I like so many of them at this point. I'm sure favorites will emerge, but I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch this time. I will say that since this isn't exactly a "best of" competition in the traditional sense, I think we'll all likely be disappointed with some eliminations. I think some are better singers than others, but that's not what it's all about. After all. Corey Monteith is far from the best singer on Glee, but he's still special.
I wonder if Ryan Murphy will be more involved this season. He did come to the final casting, which Robert said they hadn't expected. Last season RM commented that, had he seen more of Marissa in the actual competition rather than just the "sing for your life" elimination performance, he would have kept her.
Speaking of Marissa, I felt bad for her sister when, after she auditioned for the judges, one of them said something about her being VERY different from Marissa......and they obviously didn't mean it in a good way.
