I won’t be recapping this season’s show as I probably won’t be watching it pass the auditions. I just find that there is something sadistic in the way the show exploits people’s pain when they are rejected. Don’t you just love the way that they pick a few of them to share their stories of how far they’ve come and then they ask them who they sound like? They make themselves vulnerable, cry and then are really excited to show Paula, Randy and Simon their talent and then we hear what they really sound like? And it’s just plain awful and funny that they sound absolutely nothing like what they said.
This show is rigged, obviously. Out of thousands that audition, why are the bad ones sent through unless the shows appeal is to exploit them? Make fools of them. It seems each season, the good ones are show less and less and the bad ones are on camera more. As I was watching this past season two hour premiere, there just wasn’t enthusiasm anymore for this show. I just hate how they exploit people who dream is to sing and then they are harshly rejected on camera. What was once a funny thing to watch just has become tiresome, I guess.
