent

    American idol......is a like a game show to see who can out do the next to win
