Instant Star *A-
Instant Star is a great TV show for teenagers. The lead actors/actresses Alexz Johnson and Tim Rozon are great at portraying their characters, making you feel what they feel. This TV show is about 16 year old Jude (Alexz) who won a talent contest and is sky-rocketed into fame. Her producer Tommy Q (Tim) is 21 and has feelings toward Jude which he ignores knowing her age. Jude also likes Tommy but despite her attempts, he reminds her she's too young.

Another dilemma is that Jude tries hard to stay original, with original music, but finds it difficult as the music industry is trying to turn her into a more mainstream artist. Also, she has trouble with jealousy because people at her school and even her friends become sick of the constant hype about her.

This show deals with fame, teen crushes/relationships, friendships, and other emotions. Really wonderful show for ages 12-17 Rating: A- Definitely a must see.
