How To Become A Pop Star
If you want to become a pop star or a chart idol, then there are various approaches you can take.
One of the most popular remains that of what has always been the case - set up a band or join an existing one that you think has the ability and talent to go places, and then wait unless someone spots you and offers you that break.
If you are a vocalist, then it can be really hard to get a band to join that is good enough, so you might instead try talent shows.
Things like X-Factor and Britain's Got Talent have annual auditions and shows and if you really are good enough then there is a decent chance you will get spotted on these; ok lots of decent singers get through but generally if you are really good you should still stand out enough to get selected for the later rounds on these shows and that could kickstart your career.
