    I haven't gotten around to posting any additional favorites, but ehh...

    I've thoroughly enjoyed Keith Urban. While her snarky attitude around Mariah has gotten on my nerves, I've found myself agreeing with Nicki on several things recently, and have heard from others the same thing.

    I like Mariah alright, but I don't think she's contributed as much.

    Randy's given me the most WTH :)eek2:) moments this season.

    Uh... yeah. That's always been the point of the show.

    I know. That's why I'm no longer a fan and won't be rooting for another loser, no matter how talented he/she is. It's a given that the teenyboppers' "flavor of the month" will get the nod.

    Oh, and I agree with you on Randy. He's the dinosaur that won't go away.

    It's kind of interesting to me that Usher joined the panel after bad-mouthing AI a few years back. I like the man, but the dude that helped bring the world Justin Bieber shouldn't throw stones.

    I really hope that Christina changes her mind and that Shakira is given a lot of money to stay.

    The Voice needs a success. I think Cassadee stands a decent chance of giving that to them. She's managed to pick up both a Pop/Rock following, but a Country following as well.

    I really hope that both Amanda/Trevin, and some of the others manage to get some music out.

    To each their own...

    I like Randy, and I'm glad he's still there, but he's left me shaking my head multiple times this season.

    I'll withhold my opinion on that until I see what Shakira brings to the table.

    I really hope Christina follows through with her comment to Trevin that she would like to take him on tour. Hope she includes Amanda, too.

    No comment on Cassadee.

    Randy is too inconsistent. And the "dawg" thing is getting old.

    It's possible that I might not like her as a judge... it's happened before. I expected to like Christina on "The Voice" and Demi on "The X Factor", and I expected to HATE Britney on "The X Factor" and Nicki on "American Idol". Sometimes, I'm surprised...

    However... and this is a rare event, but my opinion of her is summed up amazingly well by Maruuk's statement quoted below.

    No issues with "dawg" here...

    I have no problem with Randy, but I don't understand some of his choices this year.

    Ditto.

    I respect Maruuk's opinions, but for the moment, I'll still reserve mine.

    So far a couple ladies I like, Kree Harrison and Angela Miller who was amazingly good with her original song "You Set Me Free" .

    A couple of guys are good, but the talent is so lopsided this year toward the girls side.

    Angela Miller definitely came out of nowhere tonight to position herself a front runner. Until her, I was convinced it was going to be a female Country singer winner this year... now I'm not sure. It'll be interesting to see if she can keep up the momentum she gained with that song.

    I agree the ladies have most of the talent.

    A couple of the women are amazing--way ahead of anything in recent seasons.

    Personally I could not understand a single word Zoanette sang last night. I don't care how big a voice you have if I cannot even understand you.

    Oh well... let's see how long she lasts.

    Zoanette sang Hircle of ight last night.

    I presume most people liked here since 65% of their instant poll agreed with the judges. She was much better than her Star Spangled Banner rendition that should have sent her packing long ago, but there were so many better people last night that got cut to let her continue.

    I don't think American Idol did itself any favors with this move ....

    They let the zany performer go through at the same time they keep emphasizing that it's a singing competition.

    Looks like they're trying to have it both ways.

    I have to watch it to keep peace in the family, but I'm not really paying attention to it. Instead, I'll just count the times Nicky touches her wig.

    Compared to past seasons, the talent this year is mediocre. And this is on both sides.

    Actually, at the end of AI last night, AFTER the judges picks were named, the instant poll showed:

    #IdolAgree: 30%
    #IdolDisagree: 70%



    I was entertained by Zoanette last night, but I certainly don't feel that she should have advanced.

    I also was considerably surprised they let Breanna through, who in my mind, did a poor job of the song outside of the last note. I'll give Keith a little slack since he stated that he's never heard the song before, but when Jazmine Sullivan sings the song, you believe it. I believed it when Amber Riley ("Glee") sang it, but Breanna left me bored.

    I personally liked Juliana Chahayed and Rachel Hale. I could have seen them cutting Juliana due to her age and going with the also talented Jett Hermano though.



    Here's what I think though. I think it may have all been strategic.

    Tribune's guide data on DirecTV stated the guys were to perform last night instead of the girls, so who knows if the following data is correct, but the guide data is saying that the guys will perform next Tuesday night for America's vote, and then the girls will perform Wednesday, and the TOP 10 will be announced next Thursday.

    Since they're doing things differently, I don't know if it will truly be 10, or if the judges will save some ala previous years and make it 13. I also don't know if they will do the usual 5 guys and 5 girls, or if, because the talent is so stacked on the girls side this year, if they will simply let the 10 with the best votes go forward.

    So... with more deep and fast cuts to be made, my thinking is that the judges have sent some less talented people through, so that other talented individuals will be able to come back next year when they have a better chance. ;)
