  1. Pretty decent schedule compared to what we got the last two seasons. Six weeks of finals, not bad.
  2. Me please! I’m excited to have another male contestant who sings alternative rock/pop music.
  3. Holy crap! That certainly throws a wrench in things. If someone is out, I hope it’s Nick, but I’d prefer a Top 21.
  4. Wow, lots of auditions this time. Excited to see Julia, Cyniah, and Jonny!
  5. I mean, he was a child actor and they’re always a bit arrogant. He was probably told to play up the cockiness. He didn’t really strike me as being too arrogant but he did drop out of the competition last year, so producers probably told the judges to lay into him.
  6. Lionel said that to Nick to get the point across that not everyone is going to be head over heels in love with him. Nick is probably used to constant praise and compliments.
  7. Arthur: Work Song by Hozier, All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, Forever Young by Bob Dylan Just Sam: Don’t Worry About A Thing by Stevie Wonder, I Look To You by Whitney Houston, Just Give Me A Reason by Pink Louis: Someone You Loved by Lewis Capaldi, Fall For You by Secondhand Serenade, Heroes by David Bowie, Yesterday by The Beatles, Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur Nick: This Town by Niall Horan, You Know I’m No Good by Amy Winehouse, Somewhere Only We Know by Keane
  8. I agree. I hope it replaces group round because that part of Hollywood Week got stale a long time ago, IMO.
  9. Arthur was my favorite by far this episode. Something about him is so intriguing. Nick is corny to me. I’m almost expecting him to break out “My Shiny Teeth and Me” from Fairly Oddparents. I don’t like his breathy vocals. I also agree that Just Sam is a bad stage name. Samantha Diaz sounds just fine.
  10. Devon Alexander (just as good looking and more talented) should have made the Top 20 over Nick.
  11. Didn’t see a thread for this so I thought I’d start one. The premiere of Season 18 earned a 1.5 demo rating and 8.1 million viewers, winning the night.
  12. I definitely would’ve preferred them over Aliana and Faith.
  13. She has a great voice but wasn’t 100% ready for the competition. She was overhyped by the judges. I’m sure she will be amazing in a few years.
  14. There will be more live shows this year but probably still mostly double eliminations.
  15. That felt a little manufactured but it was such a sweet audition. Just Sam is so well-spoken. Something about Idol now is that it always seems like the judges already know that they’re gonna put someone through. Rarely do any of the judges disagree with each other and I think that’s because the producers have given them a guideline of who to put through. It’s probably always been like that but at least you had Simon in the earlier years who would say no to certain people, like Chris Daughtry and Taylor Hicks.
  16. Wasn’t a fan at all. He overstayed his welcome big time. The Nikki McKibbin of S17.
  17. My queen from last season. So sad when she went home, although she had been going downhill. Losing her and Jeremiah back to back was hard.
  18. Gabby’s dad seems like pure trash.
  19. The most upsetting elimination for me since Pia’s robbery in 9th place. Jeremiah should have been in the Final 3, at least.
  20. I never really cared for him. His first audition was charming but I think he stayed in the competition a little too long.
  21. Yeah I could see that. I’m sure the show will try to have a dramatic moment where Jonny goes through and Margie doesn’t.
  22. Thank God. Those duets were the biggest waste of money ever.
  23. She shockingly got worse in S17. She had a nice voice but couldn’t emote at all.
