Obviously, the decisions of the ‘judges’ of such singing competitions will rarely coincide with the opinions of the viewers and the public.
To avoid, ‘eliminations’ with suspense/tensions, tears of participants and their parents eliminated and sad faces of judges, who themselves will be the cause for eliminations, etc., can we suggest that after a stage of such programs, say, at the top 20’s etc, the marks/votes can be given by the viewers?
