Does Britney Spears have the potential to be the greatest reality-show judge on TV today? Is it possible that everyone on the planet has a crush on Blake Shelton? And are the audition rounds too early for a reality contestant to engage the audience in a game of “shout my name like I’m a superstar”?
These vital questions and more get tackled in the premiere of Reality Check, a new video series hosted by American Idol‘s Melinda Doolittle and yours truly that takes a deep dive into The X Factor, The Voice, and (occasionally) other reality-competition series.
This week, Melinda and I dish which of the fall’s much-hyped singing series had the most satisfying opening week, which contestants we’re excited to follow into the Battle Rounds/Boot Camp, and why we’re a little obsessed with L.A. Reid’s face.
