Who will leave the X Factor tonight? First, congratulations to Alex & Sierra for once again hitting #1 on iTunes with “Gravity.” Jeff Gutt is at #5 with his version of “Hallelujah.” Both acts have songs all over iTunes. The A&S version of “Say Something” is still in the Top 10.
I think it’s pretty clear at this point who is going to be the Top 2–Alex & Sierra and Jeff Gutt. They are the most seasoned and consistent of the remaining contestants. No matter how hard Simon tries to shove Restless Road down our throats, they just ain’t ready yet. They’d be nothing without their massively tracked backing vocals. I’ll give Carlito Olivero a hand–he has stepped it up in the past couple of weeks, but his shimmy shaking and camera eye effing can’t make up for mediocre vocals.
In the polls, you guys LOVE Alex & Sierra best, with Jeff Gutt coming in second. Interestingly, you think Restless Road is the act that should go home, but believe it will be Carlito Olivero instead.
Both acts have their issues. Maybe Carlito, as most improved, deserves to move on. Mostly, I don’t care, because there were better acts than both that were sacrificed earlier on. Josh Levi and Ellona Santiago both deserved spots other either Carlito or Restless Road.
My Prediction: Considering the massive pimping Restless Road has gotten from their mentor, Simon Cowell, Carlito Olivero is heading home tonight. Remember: Tonight the elimination will be determined by America’s vote by the first time. No more judges decisions in the competition.
What do you guys think?
