    I agree, except for JLo and Ryan singing. I'm not sure which was worse.

    At least Ryan KNOWS he's a bad singer!

    When it was announced that Caleb would be singing with Kiss last week, I said at least ONE person can sing in that bunch - and I was right.

    Very pleased with the result. After 13 seasons, America agreed with me!

    No surprise that Caleb won last night, I think most people expected that he would. Man, some of those performances last night were really good and some were REALLY bad. You could tell they didn't have time to rehearse. I think Jena will end up doing fine in the long run.

    I will say that Paul sounded pretty weak last night. Gene pretty much sounded exactly like Gene always has. He was never a great singer, but I did not really hear a difference in his voice like I did Paul's.

    And I gotta say that Keith and Harry seemed liked their inner teenagers came out while watching the band. They seemed so happy.

    It still bothers me to see someone other then Peter or Ace in the makeup. But I will say when I say the original lineup during their reunion tour, Ace was at times an average guitar player at best. I know there were substance abuse issues, so at least the band sounds better with this current lineup, but I still think it is wrong for them to wear Ace and Peter's makeup.

    Harry and Keith are a couple years older then me, I think JLo is about my age. Anyway, as someone who was an adolescent in the 70's there really is an indescribable joy watching Kiss, even if they are not at the top of their game. Something about the makeup and the music transports you back to your youth. I remember listening to their albums, reading about them in magazines, watching them in phantom of the park, etc. And as a kid I was way to young to see them in concert at that point. But even though musically it was not even close to the best live concert I have attended, it way at the top of the list of most memorable and the best times I have had at a concert.

    You don't have to tell me. I was an official member of the Kiss Army and still have my Original Kiss Comic book.

    The single most entertaining part of the finale was watching Harry do the 'White Guy Shuffle.' Man, watching him try to dance was hilarious.

    I remember watching Kiss and the Phantom of the Park when it first aired on broadcast television...

    I was (and still am) a huge Kiss fan... I've been scrobbling to since 2006, and KISS is my #9 scrobbled group of all time... Quite a statement given that most of my KISS listening happened in the 70s/80s.

    No, I think that was the judges singing Fleetwood Mac pretending they were on The Voice failing miserably and Harry being painfully off key.

    Caleb wins no one cares. Usually this kind of thing I have to watch live to avoid being spoilered but not one mention anywhere the day after.

    Aloe Blacc didn't sound right either.

    JLo CAN sing, just not very well. She's competent enough, and...when coupled with her dancing ability and the overall "entertainment value", one can see why she's been able to sustain a career a lot longer than anyone expected.

    Personally, I thought her "True Colors" was very passable and quite good (for her)

    Madonna can't really sing either and look at the career she's had....

    Jennifer is not a great singer. That is true. She was not truly awful on True Colors but her biggest problem was trying to mimic Cyndi Lauper too much.

    I was surprised to see that Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest are about the same height. He looked much taller to me when he was heavier.

    I stood next to Randy at an Adam Lambert concert in LA- he seemed tiny to me, not much higher than my shoulder (I'm 5'10").
    Of course it didn't help much that he was dressed like a leprechaun.

    He claims to be 5' 8" but I think he's fudging a little. ;)

    Here's the early news for Season 14:

    First, all three judges, plus Ryan, will be back.

    The "you can come back unless you were in the Top 10 or on Tour" rule they introduced in Season 12 is back as well, which means the first three finalists eliminated last season - Kristen O'Connor, Emily Piriz, and Ben Briley - can return if they want (unless, for whatever reason, they sing at any of the Tour shows, or have made any sort of recording deal).

    One significant change that almost certainly won't be mentioned on the air; the "first round" auditions will be one day in each city, instead of having to register on one day and then return one or two days later to sing. While this makes it easier on some people, as they don't have to find somewhere to stay in the city or make multiple trips, there is now an increased chance of somebody registering but being turned away without singing because they ran out of time (although there is a rule that says they can take people "out of line" to audition if they run late).
