I think Jennifer is starting with the fake tears already. Isn’t is bad enough you are going to inflict one of your crappy songs on us later in the month, Jlo?? Spare us your fakery.

LOL!!

Is it this week she performs her latest lipsynched masterpiece?

“When we first started the Twitter and Facebook stuff, they said beware of political and religious tweets. Just because it can turn off voters or whatever.”

Sounds like the producers gave all the singers the same advice.

Colton doesn’t say he was singled out by the producers. He doesn't say that he (or anyone) was ordered not to post what they wanted.

And nothing in these articles says he was told to "tone down" his comments or not talk about Jesus.

Idol producers are lefties, but they're not stupid. They went out of their way last year to show Scotty McCreery kissing his cross after meeting Lady Gaga and saying "Lord, this is not my doing."

Neither Scotty or Lauren Alaina hid their faith, and neither did Idol. They know who their audience is.

Colton's overreacting.

I think the writer over-reacted too. It’s like they are trying to find a story to showcase how ‘weird’ the Christians are. Like you, I did not know Colton was a friend of Jesus. I thought he just liked skinny pants and had skunk hair:)

All true but it helps to have a good voice.

The gal that left last week sang a religious song, but her voice just couldn’t keep up. I had good hopes for her initially.

We make jokes all the time about AI people lurking on our thread for ideas and to see how the show is going, BUT wasn’t it about 3-4 years ago we started making jokes about one of the contestants wearing everything in the Kohl’s costume jewelry department at once? LMAO

I will be tardy tonight as I have to go to my HOA annual meeting. I have been scolded this month for having a dirty mailbox and dead palm froms on my trees. If we have not elected the new board by 8:30, I am out of there; I have important snarky business to take care of on this thread.

Shame on you, you know how dead fronds detract from the appraisal value of your home! /S

We once got a letter from the city because we had weeds in the flower bed. There weren’t even that many, I think someone mistook Coreopsis for dandelions. The home next door was door sale and we are pretty sure it was the realtor complaining because he was having a hard time unloading the property. Even now, the people there are just renting. Good luck tonight.

The shame! Somebody must have nothing in the world to do if they're inspecting mailbox cleanliness.

Hurry back here :)

Two mentors tonight.

One for fashion: Tommy Hilfiger.

And one for the song: P. Diddy.

Billy Joel is a no-show.

Belong to an HOA also. They can be a real pain if the wrong people gain control.

DeAndre Brackensick

His song choice is "Only The Good Die Young". Cheesy. Sounds like Aaron Neville singing Billy Joel.

Steven: At first I thought it was a little too happy, but isn't that what the world needs right now?

J-Lo: Laid-back vibe. Really showcased who you are. Good job.

Randy: Great way to start the show. I wasn't jumping up and down. Didn't wow me, but it was okaaaaaay.
