Again, my issue is with the behavior of the judges who are adults, toward the contestants who, except for Elise, are just kids.
I think all of these young people have behaved incredibly well in spite of the rather cruel treatment by the judges. Look at the way Phillip responded to outright criticism tonight. Very accepting and appreciative and said they are "trying to help us not knock us down."
Jennifer's antics I feel succeeded in assisting Deandre out the door, and now they may have spoiled things for Jessica as well as the rest of them. Perhaps America feels that in the framework of the show, it is they, the audience, who makes the decisions and not the judges.
Again, I was just clarifying my position and not necessarily disagreeing with you. It is just difficult for me to join you on the side of the judges because I have lost any respect for them as human beings.
