Most Popular Reality TV Performances of 2011
Here’s a list of the most popular Reality TV performances on Rickey.org.
The Reality TV results show live updates are among the most popular posts on the blog. But pop culture topics are now the most popular individual items.
American Idol is no longer the dominant Reality TV topic over here. It now shares the limelight with The X Factor, The Voice and Dancing with the Stars. So You Think You Can Dance dipped (I’m so disappointed!) and America’s Got Talent gained in popularity this year. The Sing-Off unfortunately slipped from the radar.
The most popular performance post from America’s Got Talent which did not make the list (but still in the Top 25) was: Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. – My Way – America’s Got Talent Finale
The most popular performance posts from Dancing with the Stars are: Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough — Viennese Waltz (from Season 6!), Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Rumba and Derek Hough and Allison Holker – Argentine Tango Flamenco
The Top 20:
The night Simon Cowell declared that she could win from The X Factor Top 12 show.
The American Idol Top 24 show was one of the most popular shows of the year with multiple performances making it on the list.
One of three Drew performances on the list!
She peaked early, then self-destructed.
Scotty won American Idol, but he did not have breakout performances with Rickey.org readers. This performance isn’t even the most popular on the Top 24 show.
Should Dia have won The Voice? Her performances were consistently the most popular for the season.
Melanie Moore won So You Think You Can Dance and Rickey.org readers knew it from the very beginning.
Another Top 24 performance, this time powered by the blog’s sizeable following from the Philippines.
The X Factor winner’s second performance on the list and her most memorable.
Another performance from The X Factor Top 12 show.
One of three performances on the list. Rickey.org readers love Haley.
Rachel Crow gave us the Reality TV moment of the year during the The X Factor Final 5 results show. But Boot Camp was her most popular performance.
American Idol didn’t feature Paul that much during the auditions and his fans were desperate to get any information. This post was powered by Google searches for Paul early in the season.
Paul’s Maggie Mae was his signature song during the season.
Rose petals! Rickey.org readers love Drew.
Haley’s performance mentored by Lady Gaga.
The performance that earned Pia front-runner status… leading to one of the biggest shockers in American Idol history.
Stefano schools us on how to sing a save me song. The save me song that actually got someone saved. Another amazing moment from American Idol.
Haley was very popular online but just couldn’t get the vote to win the show. This was her peak.
This post more than doubled the pageviews of #2 on the list. It stands as one of the greatest Reality TV show auditions, if not the greatest, of all time.

"Scotty won American Idol, but he did not have breakout performances with Rickey.org readers. This performance isn’t even the most popular on the Top 24 show."
Well, he's still the only one on the list about to go Platinum...
I'm happy to see Young Homie made it to the number 1 spot. I look at til this day and it still captivates me as if I'm watching it for the very first time.
i would prefer haley's house of the rising sun to be the winner of this list... seriously?! chris Rene???????????????????????????
Glad Chris got # 1, but how the hell did Javier Colon's time after time not make this list that is just crazy.
Oh no! 'Young Homie' is one of my all-time favorite performances on any of these reality shows --including! What a moment. I loved it.
