Do you think Khaya deserved to be eliminated? Drop a comment with your thoughts on last night’s shocking results.
Another pair of acts were sent home on The X Factor‘s Nov. 21 episode, and while one seemed like a no brainer — sorry, Tim Olstad, but Carlito Olivero clearly won that sing-off — the other ousting left viewers stunned. I’m talking about Khaya Cohen, the little lady with the big voice who was booted from the competition way before her time.
I’m not saying Khaya deserved to win the entire competition, but there are several acts I’d have dropped before sending her home — starting with Restless Road. Every time those boys two-step their way onto the stage, my eyes go immediately into roll-back mode. They’re like a cowboy-themed Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot that won’t die.
Anyway, back to Khaya: The only bright spot of her elimination was that she didn’t give producers the satisfaction of seeing her cry. As she joined Mario Lopez and mentor Demi Lovato at the center of the giant X-shaped stage, she spoke calmly about her departure. In fact, she didn’t seem too disappointed at all!
“I feel OK,” Khaya told them. “It kind of sucks, but I’m just going to keep going for what I was going for by doing this competition. It was a fun experience, so, thank you.”
‘X Factor’: Who Will Win Season 3?
So, who do I think deserves to win it all this season? It might sound crazy, but I think Lillie McCloud would make for the most satisfying victor.
From the moment she first took the stage, I’ve been under the spell of America’s sexiest grandma. She’s got talent, she’s got passion and she’s earned her place in this competition. To see her sent home before a living, breathing joke like Restless Road would be a tragedy.
