We're back for night three and everything is pretty much the same. Actually, no, everything is exactly the same, including the wardrobe, as Ricky, Joel, Seal and Delta return to our screens with not even a colour change.
Unfortunately it wasn't the only colour gaffe of the night with Delta putting not just her foot but her entire body in her mouth, including those sky high heels, after an off-the-cuff remark about contestant Steve Clisby.
Now there are many things of interest about Mr Clisby. At 67 he is the oldest contestant on the show; he also has extensive experience and industry cred having performed for the likes of Santana and Tina Turner; he even performed before Seal many moons ago. Good god, even the fact that his mother is 101 is interesting.
Unfortunately none of these areas were explored in any detail (ha, did I really just say I expected detail?) after Mr Clisby sang Can't Get Enough of Your Love and Delta had to explain just why she had indeed had enough of his love. It turns out she didn't press her big red button for him because she assumed this "cool cat" was a better match for his "brother" Seal.
Yes, she really said that.
"Oh, we're both black," said Seal. "I guess he must be coming on my team then."
Ouch. And it cut just that little bit deeper because, as we all knew, Delta was actually Mr Clisby's preferred mentor - which is a pretty good talking point in itself. (sidenote: I don't know when Delta saw that bit of footage but I bet it hurt.)
And then all hell broke loose. Of course reality TV is already one of the circles of hell, so it was a little more low key than you otherwise might expect. The usually very white but now very red Delta desperately tried to put those words back in her mouth and then proceeded to hide behind her chair. Many people thought she just finally fell off the thing so perhaps didn't notice.
When it was all excruciatingly said and done Seal had the final words with "what are the chances of that happening here in Australia?". Unfortunately pretty bloody high, even on a show where its entire premise centres on 'blind' auditions so that judges can't be affected by visual prejudices.
In the midst of all this we heard from no less than 11 contestants, ranging from the police choir member (apparently that is an actual paying job) Belinda Adams, 39, of Toongabbie, to 16-year-old Jenna Deanis Dark from the Gold Coast, who stunned us all with a voice that was much more mature than her pink, tutued Angelina Ballerina dress had us expect. But of course, by then we should have all known better than to base our opinion on looks.
Delta wisely refused to speak for the rest of the evening and referred all comments to her left breast, which proved to be a surprisingly commanding presence on screen. Competitive too, notably waiting until the last note was ringing in the air before hitting the red button and 'turning' for new dad Oscar from Penrith - so not such a boob after all.
We sadly said goodbye to former boy band member Rien Low and the nurse James Napier, who somehow found himself chasing his family's dreams.
But we welcomed young Danny Ross of Kangaroo Valley, who we met aimlessly wandering among trees holding an acoustic guitar (if this gig doesn't work out can always fall back on a career as background for those soft-focused karaoke videos), and also said hello to twins Bec and Sebastian of Victoria.
Just when things were starting to travel a little too smoothly 24-year-old Kathy Hinch, of Victoria, stepped onto the stage. She sang Girl on Fire and lived up to the title. She pushed Ricky and Joel's buttons, so they in turn pressed theirs and ... nothing. And that's not a euphemism, it was a button black out, so to speak.
And with that my friends we leave you with the first real cliffhanger of the season.
