I am really liking the trio of judges this season. Even though I'm a fan of JLo and Steven, I wasn't sure how that particular combo would work out. Turns out that JLo isn't quite the diva the tabloids make her out to be and Steven is so not a hard-nosed rocker. He's a softy. They mesh well and I think they are bringing out a different side to Randy. We haven't heard his trademark phrases much this season (a thousand, million percent yes! or Dawg to name the two big ones). It's almost like he's taking it more seriously. And he doesn't have to be loud and obnoxious to get a word in edgewise or to get noticed. I never quite got why they chose him to be a judge but now? Now I get it.
I just think the three of them work well together and I can't wait until the competition actually begins. With the talent this year and the judges taking this seriously, I don't see how it could be anything but fabulous.
