This Weekend's TV Highlight: The Strange World of "Lucky Break"

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 3:32 PM

Hopefully, you have something better to do Saturday night than to sit at home at watch a dubiously produced local singing competition at 10:30 p.m., but I totally don't, so I'll be watching Desert Diamond Casino's Lucky Break on KOLD.

From KIIM's description of the event:

KiiM-FM wants to know ... can you sing?

I mean really sing.

Prove it.

KiiM-FM 99.5 is proud to present the Desert Diamond Lucky Break - a brand new TV show where someone can win $10,000 and an audition with record company executives! As long as you're over 21 all you've gotta do is fill out the form at the bottom of this page. Every week we'll randomly select 20-30 individuals to audition in person. Don't worry if you don't get picked the first week - once your name is in the hat we could pick you for ANY week!

After the initial auditions, a limited number of finalists will be chosen to sing on TV and compete to make it to the next round. At the end of the contest one lucky winner will end up with $10,000 and an audition with record company executives.

There's quite a few mystifying aspects to the show, from the fact that they barely announce who the judges actually are (maybe people from KIIM? Otherwise, I think former Wildcat basketballer Joseph Blair was one the week I watched) to the largely disinterested audience who showed up for this show for some reason. The singers range from comically amateurish to not that bad, but the very idea that these glorified karaoke singers would end up signed to a recording contract is absurd. I hope the winner enjoys their $10,000, however.

Still, if someone in charge of this thing, I'd love to judge some night. Just call me at the paper. I'm even willing to use a fake British accent, if that helps.
