    I'am 100% sure some of these singers are fixed into the show. After what i saw last night there is no way about 10 of those people could have made it past the first round in there home city and go before the AI judges, unless there holding audititions where you go before Simon and others and skip a first round thing. I wish they would clear up how the show works a bit.

    I think that the original screening process is just to make sure these people have good attitudes and aren't just going in there to kill Simon and them. I don't think they are letting these people go in based on their vocal talents, they are probably just making sure they are safe and to just get info on them, make sure they don't have a criminal record or something. Yea they have bouncers to do that job if someone gets out of control but they should only bounce people if necessary and if they can avoid it then great.

    I diden't even think of that. Did you see that one guy last night if anyone watched who had to be escorted out bu police/security. Man people take this way to seriously. Tons & tons of crying.

    Well if you were up ni the clouds like these people are and are trying to chase a dream and then get shot down by a couple of celebrities, how would you feel. I don't understand how they can possibly think they are good singers or why they try out but I understand why they cry.

    Some people just loose it and have to be escorted, like that one kid who threw the glass of water at Simon.

    Here is an example to back my theory, one episode last week there was this black kid who was the first one to audition but he showed no enthusiasm or care to be there. Those are another type of people they probably don't want in there to try out because that would be wasting Simon, Paula and the other guy's time or whatever.

    They put the bad people in there for ratings, there is no other reason. It also gives them a false sense of confidence, therefore increasing their disbelief when they go in front of the real panel and are told they suck.

    Those who are terrible singers are just put on tv to boost ratings. I must admit that I do find entertainment value in the show. The guy who dressed up as Winnie the Pooh and sang the Christopher Robin song the other day was hysterical. I also enjoyed watching Simon get doused with water. So the show does have its moments.

    Actually a girl in my choir talked to me about what the whole "screening process" is really about (what they don't tell you on the show). Apparently you do the initial try-outs, and there are about 10 people in each group let's say. Well the best two and the worst two will get chosen to go in front of Simon, Paula, etc. Yeah, I think that it's pretty stupid too, but apparently they get a lot of their ratings from watching those failures. And BTW, she didn't make it to the next round by one person.
    I don't feel like manually adding my Track Record, so I'm just going to tell you it's 228.

    I doubt the voting for the finalists is fixed. I think everything after the auditions was for real. My only complain right now is why the hell did scooter girl get sent home. I honestly thought she was one of the best. Some of them don't deserve to be there but they will get voted off soon enough. Everyone else, but scooter girl, got kicked off and deserved to be kicked off.

    I was shocked as well to see her get booted but WHAT they kept the stupid model guy. He will get votef off as well.

    Is it just me or are this years contestants not takeing this very serious. I think most of these people are just trying to get more than 15 min of fame.

    I didn't recognize scooter girl right away. When she sang on stage, I thought she really had a nice voice---one of the best. Only after someone (i think simon) mentioned the scooter did it click. I'm sad to see her go.

    Anyone who forgot his/her lines should have gotten the boot with no 2nd thought. The 2 brothers are worthless---they both should have gone home.

    I'm boycotting the rest of the show in honor of scooter girl.

    I'am still bitter over Frenchie from lst season. Who cares if she shoed here boobs. Look a Janet and she's still popular. I think she might have won if they diden't boot her off the show.

    I think the only reason they are keeping the brothers is because they are good-publicity wise. I mean look at it, two brothers (I think they are twins) who can sing great and one of their names is Jesus.

    Actually I think Frenchie was last year.

    I also couldn't believe they cut scooter girl, and kept that goofy model guy. He's not been taking it seriously at all. cut him!

    Yeah I didn't get why they cut her either. She was an awesome singer. If they want perfect people, then they shouldn't be looking for singers. lol They have just as much "drama" as anyone. lol

    I'm going to spam them with e-mails. I'm going to send about 100 emails to Fox about the cutting of Scooter Girl. I'll tell them all of my friends are now boycotting the show because they cut her. Won't do anything but I'll feel important :P

    You should. I'am sure you won't be the only one. I might send them an e-mail to. I remeber fox got thousands of hate mail when they cut frenchie. BGWFreak they cut her cause she had nude pics of here on the internet and diden't tell the producers about them. I guess they found them on there own or someone tiped them off.

    My friend is going to audition next year. He is one of the best guys singers I have ever heard. He canhit almost any note. I have seen many of these singers and I truly believe he can make it to at least the top 32. I am not just saying this because he is my friend, he can really sing. When he appears on the show next year I will tell you guys his name.
