Thanksgiving week was a highly emotional experience on "The X Factor," especially for two contestants, CeCe Frey and Paige Thomas, who already had terrible memories associated with the holiday season: CeCe's sister died from cerebral palsy complications at age 7 on Christmas Eve, and on another horrific Christmas Eve long ago, Paige's mother was killed in a drunk-driving accident. So last Wednesday, both CeCe and Paige poured their hearts, souls, and quite literally their tears into performances for their loved ones. (CeCe dedicated "Wind Beneath My Wings" to her late sister, Kelsey; Paige dedicated Britney Spears's "Everytime" to Colleen, the woman who adopted her after her mother's death.) And after the show, they composed themselves and spoke to Reality Rocks backstage about showcasing previously unseen, vulnerable sides of themselves to America.Read More »from CeCe Frey & Paige Thomas Open Up About Emotional ‘X Factor’ Performances

Cody Belew gives "Voice" fans reason to be thankful! [photo: Tyler Goldman/NBC]Last week was Thanksgiving week, which was cause for celebration, of course--at least on "The Voice." But it was a (melo)dramatically different story on "The X Factor," which cruelly opted to air a double-elimination episode ON THANKSGIVING, aka the night that will henceforth be known as Black Thursday to the latest two probably-unthankful "X Factor" castoffs, Arin Ray and Beatrice Miller. Sheesh, that Simon Cowell really is a Scrooge.
But let's focus on the celebratory stuff for a moment, shall we? So last Monday on "The Voice," this happened:Read More »from It’s Been Real: The Week In Reality Rocks Ending Nov. 23

I literally didn't see her coming!Regular readers of Reality Rocks are well aware that I was (and am) a massive fan of "The X Factor's" Lyric 145, and that I was none too thrilled with their ridiculous 12th-place elimination last week. So when I was invited to be a guest on "The X Factor's" live online preshow this past Wednesday, I was totally representin', rocking an eyepatch in protest and in honor of frontwoman Lyric Da Queen. But little did I know that I was about to be upstaged on the preshow by a special secret guest: Lyric Da Queen herself!Read More »from Lyric Da Queen Surprises Yahoo!’s Lyndsey Parker On ‘The X Factor’ Preshow

Beatrice Miller's very unhappy ThanksgivingThis Thursday was Thanksgiving on "The X Factor," obviously. But while the show made a feeble attempt to create a warm 'n' fuzzy holiday vibe by having the top 10 sing with L.A.'s Bancroft Middle School Choir and by (pre-Black Friday product placement alert!) helping Best Buy refurbish the school's music room, we all knew that by the end of this very ill-timed episode, two of these 10 contestants would not be feeling so thankful. Yes, it was another double-elimination night on "The X Factor," and Scroogey Simon Cowell and Grinchy L.A. Reid weren't going to let a little something like a major holiday stop them from getting down to business. If you were expecting hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian to gleefully announce, "Hey, guess what? Surprise! No one goes home this week!"--well, that didn't happen.Read More »from ‘X Factor’ Thanksgiving Night Top 10 Results: Black Thursday
