I found the Season 2 DVD set for ten bucks and decided to buy it. I binge watched it. I remember the show was good, but I didn't remember it being THAT good!

If a kid is the daughter of a famous singer and she enters and wins a singing competition at her school, would her win be considered unfair because she grew up with the resources and encouragement that let her develop a better singing ability?
