  • Well in this episode, we got to meet all the contestants and watch them perform. And after all was said and done, we saw one get sent home.

    I just have to say that the tallent in this show, is entirley better then the talent in AI. And more intriguing. These people play,sing, harmonize, and jump around if need be. I thought the judging was a little off on some, but still entertaining. I loved every song performed, except one. When I watch AI I rarely like a song, if i do! i thought this episode was enjoyable to say the least, and i will be watching tonight! So if you missed the first episode, then be sure to check out this one, and the rest for that matter. You gotta see Pearl heart, and Third Town perform. thier harmonies are amazing. ... Oh yeah, and theres two little girls that rip too!=)

  • surprisingly good...

    I was surprised at the talent that they found for this season of the show. I already have favorites, and already have people I don't like after the first episode. I wished to see more of the audtitions, but oh well. I did like how they congested the part when they cut people. It gets really boring to watch that. American Idol takes a whole episode to do that while this show only took ten minutes. I liked that. I didn't like Billy Ray Cyrus as a host. He seemed really annoying and seemed like he was trying too hard. I really liked when John Rich and Jewel argued about pitch in this episode. That was funny. Anyways, this was a good start to the season. Taylor Swift is awesome!moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jewel: (about Coffey) What pitch issues? I wanna rewind the tape.
      John Rich: We just made a record together; you're slightly pitchy yourself.
      Jewel: You know what John Rich, if you could hit half of the notes I can hit, you can freakin' talk to me. (John laughs) My Lord, you have like one octave range and you're going to key off on me!

    • John Rich: (to Courtney of the group Pearl Heart) Are you afraid your sisters are going to beat you up if you rock too hard?

    • Billy Ray Cyrus: Your little girl looks like a star waiting to happen.
      Coffey: She's awesome; she's a tornado in jeans. Someone come help baby sit that thing; Lord have mercy!
      Billy Ray Cyrus: Well, let me give you some advice on that one. When your little girl tells you she wants to go into show business, don't do it.

    • John Rich: I think it's safe to say: Taylor Swift kicks country ass.

    • Jewel: Do me a favor.
      Charlie Jenkins: Ya.
      Jewel: Your voice is tight and I can't tell if you can't sing or you're choking yourself.
