I wonder how many people they bring in for the blind audition rounds? If, for instance, they call back 50 people who have been considered good enough to bring back, and the judges pick 32, I'm assuming once the 32nd is picked the rest just get jetisoned? I wonder if there's any attempt by the producers to stack the front with the best talent/hopefuls? I believe aside from the 12 that were chosen already, there were two or three that weren't chosen? I'd kind of hate to think that audition #47 is the 32nd person chosen, and #48 is knock-it-out-of-the-park talented! So did anybody think that "I'm too beautiful to sing and be judged fairly" was really all that pretty? Yes, attractive, but in my opinion, the Indian girl who didn't make it was MUCH prettier than her. There seemed to me to be something about her face that didn't make her classically beautiful or anything. Just kind of average. Probably just my viewpoint - beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? It's kind of refreshing to see the level of talent in these auditions, without the distraction of the train-wreck faction that is infused into the AI audition rounds. Aside from maybe the 54 year-old woman who was so surprised to get a callback. She seemed out of her league compared to the others.
