    The girls were obviously nervous and not that well prepared, it showed.

    they made a comment about how they (girls) had a limited time to prepare, I wonder what was up with that?

    maybe scheduling around Randy and his crew?

    Wouldn't Randy waiting around for Idol to call? I doubt he's in a position to have Idol schedule around him.

    He's still got his hands in a lot of pots, plus I wouldn't be surprised if this mentoring gig was part of the deal that included his vacating his judge's seat.

    I assume the 13 chairs refer to the 13 finalists - the top 5 women, the top 5 men, and each judge's wild card.

    I was enjoying this season until Randy came back. I think this judging panel is great and I like the young talent. The only thing that could mess it up is too much Dawg and his words of wisdom.

    I like it that AI has an age limit and that this season is skewing even younger than normal. I'm much more of an AI fan than a Voice fan because AI gets the young, raw talent that has the potential to be great (Kelly, Carrie, J-Hud, etc) while the Voice seems to get the older industry rejects who are more polished but got dropped by their labels for a reason.

    I hated to see Keri Lynn Roche go home last week and I think she would have done well if she had a shot to go on. Her last performance was a little over the top, but she has a great voice and to me she just needed a little coaching on her performance. (Not from the Dawg, though.)

    Yeah, I did not watch a single mentoring section.

    I really like Harry's honesty so far. I like that he keeps reminding them that he won't be impressed by big notes simply to get applause or vocals runs just for the sake of adding a vocal run. He has a great sense of humor but he is seripous about the music. This is exactly what I kind of expected after he butted heads with the judges last year while he was an mentor.

    Harry had told one of the girls that she had picked the wrong song at one of the local auditions. So she goes and sings it again at the live performance last night. He called her on it again and he should have told her she isnt going anyplace if she can't follow good advice. When some one like Harry gives you advice you should follow it.

    I had the same problem with the songs. I got the impression somewhere that the music would be more current this year--no more Beatles. :( I see why they want to do that, but it makes the show less enjoyable for me.

    Bravo for Harry. I'm glad he called the girl out on the lyrics of the song she sang, and pointed out whether or not that's what she wanted people to think of her. I completely agree. A snappy hook and catchy melody wrapped around inappropriate lyric is still inappropriate lyric. It's refreshing for a star to point that out.

    In other news, I thought they were all terrible. Picking the best last night means nothing if you're forced to pick from that bunch.

    So anyone else notice that we are limited to 50 votes per voter per method this year?
    That's new.

    That's just a way to cast all 50 of your online votes for one contestant with one click.

    Neither my wife nor I have ever voted, but I just don't understand why anyone should have more than one vote regardless of voting method. I understand that would be hard to enforce, but if they can enforce a maximum of 50.......??

    Or is it just so Ryan can say: "30 million votes were cast" instead of "half a million votes were cast"?

    Did anyone supervote using the app? I'm wondering if I use it if it's going to post something stupid on my FB wall like "Brett just supervoted for XXXXXDX using the AI app". Yes, I know I can remove it afterwards if it did, but would much rather it post nothing at all.

    For the Guys, I like the first two last night the most. A couple of others were good but not great and a lot were forgettable or actually bad.

    I really like CJ. They did pick some really bad guys. The gay black chubby kid is horrible, terrible Karaoke and dancing.

    I liked a lot of them up until now. I honestly think once they get this far everything is almost too over-produced.

    Yeah, he needs to be gone.

    I like Caleb's unabashed, full-on rock personality. I am not sure how far it will go but I like it.
