The Voice and American Idol conclude their respective seasons this week — which means it’s time for Reality Check‘s “Who Should Win?” speeches, along with a few paranoid conspiracy theories and extremely relevant hashtags (#idolendofdays, anyone?).
Along the way, my cohost Melinda Doolittle and I dissect Idol‘s Top 3 Week madness — the umpteen references to Caleb Johnson’s illness, the re-use of an entire story arc from Season 10 and even our first use of the compliment “heifer” this season. Other important discussion topics include bouncing bazooms, the Medieval Chromatic Scale and playing doctor (not as dirty as it sounds).
We also talk about The Voice‘s crazy and unfulfilling rush toward its own Season 6 finale — and ponder exactly how country crooner Jake Worthington found himself competing in the finale against Josh Kaufman and Christina Grimmie. And then there’s the matter of Adam Levine’s, um, unexpected* song choices. (*a polite way of saying totally jacked-up)
