I understand what you're saying, and you may be right. I just think back to someone like Javier Colon...everybody except Blake had turned around long before he started getting to the apex of his performance, and that's because they heard how good he was. To me, I could hear how good this dude was, yet nobody turned around. I agree that they didn't "wow" them, but that hasn't been necessary for many, many contestants before him. Who knows, maybe when we went counted against him and had he gone earlier, someone would've turned.. And they know better than I do, which is why they get paid millions to do it and I sit at home and watch them and bitch about what they do and don't do.
As for my favorite...I'm not sure. I really liked I Wish It Would Rain dude, but that's because I am incredibly partial to that song. I'd have to see a montage of all the performances to decide that. I may actually watch the "Best of blind auditions" show tonight to recap who all made it on the show...and maybe even to catch the performances that didn't originally air (fricking NBC).
And I completely agree on Milian...she is awful and serves no purpose IMO. I guess from NBC's perspective they wanted to get some "hot, young starlet" to draw attention to the social media angle of the show, but it falls flat IMO with her..which leads me to believe she's basically only on air for eye candy. And the social media thing is something they push HARD, always flashing up Twitter messages left and right on the screen and whatnot.
