As I understand it, most of the Carnival ships are now doing the Carnival "Legends" show instead of a talent show. This involves picking several passengers who are involved in karaoke, (the other passengers actually vote on who gets to be in the Legends show). Then those picked get to be on the "big stage" in front of 2000 of their fellow passengers and perform with the live band, in costume, provided by the ship for this show. It's really a lot of fun, and quite an experience! The "Legends" are: Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Ricky Martin, James Brown, Madonna, Britney Spears, Garth Brooks, Elton John, Gloria Estefan, and Aretha Franklin. The music you will be singing is already picked for you, (you have no choice) and the key it's performed in is also set, but it's a tremendous amount of fun, and a great hit with the fellow passengers. (We got a standing "O" on the Valor)
Join in on the fun, and enjoy the ride!
On the Western Valor in May - they had folks audition during Karoke and they performed the last night of the cruise in the theatre with Valor Dancers - Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Tina Turner, Madonna, Brittany Spears, etc.
I'm not sure if that replaced what they used to do with the talent show - don't remember seeing that in the Capers -but I could be wrong.
From what I have read, the "Legends" show is replacing the Talent Show on many ships. Each ship decides what they will do.
When we were in Alaska in July (on the Spirit) is was the Talent Show. When we were on the Pride a few months ago, it was the Legends Show.
They will announce in the Capers which your ship does.
