My overall impression

This was a weird one for me.
First the pros.
The house was packed! They needed to add seats and the space was small (basically it felt like a classroom). The performances were good and I especially like the foreign intern, Honeylamb and the only real cowboy of the bunch (with the guitar – contestant #5)
Now the cons – I guess this is some sort of contest and it was fixed. It was basically 7 different stories with no real connection except it was presented as part of a radio show? A contest? Not exactly sure what the premise was. There seemed to be a director and a producer but what it was was a little unclear. Each “contestant” read some sort of script but then they were rated by a judge for a score.
The performances were good and some were amazing. But the concept of the show still needs some work IMHO.
