Yes, I agree with you regarding the rejection/elimination hindering a child's progress and hitting their confidence. Like we saw today with Nitin. Constantly negative feedback can dim a child's morale.
@ Bold: That is another thing that has so many variables, some of which can be debatable. How much 'feedback' and criticism is the right amount according to a child's level?! Really varies from child to child. One reason for this that I feel is...because these kids are able to sing like old maestros at times,
one is inclined to think that their thought process is the same where they are able to comprehend complex things and hence the reason why they end up giving comments that are so technical...but the judges fail to understand that these technicalities are something that the children may not be able to pick up on instantly at the moment. If you notice carefully, children are usualy lost in their own world
that it sometimes takes them a split second to realize what was said, and when the comment finished and when they have to say their share of thank you. Just reflects on their innocence. Also, I feel that by getting into the technicalities this is their way of showing how well-informed the judges are in their field, because afterall that reflects on them as a singer and influences their rozi roti. But regardless of anything, all the judges respect all the children and give them love and that is what is more important.
