Holy kamoly, it was an interesting first night of AI!  I'm not a huge Mariah Carey fan, but she seems pretty normal next to Nikki Minaj, she's quite the character.  I was getting so annoyed with her English accent (as was Mariah) and all the cutesy nicknames she'd call the contestants.  I think Keith Urban isn't getting paid enough to sit between those two. 

Do you have any favorites from last night?  I missed some of it, but like the girl at the end with the family of foster kids, along with the blonde girl with the really soulful voice.

If that's their reasoning, they are going to turn more people off of the show because it's so irritating to watch.

I honestly think it is just time to end it. No matter who they get to judge, the whole concept has become boring.

Dang, I missed it! I'll have to do some catching up this weekend. I did see a news article this morning that said most of the fans were completely turned off by Nikki Minaj...

There's been some speculation that they chose the two women to create drama on the show, hoping to boost ratings. If that's the case, it's really sad, cause I think the focus should be about the contestants, not the judges.

Nikki Minaj just grates on my nerves. Maybe it's just me, but even when her words to a performer are nice, her body language just reeks of condescension. She's a total uber-diva and not in a good way! LOL

I only managed to catch a couple of acts, but I really liked Kez's voice. She was the kind of off the wall fire performer who sang Pinocchio and an original song she wrote. Her personality's a little out there, but her voice was just SO interesting!
