On tonight’s episode of “The X Factor USA”, two more contestants bit the dust in a double elimination. It was a shocking elimination for both of the competitors — as they were both good performers. In case you’ve missed the episode, you can read our full recap here.

Paige Thomas was the first contestant on the chopping block, with Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian announcing that America voted her off out of the competition. She changed up her routine last night and RickRolled the nation in a nice performance. Alas, it wasn’t enough to save her from America’s votes and thus, she was sent packing.

In a shocking turn, top three contender Vino Alan was placed in the bottom two alongside Diamond White. Neither performance was as bad as Cece Frey’s rendition of “Lady Marmalade”, yet some nefarious voters keep voting her back in. She was in the bottom two three times already and we were sure that Simon Cowell was right in telling her to pack her bags.

In the sing-off, Diamond kicked things off with Beyonce’s song “I Was Here”. Afterward, Vino belted out the lyrics to “Trouble” by Ray LaMontagne. In the end, three of the four judges voted to save Diamond and send Vino packing.

In the rankings, Carly Rose Sonenclar retained her lead, with Tate Stevens close by in second place. In third, Emblem3 had risen in the ranks, leaving fourth place to Fifth Harmony, who made a nice jump. Cece Frey made a nice jump, as well, but we’re crediting that to “Vote For The Worst” and not actual talent. Diamond fell a notch and rounded out the top six competitors.

What did you think of tonight’s elimination? Were you shocked to see Paige Thomas and Vino Alan eliminated?

    Well – voice from Australia:
    Before the results were in, we thought that Cece, Vino and Tate were “bottom three”. Yes – Tate – rather schmaltzy tacky country songs, nothing special voice, sorry – we don’t have country music bias. (Still like Keith Urban :-))
    We rated Paige above these three… And she’s gone, along with Vino.
    The only truly talented performer (Carly) should take it, providing that moronic Britney doesn’t spoil it.

    Are the judges plain stupid, or the voting is riged and the show hides americas Votes. why in the hell they would send a person who was getting 3rd highest votes for someone who was in the 5 and 6th place because of a poor song choice not because he forgot the words or sang every second line like cici. I think vinos fate was made when he flipped out in practice and they wanted him out. why send the person with a rare sounding Voice that vino has? watch the show THe Voice, all the coachs are trying to find a person with a different voice like Vinos. So im realizing the x factor judges and producers dont have the balls to take a chance and wont go out of there box to introduce a new and different sound to the industry but will play it safe and get sound alikes

    So on that note I would gladly make a deal with Vino and give him my full years wages of 250k to make him a star
