    You said it, so I don't have to. I've never understood the fascination the public has with kid talent. It's true, all one can say is ohhhhh. The sound of a child's voice is just that. I can barely stand most adult singers as it is. The only child singer I've ever liked was Michael Jackson. I like performers to be seasoned whether they sing or play an instrument. A child prodigy violinist leaves me cold.

    Jackie was really impressive- cute kid, great voice - but the guy who won - Michael Grimm - now that's real talent. He's probably the best talent I've seen come out of any of the reality tv talent shows.
