Good Talent Show Ideas
A musical performance is a possible talent show idea. (lonesome cowboy eighteen image by Paul Moore from Fotolia.com)

While it might be a talent to be able to burp the Pledge of Allegiance, this is not traditionally the type of skill that will draw applause and score points at a talent show. Good talent show ideas consist of routines that judge and audiences can relate to and assess based on preconceived notions. Excelling in a universally recognised talent in avenues like music, comedy and dance will go over well at a talent show.

Music

Most people can clap or attempt to sing along to a song, but only so many can get up on stage and perform music. Music-related skills are good talent show ideas because many people enjoy hearing music and marvel at people who can sing and play. A music-related talent could be anything from playing a piece on the piano, performing a capella or playing a rock song with a band. Musical performers at a talent show can perform traditional and/or pop songs that people will recognise or consider performing their own songs to show off a songwriting talent as well.

Comedy

While a talent show can be a serious display of talents, it should also be a fun and enjoyable experience for the audience and performers, and there's nothing like a laugh to lighten the mood. A comedic act is a good talent show idea for people who possess a good sense of humour and the ability to get up on stage and make people laugh. Stand-up comedy is a good idea for a sole performer. A group of performers might put together a funny skit.

Dance

It's hard for a performer to communicate with an audience if he's standing there motionless, making a dance-related routine a good talent show idea. Dancing is an incredible skill that requires intense control of the body, something that will really wow an audience. A dancer can't hide behind an amplifier, baton or magical hat, making this talent a cut above the rest. There are many styles of dance, making the possibilities of dance-related performances at a talent show immense. A solo performer might perform a ballet routine, while a group of dancers might perform a hip-hop influenced act.
