Last night we watched some awesome semi-final performances on The X Factor on FOX, and tonight it was time to find out who would be moving on to next week’s finale. After last week’s shocking elimination of Rachel Crow, you can bet that L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell were worried tonight – especially since this week, they had no say in who would be in the finale! Read on for all the highlights, and to find out who is moving on to next week’s finale…
The X Factor live results kicked off tonight as Steve Jones revealed that last night, they received 30 million votes! Steve then informed us that tonight there would be no survival songs, instead it was completely up to the voters. Next up, the final four – Marcus Canty, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro, and Chris Rene took the stage for a performance of No Diggity and Shout.
After a review of the performances from last night, Simon admitted that he was worried after what happened to Rachel Crow last week. Paula told Steve that her two favorite performances from last night were Josh and Chris, and Nicole agreed, but then gave some kudos to Melanie. L.A. Reid commented that this was the first week that he was nervous, especially since two of his contestants were still there. L.A. then revealed how proud he was of both of his contestants, as Steve asked him how he felt being the only judge guaranteed in the finale.
Next up on The X Factor was a performance of Spectrum by Florence And The Machine – and all I can say is wow, that woman has an incredible voice. Then it was finally time for some results, and again they reviewed the final four. Steve Jones then revealed two of the three acts moving on to finale to be Chris Rene and Melanie Amaro.
Next, Nicole Scherzinger hit the stage with her new single Pretty – a daring move after all the bad press she has received, or a smart move? She definitely can belt it out, and the crowd seemed to love it. Finally, it was time to reveal the final act moving on to the finale next week. The act that would be joining Melanie and Chris was revealed to be Josh Krajcik!
Once again, the final three who will battle it out in the finale next week are Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik!
