He’s referring to the real life event he describes in “Yellow Brick Road” when he met Proof by handing him out a flyer for a talent show in his school gym. If Em had taken the “fuck a talent show” approach he wouldn’t have met his best friend Proof, one of the few people that could keep him stable and push him towards his dreams.
Em isn’t dissing talent shows here, he’s still imagining what would have happened if he had not performed in such shows. A career has to start somewhere.
