X Factor, The Day After: Final Auditions Dish with Guest Christa Collins

Reality Rocks (New)

Last night, "The X Factor" aired its final auditions, and while my usual "The Day After" co-host, Matt Whitfield, isn't here to share his final thoughts before Season 2 moves on to Bootcamp, one of my favorite Season 1 "X Factor" semifinalists, Christa Collins, is here to offer the unique perspective of someone who's been through Simon Cowell's reality wringer. (Watch Christa's "No Surprises" performance from the Season 1 Judges' Houses round HERE.)

Check out our extended, in-depth conversation about Season 1 versus Season 2, "The X Factor" versus "The Voice," and what it's really like to be on a so-called "reality" show like "The X Factor."

What did you think of last night's show? Feel free to add your own commentary on the message board below.
