The X Factor results aired live tonight. It was the dreaded elimination show, which brought smiles and tears for the contestants. But who got voted off? Well, there were surprises when it comes to who went home and the ranking board may be a shock to many. Actually, I am extremely annoyed.
All of the contestants really seem likable and most have heart-wrenching stories. But it comes down to who’s the most talented. It was clear that the first act who was sent packing had a bad night, but others were worse. They sent home Lyric 145 at the start of the show, so maybe the judges who said they should stick to “True Rap Music” were right. And their mentor Simon Cowell was surely irritated, but it was strange they did not show his reaction nor ask him for comments. Their departure really did not shock me, but the timing did.
During a short break mega starTaylor Swift performed to break the ice. She is just so darn cute and seems sincere, without being jaded by the music industry just yet. But I really wish she would have performed her new song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“.
Then on to the next contestant to hit the road. Janelle Garcia and Paige Thomas were in the bottom so both had to sing for their lives. They are not really my favorite singers but did not deserve to be there. It was Janelle who was not saved by the judges. But they got it right…Paige was better tonight.
As much as Lyric 145 and Janelle Garcia were not the best singers in the competition and probably would not have won, they left earlier than expected.
It seems that the young teens saved Arin due to his looks and charm, because I predicted he would leave along with CeCe Fry. Boy was I wrong! Or could it be the Producer’s pissing off the viewer’s so they vote. How do we really know they don’t cheat a bit? Well, I’m just saying. If it was the viewer’s they definitely got it wrong.
And as much as Britney Spears sucks as a judge ALL of her team made it through. Overall, it was disappointing to see some of the worst singers of the show stay, but as long as they don’t win the $5 million dollar prize I can live with it. But seriously….CeCe beat out Fifth Harmony, Diamond and Beatrice. Give me a break!!!
See the The X Factor ranking board for 11/15/12 below….Did your favorite rank high? What did you think about the results? It was clear to me Carly sang better than Tate last night…but the country fans obviously are watching. I really do like him too, so happy to see he is doing well but Carly ranked number one on my poll.
