Really liking the Top 20 so far. A little surprised about Genevieve but she’s not that good IMO. 
 

And I haven’t been keeping score but it seems like there’s more girls in the Top 20?

I just finished watching videos of all of the Top 20. Cyniah and Julia are standouts for the females and Nick and Franklin for the boys. I think the Top 20 is overall really consistent but ALL OF THE FEMALES ARE SOULFUL POP SINGERS BESIDES GRACE AND LAUREN.

I’m ready for a season full of powerhouses. S16 and S17 had a lot of singer-songwriter types. I love those contestants too but I’m ready for a vocal showdown like the good old days.

Where did you get videos for all of the Top 20? I only was able to find four of the Top 20 Top 40 Showcase Performances. Can you post them up there?

I seriously don't understand why there are four more girls in the Top 20 than guys, but I don't want it to be because the show has an agenda of trying to get a girl contestant to win like Season 12.

I think +/-   2 from an even split is fine if the girls are stronger this year. It’s not like we’re talking about a 15/5 split. Making it exactly 50/50 can be just as unfair if the talent doesn’t break down that way.

I really wasn’t feeling Faith but if she sang like this during Hollywood/Hawaii, I can see why she made the Top 20:

Nick Merico isnt going far now because of his attitude.

Because of what the judges said about his “attitude”. If they hadn’t made it the focus of their critique (per the script), no one would have said a word.

Devon Alexander (just as good looking and more talented) should have made the Top 20 over Nick.
