Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

While the contestants seem to be having fun on stage, some are so bad that it's easy to laugh at them instead of with them, which makes MTV's Little Talent Show a little mean-spirited. And while the judges give constructive criticism for the most part, the cameras also catch them making faces as the contestants flail onstage. Parents should be sure to remind younger viewers that it's important to respect others and that it takes a lot of courage to chase a dream and perform in public.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
