I only heard part of the Civic Federations proposal on the radio but they want to TAX Social Security benefits and STATE Retirement pensions. They're nuts. The people -- seniors -- won't go for it. I won't go for it. I would rather move out of Illinois than have more taxation on my pensions.

This isn't a very talented group. I stopped watching the show this week, because the contestants are karaoke at best. I think the judges were told to get the "younger" kids, not the seasoned "second chancers". Notice that most of these "kids" are younger than 22 yo. Before we got the 25-26 yo and they were seasoned.
Jennifer has been here before and she chose some good contestants from Haley to Joshua to Phillips. I cannot believe she agreed with this final bunch.

I totally agree with you. I stopped watching the show this week, because the contestants are karaoke at best. I think the judges were told to get the "younger" kids, not the seasoned "second chancers". Notice that most of these "kids" are younger than 22 yo. Before we got the 25-26 yo and they were seasoned.
I have to disagree. I think the audience, like, can't find one likable and talented enough singer to attach or invest in. One thing I notice is that the contestants are "younger"....in prev. seasons the singers were seasoned and older (Kris Allen, Elise, Naimi, Haley)....they had played bars and traveled and knew who they were and what type of artist they wanted to be. But these are kids and they come off as "kids". The only one I see who has potential is Majesty, but the audience likes the boys, so once again we will end up with a WGWG. And maybe that too is a problem, we already know what type of singer will win.

@ArchieSue None of them are wearing good wardrobe.

Finally! Majesty came out like a pro.
Right about now, I'm missing the "old" Simon. :) Are these kids dressing themselves or do they have a stylist? Because they need to step it up in the wardrobe dept.
@Rickey @ArchieSue I'm not excited about anyone so far, and this time in the show I at least can say, YEH that was good. They all seem so YOUNG and inexperienced. And the sound is too filtered.
I like "single ladies" :) play on words?
@krbcan Yep, it was a good performance....but is AI turning into Nashville Star?
@ArchieSue I think it's nerves for the first three. Plus, to me, they seem SO YOUNG. I remember the prev seasons and the singers seemed more mature.
At least Kristen is singing in tune, and she's pretty! The boyz will love her.
@ArchieSue She sounded out of tune to me. I expected her to start jumping up and down like Bruno does. :)
I'm not liking this performance or her voice. She looks like a really nerd teenage.
@ArchieSue He was just meh. You can find him in any country bar.
@JavisAnthonyPerez Neither do I. It looks like the Voice stage.
I listened to about 3 tunes, and pray that this NOT Pharrell's release, maybe somebody else? Bec. this sounds like sh**T, sorry, but there's not one "memorable" sing-along tune like Get Lucky and Happy. And I cannot understand what the concept is....and I so wanted to LIKE this CD. I'll stick with buying his singles.

I noticed that Jlo also felt that Rush Week was "rushed" as she kept commenting on how nervous the singers were.

@mloci You're kidding right? The boys need to be cleaned up and lose some weight. Having a good voice doesn't make you a "star"
