Iglesias Blasts Talent Shows

Veteran crooner JULIO IGLESIAS has hit out at TV talent contests, accusing them of churning out instant stars who don't have the skills to last.
The 64-year-old, who boasts a career spanning 40 years and a staggering 77 albums, insists real singing stars will always shine through.
Iglesias explains, "Music is changing. But I always believe what is good will remain. Some people will come along and stay. Others will leave.
"There are now more opportunities for young people than ever before, but it seems all you have to do is win a contest on Thursday and go on tour on Friday. To be that good in a hurry is not good."

Io penso che Julio e uno dei piu' grandi, se non il piu' grande del suo genere. Tanti cantanti nascono al mondo, e altretanti spariscono nel nulla, come se non fossero mai esistiti. E lui invece ,no, lui rimane. Lui e' eterno.Io mi auguro che lui possa cantare ancora per tanto tempo, per lui e'il migliore
