Making the Band’s “diva[s]” get a B+, Popstars “stiletto-heeled vamps” get a C.
Also in this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Ken Tucker reviews and grades the upcoming season of Making the Band (B+) and the just-concluded season of Popstars (C). He writes that while the members of Eden’s Crush were “made over into interchangeably skinny, skimpily dressed, stiletto-heeled vamps” and the show “dismally edited,” the five members of O-Town “throw delightful diva fits” throughout the continuation of the “docu-soap opera.” EW also talks to Eden’s Crush’s Ivette Sosa and interviews Jacob, Erik, and Trevor.
