Reality Check: Slezak and Doolittle talk elimination shockers

Credit: NBC

Michael Slezak and American Idol‘s Melinda Doolittle are back to discuss the week in singing competitions, going over the unfortunate eliminations that plagued both The Voice and The X Factor.

After having watched the video, I have to admit I’m 100% in Slezak and Melinda’s camp. (And I’m not just saying that because I was on this show once.) There’s absolutely no excuse for holding back and hoping that you’ll get a chance to show everything yo’ve got at a later date. In particular, I, too, found it somewhat ridiculous that Emblem3 keeps promising to play their instruments at a later date, and then never delivering. I can certainly understand that the final choice rests with Simon (see also: the producers), but the boys are in control of what they do/don’t promise, particularly if they can’t be certain if it’s a promise they’ll be able to keep. But really, that’s picking nits, and there are bigger fish to fry this week.

Is Carly Rose human?

Is a Cassadee Pope victory inevitable?

And what led to Dez Duron’s downfall? (Try saying that twenty times fast, through the tears that will accompany the reminder that Dez is gone)

Check out the latest episode of Reality Check!

Do you agree or disagree with what Michael and Melinda had to say?

lol.  They had me until Melinda said Dez is a "realllly gooood singer".  They're both upset about Dez leaving and not a word about Cody?


@Mikhail XO Yes Michael is right but I don't care Carly Rose is still AMAZING!  lols

@Mikhail XO @IdleTime Well, to be fair (and this will do nothing to dissuade you from the belief that I'm a secret "friend of Judy"), LOOK AT THE GUY! I mean, come on! Even I can't front on that face.

@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 @IdleTime Oh, I was just kidding around about the "one of us" talk. I don't care what people think I am, and I sincerely doubt anyone would care if I did. I just tend to over-explain things about myself because I can occasionally be sort of a moron. 

But hey, my man-crush on Dez doesn't preclude my admission that Cody is a handsome, handsome man.
