Thursday's double elimination show was a dramatic night for Fox's X Factor, and that drama continued after the cameras stopped rolling.
Our top moments of the week:
15. Best Test Run: When Teddy starts to lose faith in relationships on 90210, Silver has just the solution: a shotgun wedding! Hitch: There's no marriage license and same-sex marriage isn't legal in Nevada, but Teddy and his new boyfriend exchange vows in front of an Elvis impersonator all the same, and Teddy reaffirms his faith in the power of love. Here's hoping what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.

Dear Reality Shows,
Listen, we need to talk. It's about these two-hour episodes, the twice-a-week commitments, the extended eliminations, the reunions... all of it. Our DVRS are tired, and so are we. In other words, it's not us. It's you.

Well, now that you've tuned in to Wednesday's premiere to see the goods firsthand, let's discuss. We want to hear your opinions on the night's standouts, good and bad, starting with:
Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole
Simon Cowell says he tried to keep Cheryl Cole on both versions of The X Factor and that he takes "full responsibility" for the drama surrounding her exits from the shows.
Denying reports that Cole was axed because of her thick Newcastle, England, accent, and that she didn't jibe with Paula Abdul on the judges' panel, Cowell said he thought Cole would be happier back home in England on the original X Factor.
