“The X Factor” judge Nicole Scherzinger made national headlines when her vote to send home Rachel Crow made the 13-year-old singer break out in tears. In what was either a moment of exceptional timing or hyper-speed production, “30 Rock” has decided to create a moment just like that.
During the season premiere of the Emmy-winning series, Jenna (Jane Krakowski) takes on a new job, a judge on the talent show “Kidz Got Singing.” And it appears to go to her head.
“You’re weird looking,” Jenna tells a young contestant. “Even if you could sing, with that face, it would be like eating a steak that just came out of a dumpster.” And that’s the polite part. All the while, Jack (Alec Baldwin) is off-stage clearly suffering from anxiety over the monster he’s created.
“30 Rock” nails the visual of singing competitions, right down to a soda endorsement. Plus, we’re certainly excited to see John McEnroe on the panel.
The series returns on Jan. 12 at 8 p.m. ET.
