Hmm... it was better than I expected. I liked the banter between the judges, and the fact that they had people that could really sing and not mix with it people that were terrible... but:
1. I agree with whoever said it needs to be faster paced. The auditions need to speed up a little (like on BGT and The X Factor) to mix it up a bit, and keep the excitement levels up.
2. It would have been good to have either Reggie or Holly come up to talk with the acts on the stage / ask questions to the judges like on the X Factor (the bit where the acts walked off was a little awkward).
3. Won't the acts be judged on looks anyway after the judges have seen their faces / the audience are the ones voting and they can vote based on looks..?
Overall though, I enjoyed the show. It really does have a different feel to the X Factor and American Idol. (The smaller stage and more 'intimate' setting is a little more Fame Academy like.
EDIT: I actually didn't mind the name-dropping. The banter between the judges is what made it quirky and different to other panel shows, and as it was done in a jokey way it was cool. Will.I.Am's impression of MJ was the funniest I thought.
