The X Factor‘s final six contestants each sang a song by a favorite diva and a stripped down song on the Dec. 4 episode, truly getting a chance to show off their vocals. Read on for HollywoodLife.com‘s take on the evening, including our favorite acts!
‘The X Factor’: Top Six Perform Two Songs Each
Restless Road started the night off by singing a low-key version of “Red” that could have used a little more energy. For their other song, they sang “Wake Me Up” with much tighter harmonies that Simon Cowell praised.
Get the Kleenex out! Rion Paige sang an emotional rendition of “See You Again,” and then a gorgeous version of “Glass” that made Demi Lovato cry. She couldn’t hold back her tears, and had to dry her eyes with a tissue! ”Every word of that song is what you’re about,” Demi said.
Jeff Gutt first sang “Without You” which really showed off a different side of his range — but Simon called his personality “boring!” He also showed off his guitar skills when he sang “Daniel,” but Demi called his performance “stale.” Ouch!
Ellona Santiago shone during her sassy performance of “Applause,” but with a song like that, you’ve got to bring it — and she totally did! Her showstopping second song was “If I Were A Boy” and brought down the house immediately by starting the song a cappella! Paulina Rubio said she felt like she was watching a star.
Alex & Sierra shocked Kelly Rowland when they belted out “Say My Name,” which was their sexiest performance yet! Sierra also played the piano when they sang “Say Something,” cementing their status to me as the cutest, most talented couple to ever appear on the show!
Carlito Olivero sang the spicy song “Let’s Get Loud,” but it fell flat for all the judges. His next song was “Stand By Me” that was much better, but was still questionable for the judges, since Simon said he doesn’t want to lose Carlito! Will he still be standing tomorrow night?
HollywoodLifers, which act(s) did you love most tonight — and which do you think deserve to be the next two voted off? Drop a comment with your thoughts on the season’s current standings.
