Agree with everything, except the last part (about Andrew).Originally Posted by pillbeam;3868033;This season is the best yet. There are several credible singers: crystal, mike, siobhan, casey, aron and the teen girl.
The Simon and Ryan "feud" is a joke. Simon and Ryan are great friends. The banter between them sounds as fake as the banter between Simon and Kara and the former banter between Simon and Paula.
At any rate, I think Ryan does a fantastic job on the show. He did seem interested in paying attention to Didi this season, but that could have been because she is so frickin' weepy. Part of Ryan's job is to make sure the contestants don't completely fall apart, especially duing the judging parts.
I love Tim-- not his singing-- his attitude. He is the ultimate positive thinker. He's going to enjoy his time on the show, no matter what. That makes a lot of sense to me. I think he won a lot of support with that answer.
I'm glad Andrew is staying. If he sticks to his folkier roots, he'll stay for a while longer.
