    Apparently, it's fine. They've already put one contestant into the battle rounds who tried out last year and they've told several contestants they should come back next time. I vote Jayar tries out again just so he can tell us :sekret: stuff about Adam. and Blake.

    Yes. The judge told me as much. I was on the last day of auditions.

    They didn't talk with us at that point. It was all very clinical. Had I made it past sing #2, then I would have had a 'call back', which is where I suspect the backstory might come in. I am going to give it one more shot next year, and then call it a day. I know now more of what I need to do, so perhaps I will get further into the process. I just want to lick, I mean MEET Adam.

    Nigerian guy was really good. This girl may or may not sing well, but she is annoying. If I were CeeLo, I'd be very afraid. I think she will hurt him.

    Nicole had really great control. I'm going to hate the battle rounds; There are some really good singers.

    "organic bull" :rofl:

    I don't like it when a judge hit the button after only 1-2 notes. I don't know how you can determine the singer's ability so quick like that.

    I'm tired of all the sob stories also. Ugh.

    :lol: @ the judges telling the ex boy band singer to work on his singing.

    Cee Lo has met this year's Erin Martin. Really? She's Japan's Lady Gaga? :rolleyes: I did appreciate the editing on her, those cuts back as she blabbed on about her amazing celebrity were awesome. I say "Go" you say "HOME".

    I didn't like hip-hop girl either. Her voice wasn't all that good. And I didn't really like the voices of the mom/dau duo or the guy from Nigeria. Maybe they wanted them for cannon fodder. I liked the white reggae singer & the last woman who did Hallelujah.

    Yeah, it was kind of funny when Adam turned around after two seconds for the Colorado boy in the baseball cap and said that he could tell that this guy was a student of reggae. (While the Jamaican woman who grew up on reggae supposedly just didn't understand it. :lol:)

    I didn't think the boy band dude was bad at all. I thought he sang better than any of those girls in the collage of female pop singers they showed getting chosen.

    I didn't think Nigerian guy was anything special. I can't see him lasting.

    Thank you, Nicole, for understanding you can sing powerfully without screeching. That last note was so amazing and beautiful. She connected to the lyrics and used the music to enhance it. That song can so easily go very, very wrong.

    :swoon: :swoon: :swoon: I'm preparing my power-voting finger right now.

    I don't get the hip hop girl. AT ALL. But I didn't understand the hoopla over Julia Simms either and I ended up being really pissed off when she didn't win, so we'll see what he can do.

    OMG. Da. Mo. was crazy. Fortunately, she can sing better than the Egyptian Warrior Princess. Unfortunately, I think he'll keep her around too long.

    Nicole was my favorite of the night, but I didn't think this was the best night. I wish they weren't having over sixty people make it.

    If Adam hadn't made it in the music industry, he would have had a very successful career as a car salesman. He is so good. Blake was selling organic B.S. :lol:

    the tone of this show is so much more positive than the xfactor and the judges are nicer and they have genuine chemistry. i like the talent here (still pretty average IMO) better than xfactor, so i'll stick to this.

    but i don't think either will either get the talent that turn out for idol, the last several winners notwithstanding ;)

    ITA about Nicole. I rewinded that part a few times to hear her sing it over and over. I really want to download her singing that song in it's entirety!

    Do-Ma was a clear plant for Cee-Lo. She appealed to his vanity, singing a song he wrote (which I didn't actually know he did until they mentioned it). There was no way the other 3 coaches were turning their chair for THAT voice.

    Christina's team is really strong right now. She's not playing around.

    I :lol: when Adam admitted that "duos confuse" him. ITA!

    As has been said; some of these people are (necessary) "cannon fodder".

    They need LOTS of cannon fodder with so many on each team this season.

    Christina always seems to end up with a super strong team, but it falls apart somewhere between the battle and live rounds. Maybe it's her inability to make cuts, or stacking the team too much, or not being able to pick a favorite to throw votes towards; I don't know. Blake and Adam are very good at finding talent but also being able to play the game and get the singers they want to the finals. Cee-Lo...well, he always gets the interesting ones. And sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't!

    :lol: I especially liked how the other judges got more and more glad they didn't turn their chair around while she was talking :lol:

    I missed Tuesday night, but there aren't many memorable performers from Monday and Wednesday. And I HATE the sob stories!

    Lots of negotiating between the judges before turning their chairs around this season. Blake especially seems unwilling to turn his chair if others aren't (unless it's a country singer). As a strategy that keeps him from being stuck with someone like Dumbo, who only got 1 judge, but it makes him look indecisive and not that invested in the singers. which is weird, because he's done a great job with singers on his team who are far outside of his genre.

    The bird is a nice touch, but I miss Purrfect :cat:

    The singers are really secondary to me. :shuffle: I watch because of the interplay between the coaches, the strategy they use and the opportunities to get to hear them sing. They are never negative or mean to a singer (even if they fight like children among themselves) and always have good useful feedback even for those they don't turn around for. I never would have thought the blend of personalities of the four coaches would be so entertaining. I laugh out loud at something every episode. Oh, and I watch because Adam and Blake are :smokin: and Xtina is a goddess and CeeLo is a brilliant songwriter and producer and has a pink bird. And you never know what he's going to wear when he sings.

    I recognize that this evil love child of Audrey Hepburn and Adelle has talent and can sing, but it's not a style of singing I particularly enjoy.

    She looks like someone they'd use as bait on To Catch on Predator in a futuristic 60s world.

    He also picked a very bad song. He should have tried to show he can do something else.
