Last week on The X Factor we watched a double elimination, and this week there was another double elimination after the Michael Jackson performances last night. Who made it into the top five? Read on to find out!
The X Factor kicked off the live results this week with a performance of Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror by the remaining seven. They were all amazing in this performance, it’s going to be hard to say goodbye to anyone tonight, that’s for sure. Next, we saw a rundown of last night’s performance, along with some of the judges’ critique. Simon Cowell said that after the performances last night, he was not sure how the votes were going to go tonight.
Next it was time for some results, after Steve called the mentors and the remaining seven acts to the stage. The four acts that were automatically going through to next week were: Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro, Rachel Crow, and then it was off to commercial break, as they had to leave us hanging. Steve then reminded us that the person with the lowest amount of votes would be automatically eliminated. Upon speaking with the contestants, they all seemed a bit worries, except for Astro, who seemed very confident.
Before any more results were revealed, we got a performance from Tinie Tempah, complete with a colorful light show. Then Steve announced that Josh Krajcik would be moving on to next week, while Astro had the lowest amount of votes and was eliminated. This time around, Astro was in good spirits and promised us that he would be back. That also meant that Marcus Canty and Drew would be battling it out in the “Sing for your life” portion of the show.
Drew was up first for her survival song, and Simon Cowell sounded like he was too good to announce his contestant – or he was just pissed that she was there! Drew performed her version of Listen To Your Heart by Roxette, while Marcus Canty took on Gladys Knight’s Neither One Of Us. Marcus was by far the better survival song tonight, but did the judges think so?
L.A. Reid was up first and he said he was torn, but he chose to send Drew home. Simon Cowell admitted that it was his fault that Drew ended up in the bottom (for his song choice), and then he said he was voting to send Marcus home. Nicole Scherzinger was up next and she was reduced to tears as she gushed about both Drew and Marcus, and then decided that she wanted to send Drew home. That meant it was up to Paula Abdul, who thought Marcus outperformed Drew tonight and she decided to send Drew home. That meant that Drew was eliminated this week – despite Simon’s pleas to give her another shot – along with Astro.
Your top five on The X Factor who will perform again next week are: Rachel Crow, Melanie Amaro, Chris Rene, Josh Krajcik, and Marcus Canty!
