Eventually the judges decided to eliminate Beatrice, with Simon casting the tie-breaking vote and saying, "I think this is getting to be too much for you. I don't think this is the right time for you. I am going to have to send you home." And then Rachel Crow flashbacks raced through my tryptophan-addled brain, as young Beatrice sobbed uncontrollably on live television. "Are you okay?" Khloe asked Beatrice, probably rhetorically; Beatrice wailed in response, "No!!!!" Then Beatrice actually apologized to her younger †sisters (to whom she'd dedicated her Wednesday performance of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars") for supposedly letting them down.
Yep, there's no better way for the whole family to enjoy Thanksgiving than by gathering 'round the TV set and watching little kids' dreams get mashed like yams.

Watch my delighted (and thankful) reaction below, when Lyric bumrushed my live interview; I managed to make children on Christmas morning look positively sedate.
