    This is when I really need DVR. We watch The Biggest Loser, Scrubs, and American Idol.

    Well I do not watch Biggest Loser enough to want to record it and I do not watch scrubs. Dad said he would record American Idol for me tomorrow night since I will be @ the college and not getting home in time to watch it.

    It was great! Better than other seasons, I thought. I loved the 16 year old girl with the dark hair who was in the first half.

    I didn't care for bikini girl and the one that sang "Let's hear it for the Boys." That's the one they said had personality and was making people dance on the floor. Both of them sang terrible. Then other people they were more critical about.

    I kind of felt like bikini girl was a producer plant. And I thought it was lame that the new judge tried to out sing her - it was a bit immature considering she's probably 20 years older than the girl.

    I loved Scott (?), the blind guy. He seems so genuine and talented. I did laugh at Ryan going for a high five and then realizing "oh yeah, he can't see my hand." Smooth, Seacrest!

    I missed the blind guy but I saw him in the preview. Did they put
    him through to the next round? I havn't seen any people who really stand out yet.

    yes, he made it through. They saved him for last. I can't wait to hear him with his piano and singing.

    I liked the young 16 yr old girl who sang "Put your records on" by Corrine Bailey Rae (sp?) I think she sang it better than CBR.

    I have no idea who the new judge is. I know her name and I guess she's a singer but is she in a group? I don't recongnize her.

    I don't think she is a singer-she's a songwriter.

    I don't care for her that much. Unnecessary, imo. Simon hates her, according to Entertainment Tonight.

    i thought that was immature as well! Not a great first impression- but she seems nice other than that. I am sure its hard comming in this late in the game.

    Oh, that was hysterical. Ryan is such an idiot.

    Yeah, that was the 16 year-old girl that I was impressed with, too, SP.

    Kara is a songwriter in the UK and I thought she sang her own songs. She has quite a few hit records over there. I thought she added something interesting to the show - I'm over the silly Simon vs. Paula nonsense.

    My favorite so far is the guy whose wife recently passed away. He was really great.

    I like the new judge! I didn't think I would; but I think she adds a good dynamic to the show. (But it was immature when she tried to outsing that girl last night..)

    **wiping the spit off of my moniter....

    :rofl:

    She was SO annoying.

    I haven't seen all of tonight's episode since I "caught up" to the commercials, so I'll just wait until later to watch it. I have no patience for commercials anymore. :blush: I did see Jason Castro's brother-- wonder how far he'll go.

    I liked the guy whose wife died also. He was so soulful...loved him! I CAN'T BELIEVE that they let the guy through who sang the Chris Brown song...wearing the black jacket, can't remember his name. He was terrible.

    Does anyone else think they are being extra nice this season? 25+ people through in 1 town??

    Yes, I think they are being nicer--I wonder if it has anything to do with the Hollywood round? They can really be mean and really start choppping people there--shcok value--high ratings in February.

    the guy in the black jacket was awful!!!!!!

    What I found ironic last night was how the judges were telling people they didn't "dress to impress"...then I thought back to the bikini clad girl from Tuesday night and wondered how they would classify her get up? Would that be "lack of dressing to impress"? LOL

    A few folks last night really stuck out for me, of course, I haven't the slightest clue what their names are yet...but I come Hollywood week, I think many of them will be standouts.

    I was thinking it was just because they were showing more good auditions than bad ones but 25 does seem like a lot!

    He was ridiculous. I could not believe they let him in. DH said that he begged his way in. I also like the guy who lost his wife. I am glad that he decided to go on with the audition.

    Up until I read your post, I thought I was the only other human who saw Ryan offer a high five to the blind guy! Duh!!!! He is great but I think he's on auto pilot most days..he has sooo many jobs! LOL

    I went to go check my e-mail and missed the blind guy. My husband told me about it and I almost didn't believe him that Ryan did that LOL

    I know they used to make that final cut at 24 and they are raising it to 36 so maybe that is why. I did notice they aren't spending as much time on the really bad ones. At least it seems that way. It seems as though they are making montages of them.

    I can't either! I mean he seemed nice and the beginning was pretty good but the middle was bad.

    I think the other reason they are letting so many through is because of the Hollywood round, like somebody else said. A preview showed them working in groups of 4 or 5 so I wonder if they will eliminate whole groups or what?
