    You should have put spoilers around all the reveals.

    it was aired on wednesday night, once it is shown on tv it isnt a spoiler anymore. aceon 6 didnt include anyone that wasnt shown on tv as moving forward.

    This may be worth an exception to the regular spoiler policy because the show never aired on the west coast and will not air here until next week. I don't care personally, but can see how someone from the west coast who wants to remain spoiler free might be frustrated at having to stay away from this thread for close to a week. So perhaps we might put the partial reveal in spoilers until the episode re-airs.

    I thought spoilers were not working yet...

    Weird. You can read what you type in as a spoiler and get spoiled and then when you move your mouse over the spoiler text, it turns white and THEN it is spoiled (covered in hidden black box).

    Good to hear about the west coast airing because I got nothing new. Just a repeat of the Under 25's and the groups doing their final auditions. So it was weird the next day to see yahoo.com had a clip of one of singers being eliminated - when from what I saw...nobody had been eliminated.

    They will be showing the full episode that was partially aired on the east coast and not aired on the west coast on this upcoming TUESDAY, which means it will air opposite The Voice and Dancing with the Stars.

    Then, because of baseball, the schedule will get really messed up. The first live episode will be Thursday, Nov. 1. The second live episode will be on Sunday, Nov. 4.

    Fox also is going to intersperse repeats of audition shows in the middle of all of that, so it is really going to confuse viewers about the process. That isn't going to help ratings.

    Looks like a "feature" in that it's not active until you've passed it.

    I'm kind of shocked that Jillian Jensen didn't get through. She got a lot of air time in the audition process and in boot camp. My only guess is that they plan to bring her back as a wildcard?

    On a different note, I LOVE Willie Jones. :lol:

    I would have rather Jillian got thru versus CeeCee. Gawd I hate her. I may end up voting on the live shows just to try to get her voted out. Don't care if she can sing well or not, I can't stand her attitude.

    I'm smelling producer manipulation OR a deliberate decision to insure Jennell makes it to the final few shows.

    I think Tara Simon who is in the over 25 group is much more annoying than CeeCee, and I'm glad LA did not put her thru the live shows.

    I'm not on the west coast but I didn't get the Weds night show. I have my DVR set to record anytime it is shown & it didn't record anything so I didn't realize that some people got an extra show.

    I'm getting where I can't stand Demi Lavato - on the show this week that revealed the young adults & groups, she was having way too much fun dragging it out & torturing people. She hasn't shown me one thing that qualifies her as a legitimate coach/judge with anything useful to say. Except that apparently everyone is "special".

    Oh I hated her too. But luckily LA spared me having to deal with 2 "can't stand 'dem beyotchs" for me. :lol:

    Who else watched tonight? Leading up to tonight's show there were a lot of acts that I liked but I wasn't entertained by very many people tonight. In fact I can't even remember most people that well.

    LA's over 25's: I liked David (the adopted guy) & Tate, the C&W singer. Vino was awful & Jason (who I previously liked) came off as a buffoon. Simon was spot on about him - bad outfit, bad choreography, bad song choice.

    Groups: I completely love Lyric 145 but didn't love the song choice. However, IMO they are ready right now to make records. I didn't really like Emblem 3 before but they were great tonight. The girl group was pretty bad but that might have been because they sang that horrible Taylor Swift song about never getting back together :shudder: And the sister group leaves me cold - they are pretty girls but I think only one of them has what it takes. I don't know their names but it was the girl who sang 1st.

    Britney's teens: I like Diamond's voice the least of the 4 of them but I thought she was the only one with a good song choice & good staging. I hated Willie's song, his look, & his staging. Neither Beatrice or Carly Rose were allowed to shine - Britney chose awful songs & staging for them & I thought they both looked bad. B's hair had those crimps in it that were popular in the 80's & I hated Carly's outfit esp the knee socks.

    Demi's young adults: Paige looked fabulous in the fluff plus her costume & staging was probably the best of the night. The only thing I didn't like was her white lips. They dyed Jennel's hair really dark & straightened it...it was ok & her outfit was good except too long. I would have put her in shorts with that long fringed vest. Demi suggested that CC bleach her hair the same boring color that all no-talent Hollywood starlets have, & her outfit and make-up were extremely unflattering. Plus her vocals were pretty bad. I know there was one more in this group - I think it was a guy but apparently he is completely forgettable.

    LA Reid & Demi Lovato are insufferable as judges & mentors. LA may be a talented manager, I don't know, but he is useless on this show. And so unprofessional. He trashed one of Simon's groups just because Simon critiqued Jason rather harshly. (Simon was spot on.) And Demi is so full of herself. Britney isn't the best judges I've ever seen but at least she is sweet & pretty down to earth & isn't having a love affair with herself.

    most of the vocals are overproduced. you cant hear the contestant over the 9 trillion backup singers.

    britney's pilgrim collar was an interesting choice.

    I thought this first live was so awkward. There are many good singers this year but the song choices, the production and the style were horrible tonight. Really, what they (the mentors) were thinking of?

    Britney Spears was specially bad as a mentor. When I saw what Carly Rose Sonenclar was wearing the first thought that came to my mind was "Hit me baby one more time" :scream:. That Flo Rida song was an awful choice for her! Still, even with the poor choice of music and staging, the girl is a star and she did good. But she can do so much better than this. Best voice in competition, IMHO.

    Am I the only one who thought the sound quality was terrible?! Especially those smoke cannons ... they were louder than the singer! I could barely hear the singers over the special effects and just overall noise. Is that the sound technicians or the production team? Someone needs to go back to training, whoever it was. That was terrible.

    I liked the Emblem 3 and Willie Jones best. I thought Willie was great! Maybe a little more spark since it was such a party song, but I loved him. And yea I kinda do agree with Simon about too many dancers, etc., but again, Willie sang a party song! I thought it all went well.

    And someone please tell me how "1432" equals "I Love You Too"????? :confused:

    And can we please please PLEASE fire Khole Kardashian before tomorrow nights show!! She was borderline rude several times I thought. Pushing Demi to answer who was the best in the girl group? Totally understand her not wanting to name names (as Simon didn't either and he said the same thing!) ... although it was probably more of she didn't know her name. :lol: But it was just mean that Khole kept pushing her to come up with a name. Why didn't she harass Simon that way? He said the same thing. Mario can totally carry this show by himself. There is no need for Khole.

    I watched the first hour. This is the first time I've watched this season. The singing was bad overall and they tried to cover it up with elaborate production, but the judges were horrible. There is zero chemistry between them, the attempts at humor were forced, the snipping at the contestants is old, and Khloe Kardashian was ridiculous. I'll just stay with the Voice where the focus is on the singers actually being able to sing and the mentor interaction always makes me laugh.

    Production was terrible. Sound was terrible. Camera work was terrible. The talent may be there, but you couldn't hear it or see it. I'm going to delete this from my DVR and just check in here to see how Carly, Beatrice and David fare.

    I can't get over how awful the production was. :yikes: There wasn't a single act that wasn't overwhelmed by the sound, smoke, dancers etc. The music choices were a hot mess(not that you could hear anything) and the judges were completely useless in providing feedback. Between Demi's makeovers and Britney's overproduced numbers, I feel sorry for the singers. Add in Khloe Kardashian and you have what can only be described as a trainwreck of a show. :eek:

    ITA with all of you. This was so bad. Just bad. Overproduced, crappy flailing choreography, terrible sound quality, awful song choices, age inappropriate for the 13 year old girls, ridiculous makeovers, fugly styling, cheesy host scripts, a talentless Kardashian, Mario Lopez can't get a word in with Khloe's babbling, the usual stupid bickering amongst the judges. Completely buried any talent that might be there -- and there is some there.

    Delete and back to the Voice.

    it is a shame because many of them sang well up until this point, i wonder how many articulate people were passed over to hire that loud girl.

    also, having 2 hosts just added to the whole cluttered, overdone atmosphere. why have 1 host when you can have 2? why not have 900 backup singers and 40 dancers? why not dress a girl like the inside of a horse chestnut rolled in glitter?

    I figurered out that was each word's number of letters: I (one) LOVE (four) YOU (three) too/to (typical teen spelling of too) :rolleyes: And it's still a stupid name. But they won't have that name much longer. I don't see these girls staying together after tonight.

    wow, britney digs up a second pilgrim shirt

    demi's hair is sort of haphazardly up in case she wants to wash her face during the show

    loud girl host is overbearing, it's like being stalked by a freight train
