    Very cool! It seems like it would be a good role for her. Hope it is a success.

    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.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I only saw the last half hour - for the most part my ears were bleeding.

    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.

    She's in the Top 20. I think she is one of those contestants where the producers show the crazy stuff and withhold a genuinely good performance. I suspect she can SANG, meaning she seems to be a well trained gospel singer. Of course, we have no evidence, it's just a gut feeling.

    Either that or they think crazy = viewers.

    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.

    Even when she's acting a fool you can hear that she has a good, strong voice. I'm mildly curious to see what she'll do in a live show, because that kind of nonsense won't play as well in that setting. Anyway, she got me wondering, how far did William Hung get in the competition?

    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.

    I think they want a female to win every eighth season or so, so many talented men were cut.

    Yeah, I think it is very obvious the producers are desperate for a female winner so they are trying to swing the balance in favor of the females this year. I'm not sure how much control the judges actually have considering this. I would personally like to see a female winner but it is too bad that has to be at the expense of an entertaining show (if all the male contestants end up being mediocre.)

    William Hung didn't make to the live shows.

    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.

    Lots of talented guys are left. I will be voting for Nick & Charlie for sure. I like Jimmy Smith too. I just hope that Curtis Finch gets voted off quickly. He's a real piece of work.
