On NBC’s reality singing competition, Christina Aguilera made an utterly inscrutable decision by sending home rising star De’Borah in favor of the far less exciting Adriana Louise. On The X Factor, meanwhile, Simon Cowell accused Demi Lovato of hurting her proteges’ chances by going overboard with makeovers and crazy staging.
My cohost Melinda Doolittle and I delve deeper into questions about Christina and Demi’s desire to win on this week’s Reality Check, while also reviewing the questionable performances of X Factor hosts Mario “Teleprompter’s Bitch” Lopez and Khloe “What’s That Shiny Object to My Left?” Kardashian.
Of course, Reality Check isn’t all negative all the time. Melinda and I also choose the standout performances from The Voice‘s Live Playoffs round — hello there, Amanda Brown! — and look at which acts are managing to not be swallowed whole by the lights and dancers and other ridiculata on The X Factor stage.
