Wow - if Adam was Simon's replacement, that would be the nail in the coffin for me. I am not sure that he was a good mentor. He was honest, and that was great. But I'm not sure where to place the blame on what was probably the worst performance night this season. Were the song choices bad? Are the contestants just that bad, overall? Did Adam give good advice, but they didn't get it or didn't take it? Would a different mentor have been able to help the contestants more? I can't say for sure that Adam was not a good mentor, but the only compliment I could give him for what he did was that he called it as he saw it.
