Unless they're all lip-synching to somebody else's work, got to differ here.
Don't watch it, but can't imagine the pressure and practicing they go through on Idol as they either move up or get sent on their ways in tears. The good ones have to work very hard at their talent to not get humiliated and crushed like an ant in front of everybody.
PS Spears was accomplished Gymnast by age 9; lost Star Search her first attempt and was too young for the first TV show she tried out for (Mickey Mouse.)
