I have watched this show from the very beginning, and have enjoyed the heck out of it. It has talented young people singing and dancing, which is the main reason I love to watch "Glee". I don't often comment, because I don't get Oxygen on my cable tier, and after waiting until the following Thursday to view it... well, there isn't much of anything for me to say that hasn't been already said. Obviously, I do read the spoilers and know what I'm going to see before I see it.
I agree with all that Maybaybee said above. Alex annoys the pure heck out of me in all ways but one -- when he opens his mouth, beautiful sound comes out. I hope he does not win, and I especially don't want him to appear on "Glee" for 7 weeks or more! I'd be fine with any of the remaining three, but I do think Hannah and especially Marissa should have lasted way longer, and Alex should have gone way sooner.
