List Rules Vote for the best talent shows on TV, based on quality of winners and entertainment value.

The best talent shows on TV can expose the world to hidden talent and give people new careers. For example, Susan Boyle became an international sensation after her appearance on Britain's Got Talent. But not all talent shows are created equal, as the vast majority of winners quickly disappear back into obscurity. Remember Justin Guarini? But which TV talent shows actually produce quality superstars? But producing great winners isn't the only metric. The show has to be entertaining as well!

These are the best talent shows on TV, ranked from #1 down, as voted by fans. The winners on these shows have gone on to have successful careers instead of being relegate to the same level as the/sguy from the/scollege undergrad meme./sThis list of the greatest talent show shows also includes information about these reality contestants, who are famous for a little more than just being pretty.

TV talent shows--judging skills in singing, dancing, and even clothes decoration--have been a staple of television for years, so there's often debate about what the most entertaining talent show show of all time is. Don't let your favorite talent show television programs in history get to the bottom of the list--be sure to vote them up so they have the chance to reach the top spot. The list of talent television shows below also includes information like the program's cast, creator and premiere date when available.

Examples of shows on this list include The Voice and RuPaul's Drag Race.
