At the Rainforest Fund Gala in New York City, the legendary singer tells Showbiz Tonight that he doesn’t watch singing competition reality shows.
“I don’t watch them. I don’t like them very much, but the people who go on them, some of them are very talented,” said John. “What I do fear is what happens to them after they win or when the show’s finished.”
John, who was a guest judge a few years ago on “Idol,” says he worries about the contestants who chose to compete on these shows.
“I have nothing against people going on the show, it’s just I worry about what happens to them afterwards… 'cause the next year there’s another winner, and I can’t even remember who won the first voice thing.”
Tune in to Showbiz Tonight on HLN at 11 p.m. ET/PT for more on Elton’s comments.
