‘Reality Check’: Why Qaasim Middleton Deserved the Save on ‘American Idol XIV’
TVLine.com‘s resident reality TV expert Michael Slezak is back with American Idol 6 finalist Melinda Doolittle for an all-new episode of Reality Check, as the duo takes a look into the highs and lows of the week for American Idol XIV and The Voice 8!
This week, Michael and Melinda discuss the controversial save of Qaasim Middleton on last Thursday’s American Idol Top 10 show, as their opinions on Qaasim deserving the save seem to go contrary to many of their fans and readers. Hell, Melinda is even losing friends over this! So why did they feel Qaasim deserved the save? Also, why does Melinda embracing Qaasim’s save make her a hypocrite by her own admission? And what does Melinda think Zoanette Johnson did better than Jennifer Hudson? This is the best episode of the Reality Check season so far, as Michael and Melinda also explore what’s going to be the ONE key, above every other factor, to winning season 14 of American Idol. It’s a show not only fans ought to watch, but I’d argue it’s something the contestants themselves really need to see. (Hell, I’m tweeting this to Nick Fradiani)
