On last night’s episode of The X Factor, we saw the exit of Stacy Francis from the show. She sang her heart out in the final showdown, but in the end, it was Astro who the judges sided with (except for Nicole Scherzinger, natch).
Now, we’ve learned that the show is not only going to air on Tuesday and Wednesday, instead of its usual time, but it’s also going to feature a double elimination on Wednesday night!
