They just needed to shoot the judges.

I would like to see the judges achieve what they demand and then I'll take notice. I would still reserve the right to wonder what recreational drug they were taking though when they spout such nonsense.
I rather agree with both of you
The Italian judge was just baffling I do not think he new what he wanted to see himself when he finished talking.
