    I typically turn it on and have it playing in the background while I browse here as I can usually zone out the back stories if not interested and listen to the performances while glancing up to see ones I like.

    That was exactly my reaction to him too. I HATED his rendition of 'Superstition.' I sat there the entire time saying to myself, "you do NOT change up an iconic song like that so much. It's completely unrecognizable. I hate it."

    Then he picked up his guitar and started singing 'Thriller.' I sat there the entire time saying to myself, "I love how he changed up that iconic song so much. It's completely unrecognizable, but I love it!"

    So, yeah-- I'm a huge hypocrite.

    Wen he started I actually told my wife I didn't like him at all. Then he started doing the DMBish performance and my wife just smiled and looked at me. She knows I am a huge fan and of course I had to change my opinion of him. :eek:

    I have zero interest in the auditions. My wife is interested so I watch, but really bored to tears.

    I've been watching but I think I'm going to pass the torch to the performance and results threads. Any nominations? I just watch too much TV as it is and kind have lost interest lately.

    I'm a bit dense at times, but it finally dawned on me why these audition rounds seem really uninteresting to me.

    The audition rounds were a blast when Simon was destroying people with his comments. A huge contrast and "a hundred million percent" better than Steven Tyler's dirty old man schtick.

    These rounds now are pretty much 'meh' and I watch them pretty much out of habit (as mentioned before) and to try to get a least a little familiar with some people before Hollywood Week and the weeding out takes place.

    This was one of the few moments where I hit rewind instead of fast forward.

    Where does one find this moment? What episode? I have them on the TiVo, but I don't normally start watching until they get close to the final 12.

    I'm watching... sorta.

    I'm only watching because of the Oprah's Next Chapter interview with Steven Tyler. He said something on there that caught my interest so I thought I would watch. I'm liking so far. I don't miss Simon or Paula at all.

    I admit I've been doing the FF thing through all the horrible train wrecks the producers insist on showing us.

    Phil Phillips made it! Looking forward to seeing & hearing some more DMB'esque music.

    I have to say I'm really impressed with the talent on this season. There are some really good talents on this show that are having to go home and not making the final 24. Unfortunately, what this means is that my personal expectations are very high.

    I'm happy the cowboy was sent packing. Jessica Sanchez is the best I've seen thus far.

    I just wish they wouldn't drag this final elimination... no way does it need to be 4 hours.

    I believe tonight's episode is only an hour. But I agree, it doesn't need to be 3 hours either.
