Another season of American Idol — its penultimate one! — is in the books, and the guy who almost everybody wrote off as a mid-pack player turned out to be the last one standing.
On this week’s episode of Reality Check, my cohost Melinda Doolittle and I examine Nick Fradiani’s upset victory — while trying not to think too much about how The House That Kelly Clarkson Built is slated for demolition this time next year.
We also dish the Season 14 finale — including our favorite vocal moments and the interludes that left us scratching our heads. (Wait, did we enjoy J.Lo’s singing?!)
Plus, we look at The Voice‘s Season 8 Top 4 — and it’s Melinda who provides concrete evidence of why it’s not smart to bet the entire mortgage on wonder kid Sawyer Fredericks.
