I feel 1) like I say this every season about American Idol, and 2) like I already said it about last night's show. But it's still true: I want to see more singing. More than 100 folks took part in the group auditions, and how many did we really see? A fraction.

Some amazing group performances did get some airtime, but I would have preferred more of them. I would have even rather seen more of the people-falling-apart auditions than so much of the behind-the-scenes drama for the last two groups that performed.

As per usual, the producers oversold the dramatic new changes in the season. I was expecting a lot more from tonight's episode. But what sticks with me are the few clips of excellent singing we were shown, which leaves me wanting more, and not in a good way.

What do you think about tonight's show?
