The talent of this years show is just over the top. I think that all of them are great and deserve record deals.
As far as format I still like the format of season 1. I liked those judges the best (especially since all of them are from some part of the music industry).
Usually by now I have a favorite, but this year, I just can't decide. So at least I have narrowed it down to 4, and like I said above I think they are all great but for my tastes here are my favorites;
1/2. Chris Young/Matt Mason
3. Melanie Torres
4. Kristen McNamara
5. Jarrod Ashley
6. Casey Rivers
7. Nicole Jambone
with that said, who I think will go next week: Kristen McNamara (unfortunatly)
