The ‘X Factor’ contestant came in fourth, and I think America made the right decision! Good voice, but the song is a bit boring! Listen here!
Marcus Canty‘s newly released single, “Won’t Make A Fool Out Of You,” is a smooth and sensual R&B ballad, BUT it wasn’t very memorable. I have to give the 21-year-old props because he is talented; he sounds like a combination of Usher and Mario. He would be much more memorable if he sings dance hits, just like his X Factor performance of “Pretty Young Thing” — now that was hot, so step up your game, Marcus!
Adorable Marcus Canty may have been voted off X Factor’s semi-finals last night, but he promised he’d be back, and he will be! Marcus told HollywoodLife.com exclusively what he’s love to do next.
If you’ve been watching X Factor then you know that Marcus Canty has a winning smile that lights up your TV screen. Now Marcus admitted to HollywoodLife.com that he’d love to act and his dream would be to star in a remake of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air TV show, which starred Will Smith.

It’s been a fight to the finish! Are you happy with the final three singers on ‘The X Factor’?
After weeks of really intense eliminations on The X Factor, tonight’s semi-final cut didn’t seem too harsh to us. Of course it was sad to say goodbye to yet another contestant, but we’re ready for the finals next week!
It’s down to the semi-finals and I think it’s pretty obvious who will be eliminated before the final three!
After last week’s emotional and shocking elimination, it seemed like there was a big weight lifted off everyone’s shoulders tonight on The X Factor. With all the kids eliminated, the adults came out to play — and I think Marcus Canty will be the one left behind tomorrow, as Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik all brought their A-games.
Boy — Jimmy Kimmel didn’t mince words when he had all four X Factor judges: Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Simon Cowell and L A Reid on his couch last night, Dec 12. Here’s what he ranted about Rachel and what both Nicole and Simon confessed!
Guess what? There is a new enhanced video clip in which you can clearly hear Paula Abdul telling Nicole to vote Rachel Crow off so the decision to let an X Factor contestant go, would go to deadlock. They’re BOTH cowards! Watch video.
Paula and Nicole— There is no place for bland niceness as an X Factor judge. At first, it appeared that Nicole didn’t have the nerve to vote Marcus Canty off when faced with the tough elimination decision before The X Factor semi-finals.
HollywoodLife.com caught up with Simon Cowell after the shocking ‘The X Factor’ elimination Dec. 8, who was not happy with the results of the night
Simon Cowell was less than pleased after losing his contestant, Rachel Crow, in a deadlock judges’ vote last night on The X Factor and said there’s no way Marcus Canty — who was saved over Rachel — will make it through the semi-finals.
After witnessing Rachel Crow’s emotional breakdown when she learned she had been voted off ‘The X Factor,’ I have to wonder if producers should raise the age limit next season
First it was Astro and then it was Rachel Crow…and neither were pretty. When Astro — who was 14 when he started The X Factor and 15 when he left — was placed in the bottom two for the first time, he threw a hissy fit and refused to sing his save song. Only a couple weeks later on Dec. 8, Rachel, 13, was voted off and fell to the floor in a fit of tears. Is all of the pressure of live, reality TV too much for kids to handle?
Was it America’s sweetheart or the triple threat who got the boot before the semi-finals?
The X Factor results were as dramatic as ever Dec. 8. After an incredible night of performances, it was anyone’s guess who would be in the bottom two. Unfortunately, we had to lose someone — and Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty were on the chopping block.
I thought I had my favorites figured out, but now I think rapper/singer Chris Rene might be the dark horse of the competition!
What a night on The X Factor! After last week’s abysmal Michael Jackson night, the final five performers needed to redeem themselves, and they did just that. The first half of the show consisted of “dance hits,” which were hit and miss, but the second half was a plot twist — the singers had only 24 hours to pick a song of their choosing to perform the following night — and honestly, they all shined. Sadly, Rachel Crow didn’t thrill me as much as usual — I predict she’ll be in the bottom. However, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene are all strong contenders for first place, in my book.
Three of the younger contestants fell in the bottom of tonight’s shocking episode of ‘The X Factor!’ Do YOU agree with who got the boot?
After weeks of complaints, it seems the mass majority of The X Factor audience is going to be happy. Their problem child got the boot — and none of the favorites, including Melanie Amaro or Rachel Crow landed in the bottom three. So what went down?
Nearly all of the contestants — including my favorites Josh Krajcik and Rachel Crow — bombed this week, leaving Melanie Amaro to shine
This week on The X Factor, the contestants tried to pay homage to the late Michael Jackson by
butchering singing his hits. Unfortunately, nearly every singer hit below the mark, which felt incredibly awkward considering Michael’s family — including his three children, Blanket, Paris and Prince — were sitting in the audience. Thankfully, the Jacksons were a diplomatic group and had nothing but positive things to say about the show, although the bored expressions on their faces spoke volumes. In fact, the performances were so painful, I’ve included the only one worth watching after the jump, just so you don’t have to sit through all of them if you haven’t already. You’re welcome.
Unfortunately, we had to lose two contestants from ‘The X Factor’ Nov. 23. Do YOU agree with who went home?
We hate to say it, but all three of these contestants have had a big ‘x’ on them from the very beginning — and not in the good way. LeRoy Bell was sweet, but forgettable compared to his younger competition; Lakoda Rayne was hot, but unpolished and Marcus Canty got lost in the shuffle. That said, it was still hard to see not one, but two, acts get eliminated tonight.
Josh Krajcik gave the best performance of the season on ‘The X Factor’ Nov. 22. He may have just become this year’s winner!
A day earlier but equally as intriguing, tonight’s The X Factor was all about “giving thanks.” However, leave it to Josh Krajcik‘s performance to make me thankful to have The X Factor as a staple on my DVR.
