An intimate exploration of how to become a well-rounded artist who’s grounded in their true self.

We review the Netflix reality series The Signing Season 1, which does not contain spoilers or reveal the winner. 

Many reality series have come out over the years, and most have been about vocal competitions. Sometimes it can get tiresome if there is no unique spin, but it’s all pretty much the same. In a way, the judges make the series, and how they work with vocalists does too.

Everyone with some talent wants to make it big in their field, and thankfully, reality shows have been the best way for many to get noticed before social media. So it’s hard to say which one is the easier road to take.

The Signing Season 1 Review

In the Netflix reality series The Signing, created by Lex Borrerro, a group of 12 contestants move into a mansion with only ten beds. To stay in the house and compete, they need to win over the judges while performing at Miami’s hottest clubs.

So this is different than other vocal reality series because Borerro wants his artists to connect with the people in a very loud and excitable environment. That’s where people can truly come out of their shells and surprise you. So it does have a unique spin that people can enjoy.

On top of that, tensions do rise because they all live in the house together. So it’s a mixture of high-level emotions with one another and about the competition itself.

Is The Signing good or bad?

The concept for The Signing works well because they have these contestants perform with a live crowd early on to see if they have a stage presence. It’s also a more intimate setting so that these artists can connect with the people around them. Having a large crowd isn’t everything, and this series shows the intimate moments between everyone.

The other reason it’s good is that these artists have to prove that they are strong songwriters and strong performers at the same time. Borerro makes it a point to have a balanced, well-rounded artist, and the judges do teach them what each contestant needs to work on.

Is The Signing Season 1 worth watching?

The Signing is worth watching because it adds another layer to their performances. The judges focus on different things and give them the advice they need. It’s like they really tailor their advice to each artist and genuinely help them. That’s what’s so different about this series versus other vocal competition series.

Sometimes as judges, they judge and don’t give constructive criticism, which doesn’t help them in the end. The intimate setting combined with a documentary style showing the backstory of these contestants sets this apart from other reality series.

It explores the different ways to become an artist and how to ground yourself in the person you are so the music flowing out of you is just an extension of who you are.

    This TV show is the scum of LATIN culture. Artists? who are artists? all the jury, one by one can be seen as people are who are not well educated in the arts. Its embarrassing to respresent our Latino Communities with this garbage, and call Iit ART. The Puerto Ricans can not even pronounce the L correctly, their Spanish is a shame for our gorgeous language, they destroy it. The music is a total tragic sample of what kids, now a days are learning. Art is not shown in schools, music, dance, perfuming and visual arts are complete nule in American schools, and this is call art?, kids watch this garbage and learn this horrendous vulgar genre? There are wonderful ( counted with one hand of fabulous rap and hip hop artists), but these groups are trained and exposed to real great genres of music such as classic, jazz, African, electronic, fabulous rock . etc. This show is a complete mediocrity, a real obscure poor education for kids in this era, and all is about money,power and nothing , ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with ART. I hope this is taken away from Netflix and other platforms. it teaches kids and all peoples a lie, a diversion and a real dark and empty whatever ( not Art). PRODUCERS MUST BE EMBARASSED, SHAME ON THIS CULTURE THAT IS ALL ABOUT TRASH.
