More of a talent show. There's America's Got Talent, which consists of Sharon Osborne, David Hasselhoff and that Piers guy, who also judges on the British version. It's all kinds of acts, all different ages.
The prize on the British show is to perform in some sort of thing for the Queen, I think? And I think the prize on the American version is $1 million smackers or some outrageous amount.
Last year on the American version, a pre-teen girl won for singing. I heard her once when I happened to tune in, and she was pretty impressive. I didn't catch any of the other acts.
I'm not really keen on the show, but some of the clips of the British version I've seen online are pretty great - Opera Guy, Baton Guy, Michael Jackson Monkey Puppet Guy ...
