Facebook user Carol Sanders said, "Still not fair to West Coast. I like to stay off Twitter so I don't know who is saved before I actually get to see it. Now, I can't see the show, but I can know is possibly gone? Thanks a whole heap!" Facebook user Neuber Nunes was excited about the new "Instant Save." He said, "Wowww, I'm from Brazil and now I can participate!" However, CarterMatt.com compared the "Instant Save" to the flash vote on the "The X Factor" UK earlier this season that was widely unpopular. But they argued that this was worst because the British show wasn't dealing with multiple time zones. Watch Carson Daly explain the "Instant Vote" below.
