IS THERE ANYTHING EASIER ABOUT HOSTING THIS SEASON? HARDER? WHAT CONTINUES TO SURPRISE YOU AFTER 1.5 SEASONS?
I find things a lot easier in terms of getting around the theater. I feel more at home and I'm certain it comes from being around everything so much. Everyone on the crew has been great and very receptive.
The contestant performances continue to surprise me from week to week. Each time, someone steps up their game and is really making this competition closer.
I hope that the contestants who have jumped out in front don't rest on their laurels and get too comfortable. It appeared that some may have gotten comfortable. We'll see what happens next week.
Last season was a little new to me and it took a while to get used to it but I had a blast! This season is so much fun for me and I'm just glad I've had the chance to come back.
The remaining weeks of the show should prove to test the mettle of the contestants. Do they have the ability to continue under the mounting pressure?
Next week is Original Song Week and I can't wait!
