Thanks. I might have to download it.
Darn I was rooting for the woman from the Bronx. Not great, but no worse than some other people who got picked.
I would have picked her for sure! She had such potential! Judges made a massive mistake.
Race car driver had a few bad notes, but overall he's been one of my faves so far. Xtina's girl sounded really flat in parts. I liked grad school guy well enough, but he probably shouldn't have quit school.
ETA: I was getting annoyed at too may teens and a general lack of diversity, but this woman is annoying. Maybe a parade of teens isn't so bad after all.
Do they have a fan blowing on just Xtina? her hair is always blowing when they show her.
I so misinterpreted that...
Wow, 40 year old white guy was amazing! Definitely one of the best auditions, if not the best audition I have heard this season.
So did I.
Oops, I can see why you'd read it that way. I was just so distracted with the fact she was the only one who had her hair moving in the wind.
If you're talking about the guy who sang the Al Green song, he was my fav too. I was glad he went with Cee-lo.
Anyone watching this tonight?
Not a fan of Disney girl making it. If you walk away from a record deal, you shouldn't be on the show. However, Dez will be eye candy for the tween block.
The guy singing "Forget You" just looked like a plant. But, they were right, no one can sing a Cee Lo song.
The music teacher, Susanna, reminded me of Juliet from last year.
The one belting out Adele should have gone with Christina. Blake's gonna need a rope and spurs with that one. Good thing he likes them feisty.
I only caught the last few. If that Disney girl is only 21, I will eat my iPad.
I thought Adele was a terrible choice for the final singer, so I'm glad it worked out for her.
i'm glad dez is still very pretty
Eh. First girl OK. She should never, ever attempt to dance. Ever. She should sit there and just sing.
OMG. He and Kent from SYTYCD so need to get together and raise dancing, singing pigs together and sweetsparky can teach them to ice dance!
Uh... North Carolina high voiced boy... no... just no...
Xtina has the prettiest eyes, even with all the glitter makeup.
Charlie is all kinds of pretty... now does he have the voice to go along with it?... but wowza... yummy
charlie is dreary
I'm voting for Charlie just becauses he's I think he was really nervous, but he's pretty.
His voice is kinda meh, but he's so pretty.
They hit their buzzers because they heard the girls screaming. They knew they had a hottie who would make the girlies pick up the phone. "Vibrato" and "refined quality." Xtina is wisely keeping quiet.
Pretty boy is comfortable to watch, he isn't screaming each of the notes.
Amanda is elimination fodder for CeeLo. I wouldn't have turned my chair.
bus driver is better than a lot of people that went through
WTF?! Ugh, Yolanda was crazy good and they all passed on her? Big mistake!
That's a shame about cruise singer lady - she certainly sounded better than a number we've seen.
too bad she didn't go earlier when they were picking random singers. I wonder how they determine the order?
Cassedy must have sounded better in the studio. And she went with Blake? I'd have figured she'd go with Adam. curious.
From the way they were hyping this girl, I was expecting someone who didn't suck this much...
this girl struggled with the notes on the lower register but her higher notes were really good..
Yolanda was much better than this singer who missed a bunch of notes.
Cruise lady was definitely in my top five, but I think all of the judges have that sound already. I also think they can tell--or think they can--the age of the contestant.
I hear nothing special about Cassandra Pope. Right now, I feel like they're fighting over cannon fodder and not choosing people that will be competition for their favorites.
I liked Cassie. Bus driver wasn't bad, but they're full up on belters.
Cute guy. Liked his voice. I liked how he didn't do the James Massone thing and play to the screaming girls.
Christina's Egyptian girl is total cannon fodder.
I thought Yale boy looked better last season. His singing was decent, but it wasn't three buttons worthy though.
New Orleans Alexis sounded muffled. I think Ceelo makes odd choices sometimes.
Bring back the cat!
only his face is button worthy, the judges must have seen girls fainting and crying
I thought Charlie's dad is much hotter than he is. And he will be cannon fodder if they have battle rounds this year & won't get to the voting rounds where girls can keep him in the competition.
Smog boy is cuter and better than Boston Boy from last season, but I hope he doesn't stick around as long as Boston Boy did.
Although, I've got to say that I'm not liking the contestants this season as much as previous seasons. Though maybe it's just that the teams are so big that they're including a higher percentage of fodder.
I wish that each judge had a wild card pick and could choose one singer who didn't get a chair turned. There definitely are some singers who got passed over even though they were better than ones who got picked. (As Adam said, they were "dumb.") I think timing plays a bit of an arbitrary role in who gets picked.
I wonder if CeeLo is going to move on to a snake.
They brought some folks back in season 1. I can't remember if they did any last year.
They didn't last year, but Xtina said the other day that they will this year.
If I were a contestant, I would choose Blake as a coach simply because of the way he treats and promotes his singers.
I'd choose Blake or CeeLo for the industry contacts depending on the type of music I was interested in. I'd choose Christina if I needed technical help.
