Join me!

The Top 12 join each other on stage for an 80′s medley (Tribute to Lou Reed). Jeff Gutt did not sound good on his solo line. Rion’s was too low for her. Lillie killed her little run at the end though. That was hot.

Will we get a “Sing for your life” tonight?

We get some filler sponsored by Herbal Essences. It’s literally one of the worst product fillers I think I’ve ever witnessed.

The First Act Going Home Is: SWEET SUSPENSE
WOW. Did NOT see that coming. Neither did Simon. The audience is booing.

Two more acts will sing for survival. Selena Gomez and Fifth Harmony still need to sing.

Selena Gomez performs. I can tell she’s singing live. That’s a good thing at least.

More Results!
1st Act Safe: Carlito Olivero (Simon is pissed)
2nd Act Safe: Josh Levi
3rd Act Safe: Rion Paige
4th Act Safe: Jeff Gutt
5th Act Safe: Restless Road
6th Act Safe: Tim Olstad (HOLY HELL)
7th Act Safe: Ellona Santiago
8th Act Safe: Lillie McCloud
9th Act Safe: Alex and Sierra

Rachel Potter will sing against Khaya Cohen. Oh shit. Neither of these girls deserve to go home. I’m not sure Rachel can beat Khaya.

Fifth Harmony is about to sing. Some of them… still aren’t great singers. They should have performed to track.

Demi says neither of the vocalists deserve to be in the bottom 2 as she introduced Khaya. I agree.

Khaya Cohen- Don’t Give Up On Me by Joe Cocker
Interesting song choice. She’s singing her face off. I’m worried that she’s lost her spunk and stage presence because she’s afraid of going home, but she’s channeled all that unused energy into her vocal instead. She cracks a bit when she goes into her head voice. I liked that. Rachel has a really tough act to beat.

Kelly teases that Rachel has something big up her sleeve planned for next week.

Rachel Potter- From This Moment On
Really. Really Rachel. Maybe she didn’t think she’d be singing for her life tonight. Kelly looks worried. She knows this is not as good as Khaya. Sorry Rachel. I thought you’d be doing better in the competition, but I think you’re gone. There’s pitch problems all over. To be fair, she’s modulated into another key at least three times. It was a rangier song than Khaya’s pick, but sometimes it’s better to nail an easy song, than fail at a harder song.

Kelly is sending home Khaya. She plays around a LOT before she says it.
Paulina is sending home Rachel.
Demi is sending home Rachel.
Simon could send it into deadlock by picking Khaya.
Simon is sending home Rachel. (he has a lighter in his hand, he can’t wait to smoke, lol)

Rachel Potter is leaving the X-Factor along with Sweet Suspense. Crazy results.

Join me next week for the Top 10… which still inexplicably includes Tim Olstad.

 
  • yaddabing

    Aw.

    Where’s the judges’ big epic entrance??

  • Derrick Johnson

    That was kinda meh to listen to and i swear Lillie looks like a cheap version of Whitney Houston especially with that hair.

  • scoobynacks

    Not that it’d be 100% accurate, but why is DialIdol not up to date with X Factor? It’s stuck on the S2 finale.

  • ajr86

    Based on that recap clip it looks like Carlito, Tim and Rachel are bottom 3

  • yaddabing

    omg. this is embarrassing. product placement AND singing syco acts.

  • shell29

    I’m cringing.

  • carla

    get that promo fifth harmony.

  • ajr86

    Why should I care about the contestants hairstyles? Just perform well please

  • yaddabing

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAA SIMON

  • Derrick Johnson

    Wow not suspecting that

  • ajr86

    Sweet Suspense?? SHOCKER

  • carla

    oh wow. that’s not something I expected.

  • shell29

    Wow…I wasn’t expecting that.

  • yaddabing

    Don’t worry, Simon will probably still bring you back next week.

  • Matthew Woods

    WHAT????

  • Derrick Johnson

    I still think they should stay together though

  • Bugme Nomor

    That poor girl in the middle was crushed.

  • Eric Ascher

    It’s a shock, but honestly they weren’t good. So I’m not upset.

  • carola99

    WHAT???? Really? COme on!
    If things continue to go like this, Tim Olstad will win this show…

  • carla

    yeah, I don’t think they’d become good vocalists out of sudden. But there are worse there.

  • ajr86

    Hopefully Restless Road is next to go

  • carola99

    I hope so too, they are just not good. But I think tonight Carlito is toast.

  • ajr86

    Groups always have been underdogs. Lyric 145 also left too early last year.

  • Kamokunz

    I knew Sweet Suspense would rank pretty low, but NOT this low. I expected them to last at least a week or two more. Looks like groups are still not gaining votes as they should.

  • Jason Gorny

    first shocking elimination of the season.

  • Kamokunz

    NO.

  • Jason Gorny

    i know!! i miss that :(

  • ajr86

    But they had potential to be in even better than 5th harmony.

  • Jason Gorny

    hopefully we will see that later when the acts are reintroduced

  • elliegrll

    Individually the member of Sweet Suspense aren’t as good as the members of 5H, but collectively they sound more like a group than 5H ever has. I could see them as a current pop group, and getting airplay. Too bad that they won’t get noticed, since they are on this show.

  • bannanafish

    Not surprised. Their version of Mickey was very karaoke, and why does a girl group need 4 backup singers?

  • Jason Gorny

    Do you think 5H is better now?

  • ajr86

    Did Selena Gomez just wake up? She seems so not into it. Way off key.

  • elliegrll

    Sometimes. But they still don’t seem to be a cohesive group.

  • carla

    we don’t know how sweet suspense sounded together because they always had other voices singing with them.

  • Eric Ascher

    That lady behind Mario’s face said it all. Not live, and not good.

  • Bugme Nomor

    I think she was concentrating too much on the choreography. Ironic since I think the song included a lyric about just letting go.

  • Jason Gorny

    Same. I feel sad for them tho. IMO eliminations are the worst part of any competition show. people work hard to make their dreams come true and it’s all over in a moment.

  • shell29

    The 5H girls seem to be everywhere these days…has Simon already forgotten about Emblem3? What’s up with those guys?

  • Jason Gorny

    Touring with Selena

  • Damien Roberts

    Meh…I think Restless Road is pretty popular, and I think Alex and Sierra are more popular than the show imagined.

  • carla

    They’re touring with Selena Gomez and released their album in the Summer. They have a single but it’s stalling. 5H released their EP recently.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’ll bet the Tim survives another week.

  • Matthew Woods

    Carlito is SAFE???

  • ajr86

    Carlito safe?? Bye bye Tim.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Will Simon change the rules and find some way to bring back SS? lol

  • ajr86

    Rachel is probably in trouble. Maybe Lilly.

  • shell29

    That’s good to hear. I wasn’t crazy about them while they were on the show but their music has grown on me.

  • Kamokunz

    Tim or Khaya I think.

  • shell29

    I hope you’re right.

  • Kamokunz

    YES! RR.

  • vd88

    I was actually hoping it be Rion.

  • Matthew Woods

    TIM OLSTAD IS SAFE???? oh NOOOOOO

  • Kamokunz

    OMG TIM?????

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yep. I knew that Tim would be saved by America. lol

  • shell29

    Ugh…Tim is safe.

  • ajr86

    Tim and Carlito safe?? And Sweet suspense out??

  • Kamokunz

    Khaya or Lillie

  • vd88

    WTF Tim Olstad is safe

  • Kamokunz

    Rachel??

  • betheguy

    Simon’s surprise face at the first elimination was probably the same face he made before he threw away America’s votes last week. “Sweet Suspense? No that can’t be right. I demand a recount.”

  • shell29

    Watch him be Top 3.

  • Matthew Woods

    Khaya VS Rachel??? oh NO this is SO WRONG

  • Jason Gorny

    wow interesting bottom 2

  • fuzzywuzzy

    These 2 being in jeopardy is a bit of a surprise.

  • ajr86

    Khaya and Rachel in the bottom 3 is a travesty. America got this wrong.

  • vd88

    This is actually a very surprising result show, I’m kinda shocked really. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I wouldn’t be surprised, given the demo of the audience. lol

  • betheguy

    maybe strategically so? for ratings?

  • carla

    this is the most exciting this show has been

  • Jason Gorny

    are they still doing the leaderboard?

  • Kamokunz

    Sorry but I hope Rachel beats Khaya, I always think Khaya is too robotic, she is not comfortable on stage enough.
    Though, Simon may send Rachel home simply to eliminate a threat for Restless Road.

  • Guest

    I heard they are.

  • ajr86

    It’s hard to know who votes in these shows anymore. The 3 acts who got the lowest votes were from the better ones last night.

  • scoobynacks

    It’s against all odds. *facepalm* Seriously, that song’s supposed to be poison. How’s Paulina not losing an act tonight?

  • kcostell

    On American Idol “Against All Odds” had a reputation for two things. Pretty much every single performance of it was awful, and pretty much every single performance of it, no matter how bad, still got the singer safely through to next week (the one exception being Paige’s laryngitis-infused performance that’s tied on WNTS for worst in the history of the show).

    Maybe the same tradition carries over here?

  • vd88

    let’s hope not

  • shell29

    I’m getting this bad feeling that we’re going to see a Tate Stevens trajectory with Tim.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I think that Rachel’s “scream” is responsible for her bottom 2 placement, and Khaya seems to be overly confident considering her abilities.

  • Nedsdag

    Wow! I watch basketball and all hell breaks loose. Tim & Carlito are safe??? Sweet Suspense is out??? WTF???

  • betheguy

    good point. don’t want to split the country vote.

  • Bugme Nomor

    They are all young female acts. Most likely passed on by their peers.

  • Damien Roberts

    Bye Rachel…Khaya is beyond safe.

  • carola99

    WHAT ? This is totally staged. No way Carlito and TIm are safe..

  • Kamokunz

    I sure hope they are. I like them both.

  • Guest

    exactly what I was thinking!

  • ajr86

    Bottom 3 should have been Tim, Carlito and Restless Road. I guess female hormones are at work here.

  • scoobynacks

    Eh their dream was to be solo artists. I’m sure they were happy to keep this going, but they’re 14, 16, and 17. Even 5 years from now they’ll still be young artists. Nothing’s over.

  • vd88

    To add to it, Tim is boring as hell, like how is he safe?

  • betheguy

    ugh. to think 5H wasn’t even in the top half of their season (until the end.) Where has all the talent gone?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    There may be something in the “fine print” that allows the show to ignore certain vote totals. lol

  • Kamokunz

    OMG, 5H, they ran out of BREATH! Too much dancing there.

  • lila6089

    5th harmony doesn’t sound very good in their solo spots

  • Valarie

    My favorites have always been guys from soft, alternate or hard rock. But, there is no way Jeff Gutt should still be there, while one of these two talented girls goes home. Gutt is not as good as Durbin, Cook, Bice, Daughtry, or Lambert.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Clearly, I am not a member of their target demo. lol

  • carla

    so fun! Lauren has grown up lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    So glad that Khloe is gone. lol

  • betheguy

    they are so much better than this i thought? their acoustic covers on youtube are honestly unbelievable.

  • Jason Gorny

    cool performance.

  • Jason Gorny

    they may be tired. they were in nyc yesterday and probably flew to LA this morning.

  • Amy Beth

    I assume you meant threat, not treat!

  • RidersDX

    Surprised by pleased to see Sweet Suspense leave. I’ve been fuming ever since they were kept over Roxxy Montana. =X Don’t agree with Rachel and Khaya, but I hope Rachel goes.

  • carola99

    I am kind of thinking all these results are being staged for ratings tonight

  • scoobynacks

    Was the country vote really taking Rachel seriously though? She’s trying to go country but she’s fudging her background isn’t she? I thought she had Broadway ties. She can keep trying to make it in Nashville or go back to NYC. She’s got options after this in both places. They seem to prefer it when people start off trying to make it in country, not start elsewhere and then change genres.

  • Matthew Woods

    Rachel is history Khaya has MUCH more commercial potential

  • lola

    I was confused on who were the dancers and who were Fifth Harmony

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It will be interesting to see the leaderboard results (if they are still doing that).

  • elliegrll

    As MJ said, Tim is a long lost member of the Osmonds. People who vote for AI and the XF are always going to vote for people like that. Ex., Angie Miller.

  • http://talkinaboutmovies.blogspot.com Brenoga

    so 5th harmony performed……. sometimes during that song. The chorus was DEFINITELY not live. and some of the girls should actually not have sung live AT ALL. Sad, because I actually grew to like these girls a lot after the show, i did not expect that at all..

  • Kamokunz

    Many people don’t like Rachel’s voice, and she was unpopular since 4 chairs challenge. Many people also think Khaya is faking her voice, including me. This wasn’t as shocking as Sweet Suspense eliminated.

  • SDC69

    If Rachel goes I will be pissed

  • Nedsdag

    I never warmed to Sweet Suspense, but they certainly were not the worst act last night.

  • scoobynacks

    Yeah I don’t like people losing or gaining momentum just because people want to either back a winner or stop trying so hard for a person that’s perceived to be a loser. Let people guess from iTunes charts. Tell them that iTunes purchases are factored into the voting because it takes commercial viability into account. People are willing to pay for their single. That should matter.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Tim winning would be the end of the X-Factor.

  • Kamokunz

    I think it was the bed.

  • shell29

    I could see Simon sending Rachel home but considering she was in the bottom three this week, is she that much of a threat?

  • Matthew Woods

    get ready to get pissed

  • ajr86

    If Kelly is rooting for Khaya, you know it’s curtains for Rachel.

  • Nedsdag

    Rachel’s a goner. She is too old.

  • Max

    Interesting observation. Guess you just have to be a boy now.. Not even cute.. Tim?

  • Amy Beth

    I’d check Paulina’s dressing room for voodoo dolls.

  • Matthew Woods

    Khaya aint going NOWHERE

  • ajr86

    Khaya is singing phenomenal. She doesn’t deserve to be in this position or to be sent home.

  • vd88

    I agree I was never into Sweet Suspense but there were certainly other acts who deserve to go before them.

  • Max

    She’s also whatv16 & Rachel has been performing & recording a long time. It’sunfair for tthese inexperienced true amateur teen to verify compared to people doing this linger

  • elliegrll

    Wow Khaya has an amazing voice.

  • ajr86

    Winning performance by Khaya! She better stay and end up in the finale.

  • shell29

    If Khaya goes home tonight it’s a travesty.

  • Nedsdag

    No Judge’s Houses may have hurt Sweet Suspense. Remember Fifth Harmony came on at JHs and people were able to see their chemistry and they built a following.

  • elliegrll

    She’s leaving on the night after she stopped pretending to be a country singer.

  • dawnage01

    Daaang..Khaya SANG. Her save-me performance wasn’t 100% perfect, but it was a thousand times better than Rachel P’s screechy version of “Alone.”

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yep. I can see Tim going far.

  • Sue tiedemann

    I am hoping Khaya will not be sent home. I didn’t expect her to be in this position.

  • Nedsdag

    People, KHAYA IS NOT GOING HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    So do the coaches decide who goes home?

  • Matthew Woods

    goodbye Rachel

  • shell29

    Yes.

  • ajr86

    Rachel doesn’t deserve to be sent home but it’s her bad luck that she’s going up against the awesome Khaya.

  • Matthew Woods

    NO contest this is a pitchy MESS

  • scoobynacks

    They have in the past and will if there’s a majority, but if it’s deadlocked it’s lowest vote getter who goes.

  • lola

    Doesn’t really matter who goes home. Nobody is a future star on this show.

  • lila6089

    Rachel is doing a better job than Khaya

  • lola

    ouch!

  • iluvai

    Rachel has a beautiful voice, but I think she picked the wrong song.

  • scoobynacks

    Oh dear, that note was atrocious.

  • ajr86

    Did a mentor ever send home one of their acts? I think Kelly might be a first.

  • Sue tiedemann

    OMG! Rachel is doing fantastic. Actually, I think both of these girls should have been in the top 10. I think they are both fantastic. So many others that should have gone instead are left.

  • vd88

    I feel like Rachel is holding back, has she given up or something?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Thanks, now I remember.

  • teekee

    No contest.

  • shell29

    I feel bad for Rachel but Khaya won this sing off. Yikes, poor Rachel’s voice is breaking.

  • Kamokunz

    Oh looks like there is no time for ranking, this is good.

  • iluvai

    Rachel seemed nervous to me. It made me sad for her.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I enjoyed Khaya’s performance more than Rachel’s.

  • Damien Roberts

    Agreed again…last season was so anti-climactic when we knew by top 7 that it was gonna come down to Carly and Tate.

  • lola

    I hate these judges talking!!!!! Just say it!!!!

  • ajr86

    WTF Kelly? Based on this performance, you are sending home Khaya??

  • Damien Roberts

    Judges never send home their own act.

  • scoobynacks

    I think she knows Khaya’s staying so she doesn’t want the vote to be unanimous against her act.

  • Nedsdag

    No video tribute for Rachel?

  • Jason Gorny

    poor rachel. definitely a weird night for x-factor

  • SDC69

    As if I will ever watch X factor again after 1 of the only 4 that can sing is sent home:(

  • ajr86

    No rankings? No goodbye package? Maybe next time don’t have Selena wasting precious time.

  • tammy

    Aw man, it sucks that Fifth Harmony had so much backtrack playing during their performance, they usually SING Me and My Girls much better during their live shows with just their voices, and basically the same choreography.
    I also wish they did Better Together or Who Are You instead… but it was nice to see them back on national tv haha :)

  • scoobynacks

    I remember at least one time where both acts were from the same judge and the act they voted against was saved by the other judges. Talk about an awkward mentor section the next week.

  • Matthew Woods

    Selena was supposed to be last week but the snafu delayed her

  • Dexter

    lol, I wonder if these judges actually believe what they say or it’s all just show biz.

  • Anny_nanny

    This show is getting interesting. Top-3 will be Tim, Lillie and Rion. I hope Simon will be hospitalized. Due to the excess of happy emotions.

  • iluvai

    Well that was depressing, geez. Good luck to Rachel and great job Khaya.

  • Bugme Nomor

    Alex and Sierra will be there because young girls are in love with their being in love.

  • shell29

    I don’t know why Demi and Kelly wasted so much time…they knew they weren’t going to send their acts home.

  • Damien Roberts

    Yeah…but generally not gonna happen if one of them is from another team.

  • carola99

    Apparently all the grandmas did vote for Tim and will continue to do so.
    Ughh..

  • Kamokunz

    Or worse, Tim, Carlito, Josh, and Paulina becomes winning mentor…

  • ajr86

    True. But she doesn’t have to lie about her decision.

  • Dexter

    Well, Tim did have that celeb chick supporting him too.

  • Dexter

    Well, could care less about either two but Khaya gave a better performance tonight.

  • ajr86

    If I remember correctly it was on season 1 with Paula sending home her group Stero hogs but Intensity ended up going home.

  • Nedsdag

    It’s Sarah Hyland of Modern Family’s fault. She’s a Tim fan. Maybe next week, he could get Kaley Cuocco since her sister left The Voice.

  • Joanie Yan

    This show is so horrible and irrelevant it doesn’t surprise me who gets voted off because the number of people who vote must be very small. Hopefully this will be the last season of it.

  • Whatiswrongwithus

    No leaderboard???! Then we will never know who is leading damn!

  • carola99

    How can Sarah like him? Damn it. Anyways now I can totally see him in the finale and who knows? He might win.

  • Kamokunz

    That was really lame, like what do they have to decide, geez, it was supposed to be Simon’s and Paulina’s job.

  • Anny_nanny

    That would be epic! It is a pity that the VFtW does not live.

  • Derrick Johnson

    i am more shocked that people are shocked about this. we all know this season is a travesty

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It’s that insecure, earnest quality and lack of confidence. The “nice young man” thing. Gets ‘em every time. lol

  • Candy

    Those qualities are the very thing that keep these ‘artists’ from becoming popular in the mainstream. It’s a shame but I think we all know that talent contests generally don’t actually reward talent.

  • elliegrll

    Maybe that’s why it took her forever. She has to back her own act, but it must have been hard to say that Rachel did a better job tonight than Khaya.

  • Anny_nanny

    Tim for the win! Funeral agent must be in the final of this wonderful season.

  • Whatiswrongwithus

    Please …. I hope Restless people isn’t leading in votes. ..really that would just be super depressing.

  • lola

    Been thinking the same thing about VFTW!!!

  • Anny_nanny

    Why not? They can win, and will release country album under the wise leadership of Simon. Simon’s great expert of country music, if anyone here forgot about it.
    LOL *hiccups*

  • scoobynacks

    I just looked and if you type in X Factor on iTunes, the top 2 are Alex & Sierra songs, the next two are Restless Road. A&S I get, RR? Sorry, the low voice out of nowhere just sounds jarring.

  • scoobynacks

    Got into the sherry again? ;)

  • carola99

    Now it wouldn´t surprise me that Tim would win the whole thing.
    Talk about Simon´s biggest nightmare if that happens. Good luck marketing him.

  • scoobynacks

    Ah but which Tim? Olstadt or Olsen? We’ll know he’s a threat if Paulina gets his name right.

  • Amy Beth

    Maybe Khaya wouldn’t have been in the bottom if Simon hadn’t described her as unlikable and walled off.

  • Dana Rimons

    I, for one, am GLAD they didn’t do the stupid leaderboard. I would rather not know that someone like Tim is leading in votes because it would take the interest out of watching weekly. I would rather the judges and all of us be surprised on a weekly basis by the bottom vote getters and just take it from there.

    But alas, the leaderboard will probably return next week when they have less filler and guest performers.

  • guest

    I’m not shocked because I know how America would vote. Since season 1-2 and where are the winners now?! Hopefully this time support the act whom you think could sell records..has personality.. stage presence and all and esp an act who is VERSATILE singer that any song will be given she/he or they can pull it off.. see you next week!

  • guest

    I don’t think so..

  • ny4carrie

    Wow i hope Demi’s nasty comment last night did not turn voters off of rachael? While I am pissex at Demi- Rachel did nothing wrong and did not deserve to go home.

  • Kamokunz

    But it’s true.

  • LeoCS

    At this point Simon should only think about keeping the contestants who can bring more viewers. Who’ll win isn’t relevant anymore.

    The boys, except for Jeff Gutt, seem to be totally boring and mediocre, but if they can keep the viewers, well, so be it.

  • carola99

    I think voters rallied for Tim and Carlito because they both got very nasty comments. That´s what usually happens.
    And unfortunately two better acts get sent home. Sucks..

  • Garrett Clayman

    Omg this fucking sucks I was actually obsessed with Sweet Suspense, they couldve been contenders like 5h were last year thats a bummer

  • LeoCS

    “Fifth Harmony is about to sing. Some of them… still aren’t great singers. They should have performed to track.”

    Overall they’re much better singers than the girl group this year. You almost can’t compare..

  • girlygirl

    Judging from XF’s awful ratings, it’s unlikely that there actually is any contestant(s) this season that can bring in viewers.

  • Vetle

    This is kinda sad actually. Looking at X Factor UK and Australia, the concept has so much potential. They just messed it up big time for the US version. The first season did not quite connect for me because of the contestants and the judges’ synergy (Nicole is actually good in the UK). Last season had talent, but for me, the rankings was stupid and some acts made it way further than they should have – plus they had only 8 weeks of lives instead of 10. And this season has at least some talent as well, people just aren’t emotionally invested in the contestants. Really anyone can be at risk. They really messed up the schedule this year, which kinda messed up last season as well.

  • CharlyBaltimore

    Alex & Sierra is the only reason I’m watching this season.

  • Pat H

    Rachel is very unlikable. Not surprised at all!!

  • Jon Glass

    I really am a fan of this show and I have always stuck next to it and fought for it, but after tonight. I am not happy. Rachel did not deserve to go. It’s not fair. She gas great stage presence.

  • Jon Glass

    and not to sound rude, but Rion is still there? She is terrible.

  • hayes

    I feel bad for Mario. He shoulda quit right there. Hahahah

  • Garrett Clayman

    its not like anyone votes over the phone anymore

  • Shannen

    Wow I think Simon blew Sweet Suspense’s chances with that Hey Mickey song. I was starting to like them more and more each week as I could see them growing and would like to have seen them stick around for another few weeks or more.
    As for the other two girls in the bottom, based on last nights performance neither of them should have been there. Rachel’s Alone (minus her scream) was in my top 3 fav performances of last night.

  • http://www.glitzngrits.com/ AlesheaDominique

    Dang, my final 4 prediction has already been ruined.

    Trainwreck live show. How the heck is Tim Oswald still there? And to think that Paulina even struggled to keep him during the Four Chair challenge and had to eliminate a more marketable act, Al Calderon. Why can’t the producers in American just watch the UK and Australian versions? That’s how a proper X-Factor live shows are done.

  • Blackbeat

    Well at least they’re more marketable than Tate Stevens.

    The big downside of last season was that they revealed the voting rankings each week. It made people want to vote more for the person who got #1 spot regardless of not having The X-Factor.

    Maybe the VFTW people are now working under cover for this show and trying to sabotage it by putting through Tate Stevens and Tim to the live shows? LOL

    Well…all the boys and boy bands are safe…why expect a different result?

    I don’t even watch the show live but the check the recaps and videos the next day… then I’ll watch On Demand if I can’t find something else to do or watch.I don’t really care for the show. I have no idea who is voting but it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t seem like any of the contestants go anywhere noticeable. 5th Harmony seems to be the only one that I’ve noticed. I like Kelly a lot, Demi most of the time, Paulina is in her own zone aka Paula and Simon’s stchick is old… FOX needs to cancel this pronto (Oh, and Mario always does a good job but he is a seasoned professional).

    I’ll watch this show if there isn’t anything better on TV. Usually I come here for the recaps and videos. I wonder if it will be cancelled or if Simon just shuts it down?

    She looks like Diana Ross to me

    I’m a grandma as you put it and I would never vote for Tim. I like Alex and Sierra the best. I also liked Rachel and was sorry to see her go. She was my second choice after Alex and Sierra.

  • snowleopardlady

    Give me a break. She’s only 29.

    Not surprised that Sweet Suspense was eliminated or that Tim was saved. The backup singers sang more than they did in their performance! Tim isn’t nearly as boring as some make him out to be. Plus, if you like ballad singers like Buble, Grobin, etc. he has that category all to himself. I wouldn’t vote for him but I can see why some would, and he isn’t splitting votes with anyone. He might actually stick around for a few more weeks.

    I was really surprised by the other 2 acts in the bottom 3. I thought it would be Carlito and Rion.

    As others have said, the US version of the X Factor is nowhere near as good as the UK or Australian versions.

    You seriously

    You seriously think some of the girls in 5H aren’t good singers? Melinda Doolittle would beg to differ. As she said on Reality Watch last year, “All 5 of those heffas can sing.” Go watch their acoustic videos on Youtube or their performance of the national anthem from the NASCAR race last weekend. Their talent as individuals and as a group can’t be denied.
