while I admit that my wife likes this whole never ending saga more than I do mostly because it does just seem never ending, once in a while I manage to pay attention and with this particular episode at least, it seems the goal of the judges was to blow smoke up the kazoos of the mediocre performances in order to needlessly bolster the performers confidence......and to criticize the excellent performances where no criticism was necessary or warranted.......a case in point would be the last performance by the rocker kid Durbin, i think his name is......randy Jackson who, bear in mind was just a bass player, never a front man........thought the presentation was somehow lacking in the beginning and i was just amazed at that assessment until it occurred to me that maybe Jackson simply doesn't understand how the song was meant to be presented.......when in reality if one compares it to the original recording of the song by the original artist, it was not only presented with the original structure (phrasing, i think they pros call it).....it was brilliant and pretty much flawless........apparently his other counterparts didn't agree with Jackson as well although i thought it should have been Tyler to point out that Jackson was full of crap......but i think Tyler becomes overwhelmed by his age occasionally when presented with a possible replacement for himself in the river that is rock and roll...he should have been more overtly supportive.......somehow the whole thing smells like a fixed boxing match to me based on how the judges seem to be react positively to mediocre performance and critically to great performances.
