I just got a glimpse, but thought she looked different....maybe not. I only recognized her because of her voice.

I'm not interested in seeing it though. I was cringing during the promo. I don't know what was worse, some of the kids' singing, or the fact that the judges felt like they had to belittle and berate them until they cried.

This may be one of the most painful things I've ever seen. I don't feel the judges were overly harsh, these people (whom I have respect for just for coming out to audition, I don't think I could) should be told the straight sh**. Not everyone can be a star.

It seemed rather scripted, though...as if the comments were rehearsed.

my favorite part was

the beauty contestant taking a slide under the table running to thank the judges, had to hurt the ego

I agree with disc, definitely some type of manipulation going on. Gotta love some of Simon's comments though .

Only watched the first 30 minutes until Mole 2 came on. Some of them might have tested OK if they didn't pick some dumbass current hit that doesn't have any singing in it.

I think they mentioned that they brought over the British judge just for his rather rude comments. Dunno what they hell some of those people were thinking when they disagreed with the judges.

"You have no talent"
"Your wrong"

Umm...you did just sing and only hit the right note whenever the song happened to use a note you were using. You don't have talent.

I'm sure many of them were told by friends and family they could sing and were really good. But those friends and family just didn't want to hurt their feelings.

I do think they put in the harsh comments on purpose - though they were right I watched the beginning of Popstars where they were picking out people - it was interesting. This isn't too bad.

This was awesome, I think my favorite was the guy that incorporated answering his cell phone into his rap.

That show was great!! To be fair, when the judges like someone, they certainly praised them.

I watched it last night and got a pretty good chuckle out of it. Some of those auditioning were pretty terrible. Funny enough, sometimes the worse they were, the more attitude they had about how great they were and how the judges "thought they were all that."

My favorite moment was:

spoiler....














When the guy started singing "American Pie" and couldn't remember the 2nd line. Then the British judge says, "Ironically enough, the next line is 'I can still remember....'"
