Nick Boddington - Very high voice. Skilled. Smooth. Good.

Josh Holiday - Cattle farm. Original song. Skilled. Not bad.

10 more girls.

Melinda Ademi - Beat by Thia Megia last time. Purple thighs. Good enough.

Aubrey Cleland - Pretty. Good, but thin. Looks good, though.

Rachel Hale - Smiley is back. Okay.

Breanna Steer - Not distinctive enough.

Janelle Aurthur - Kind of blah, just sat there. Lady Antebellum. No wonder. Hillary Scott is an Idol reject.

Groups up next.

Groups picked by producers. Something I've been suggesting for years, ending the fake drama of wandering contestants.

List of 20 songs available.

But producers seem to have picked some groups for the sake of comedy. And hey, instant drama. Clap, clap, clap.

First group:
Nick Boddington
Manthenee Treco
Matheus Fernandes (shortman)
Gabe Brown (big rocker)
All yes.

Next group:
Johnny Keyser - forgets lyrics, yes anyway.
Kareem Clark - no.
Other two yes.

Next group:
Curtis Finch, Jr. (mean guy)
Charlie Askew (misfit)
Other guy
All yes.

Next group:
Micah Johnson
Marvin Calderon
David Willis
Other guy
All yes.

Next group:
Zach Birnbaum
Nate Tao
Cortez Shaw
Elijah Liu
All yes.

Epidemic of lost lyrics:
Bad group.
Bad group - two through.
Bad group - all four through (incl turban man).

This shows the advantage of knowing how to speak in tongues.

Bad group:
Jason Jones
Dan Wood
Jessie Lawrence
Other guy
No to all.

Acapella group:
Devan Jones - yes.
Devin Valez - yes.
Adrian - yes.

Even with producer-picked groups, groups still accomplish nothing in terms of finding the next American Idol. They're just an idiotic waste of time.
