Have you ever seen someone booed and chased off the stage at the Apollo Theater? Do YOU remember The Gong Show?
The Gong Show, televised from 1976 to 1980, was a spoof on amateur talent shows, featuring some REALLY BAD acts. There were always one or two people who really had talent, and the winner earned the grand prize of $516.32.
"But generally it was the epitome of bad TV and a great example of what could actually pass for entertainment at the time."Hey, is that quote about The Gong Show (1976), or the American Idol Tryouts (2006)????
nostalgia, memories, American Idol, The Gong Show, talent shows
