The X Factor had viewer’s on the edge of their seats in the final stretch. It came down to which of the four semi-finalists, Tate Stevens, Emblem3, Carly Rose Sonenclar or Fifth Harmony, would secure a place in next week’s finals.
In a surprise move the show opened with a save….which probably stunned fans across the country. I really thought the first name to be called would be Tate or Carly, and I am probably not alone. But in a shocking twist, it was the girl group Fifth Harmony who nailed it out the gate.
Did anyone see the ugly face Britney Spears made when they called their names? Hilarious! Looks like she could not hide her disgust. But Simon was no better…he looked as though he knew his favorites Emblem3 may be in trouble…his chin seriously doubled up. It was no miracle Simon…Fifth Harmony deserved a spot in the finals.
As usual to break the ice, they had the top four perform first and two special guests singers; Bruno Mars and Bridget Mendler. I just love Bruno and could listen to him forever and he rocked it! Bridget on the other hand was just mediocre.
But in the end, who went home? Well, as soon as they saved Fifth Harmony it was a no brainer. It was obvious Carly nor Tate would be leaving, which left only one choice. Although they are wildly popular, Emblem3 was sent packing.
Did America get it right? Absolutely! While Emblem3 may have had enormous fan support, Fifth Harmony clearly has better vocals and out-shined them in their last performance. The song choice of “Anything Could Happen“, sealed the deal for the girls….and I am truly pleased at the results. The boys should go far in the afterlife of X Factor…so no need for them to worry. Farewell Emblem3!
Who will win The X Factor? Well, it will definitely be a toss-up between Tate and Carly. If it were up to me, Carly would take it all the way. However, with the huge amount of country music fans rooting for Tate, he may just run away with the prize. But wouldn’t it be funny if Fifth Harmony was the dark horse to close in at the end? Any thing could happen…
