Well they did it again by short-changing a few of the blind auditions. I'm trying to remember if any of the reduced-to-montage singers ever succeeded in the live rounds. I know they short-changed Cassadee Pope's knockout round, but the knockout round was a new thing last year and they had a lot more performers (which thankfully they cut back down for this season). Does anyone without a broadcast backstory get very far on this show?
I've also noticed the time they devote to airing the coaches bickering with each other is like three times longer than previous seasons.
