Also wanted to add that if this was a show to find ONE junior idol, I guarantee we would see better singing talent.
Since 19E decided to look for a group, they figured it'd be ok to let a few more marketable, less talented singers slide through the cracks i.e. Tori, Taylor, Jordan, Canyon.
IMO this concept has potential but they need to limit it to finding ONE junior idol and re-think the age limit. Some of these kids are way too young to be on reality TV, and you can't have 9 year old Tori competing with 14 year old Lucy. Have a contest to find one idol and make the age range something like 12-14, and you may have something there.
