    How music talent hunt contest organizers can cut costs

    Nowadays every TV channel has at least one music talent hunt show where people's vocal chords slug it out. Some of contestants are really good, while as usual there's a fair share of rotten stuff. In fact these shows are so lucrative (primarily through sponsorship and revenue-sharing from the 'Vote for your favourite contestant' SMS polls) that Ffrequently you find instances of 2 or more such contests, each catering to a different genre or age-group.

    But the one thing that is common across all these shows is the fact that the judges never listen to the song by completely wearing the headphones given to them. Invariably they're only using one ear piece.

    So doesn't it make sense for the organizers of these contests to cut down their costs by only sourcing half the number of headphones and giving one ear piece to each judge? Of course, they'll need to ensure there are an even number of judges, otherwise one headphone is wasted.
