I'm thinking you are right .. my take was from the first 3 days of auditions where the judges were actually there ..
I have to say as well that the shows I went to were pretty disapponting from the standpoint of the audience ..
1) If you were young / dressed cool / female / good looking .. they ushered you to the front immediately ..
2) The warm up guy encouraged audience emotion too much .. which made a large portion of the audience not give most of the acts even 30 seconds of a chance before booing and arm crossing erupted ..
3) Between every second act, a make up break took place so Sharon, Howie and Howard could have two makeup people each come out and do a touch up ..
4) Nick was there but rarely came out .. I'd guess much of his MC duties are dubbed in later ..
