Baby lock them doors and turn the lights down low: American Idol‘s Season 13 auditions are in the books, and it’s time for the nightmare that is Hollywood Week.
But before Reality Check can launch into a discussion about those Holding Rooms of Doom — seriously, my cohost Melinda Doolittle is still traumatized by her Season 6 experiences — we’ve got to dish the highs and lows of the Salt Lake City and Omaha episodes.
On the docket? J.Lo’s obsession with saying “Yes” (which runs second only to Keith Urban’s use of “baby”), Week 3 standouts like Paisley Van Patten, Paula Hunt and Austin Wolfe, and the inexplicable “no” votes that Harry and Keith gave to the sublime Jessica Bassett. Not only that, but we’ve got added goodness from Sherlock, Short Term 12, Community, Shadow of a Doubt and more!
So press play below for our latest episode, then hit the comments with your thoughts on this week’s show — and on any contestants you think we snubbed in our discussion! And for all my Idol-related recaps, videos, interviews and exclusives, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
