None of the ladies blew me away tonight. I liked Savannah Votion, who sang Goyte's "Someone That I Used To Know". She's the one who did all the harmonies for the group and her solo was really strong. But two of the other women in her group went through instead of her.
And I thought the "Who Snaps" group was AWFUL. They sang "Knock on Wood" and three of them went through except for Lauren. I think she was decent, but the rest were really bad. I thought a number of groups that the judges liked were not very good. Moreso in the second hour, so maybe the judges were getting desperate for anyone with a bit of talent, so their standards fell as the day went on.
Colour me displeased when a jumping bean comes out of nowhere and grabs the Olympic Gold Medal.
The solo round must be better, if "these are the strongest ladies we've ever had".
With a few exceptions, nobody I heard last night would make me believe that.
The only contestant that I feel strongly shouldn't have gone through was Jonetta, the Star Spangled Banner singer. And I am completely over Kaz after her antics. From her audition I thought she was quirky but it turns out she is just plain obnoxious.
I didnt' think anyone in Savannah's group should have gone through - yes she put the harmonies together but they were awful. And the girl who came back to ask why she was cut - I think she was out of that group where the one girl who wouldn't practice went through but the 3 others didn't. I would have cut the whole group but I agreed that one girl had the best voice. (But her days are numbered anyway - she's not tough enough for this contest.)
The two who impressed me the most so far are Candice Glover & Janelle Arthur. I want them to make the top 10. I liked Cristobel Clark & Rachel Hale a lot too. (The only reason I know the names is that I printed out the top 40 spoiler list two weeks ago.)

I'm over the girls with the exception of janelle and Candice. I want to see the judges handbook where it says loud = good.

I used to love the early auditions and this part. Now, I don't tune in at all until it gets to the call in part of the competition. I have even missed a whole season before this.
This is someone who used to watch all of it, and would go to the tour.
Looks like I am not the only one not watching this year. I just want to say I came in the room and turned on the t.v. at 8:00 last night. It was on the Fox channel. Whoever was up first, playing the piano and singing, should win the whole thing right now. Send everybody else home. Or send her home and let someone important snap her up right now to have a fantastic career. Holy Moley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To those of you not watching so far I want to say: you can't judge this season by previous seasons. I had gotten where I was on the fence about ever watching this show again & then I heard that Jlo & Steven was leaving so I thought I'd give this show one more change. Randy is just as unsufferable as ever but the other three are a huge improvement plus I like the changes this year. The audition rounds only took 3 weeks & Hollywood week only took 2. Vegas week is next week & then we're into the live rounds. At this point there are still some marginal singers that haven't been eliminated but there is a really good pool of excellent singers.
And Keith Urban is purty.
Who was the crazy lady who made up her "song" on the drums? Gee I hope she didn't get through...what a train wreck!

If she doesn't really sing; she won;t last long.
I was watching Lyndsey Parker's recap video yesterday & she adores Zonette. She thinks she's hugely entertaining & suggested a new reality show with Zonette & Kaz. (She's right - I would watch that.) I think Zonette probably has a good voice but all her antics hides any talent she may have. A live show might be entertaining but how would it come over on a record? If she makes the top 10 girls will she get votes? I'm not sure. VFTW will probably love her.
I just caught up on this Thursday's episode, and I must say, I was seriously disappointed with which 8 guys got cut. I was really warming up to this judging panel, but this week was a huge step backward, IMO.
As for the 8 guys, I didn't know who most of them were but most of the guys who are left are far from mediocre. All the guys who I thought were great are in the top 20. The fact that you don't agree with the 8 doesn't mean this judging panel was wrong & you were right.
