I am also glad to have a season where we don't have to listen to Christina. I read an article a few days ago that said CeeLo would not be returning to the show. That makes me kind of sad. My preferred judges would be Adam, CeeLo, Shakira, and Blake (though I'm getting a bit tired of him and ready for someone new in that seat).
Lots of good performances so far. I don't bother remembering people's names at this point because who knows whether they will even make it past the battle or knockout rounds. But it seems like it will be a good season.
