Nobody’s Idol is a musical parody that takes place on the set of a famous televised singing competition. The reality show boasts a line-up of afflicted people with a song in their heart. Not only do all the characters on this show have a problem, they’re also going to sing about it and then compete for the grandest prize of them all: a lifetime supply of fame. Nobody’s Idol explores, exaggerates and exacerbates the conflict between the Nobodies and Somebodies (the idols) of this world. Who gets to judge whom?
