Well, I've been waiting for some discussion to begin, but I have seen none. Where you at, JayJay Dean? I thought you had promised us some commentary!
I'll break the ice by declaring my favorites (knowing full well that the people who are shown the most in the prelims are the people who are going out early):
1. Travis Hicks - I absolutely love this guy. Simon has criticized him to no end for his gray hair and odd look, but I love his voice and his musical choices. I would buy his rendition of "First Cut is the Deepest." I know I'm probably in a minority on this one.
2. The girl with the famous singer grandmother - Sorry I don't know her name, but she can reaaaally sing. I think she is going to be tremendous, maybe impossible to beat.

Hates:
1. The twins. Man, those guys are some pretentious over-singers.
2. The little crying cowboy guy.

I'm skipping it until they start the "viewer voting"-episodes.

1. I'm too busy at work right now and don't ever get home in time.
2. I'm tired quickly of meeting the families and hearing the stories and all that crap this season.

Once they start voting people through, I'll start doing the recaps again.

You won't have to worry about the twins for too much longer, even if they do advance in the competition, they've done some shit regarding false identity to get a car you can read up on at the Smoking Gun. Lots of variety this year. Kim McPhee could end up being one of the final 4. Looks like there will be a little better even mix of boys and girls so the top 24 won't be as lopsided.

Nope. My wife and I think he has a terrific voice and his Michael MacDonald look is unique.

Parris Bennet. I don't what she's doing on this show. Her aunt, grandmother (?) is in The Sounds of Blackness. She should already have a record deal.

The twins have already been outed as identity theft con artists. I think they are just showing them to illuminate what total jerks they are.

My favorites so far are Kellie Pickler and Taylor Hicks. Kellie has a really good voice, although I admit it's not the best one in the competition, but she really has a great sweet personality. As for Taylor, well in addition to being a good singer and very unique sound and look, I went to high school with him so I'm hoping he goes far.

My understanding is that FOX has already booted them from the show. When the final group is 'officially' announced, they will not be there.

For spoilers, you can easily find out who's made it by looking up the web addresses FOX has secured recently.

I don't know her name, but my early pick was the girl whose mother was the singing instructor. She was the best of the night, and in my opinion the best of the auditions. I don't mind the crying cowboy, but only because I know he's not going to be a factor. I also like the bald guy who's girlfriend was at the audition saying that this was his dream, and that he gave up on his dream to help her out (or something). I like Travis Hicks, but I don't think his singing is the greatest. It's good, but to me he's just got a like-able personality. Which is fine too.

And you had better believe that the twins are being set-up to look like jackasses (not that it'll take much). FOX found out about their past early (not just the identify theft, but the drunken disorderlies, indecent exposures, etc.) and has had plenty of time to edit these last few weeks together. The way that their ego is being portrayed, I have a feeling when they're cut Simon will come out looking like the greatest hero in the world.

Don't you just love how the twins were consoling other people saying that "you're too good for this" and stuff, even going so far as to give out contact numbers? I have to ask: If they actually HAD any contact numbers, why wouldn't they have just contacted those people and gotten deals themselves? Either way, their constant bitching about how horrible this show is because they disagree was brought up front and center last week. I'm sure that was done for a reason (and not just so people on AI could badmouth the show while on it).

Well, this is cool. Yahoo.com has the thingy on their front page that tells what everyone is searching for. On Saturday, the buzz was all about Idol and guess who was the contestant everyone is searching for. That's right: Taylor Hicks. It's good to know I'm not alone in being a fan.

Alright in case others haven't watched it yet I'll try not to spoil much, but two things about tonight:

1) They don't have to put any effort into making the twins look like jerks. None at all.

2) How can so many of these people, even some of those that advanced, not bother to learn the words to the damn song they are singing? I realize they only had one night. But they were put up in a hotel in hollywood. Last week I was in a hotel in the middle of nowhere Minnesota and it had Internet access. Wireless even. I seriously doubt that they wouldn't have it at the place they were staying or that they couldn't call someone who could find the lyrics for them. If you don't know, look it the hell up. Heck even people in the same group were singing lyrics different from each other. You have to be a god damned retard to screw this up if you put that much effort in to get here, but couldn't take five minutes to the lyrics down.

They may not be able to have internet access (I know that once the final 12 has been decided they have no outside contact unless it's supervised like a prison visit) but they are given lyrics to the songs before-hand.

The problem is that most groups were WAY more worried about everyone spinning at the same time or snapping their fingers in sync, that they didn't seem to be practicing just the songs.

Room Four swerve had me preemptively (and unnecessarily) cussing at the judges for cutting the Super Dorks.

I gotta say I like the 24 they picked, and think by the looks, if LIsa Tucker or Paris Bennett doesn't win it, it will be one of the men this year...we're overdue anyways. I like Kelli Pickler and all, but the more talented version of her won last year, named Carrie Underwood.

I'd say my top 6 (3 guys 3 girls) are...

Lisa Tucker, Paris Bennett, Kimberly McPhee (i think that's her name)

Chris Daughtry, Elliott Forget his last name, and Taylor Hicks, just because he sticks out like a sore thumb.

I know. I really hate this show. I wish I could stop watching it.

That sucks!
Well, perhaps I can take up the AI recap torch, with JayJayDean's blessing of course.
