    So, 10 selected by the viewers and 2-3 wildcards. Has to be 3 so each judge gets one.

    I'm annoyed that they pretend it's live when it isn't.

    Clint sounds like a contender with Superstitious. He doesn't move well on the stage....maybe it's the shoes.

    Good grief he's shorter than Seacreast. He's a midget.

    Jordan may have bit off more than he could chew. The pitch was all over the place.

    Jordan also has to overcome looking like a jerk during Hollywood week.

    So far, I can't be bothered to vote for anybody. Even online.

    What was the name of the song? Don't know it.

    And I'm here for the first time this season, I wait for the winnowing process. So far none of the three guys has made me wince and leave the room.

    (The bar is low.)

    I think that, for both the men and the women, they reserved the last hour for the producers' favorites.

    Tim continues this evening's assault on intonation. Not good.

    ZOMG that Tim Halper was god-awful.

    I want to make babies with Jovanny Baretto. Never mind that that isn't technically possible. :p

    I've been hearing on the radio that this year's crop is one of the best ever. They don't sound so great so far, which makes me wonder if AI is doing their usual mess with the sound mix, backing vocals, ear mics, etc, to make the contestants they want look better, while maintaining an appearance of non-interference.

    eta- or they could be trying to hide how sucky the contestants are by distracting us with production problems. (said with a hair toss)

    ITA. When I saw what song he had chosen, it was a big WTF. I don't know what he was thinking. That wouldn't be a good song choice for anyone in this competition.

    Brett actually got better as the song went on, but it was kind of karaoke.

    So far, I'm really unimpressed with the guys.

    Brett :scream: Why are the judges having orgasms. His voice is so thin and screechy.

    :lol: What possessed him to choose that song? Tim and Brett have perfectly good voices, but their song choices are baffling.
