Ya know, I don't think the judging segments are meant to be dialogue with the cnotestants every week. Some nights, they don't even have time for full judges' comments, and, while I enjoy Crystal's singing very much (and even thought she was wonderful this week, unlike some), I'd prefer that she keep her commentary to herself. Her need to express her opinions, to the judges and in her tweets (maybe all of them are doing it, but hers are the only ones I [I]keep[I] seeing publicized), whether it is a defensive thing or the need to be right or whatever, is off-putting, even to a fan like me, and I don't think it is a flattering quality or wise for her to do it. One needs to be able to hear the opinions and criticisms of others and just accept them graciously sometimes....Originally Posted by Unklescott;3895304;
Then again, maybe it's just because I'm old, and my generation was raised to not talk basck.
