        Ok whoever is there at the show has clearly never been there!They always ask the three same questions. Something about the guest,the punch line to a joke he said and the first person’s name and where he was from

                                                                                        I don’t want to say anything bad about Nick (the guy that sang) because I’ve never heard him sing in a real setting where he can showcase his skills, but it does look like he didn’t do his best.

                                                                                        He did waste a great opportunity, though. When you’re a singer, if you want to become a worldwide selling artist, the main thing you need is exposure. He should’ve used the few seconds given to him to really showcase his voice.

                                                                                        Millions of people watch this show, and this video has gotten close to another 1 million views on YouTube. There’s a lot of people looking to become famous singers that would kill for the opportunity that he had. If he would’ve used his moment to slay like a Whitney Houston song, he would’ve gotten his name out so quick. Instead of him not being mentioned in the title to this video, if he would’ve killed it in stage, the title to this video would’ve been something like “random audience members blows audience away with voice on the James Corden Late Late Show.”

                                                                                        I used to work for AGT from season 10-13 as a talent searcher. My job was to view the video auditions people would send in to try to get on the show. If you sent a video in and didn’t make it on the show because of me, I’m sorry haha. I would also scan the internet, mostly YouTube and Vines, to look for talented people. If you were talented, I would try to get you to come on the show. A lot of people wouldn’t want to go on the show because they didn’t think they would win, or because they already had a decent following. The main thing I would tell them is that if they do go on the show, they would get exposed to millions of people that don’t know they exist. For some of the people that did go on, even though they didn’t win, they would still send me emails thanking me because it helped their career. Someone saw them and liked them and a few ended up getting signed to a professional label, and even for the ones that didn’t, the exposure still helped them.

                                                                                        All you need is one big moment, and then all it takes is for ONE person with a lot of power to like you and it will forever change you life. These record producers are always looking for the next best thing. They want someone with a cool story, so if Nick would’ve been great, somebody would’ve noticed because it would’ve been all over the internet, and he most likely would be signed by now. You know Ellen would’ve had him on her show. Haha.

                                                                                        I see a lot of people saying that he sucks, but the good thing for Nick is that he can still be a successful songwriter even if he really isn’t s good singer.
