    And they open with that song by Phillip Phillips. Because we haven't heard it enough in the past year. Am I the only masochist here still watching this?

    That's what I usually do, and at this point, I think I'll do the same this time. 10 minutes in and the judges are already annoying me.

    I'll admit that I was looking forward to the possible Nicki/Mariah freakouts, but this is already tedious.

    I don't know why I keep watching, it's all gotten so predictable.

    I didn't realize that it was premiering tonight. Have they been advertising heavily?

    I feel about 100 years old and completely out of it, but who is the blonde judge?

    No more than usual as far as I can tell. I've seen/heard ads both on TV and the radio in the past few weeks but it hasn't been extreme.

    ETA: The two female judges are Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. I'm not watching at the moment, but either of them could be blonde on any given day.

    I know its early, but I'm getting the feeling that we are going to see a lot of Mariah clones this season.

    One-legged kid is waaay better at the Bon Jovi song, but he has a lot of weird vocal habits.


    *They didn't send him through. I'm mildly shocked.

    There was potential in the voice but he needs lessons not to do some weird things with the voice. Kinda surprised he didn't get through based on what I've seen in the past before get through.

    I watch, but I'm always a few days behind the broadcast, so I normally don't participate much in the thread. I don't want to spoil myself!

    I think that the only judge not playing a role is Keith Urban. I wanna know what Nikki is like when the public persona is stripped away

    Girl with the hearing loss is really good too! Mariah nailed it when she said tone is a gray area in the music business these days *Points fingers at Bieber and Swift*

    That final girl with the family who fosters and adopts all those kids... looks wise not voice reminded me a ton of Tamyra Gray, really looked a LOT like her. She had a nice voice but I'm not sure one to win.

    I will tune in after the audition rounds. That includes Hollywood. I used to tune in for Hollywood week but now it is even a joke. After they narrow it down from Hollywood I will watch.

    Indeed. As long as Sugar Mama keeps buying Nick new cars, I think he'll be staying for the long haul.

    I like Keith Urban, everyone else :blah:.

    Keith could not possibly have chosen a better route to popularity. :lol: Everyone's going to like him because he's not the other two.

    (I like him myself, but not enough to watch this trainwreck of a show! :scream: )

    I don't think Nicki and Mariah really care about finding any actual talent, as long as the camera is on them then they're fine. Keith is so down to earth and real, I actually think he wants to find someone with talent and see them succeed. Randy - meh.

    Randy must hate himself at this point. He ran out of things to say 10 years ago. He must get awfully bored.

    I swore I wasn't going to watch this. Then curiosity got the best of me...but that was satisfied within the first 20 minutes. The intro only evoked a high stream of snark from me as I adjusted my non-rose-colored Idol glasses. Within a half hour, I was bored to tears and switched to Big Bang Theory reruns.

    Randy was there? ;)

    I was kinda bored with tonight's show. I know most people hate the audition rounds, but I like them. But there was lot of boring nothingness tonight.

    I do feel sorry for poor Keith having to sit between the Divas for the auditions though. Although its funny watching his reactions.
