Find out who went home in the not-so-shocking double elimination, and who made it to the semi-finals next week!
The Dec. 6 episode of The X Factor kicked off with a performance from last year’s winner Melanie Amaro, in an attempt to become relevant again. CeCe Frey was then quickly eliminated, which surprised… well, no one. Sorry, but it was definitely time for her and her leopard paint to be sent packing.
As for the bottom two acts, that wasn’t very surprising either. Although 13-year-old Diamond White is super talented, she sang a shaky, whiny version of “I Hope You Dance.” Meanwhile, the girls of Fifth Harmony had their best performance to date with Mariah Carey‘s “Anytime You Need A Friend.”
Even as a fan of them, I was blown away by their harmonies. (Yes L.A. Reid, there were harmonies!) In the end, the judges, aside from mentor Britney Spears, voted Diamond out.
Here’s how the rest of the acts ranked according to viewer votes:
1. Tate Stevens
2. Carly Rose Sonenclar
4. Fifth Harmony
What do you think of the results, HollywoodLifers? Did CeCe and Diamond deserve to be sent home? Were you surprised by the rankings? Drop me a comment and let me know!
