    Ah yeah I forgot there is such thing as “Save Me” songs. But that’s btwn 2 acts and for the shows that have the public vote and all the judgementors get a vote btwn the 2.

    So, they would have to introduce another step just like Voice did this year with both their Steal and Knockout.

    Even if they weren’t planning on doing it your way, I hope they do. I like the idea of 16 in 2hrs and then 8 (2 from each team) fighting for the final 4, 1 per team, slot the very next night. It has a chance to help freshen the show like the Voice has.

    i’m not a fan of castle but it is most certainly a lock for renewal. therefore you mentioning “fan excuse bingo” is irrelevant.

    I just read that On Wednesday, The X Factor will air Top 16 and On Thursday is the reveal of the top 12 (I Think this is what it says on top, Does it?)

    Fox’s TV schedule is about as confusing as the presidential polls.
