    American Idol, anyone?

    …….Or did Scotty McCreary destroy what little love for this show that was left?

    Not interested until they get to the top 12, then I'll watch at least once to see if anybody is worth watching. I'm waiting for the Voice. I'd rather watch Adam, Xtina, Blake and CeeLo than AI.

    I'm watching it on tape delay, as I always do, so I can skip the ads. That usually means I can't play along in these threads, because I'm behind.

    Right now I'm up to the excited guy who's singing Jason Mraz badly.

    Oh I thought they might change up the judges. But IIRC, the judging was pretty good up until the live shows.

    Erica Nowak really looks like a tall, black-haired Tonya Harding.

    I thought so, too. The eyeliner didn't help.

    The last guy with the guitar was a very strong guitarist.

    Are AI episodes posted online to watch somewhere? I missed the first 15 minutes. Lots of good singers tonight, but I'll never remember their names. Even once they get the Top 12 I can't remember names until about the remaining 8 or so. But good gawd much better production value than the X Factor! So glad American Idol is back!!!

    By the way, I would like to give a message to a poster on this board, who I can't remember who it was so maybe they'll come in and claim it. Last season during the weeky AI threads, someone made a comment about how Steven Tyler reminded them of Janice Dickinson. To that poster I say .... I hate u! Every time I see Steven Tyler on the screen I remember that comment and start busting out laughing because sometimes it is so freaking true its scary!

    There were more capable singers than usual.
    I hope the trend continues; and that they refrain from showing too many "trainwrecks" along the way.

    The sadist in me loves watching the undertalented but clueless people get told by the judges that they aren't gonna get selected. . I mean, who has been blowing sunshine up some of these people's behinds? Maybe some are too young and maybe a bit nervous, and they fudge the audition, but some of them are truly bad. And I cannot believe that a loving friend or family member would not tell them that they cannot really sing.

    Unless, of course, it is all staged.

    Was channel-chasing last night and was mildly interested when I scanned by, but the show doesn't have the pull for me that it used to have. I may take the BigB08822 approach and tune in for top 12.

    That is what I am doing, except I do love Steven Tyler's antics.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I turned it on but paid basically no attention. The auditions we have seen for a decade now and they are always the same. The first awful singer they showed cracked me up, though, especially when they played the original of the song she was attempting to sing and then cut to her last few bars After that it really just became background noise as I worked on other stuff.

    I'll tune again once the live shows start. I like to form my own opinion of the contestants rather than what Nigel wants me to think about each of them.

    I'm taking a new approach to the auditions this season. I'm TiVoing, then just viewing anyone with good reviews on USAToday or rickey.org. From last night's show, it seems that I only need to view 5-10 minutes, total.
