Watched the first hour. Union and Hough are pretty reserved compared to Mel and Heidi. Hopefully they open up up some more as the season gets rolling. #BuzzerBadass was pretty funny. Terry Crews had more enthusiasm, charisma and charm in the first 10 minutes than Tyra did in an entire season. She won't be missed.

As for the acts... First hour was decent. I wasn't too hip on Shin Lim 2.0. Something about that act was very hokey. Seemed like a lot of store bought trickery in the table and cards and less traditional slight of hand trickery. I hate dance acts, but the Mumbai group was pretty good. The different culture, music and style helped them stand out. The other memorable one was Sophie? Sophia? The girl who sang about being bullied. Powerful song from someone so young. Not the strongest musically or vocally, but the content carried her through.

I assume this will be up on Hulu tomorrow. I know I won't miss Mel B or Heidi, but I don't know the background of these two new judges. Are they likely to be good additions?

Julianne Hough is a terrific dancer, -she joined "Dancing With The Stars" in it's fourth season, and won (with her celeb partner) her first two seasons. She eventually returned to the show as a judge for several seasons. She's also a singer and actress, appearing in the "Footloose" remake and "Rock of Ages" and some Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

The guy in the animal outfits was probably the funniest thing on the show in years. Of course Howie was the only one who saw it for what it was, though Simon was finally won over. I told the wife that I guess they needed to save room for another 13 year old singer, and guess who is up next? A 13 year old singer. If we weren't watching it live she wouldn't have believed I hadn't seen it already.

I used to set the show above other similar shows because it wasn't just another parade of singers and they gave some credit for originality and outside the box thinking. I also was glad they dumped the two middle judges, but the new ones are honestly no better. The show has fully devolved into being just another trite and predictable piece of over-produced garbage where having a story (no matter how flimsy and embellished) counts more than actual talent. What a shame.

Terry Crews should host the Oscars

I wonder how long these guys will last?
