It's always fun to see celebs outside their professional element, since it gives us a glimpse of their more human side, and SECRET TALENTS OF THE STARS doesn't disappoint in that regard. The celebrities are honest about their fear of failure and issues with self-confidence, and there's something endearing about watching accomplished entertainers and athletes like Clint Black and Sasha Cohen battle stage fright like, well, a normal person.

There's little outright competition among the stars, who seem to simply enjoy the experience, so as reality TV goes, this show is as family-friendly as they come. It may lack the glitz, polish, and suspense of American Idol or America's Got Talent, but it has a charm all its own. And aside from being fun, the show encourages families to talk about topics like self-esteem, handling criticism, and overcoming adversity.
