Which talent reality show is the fan favorite show? – Nicki Swift poll

Reality television has expanded greatly since “The Real World” premiered on MTV in 1992. And while producers have since launched every type of reality show under the sun, reality talent shows have always captivated audiences. Last summer, “America’s Got Talent,” which first premiered in 2006, dominated its competition in its Tuesday slot, according to Deadline. And though “American Idol” has continued to flourish well past its prime, when it catapulted singers like Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson to successful careers, it still beat other reality shows in 2019, according to TV By The Numbers (via Gold Derby) — and that’s without the charming wit of former judge Simon Cowell.

Newer generation programs such as The Voice, The Masked Singer and The X Factor have also established themselves as widely watched television and contributed to some of the biggest reality TV moments of all time. Just think of the excitement you feel watching the judges of The Voice argue over which contestants will join their team, or the thrill of fitting the costume each week in The Masked Singer see. Of course, we can’t forget the excitement of the fans when an America’s Got Talent judge hits the “golden buzzer” and sends the lucky contestant straight into the live performance phase. With so many to choose from, we asked Nicki Swift readers to vote on their favorite reality talent show to find out which is the best.

America’s Got Talent is the most popular talent reality series

It turns out our Nicki Swift readers love America’s Got Talent. Of the 582 readers who responded to the poll, 39.52% voted the NBC talent show their favorite. Unlike some of the other reality shows in the poll, “American’s Got Talent” doesn’t focus on a single skill like singing or dancing; It welcomes people of all kinds of talents, which may have contributed to its widespread appeal. Plus, the show has a great cast of judges and hosts, including “American Idol” alum Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, Howie Mandel and Terry Crews, per NBC.

The second most popular reality talent show is American Idol, which garnered 17.01% of the vote. Like many of its competitors, “American Idol” has changed a lot since it premiered in 2002, including losing its original panel of judges, which included Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul in addition to Cowell, and also moving from Fox to ABC, per Buzzfeed News . However, Nicki Swift readers have proven they still care.

“The Voice” and “The Masked Singer” took third and fourth place with 16.67% and 11.86% of the votes, respectively. Finally, rounding out the list are “So You Think You Can Dance” and “X Factor,” with 9.28% and 5.67% of reader votes, respectively, which makes sense considering the former went on an extended hiatus, per Cinema Blend, and the latter has been canceled entirely, according to Forbes.
