  1. Julia - New York State of Mind Jonny - Makin' Love Just Sam - Como La Flor, Rise Up Francisco - River Makayla - And I Am Telling You Lauren - What About Us
  2. That makes sense. Also, it's a lot harder to give a trainwreck performance in the comfort of your own home.
  3. Definitely, there's no way anyone could have gotten more than 2 stars on BnB with that cheesy arrangement and bad sound mixing. Kind of a shame when the rest of Julia's performances were solid or above average. I'm dead @ the current S18 average being better than seasons 1-7, 9, and 14-17 though.
  4. True, in fact this year they're all pretty much forgotten already. Except Arthur and Francisco, and that's only because of international fans. I thought after Top 20 night that the format wasn't too bad, some of the contestants still connected and were creative with their performances...but it's clear now that this format is dead. There's just no performance aspect, no excitement. It's top 5 tomorrow and there haven't even been any 5-star performances yet. Not sure if this or The Voice's "everyone's a lounge singer now" approach is worse, lol.
  5. Louis and Francisco are living proof that apparently every semi-attractive male who can sing passably and play three chords on an instrument is destined to be a superstar. The Makayla situation is laughable to me. She's clearly talented and has tools to succeed in the pop world, yet she's been criticized for her song choices since the beginning. Then the past week after scraping through she sings a country ballad in an obvious attempt to change things up and get more votes. It was simply solid and way less impressive than her previous performances, but at least she "tUgGed aT OuR hEArtsTrings!!1!" The worst part is that the judges, IDF, and the entire internet reward her for this by saying "good job!", even though it's totally disingenuous. It's getting a bit disturbing to see how Idol takes these artists who come in with a pretty solid idea of their identity, and then gaslights them over and over until they're voted out and left wondering who they even are anymore.
