X Factor 2 - Top 6 Power List, Predictions and Poll Results!

Here is my prediction for the X Factor Top 6. It’s tentative, because I’m only really sure of the Top 2–Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens. Any of the remaining contestants could wind up singing for their lives tonight.

You might think CeCe Frey will finally hit the road, but I’m not so sure. The flamboyant singer is the only remaining finalist on Demi Lovato’s team. If CeCe doesn’t have a strong fan base, Demi sure does. She spent all of last night begging her 10m+ twitter fans to vote and returning their tweets (Ugh, I finally had to turn that shiz off). One returned tweet said essentially, “I don’t know who I voted for, but I went and did it anyway.” So yeah, the Lovatics may save CeCe’s butt this week.

As hard as Simon has been pushing Emblem3, their performances were really uneven this week. They could even be a surprise instant elimination. I wouldn’t be completely shocked if they had to sing for their lives. Fifth Harmony and Diamond White stepped it up this week. The former has fans, the latter not so much. It may be a little too late for Diamond.

Check out the poll results! One of Tate Stevens’ performances is dead last. CeCe and Fifth Harmony are ranking pretty high.

There are lots of variables to be considered this week. I think the night could produce some surprises.

    I still think Douche3 will land third. The real question is if Diamond goes out first, will the other three judges decide to mutiny against Simon and vote for CeCe to stay just to spite him?
    If you’re right and the boyz sing for their lives (which I would be ecstatic for), the chances of them voting to keep CeCe would be even higher. It is, after all, in both LA and Brit’s best interest to keep CeCe for another week to automatically fill next week’s bottom slot.

  • KatMyers

    Go CeCe!!!  That’s it lol.  :)

  • http://twitter.com/JonKills Jon Glass

    Come on CeCe. I voted a lot last night. I called about 70 times last night and not sure how many online votes I sent it. She really isn’t that bad.

  • thedeviledadvocate

    Would it not be rather funny if both of Simon’s groups were eliminated tonight? Now that would be what I would call a shocking elimination night LOL!

  • fantoo1

    I can see two of either Cece, 5th harmony, or Diamond leaving. It would actually be hilarious if Cece stayed again.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Fanfan-Serber/1442338005 Fanfan Serber

    It already was.

  • tati83

    I think Carly will hold on to #1 and Tate #2. #3-6 really is anyone’s guess. I really do hope Fifth Harmony managed to get at least the third slot but I highly doubt that. Which is a shame cause Fifth Harmony is way better than Emblem 3. I am predicting Diamond White instant elimination and Cece and Fifth Harmony in a sing off with only Demi voting for Cece to stay. 

  • ticktock8

    Only CeCe and Emblem3 have a chance of becoming successful recording artists in the near future, and will almost certainly be signed even though neither will win. There’s just no US market for girl groups, and Diamond and Carly are too young. 

    Ok, maybe Tate, but who knows what goes on in Country-land.

    Cece FTW! If she leaves I’ll be rooting for Tate Stevens just to annoy the hell out of Simon.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I don’t know if Simon really wants to sign anyone at this point. Really. I think just the winner, obviously, and maybe (maybe!) Emblem3 will be signed.

  • http://twitter.com/ClaudeDee Claude Dee

    Diamond White/5th Harmony and Cece Frey will go home tonight. Emblem3 should go, but you know… hormonal tweens. lol 

  • Last Laugh Lane

    I think a Diamond/E3 elimination would be fantastic. Neither are ready for the big time, as displayed last night. As a surprise to some, Fifth Harmony has so much more appeal to the One Direction crowd than E3, who they see as an attempt for Simon to trick them into making an “American” 1D with mediocre vocals. 5H can actually sing well and are molding together as a group more and more. I stan hard for them because I do believe they should be signed with Epic/Syco.

  • Reflects On Life

    So odd that BOTH of CeCe’s performances rank HIGHER than EITHER of Diamond’s.  Was CeCe so consistently better than Diamond? 

    (Personally I would have ranked both of Diamond’s higher than either of CeCe’s, but I would have expected to see their 4 performances intermixed in the list.)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    ““I don’t know who I voted for, but I went and did it anyway.” So yeah, the Lovatics may save CeCe’s butt this week.”

    Yeah. This kind of thing is why I can’t take the voting seriously on The Voice and the X-Factor.

  • Listening

    I know Diamond is definitely in the bottom 3.  She’s probably be the instant elimination But Emblem 3 actually deserve to be instant eliminated b/c they were the absolute worst of the night. In both their songs their vocals were terrible.

    I can see a senerio where both Simons group slip into the bottom 3 Emblem 3 more than Fifth Harmony b/c of their poor performances. And Fifth Harmony by virture of Cee Cee fans voting like crazy for her b/c everybody knows she’s always in danger.

    If Cee Cee lands in the bottom 3 she’s gone w/ only Demi voting to keep her.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m still rooting for Tate to win because he’s good and an older country guy winning the X-Factor would drive Simon nuts. lol

  • Reflects On Life

    Since when does a 5-person vocal group need 4 backup singers?

    This is the same question we used to ask during 1D’s run on XF UK 7 LOL.

    5th Harmony’s “Give Your Heart a Break” had excellent harmonies because 4 women who aren’t part of 5th Harmony were providing the vocals (2 on either end of the stage). 

    But as Demi pointed out, the song (melody & sass) is tailor-made for a girl group, and they did perform it well (facial expressions, attitudes, solo vocals).

  • http://twitter.com/MorrisRhonda RHONDA MORRIS

    I vote for CeCe.  The rest are oh so boring, and Emblem sings worse than me. Also, CeCe is getting votes from Wilmer Valderrama, and Jordyn Weiber(fab 5). They will retweet everyone who votes and follow them as well. CeCe has aloth of fans.

  • Nedsdag

    I think E3 pulls it out due to the maniacal tweens, but since there are a lot of Kool Aid drinkers out there, Third Rate Ke$ha aka CeCe may be around one more week.

    Ugh! Sadly, the contestant I see having a major career out of this show is Tate. Sorry, Carly Fans, but she needs a Glee/Smash kind of show for her to truly be successful. JMHO.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ppmoreira10 Pepe Moreira

    For me, Cece and Diamond leave… or Cece and Emblem3 // Top3: Carly, Fifth and Tate 

  • Benjamin Morris

    Really almost no result would shock me other than Carly dropping out of the #1 spot or Tate being insta-gone.

    Everyone assumes Tate will cruise because he has been in the top for so long, but a competition with 6 contestants is very different from one with 12.  Counter-intuitively, I think Carly may actually protect him from falling too far by continuing to consolidate the non-country vote (though ultimately his only chance of winning is in a 3-way finale where the other two split evenly).

    Fifth Harmony and Cece have been making huge gains on YouTube this week over previous ones. Though a lot of people are probably just gawking at the Cece trainwreck, I wouldn’t be surprised to see FH avoid the sing-off or even squeak into the #2 slot.

    Carly’s Youtube dominance has only been growing as the season goes on, and she’s now pulling in between 50% and 70% of daily views for every performance round. Some people on Twitter have suggested that she has a pretty good overseas following, which may help explain why the voting has still been closer than you’d think. 

    And while YouTube raw numbers don’t tell you too much about how contestants compare to each other (since they reflect the type of fanbase a contestant has just as much as how popular they are), for any particular contestant they can definitely indicate whether their popularity is rising or falling.

  • girlygirltoo

    Either Simon or L.A. will sign Emblem3 no matter where they finish, probably in the hopes of trying to turn them into a US version of 1D despite the boys’ claims that they aren’t anything like Simon’s super group.

    The question is whether Emblem3 will continue to go along with the idea of turning them into a boy band once they get signed, or whether they will rebel and really push for their original style with instruments, etc.

  • kmd23

    I think that Cece, Fifth Harmony ,or Diamond will go. I really don’t care if they stay or not. I think E3 will be 3rd or 2nd tonight.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tammyluebrecht Tammy Luebrecht

    I’m sticking with the one I’ve stuck with since the beginning…Tate! I think he’s the only one who can jump right in and be successful. Country is much more forgiving about age, looks etc than pop music. Also, country music fans are loyal as can be. When they like someone, they support them. The only way I can see Tate leaving the show tonight is if his fans thought he was safe based on the rankings up until now and didn’t vote their butts off.

  • http://twitter.com/RyanStOnge Ryan St. Onge

    Cool. I voted online 200 times using four different facebook accounts for Cece. I also voted a good 300 to 400 times over the phone. I had the house phone and my cell phone in both my hands hitting redial ;)

  • Keyera Mullins

    I like Diamond, but she’s really been pitchy in a lot of her recent performances, but with practice I see a future for her & CeCe has been the least consistent. I think they are the two to go tonight, but who knows.  XFactor likes the “shockers”

    I agree with this… this is the route Carly should take after the show. Although she did mention she wants to be an actress and with Broadway and TV experience already pretty sure she’s got the foundations for that. Carly would be perfect for Glee, if only the show wasn’t going downhill. 

  • http://twitter.com/BazzleFjsm Bazzle

    I actually hope that Emblem3 don’t go home but land in the bottom 3. That will give Simon a rude awakening and maybe let them do their originals. 

  • Benjamin Morris

    The difference between Diamond and Carly is that Diamond is a skilled, highly-trained singer with a successful stage career, and Carly is an extremely skilled, highly-trained singer with an extremely successful stage career.

    Geeze the loathing of E3 here is unreal to me.  Have you youtubed their original music?  It is pretty darn good.  They are more like Blink 182 than 1D.

    Simon has tried to sugar coat them for TV and I wish he had of let them be who they are.  But they are not IMO terrible. 

    I care not if they are voted off though my teen dd will be devasted. 

    They will be signed. 

    These shows fail because of people voting for the terrible ones for fun.

    Cece really?  She is beautiful and should model.  But sing? IDK.  Ke$ha can’t sing, Brit hasn’t been able to sign for years, Katie Perry is not a great vocalist .  So who knows.  She has the look.

    But Carly & Tate are the best vocalists and it should be between them for the win.

     I definitely think Carly and Diamond will be successful. I said I didn’t think Cece has been consistent. Didn’t say anything about Carly.

  • Karen C

    I wouldn’t trust Simon’s judgement on what sounds good over headphones

  • Karen C

    I’m glad somebody voted for her..

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

    YES CeCe is voted off. 

     

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

    YES E3 is in Finale!!  

  • Karen C

    That’s why I think Tate might be the most marketable especially if he wins.  Country music also has been much more open to reality show contestants than pop has especially in recent years.   Many country music stars also started their careers older than pop stars would too.

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

     Heck CeCe sings way better than Ke$ha. Is a better performer than Ke$ha
    and is better looking than Ke$ha.  That stunk!

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

    Oh Boo, Diamond had a best sing for her life IMO and deserved to stay!!
