									Talent Show

Idea of TV project “got talent” comes from British television. Author of idea and initiator is Simon Cowell's SYCO Company. Pilot show was first launched in
Great Britain. However first full version was shown in United States. As a result within this project bounds seeking for talents begun in 30 countries of the
world, including our country.

Britain's Got Talent first TV Show was first aired in 2007, June 9. Prize for the winners of the project was £100,000. In the end of the first season of Britain’s
Got Talent first discovered talent was Paul Potts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDB9zwlXrB8), who got contract with Sony BMG besides the prize
money. Winner of the season 2 of Britain’s Got Talent was 14 years old break dancer – George Sampson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyDnYeUnT7w).
Winner of the season 3 (April 11, 2009) group of street dancers _ Diversity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPcGy77Gru8).

sing talents is different in different countries. But in every country the winner is such manifestation of talent that is most valuable for these countries.
Partially, winner of Got Talent shows personal profile of the country. Talent elected with the majority of TV audience voices partially shows that this person
reflects in the best ways the ideas, the dreams, the demands citizens of that country are not indifferent about, moreover, they are very sensitive, very
emotional, very involved, very loyal.

In Georgia this project is called “Nichieri” (Talented). Firs season was aired in February 2010 and lasted up to April 3. During the whole season TV audience
was active. If we look at the rankings of that project during the whole season, we will see, that ranking index is quite stable. As to increasing TV audience on
the specific date is probably connected to audience interest in Talents on that specific date. Ranking of the final show is 33,5%.
These both pictures show that seeking talents in Georgia is of current importance and valuable work. No matter how we explain these percents, connect them
to the specific participants or turns, anyway, in total we will come to the conclusion that audience of the project has “demands for seeking talents”.

Hence, this project seems to be very popular in Georgia. Besides this, it has biggest plus not from the point of view of seeking talents and assisting them to
realize their talents, but simply because it gives opportunity to many people to show their abilities and that is why they become more wanted, more realized,
more satisfied and free.

Let’s put parallels between specificity of talents that were discovered in different countries.

Every third on this list was a singer, nearly 20% were dancers, 12% - acrobats or gymnasts, 10% were playing specific instrument. From the global scale of this
project only two participants had comic turns. As country talents on global scale there were presented only two magicians, one of them represented France
(2009:    Florian   _     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYiBqbixLSw&feature=related)          and   the   second    -   Switzerland   (2009:   Charlie   Caper   _
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4R_ub_cAGw). Until today mostly singers and dancers have been receiving status of talented. But sometimes happens,
that status of talented is granted to the person, who plays Sirtaki on his own tooth. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmFRny7gt84). Talents in most
different direction were revealed in Estonia, Finland, and France, German and Lithuanian people. Winner of German’s Got Talent in 2007 became trainer of
the dogs.

It is very interesting Estonia’s Talent specification in 2007. Estonian girl Kadi Liis was performing her talent – solving mathematical challenges very fast and
from memory – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBNrq28ADQY – this video is in Estonian and you won’t understand how the calculation process is
going on or what juries are talking about this girl, but even if you understood the language, for you probably it would be hard to understand the logic of the
people, whose wish was to grant Kadi Liis status of the most talented in Estonia.

Lithuania               Lithuanian Talent    September 27, 2009                          Season 1, 2009: Mikas (Play teeth)
In general, seeking talent is very subjective process for many reasons, in other words, the person, who is named as talent of one or another country, in reality
cannot be considered as most talented in that country, even for the selecting process means attracting persons with specific personal profile for this show. So,
                                                                  if we discuss ability to participate in that competition, this is already a variable, that will
                                                                  screen the winning potential of the talents, who do not will, don’t have demands and
                                                                  readiness to participate in such show. Besides this, screening of people, who participate,
                                                                  filtering them and moving to finale and win, as a result, mostly depends on people.

                                                                  Winner of “Got Talent" is the most talented participant, who best of all managed to charm
                                                                  the audience, made them to feel him and his talent very easily. Winner of this project is a
                                                                  talent who covers values of the country, where this contest is held. If we pick out every
                                                                  singer from that world wide TV project and ask specialists to evaluate them, it is very
                                                                  possible, that voice are distributed differently. For example, our “Nichieri” winner in season
                                                                  one became Levan Shavadze (http://nichieri.ge/levanfinali-2/), person, as well as Gulnazi
                                                                  Goletiani, was predestined for winning from the very first performance. We can say that in
                                                                  general, that talent became winner, which could easily wake up in audience what we can
                                                                  call it “Georgian”, Georgian spirit, social responsibility or “national satisfaction” or etc. In
                                                                  the very last moment the contestant’s “frankness” factor was added to this. Same time
                                                                  another contestant Ani Khanchaliani reached the final ( http://nichieri.ge/xanchalianifin/),
                                                                  the song she performed was much more corresponding to the concept of “Talented”,
                                                                  “gifted”. In the final she showed best performance compared to previous performances,
                                                                  probably was most perfected compared to other competitive turns, but it depends for who.
Exactly this “depends for who” is the basis for that project and the weak point. Exactly this remains the audience satisfied or some groups of this audience
displeased, correctly not satisfied.
It is interesting, that the winner of America’s “Got Talent" this year was chosen exactly with this “national”
sign, he was a farmer, singer and was singing the song of the genre, that was acceptable, easily taken to heart
for typical American (as for typical Georgian was Levan Sahvadze’s singing style and orientation).

                                                         KEVIN SKINNER _ WINNER _ SINGER/GUITARIST

                                         35 YEAR OLD MAYFIELD, KENTUCKY _ UNEMPLOYED FARMER



In general, we can say, that “Got Talent” is the best project to understand towards what is nation sensible and
what is the best way to gain their sympathy and loyalty and of course, to find talented people like Ani
Khanchaliani, Dato Robakidze or Ramaz Garshaulashvili.
