Reality Check: How the American Idol Judges Are Failing Their Faves! Plus: Who Didn't Earn Their Top 14 Slot?

Week one of American Idol‘s Season 15 semifinals are in the books, and my Reality Check co-host Melinda Doolittle and I have more questions than we do answers.

Why aren’t the judges giving constructive feedback to Thomas Stringfellow, Gianna Isabella and La’Porsha Renae? Why exactly was the Idoloonie Nation shut out of the voting process? Was it too dang early for All-Star duets? And what in the name of Toy Story was going on with Jeneve Rose Mitchell’s wardrobe choices?

Melinda and I not only tackle these matters of national importance, but also definitively weigh in on the pronunciation of the word “special,” dish rising contestant Avalon Young’s possible Achilles’ heel, and (along with our trusty editor Jason Averett) fall into am extended Harry Potter flight of fancy in which yours truly plays the villain.
