Simon was rad. Brutally honest (and truthful), and he thought of the wittiest insults Now that he's gone and J Ho has taken his place, there's no point in me watching. I did watch the first episode just to see Steven Tyler though

Oh, I can't STAND JLo, but the appeal of Steven Tyler was too strong not to watch.

I loved Simon.

I hate this season so far. They seem to be letting through really mediocre people if they are A) young B) have a good enough sob story or C) are cute looking. And then half the time after they do, they admit that there is no way they'll survive the next round. And they are too PC and nice... the blunt truth was what made this show funny. Now it's all "No stop, don't tell him he's no good, you can't do that!" (of course after saying this, steven then proceeded a few clips later to tell someone they can't sing, so go figure)

^ ITA with you... I actually miss Simon! I LOVE Steven Tyler but he seems to be super interested in pretty girls and basically fawns over them... it just seems to be less about the singing this season...

Steven Tyler and his weird comments have been cracking me up. And anyone else notice that they actually don't show that many auditions?

What was the deal with the apology for Steven's behavior?

I mean what did he do that was so egregious?
Profanity? Hitting on women?

Seriously?

You hired Steven Tyler for - and this is just a guess - being Steven Tyler. What did you expect? Snow White? If those parts of the footage bother somebody, edit them the fuck out, but don't put them in for the ratings, and then apologize for them.

It's like expecting JLo to act smart and look classy - not gonna happen.

(BTW, did you see her final outfit? White pumps, sequined black harem pants AND ruffles - with slicked back sleazy hair and red lips. Fuck.)

Did anyone catch the last audition last night? The guy with the small keyboard. He was incredible! I think I found my potential winner.

^Yes, I really liked him too.

I think Steven Tyler is funny and JLo is not as annoying as I thought she'd be, but I do miss Paula and Simon.

Thus far my favorites to reach the final four...

Scott Dangerfield


Lauren Alaina


Thia Meghia (I think her experience from her stint on America's Got Talent is going to really help her)

Adrienne Beasley

Have I lost my marbles?

Before you answer that... is it just me, or the huge majority of the contestants are marginal at best, but they get comments like "you are brilliant"?

That Stefano guy, who survived the accident - they told him he looked like a movie star and sounded wonderful. WTF??

The Tourette guy, again, I feel sory for all the hardship he endured, but a fabulous singer? I thought he sounded horrible, I could not wait for him to shut up.

I feel bad for some of these folks who will quit their jobs and think they hit the jackpot, when they have no chance of making it in the industry IMO, and this is a crappy year, so the bar is set pretty low.

Why am I watching again?

Oh yeah.... Steven

The tourette guy wasn't bad. His name is James Durbin. He kind of reminds me of Adam Lambert. Someone who is probably best suited for Broadway shows. I liked him. He wasn't as great as the judges made him out to be, but he was really good.

Who I love from the SF auditions is Julie Zorrilla, the girl who everyone was commenting on her shoes. She has the whole package. She can sing and she was beautiful.

I agree he reminded me of Adam too!

Some of the 15 year olds this year are amazeballs. I liked this one girl that they showed really briefly last night. I forget her name but she was a really light skinned black girl (I think) and was pretty tall and skinny. I really like her but they didn't show her during the hollywood week (only for a second to say she made it) they only showed her audition a week or 2 ago.

And Im sorry but I was SO glad when that really young southern girl did not make it through because she just grated on my last nerve. She was up there swaying around like she owned the joint. BYE.

Lauren Alaina is definitely top 10 material imo.

The guy with the crazy red hair is good too. I like him.

And that guy with the small keyboard did not disappoint in hollywood week either. Another top 10'er for me.

I loved Adam!! I though there was no comparison between the new guy and Adam. Just my opinion, of course.

I was SO glad she's out too! I never could stand her!

I have yet to see anyone that has just been amazin. There have been a few that were good, but its been very underwhelming thus far

So far the ones I have liked the best are the 2 exes. The guy has a really cool bluesy tone to his voice.

I just hope there are several great ones that they haven't shown. The only ones they have featured really are just all the sob stories.

I can't believe some of the people they let through...I'm sure it's b/c of drama and ratings, but still.

And seriously, sometimes you can add too many runs into a song. I wanted to mute a couple of them

that Ashley chick should have gotten the axe too. she sang like five words and spent the rest of the time whining, crying, and apologizing.

there were some really good ones in there too.

i agree. and the words she did sing didn't even sound good to me.

there are definitely a few who i really like. my favorite is the seth rogen look alike. i also like lauren alaina. there's a few more, but i don't remember their names.
