So far I've just seen the semi-finals. I have to say that the judges are very inconsistent, and both the decisions on who was chosen to compete in LA and who advanced to the finals are questionable. Those girls from the Midwest were laaaame. The NJ crew wasn't much better.
The dance off was wack. The roller-skating crew was a one-note gimic. I can't stand when shows like this leave voting to the audience when said audience has no qualifications to judge (just full of friends, family members, tourists, and Central Casting extras??). So 8 teams were selected by "expert" judges, then 1 of the four loser crews get selected by the crowd to join the "expertly-selected" 8?
Randy Jackson being EP explains a lot.
