"talent shows"

Daily blog: Reality "talent shows" have become a huge part of the entertainment industry. Christina Aguilera has announced that she is quitting "The Voice" for good. She said, "It became something that I didn't feel was what I had signed up for in Season 1. You realize it's not about music. It's about making good TV moments and massaging a story."
Do you agree with her assessment of "The Voice" and other talent shows?

I do not agree with Christina Aguilera because I have watched "The Voice" for a couple years now and I really enjoy it. The singers get a lot of teaching and they better themselves with each performance. I believe that they need to put on a show to get the views but they do it with their personalities and it's not something that is forced.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

How entertainment marketing has changed

Daily Blog: Discuss how entertainment marketing changed after television became popular. Make a list of at least 5 changes since 1945.

Television changed the world. It has been one of the biggest inventions of time. Every house you go into has at least one television and sometimes more than that. I know in my house there is a television in almost every room. Do you ever just sit at home watching T.V. and a commercial for Hardee's pops up and they are advertising a huge Baconator and all of a sudden you are craving one of those burgers? That's the whole point of commercials. They are wanting you to go out and buy their product. How do you think they advertised for things before the television became popular? Businesses probably had a lot better sales after the television arrived. Television provided company's advertising. More businesses probably started to be made because they knew that if they were able to make a commercial and get it on T.V. then it could become successfu…
