U.S. soul stars Boyz II Men have defended TV talent shows like American Idol - insisting such programmes have become an important part of the music industry. The format of reality TV shows has previously faced criticism for creating 'manufactured' artists - but the End Of The Road trio believe they would have been more successful if they had had a talent show to give them nationwide exposure. Bandmember Nathan Morris says, "I have heard people saying these shows are cheating music, but music has changed so much in the last 15 years. It moves so fast now. When we first had a record out, it would take you six months of touring to get it into every home in America and on the radio to promote it. "But with television shows like (British talent show) The X Factor, you get put into homes straight away and your song can be out so quickly. It's not the artists' fault. It's just the way of the business."
