that this season had the old format of the rounds of semi-finals where the girls and guys continued to perform separately until we had 6 and 6?

it would work so much better considering the folks in the top 24 this year. i fear we are really going to lose some great people tonight due to the format of the show.

Yeah, one performance really isn't fair to go off of. David Cook probably wouldn't have made the top 12 if he was judged on Happy Together.

Yeah, I think this is terrible. I don't know why they thought it was a good idea to bring it back again.

AND I miss the old semifinals stage/setup. It was smaller and everything was so much more intimate... once the finals started they moved to the big stage and then it really felt like the competition had begun. Now there's nothing to differentiate the semifinals from the finals. Like, I don't even remember the week of semifinals last year. It all blends together for me. haha.gif

Yeah me, definitely. I hate the thought that some of the very talented performers we saw tonight might miss out in making the top 13 due to their lack of exposure, not having developed a strong fanbase yet, etc. sad.gif

Yes. I would like the old format. But no, not with THAT top 24.

Come on, both shows sucked. There are some really talented people there? Yes. But overall the top 24 was VERY weak.

And they did that on purpose, it always is like that when they use this bloodbath format. The top 13 will be good, but the top 24 overall is always weak when they do the show in that system. They have to put a lot of fodder there to make their favorites go to the other rounds.

Lol someone else said this before. I don't understand how or why this could be the case at all. Does no one else remember the crap we had that year and honestly believe Cook's spot could've been taken by one of them?

Caleb winning is the last thing Idol needs? I think season 13 overall was the last thing Idol needed.

I definitely agree. This format stinks and it is most unjust because some were aired only two times for 15 seconds prior to live shows.

I agree, the new format isn't really fair. The semifinalists should get to perform three times like in the old days. It gives more of a chance for those who may not have been noticed and then have one bad night.

no. admittedly, this is the first time i've watch Idol at this point in the season- but i can't effing imagine this being any longer, good god. it's already torturously long-winded.

plus, more significantly, the huge majority of the contestants are boring and mediocre. i'm glad they're axing half of 'em. they need to go.

and keeping mediocre talent only gives The Voice more ammunition with their whole "we have stronger performers" campaign. it's embarrassing for Idol.

This exactly. The old format was great because after 3 performances we could pretty much say who was good enough to move on and who had room to grow, and who shouldn't make the top 12. But with this format..one off night and you're screwed. noexpression.gif
