Reborn in the USA, was a 2003ITV reality TV show, in which ten former British pop acts were transported to the USA, where they were not known, in the hope of reviltalising their music career. Each week, the American audience voted for their favourite act, the two with the least amount of votes, would then face the vote from the British public, where the next week the act with the lowest amount of votes was eliminated from the contest and sent back to Britain. The series was presented by Davina McCall and the eventual winner was ex Spandau Ballet lead singer Tony Hadley.
List of Participants (in order of their final place)
Like a goldfish with a limited memory span and the restricted vocabulary of a pre-pubescent, the bottom line is that Davina just doesn't have the class or the charisma to front a show like this.
Whilst Reborn has had its moments, it's evident that the format needs a little tinkering with.
Reborn is good but not compulsive, enjoyable rather than entertaining and could have been - could still be so much more - better than it actually is. The basic idea is sound but from host onwards it seems to be a case of laziest common denominator.
Reborn In The USA, a UK TV show, has dug up ten pop stars from yesteryear (from the 60s to the 90s) and give them the chance of re-discovery and the chance of a second chance at fickle fame.
The ten are travelling around famously musical cities in the USA plying their wares to unsuspecting local audiences, to whom they will be unknowns.
