Filling Paula's shoes

After another week of singing, I remain committed to my top twelve picks.

Thus far, the most interesting part of this season is the judging dynamic. Ellen may be Paula's replacement, but Kara is sure doing everything she can to take her place. She cuddles up to Simon. She flirts desperately with contestants. She talks crazy talk apropos of nothing. Tonight, she couldn't speak because she was weeping after Mike Lynche's performance, and she couldn't even collect herself before the credits rolled.

Keep trying, Kara. Paula's crazy is patented, and you look even sillier than normal trying to replicate it.
