It was Rock Week on ‘The X Factor!’ Who do YOU think deserves to stay?

The top 10 brought their all on The X Factor Nov. 16, but not everyone sang to their full potential. I thought Astro and Josh Krajcik stepped up their their game from last week, but Stacy Francis and even my favorite, Rachel Crow, were less than stellar.

Overall, hearing the mentors’ song choices was interesting because it felt like the majority of them weren’t really rock. For example, I was obsessed with Astro‘s “I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy, but was that REALLY rock? I think not.

Meanwhile, Rachel sang “Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones, which was fantastic, but a little “Disney-esque.” At the end of the day, it wasn’t my favorite performance by her.

The rockiest song I heard tonight was Josh’s rendition of “The Pretender” by The Foo Fighters, which earned him a standing ovation from all the judges. He’s awesome. I can’t wait to see him sell out tours.

Unfortunately, the weakest for me tonight were Lakoda Rayne and Stacy Francis. Who do YOU think will be eliminated? Sound off below!
