Just watched my DVR listing of this past Wednesday’s X Factor. Hands down, Lillie McCloud was by far the most talented singer. She has my prayer already to win this season’s X Factor!! Her two performances thus far have moved me to tears. What a powerhouse!

After blowing away judges in both auditions, Ashly Williams was eliminated unbelievable. Reading about potential and 1st auditions promising talent etc.
There is not and has not been a better rendition(in any competition) than Ms. Williams’ cover of Whitney Houston’s “I will always love you” (see Simon’s comments), her 4 chair audition was amazing. Yet other contestants with lack-luster performances were kept. Its my take on what is before me as a viewer and its sad cause the same errors were made by the same judge last year.

i totally agree with you. She is a star in the making. poor choice by demi. I think she will regret it. Ashley was also a fan favorite as you hear the booing when demii sent her home. Her rendition of “I will always love you” will stay in my heart forever. the other contestants songs – never.

I think the format of this show is dehumanizing. It is like watching a gladiator scene in which the audience decides who will live or die. Not only do the contestants have to go through the anxiety of getting a “chair”, but then they are subjected to losing it while the audience shouts out derision for some. Why not let all of them sing, and THEN choose the top four?? Very insulting and horrific format.

Demi lovato is not a judge she sent the talented people home, last year Simon made a mistake and brought the girl back and she won.simon please step in and help demo out .

I think Demi blew it tonight. Each year xfactor has a blunder right about at this time in the season. Sending home a talented female singer. And this time Demi executed the xfactor curse and made some poor choices. She almost took out three powerhouse singers. And Simon stepped in at the end to keep Ellona. Ashley and Simone should not have gone home. And we will see if Simon has given up with fixing the Diva attacks that mysteriously appear when the female celebrities are threatened by a young powerhouse girl singer. I think Kelly called her picks wisely. She looked like she truly thought out who her top singers were. My final over 25 choices were the same as Kelly. As for Demi, I love her personality and I think Simon does too. But her picker, was out of Wack. Have to admit, she was a bit off last season too, keeping the girl with the cheeta print on her face. The girls category looked very promising before Demi got her Hands on it.

Do not like new format at all. The contestants need some direction from the judges. The contestants last time were much better. Perhaps because they had input from the mentors. So far most every contestant has underwhelmed me with either weird versions of the song or the wrong song for their voice. Also it should be a competition to find the best performer. Some of the younger girls sent home are much much better than the over 25s that are going to the live shows. Used to really like this show. Now I’m not sure…

Rachel should have been sent home! She blew it! x factor is getting on my nerves already!
if the audience is not pulling for you there, common sense should tell you,eople are NOT going to
