We don't get the American Idol and shows like that. all we get on Israel's Chanel One is news, shout shows and, on a good week, one one CSI and two Law & Order's.
I only know about the modern version of "Amateur Hour" from the internet. Here's my opinion about the following:
Can Adam Lambert win American Idol tonight?
Lambert expected to become first Jewish American Idol in the popular singing contest's history
He has a better chance if nothing is said about his being Jewish.
