    Honestly I’d like them to stop with all the pop songs (not even that great). Sure, the first season had too much Broadway, but it also had carefully selected pop songs, not just the ones the producers feel will get them the most sales on iTunes.

    I wish it wasn’t “hey, what was the number one pop song last month?”.
