Jason Farol is in peril before the start of Week 3 of the first season of Duets. He was 8th (last place) in the scoring the first week and 7th out of 8 in Week 2. At the end of Week 3, the two bottom singing contestants in the judges’ scoring will be in a heads-up sing-off. The loser of that battle will go home as the first eliminated contestant in the history of Duets.
The rules have not been revealed and keep changing in this poorly produced Duets TV show. Assuming the scores are averaged, there is really no way that Jason can avoid the bottom 2 if the show only counts the first two weeks of scores. However, if they count the Week 3 scores, then Jason has a slim chance of avoiding the sing-off.
In all likelihood, however, Jason will be in the bottom 2 with either Olivia Chisholm or Jordan Meredith. The show did not reveal how the elimination will take place from there. Presumably, though, the judges will give scores for the sing-off only and eliminate the bottom contestant.
Kelly and Jason are singing “Hallelujah.” As it turns out, only this week’s scores count. That means Jason can avoid the bottom 2 and the sing-off if he can manage at least 6th place out of the 8 contestants’ performances this week.
Jason’s dad shows up in rehearsals to assure him that the family supports him.
He is saving himself now. This is one of the best vocals of the week.
I put him second this week. He does have a great vocal tone when he hits his mark.
John Legend is off his rocker, complaining about pitchiness and pronunciation.
Inexplicably, the judges rank him 6th out of the first 7.
