The top sixteen took to the live stage for the first time on the second season of “The X Factor USA” to prove their worth…unfortunately, only twelve contenders emerged victorious enough to make it through to the next stage in the competition.
Four competitors were eliminated on Thursday night’s show, leaving the top twelve! After each judge’s acts performed, they had to choose two to put through to the next round. Then, the remaining two acts had to perform in a sing-off to win the right to get through.
Demi Lovato saved Jennel Garcia and Paige Thomas, leaving Cece Frey and Willie Jones to sing for survival. Cece emerged victorious with her performance of “Out Here On My Own”, but Willie was sent home.
Performing second was L.A. Reid’s group of Over 25s. He chose to save Vino Alan and Tate Stevens, leaving David Correy to vie against Jason Brock in their sing-off. Jason busted out with Whitney Houston’s “One Moment In Time”, which saved him another chance to sing again.
Britney Spears’ acts performed next and she chose to save Beatrice Miller and Carly Rose Sonenclar. This left Arin Ray and Diamond White to perform against each other. Britney chose to save Arin and send Diamond home.
Simon Cowell’s groups rounded up the end of the live shows. He chose to save Emblem3 and Lyric145, leaving 1432 (formerly LYLAS) to perform against Sister C for Simon’s vote. He then chose to save 1432, but put it to a public vote as to what their new name should be.
What do you think 1432 should change their name to?
