Why do some people succeed at talent shows

and others fail to be noticed?

IMTA New York is coming up July 15-19,

and I’ll be there to judge…

I have been judging this show for International Modeling and Talent Association – the largest talent show not televised – for about 10 years.

Twice a year – in LA and in New York, I go to scout for talent.  And I have seen a lot of of very promising performers.  

The show has been the springboard for Eva Longoria, Elijah Wood and Ashton Kutcher, among dozens of familiar faces.

Why do some people succeed at talent shows and others fail to be noticed?

 Yes, there is a reason. The ones who grab your attention, the ones who burn themselves into your brain – have a great passion for performing, and it can be visible and evident in the smallest of performances.

It is something that takes over their entire body and mind, and spills over into the hearts and minds of the judges.  

It’s not enough to have talent,  Talent is common.  Coming alive when you perform is not as common.

My suggestions to wannabes:

1)   Be prepared – your performance day is not the time to learn a new song and sing it..Know it so well that it’s second nature.

2)   Show your passion exuding from your eyes and radiating from your body.

3)   Pick appropriate material considering who you are, your age, your abilities.

4)   Know that you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

5)   Practice, rehearse, wear your performance like a second skin.

6)   Do your warm ups – singing, dancing or acting.  Get your voice ready, get limber, be happy in your skin.

7)   Connect emotionally and visually to the judges

8)   You must want it so badly you can taste it.  Maybes never win.

You have one minute to win me over.  Show me what you’ve got, I want to see it!

Great American Song Contest.

Lyric Evaluations & Songwriting Consultations

Time permits only a few Songwriter Consultations and song evaluations.

But I really do enjoy helping songwriters to take a look at their work, and recognize the flaws in their thinking process that somehow keep good ideas from becoming great songs.

There are definitely tips and tricks that a successful writer learns along the way. I try to impart some of them to those who are willing to listen.
