Tonight is the night! It’s on! We’re getting a peek at the red carpet with Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian-Odom. We can’t wait! The judges along with Pitbull and One Direction have all arrived.
OMG! They are doing “The Final Countdown” again just like they did one the first season! The top three are rolling up in Escalades, singing “All You Need Is Love”.
Tate Stevens is up on the stage first singing “Bells Will Be Ringing”. Lovely performance for the holiday season. L.A. Reid said Tate has done an amazingly consistent job and he really hopes he can take this thing home. Now we’re getting some awesome words from Tate’s fans and family.
Mario has just informed us that there were 35 million votes cast for the finale. Shortly, we will hear which of the top three contestants came in third place. Now, we’re getting to see Simon Cowell play Mr. Nasty all season to those less talented auditioners.
Fifth Harmony is taking the stage to sing another holiday song. They are performing a rendition of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”. Simon said that he is really proud of them and his fingers are crossed for them. Now, we are hearing from the girls’ families.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT: Fifth Harmony’s official website has a post from today with comments from the girls in the group. Here’s one: “My wish for the New Year is that we all get signed!” Interesting, no?
Carly Rose Sonenclar is taking the stage now to sing her rendition of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. What a great performance! After hearing from Britney Spears, we’re getting some good words about her from her family and friends.
Who is going to be in third place? Stay tuned! The wait is now over — who’s getting eliminated now and is the third place finalist? It’s FIFTH HARMONY!!!! We totally called that one after checking out their website.
Pitbull is taking the stage to sing “Don’t Stop The Party” from his new album “Global Warming.”
And now for some more FILLER! And it’s being followed by a performance of “Kiss You” by One Direction! The crowd is going wild for these guys!
Up next, the final two acts are going to do a duet! They’re performing Miley Cyrus’ hit song “The Climb”. Britney is tearing up!
THE WAIT IS OVER!! Who has won the second season of “THE X FACTOR”? TATE STEVENS!!! Are you shocked at the results? Are you surprised that Carly didn’t win it all? Tate is closing out the show with a performance of Chris Young’s song “Tomorrow”.
