That's amazing about Shannon! Love that she's a volleyball player, comes from an athletic family, showed no nerves, & the screeching after Stephen's comment was hilarious! Oh, and I love that she sang Etta...RIP. :(
I'm watching it right now and can't believe they cut that kid who is homeless and was cut last year in the hollywood round. The one with a twin brother whose mom walked out on them. I loved him and thought he did great and then they cut him
Well, no one actually stood out above the crowd for me. I was listening in the den without looking at the tv and they all sounded the same, so it didn't matter to me who got to stay and who was booted off. The personal stories behind some of these contestants are truly heartbreaking, but it is, after all, a talent show, and life is life.
I think there are some quality singers this year, too. I didn't think much until their solos last week and several hit it out of the park. I wasn't too impressed with the group numbers with songs from the 50s and 60s, though. I wish that cowboy kid would go home...he's really annoying.
I'm actually not super super impressed with the talent this year, but it is still early. A lot of them don't come into their own until they get down to the top 12. To be honest, I feel like the show is kind of stale now... I only watch to see J Lo's hair, makeup, and clothes!
