It’s a night of giving thanks on tonight’s performance episode of The X Factor USA. Tonight, the top nine contestants will be performing — in an effort to be saved by your votes from tomorrow night’s double elimination! In case you’ve missed last week’s shows, read our performance recap, watch the videos and read about the elimination.

We’ve already said goodbye to Stacy Francis, after it was down to her and Astro in the final showdown. Astro almost didn’t perform, because he didn’t feel that he belonged in the final two. Most of you have said that his attitude alone shouldn’t allow him a spot to continue on the show, but we’ve heard that he has since calmed himself down.

Check out all of tonight’s performance videos! Who do you think has the “X” factor?

Until then, enjoy this video showing which food the contestants enjoy for Thanksgiving the most, along with the photos below! But keep checking back, as we’ll be giving you up-to-the-minute coverage of the show! (Video after the jump due to auto-play)

Update: Astro just tweeted that his good luck charm is in the house. He said, “Just got my good luck charm in the building! Momma Astro is here!” He also tweeted that he’s wrestling with his little sister. Check out the photo.

RECAP:

Tonight’s theme is that the top nine is dedicating their songs to those who’ve made a difference or are inspirational in their lives. The act that scores the lowest amount of votes will be eliminated right off the bat on tomorrow night’s show. Afterward, the two acts with the lowest scores will go head-to-head in the final showdown.

L.A. Reid commented on AstroGate, saying that he commented on the situation the way he was raised to.
