Ukraine's Got Talent - Duo Flame

It seems to be all over the known universe that televised dance contests are the new gold rush.
Gotta admit they are entertaining. (Though a bit too toe-curling when the judges hack down an unworthy competitor.)

It's particularly super-rich ore for those who came up with the concept first, because I believe every new company and country which wants to use the concept has to pay royalties.

I don't understand why this is something anyone would have to pay royalties to do. Sure, it's a great routine, being a fusion of cheerleading, gymnastics, ballet, and tango, but what makes it copyrightable? Is Duo Flame the name of the couple?

No, I mean the name and format of the TV show. "America has talent", "Britain Has Talent", "Ukraine Has Talent"... I guess at least 20 countries have their own version.

The same with all the song competitions and similar talent shows.

I guess they could make their own show, but it would have to be quite different not to get sued, and probably their are good perks to get part of the "... has Talent" family.
