Melanie Amaro is "The World's Greatest"

Melanie Amaro accomplished the impossible on The X Factor last night: she forced L.A. Reid to offer up words of encouragement.

This judge is so focused on being negative and on creating some kind of feud with the other mentors that he even admitted at one point this week that he goes into each performing looking for faults. But what am I supposed to say? he asked Melanie after she covered R. Kelly's "The World's Greatest." I cannot criticize it.

Signs you need to put your phone down and watch where you're going? When you walk up the down escalator and it takes you like 30 seconds to reach the top.
