London: Singer Kelly Clarkson, who won "American Idol" in 2002 believes TV talent shows encourage new talent.

"There`s no money in music now, so if an artist comes in and they don`t hit it right away then that`s it. So, there`s not really artist development in that," quoted her as saying.

"But with talent shows, whether it be `X-Factor`, `American Idol` or `Pop Idol` or `The Voice`, you`re learning from the judges, and the mentors and yourself every week, so I think it`s just another form of artist development, in a contemporary way," she said.
