Playing Devil's Advocate here....do we really know that is all she said? Or were things edited out due to time constraints or the producers wanting a particular spin on things? We really don't know.
I think Jennifer is doing a great job but there is more funny business going on behind the scenes than usual. We have reports from people in attendance that Jordan made a comment "I was handed that song" and yet we never saw that on the televised show. Jordan was severely handicapped by given a song that did not fit him, he didn't choose that song, and yet we never saw a hint or whisper of that.
That alone tells me that there is some game playing going on and there are other examples.
As far as this group goes, I'm finding myself fascinated with Pia. I think it's her hair and not really her voice though. She has the prettiest hair, I have naturally curly hair and I've always wanted hair like hers. She comes on and I no longer hear her, I just stare mesmerized at that shiny hair lol.
James - hated him during the auditions. However. He is beginning to change my mind. If he continues to tone it down and sing as beautifully as he did this week, I may just forgive his horrible behavior during audition week.
My issue with James is that he was despicable to children much younger than him. If Jordan and Clint are going to be universally vilified for being mean to Jaycee than James should be as well as Scotty because they were also horrible during auditions.
I completely agree! It drives me crazy on all these voting shows. However, what woman is strong enough this season to win? They say they want a woman winner and then they don't put the best through? Ashthon was not better than some of the girls dropped. Neither are many of the other females (Lauren? Naima - although I love her personality).
Regarding the bolded...the dismissal was Live. No chance to Edit, that's probably why Seacrest was left hanging.
