TORPEDINE AND THE TALENT SHOW by Daniela

I want to explain the meaning of the video posted by Michele Torpedine.

During the program Dancing with the Stars, Carolyn Smith, great friend of Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio,  said that she loves all three boys and says that next time it would be nice to invite Michele Torpedine to perform a dance, in Dancing with the Stars.

In fact the idea would be good, I think we would all look at Michele juggle into a dance.

But why did Michele Torpedine make a collage of all his interventions in the various television programs, putting in opening and closing, the request of the nice Carolyn?

I’ll explain it to you right away.

You should know that Michele Torpedine, who you have come to know as a person who has no hair on his tongue (says what he thinks), has recently been very critical of Italian talent programs.

He does not disagree with the type of program, but with the judges that are used, because they are often very incompetent people, who know nothing of the subject, but are known public figures, and therefore are used as judges, only to have the audience view the program.

In this way, the work of these program talent is debased, because they should bring to light the true talents, instead there are inexperienced judges who do not recognize the value of the boys who are in front of them, often killing their expectations and their hopes.

Certainly, Michele, with his experience in the musical field, both as an instrumentalist and as a talent scout, would certainly give a nice support, in these programs where music and song seek new talents………..but he is never called to be a judge.

For this reason, Torpedine wanted to make a video collage of all the interventions in TV programs, where he reiterated this concept.

He has made it clear several times that, if he were called to be a judge, he could even think of going into these programs.

Ironically, Michele starts with Carolyn’s video and ends with the same video, to confirm that the only talent program he received a formal invitation to participate in was Dancing with the Stars, through the nice Carolyn.

Too bad the program is a talent for dancing and not singing !!!!

These are the words that Michele Torpedine wrote in a post on his Facebook page, LA TORPEDINIERA:

“Today the discovery of new artists takes place through the commodification of talent.

Without the visibility that only a talent show or a platform like YouTube can give you, there is no way out of anonymity.

However, for someone like me, who does not give up yet and never will, the greatest desire, especially when I see the raging nothing, is still to go to the places where live music is played and there to search, listen, ask … where you least expect it!”


“Discovering and bringing a hidden talent to success, getting it to be applauded all over the world, well, that’s another thing.”

Michele Torpedine


Needless to say, I completely agree with Torpedine.

The Italian talent programs, unfortunately, cannot be judged by people who are not completely educated on the type of talent they must judge or so inexperienced that they cannot be judges.

Congratulations Michele, for stating all of this, in the various programs, you will be more liked …… or more hated ???

Surely it depends on the point of view.
