Which would u watch? American Idol of America's Got Talent? Both are great shows, but which one is better? In american idol, its all singing and if u win, u get signed a record deal. In america's got talent, its a variety of all acts including singing, and if u win, u get sighned a performance deal in las vegas where record producers live. So, in a career choice, The most useful deal would probably be america's got talent because u get to perform all the time and u will have lots of chances to get picked up door a record produer. Ameican Idol can do lots for u to, dont get me wrong, but in my choice, if u are looking for a singing career, go with america's got talent, of audition for both, but not at the same time.
