    Haven't seen anything on the boards yet. I already know the top 24 and some I'm happy about and some I am so not happy about and some I don't think we've even seen on TV yet.

    Thoughts so far?? My favorite was this guy. Holy cow is he channeling my utmost favorite person in the universe, Dave Matthews, or what??

    I've been watching. I agree, that guy was good, so Dave Matthews like in his singing and guitar playing. He even sorta looks like Dave.

    Not yet. The auditions are usually pointless to watch, IMO.

    Haven't decided if I'll want to watch it during Hollywood week and beyond... honestly, I think I might be completely over the show.

    We wont start watching til it gets down to the finial 12 or so. I did catch some of this weeks and had to shut it off after listening to the blonde who taught music in grade school. She seemed to be such an air head and her signing wasnt that great.

    There are two audition shows next week and I don't know how long they'll go on before they get to Hollywood Week. I've been watching and am glad they've been one hour episodes rather than two. There are just so many people crossing our screen and they seem to announce at least 3-4 dozen or more going through from each audition.

    Hollywood Week is going to be a cluster mess if they try to show too much of what's going on. I've watched since around the third season and continue to watch out of habit, but these audition rounds are almost like drinking from a fire hose. I'm sure there are several that I like, but there are just as many more that (a) didn't make it to TV yet, other than maybe the jump-scream-"I'm going to Hollywood!" clips, or (b) I just don't really remember anything about.

    He does kinda look like him, especially a 20 year old Dave. I'm only watching the other auditions for the hell of it. I'm all about this guy. Although I'm not sure how America will relate to him. Throughout my DMB love affair I've noticed people either love or hate him/them.

    Weird. When I heard the first song he did the other night I was "meh" about him. Not sure why. But as soon as he got the guitar out and started I thought he was great. And I'm a huge DM fan so I'm sure that helps. Hope to see alot more of him and how he performs.

    I certainly hope he continues to play the guitar, I think that is his hook. But you are right some people get DMB and some don't, so he might not make it too far, we'll see.

    I agree that his signing was just ok, unique but just ok. The guitar almost sparks some energy into him and the real performer comes out.

    I caught one and a half episodes.
    I read somewhere that Jim Carrey's daughter auditioned. How did that go? Is she "going to Hollywood"?

    She is but honestly, she was just OK. She's got the nod because of her dad, IMO.

    Yeah I thought she was good but certainly nothing special nor unique at all.

    The weird thing is, like this kid seems to be, Dave is a lost soul without his guitar. Over the 20 years they've been touring and the 42 shows I've attended he always has his guitar. He'll hang it around his neck even when not playing it.

    Reports say she skipped the line and had an appointment to sing for the judges. Her little interview clip had her bemoaning the expectations everyone has because she is the child of a celebrity. Boo Hoo.
    It was cute when J-Lo asked her, "Do you remember me?, I was a Fly-Girl."

    We dropped Idol a couple of years ago but my wife still has some interest, especially in the last couple of months. I heard that Jim Carrey's daughter auditioned and got her gold ticket. They'll definitely keep her around for ratings but I hope she's good enough to stay there on merit.
