The singer takes it all first aired in the summer of 2014, and took on the challenge or competing for ratings against the shiny show of them all X factor. Although it didn’t make it to a second series it is how’re a perfect example of audience participation.
The programme format and concept is several hopeful singing on a moving conveyer belt in the hope of the audience(via a interactive app) putting them in the golden zone, so that they win money and the crown of glory.
I personally loved the show, I was in the comfort of my home acting as if I was Simon Cowell and fighting with my sister that she had made a bad decision voting ‘no’ for the contestant during the advert breaks.
Overall the idea or audience participation is an important aspect of media as it encourages more people to jump in and get involved and gives the audience a sense of opinion but it can be hard to keep the interaction sustained and hence can be very hard to get right which was clearly proven by The singer takes it all.
