I like your theory. This seems like a better format with separate competitions on separate nights. Still, I agree with some users that this attempt to redo last season really discredits Just Sam. Plus, it's sending a message to the current Top 24 that it won't even matter if they win - if the show does not like the outcome, they can plan a redo next season.

The Second Chance has everything to do with last year being wrecked by the pandemic and you know it.

 

I agree that this is highly unorthodox and probably unfair (weren't most analysts predicting an Arthur Gunn win last year? I'm amazed he's not in the ineligible group), but way back when COVID first happened I feel like we all felt that the semifinalists should've been invited no questions asked, like even if they would've aged out.

Yeah, the pandemic is probably more responsible for this Second Chance twist than a desire to discredit Just Sam.

Unpopular opinion: The last person I want to come back is Makayla

 

How many times can they keeping bringing her back?  She was already eliminated by the voters, then the judges brought her back as a wildcard only to get voted off the next week.  And she has experience, she competed on America's Got Talent.

Another thing I hate with this twist is they gonna do big cuts again, like 3/4 eliminations every week

 

I miss the time when only 1 gets cut and contestants are given chances for redemption. Like Haley Reinhart would be eliminated at top 12 round with this new rule

Thankfully there are two performance shows a week this season so hopefully the cuts won’t be as steep every round.

At least Louis and Makayla would be leaving on a high note. ^_^

I already know I don't need to hear Arthur covering Iris in my life, and yet he's probably going to be the one that advances regardless.

Yup, Arthur's getting it lol

 

Makayla's song choice is a big big song, I have a confidence she'll pull it off though, so excited! ❤️

To be honest, if we excluded Arthur (because he was the runner-up), then I would not feel that bad about one of the others returning. They didn't get that much exposure, it would not be too unfair.

This way, it will just be Arthur's return lol
