    • I kinda take it as a reference, but I'll still judge for myself

It’s good to see it, but I honestly don’t remember all of it when the performances hit. Sometimes I like performances more than expected, while other times they can be disappointments. The sources are accurate a lot but once in a while I disagree with their comments (Ex: Shane Q, Levi)

Kind of sad that some people just take the source's opinion (particularly the "flopped") and run away with it. People used to say Denisha and Raine flopped like it was a fact even before a single blind audition aired.

Sources opinion vary. What could be impressive to a source may not be impressive to me or other members here, and what was bad for a source may be good in my opinion. Not to mention some sources are clearly biased. 

 

So I like to read them, but I´ll judge the performance myself. There have been a million instances where I´ve disagreed with them.

i remember sources mentioning that carter's ko didn't feel special, but it was one of the best performances that season, imo. 

More importantly, it won him the season. That´s definitely one example I keep coming back to when arguing that sources´s opinions aren´t really something that already defines how a contestant did.

The source was right.

Another one: I remember the source saying that Corey´s KO was meh, and while obviously some here might agree, as a whole it turned out to be one of IDF´s favorite KOs on a stacked round.

I listen to the sources and respect their feedback, but I try to judge things for myself.

 

As stated above, Carter’s KO is a good example of the sources not being 100% infallible, since it catapulted him into the finale (with Rainbow Connection being the icing on the cake to secure the win). On the other hand, full feedback in S19 and S20 did lead IDF to correctly deduce the KO montages + two of the short-clipped KOs (Kelsie and Connor), though I’d argue song choices made both the short-clips a likely possibility even if we’d known nothing beyond that about the performances before they aired.

 

In any case, source feedback is definitely valuable since it can give hints on who front-runners may be (see: Jim’s KO in S19 likely helping him into the top 2 and S20 feedback making it pretty clear who the final two would be), but it’s not a perfect prediction too either since there’s human bias involved - remember when IDF thought Corey’d be battles fodder but he ended up being one of the male snowflakes from season 20?

 

As long as people take the feedback at face value and acknowledge it’s opinions only, I see no harm in getting or publishing it; it’s the people who take it and run away with one snippet and blow things out of proportion that lead to issues (ie, Deion flopping in the battles being repeated up til the battle aired, to the point IDF deservedly  got called out on it by Deion himself).

I remember some people saying his Knockout was really good before the Knockout aired

I dug through, and this was Bk´s source:

 

Corey – Already Gone – three coaches stand (no Blake) but it was pretty meh

At least the user that posted that admitted that source might be partially wrong (I had a feeling it would be his best performance)

Yeah, I knew I was forgetting another example of someone being known as a "flop". I remember one particular mouse trying to convince everyone Victor's battle would be montaged bc of it.
