After the surprise move of adding Diamond White back to the competition on Wednesday, “The X Factor” once again had to narrow its field to the Top 12 on Thursday (Nov. 8).
So who got the boot? And maybe the more interesting question: Who got the most votes? The show for the first time revealed how the fans voted after Wednesday’s performances, and it didn’t play out exactly as you might think.
First, the bad news: The Bottom 2 came down to CeCe Frey, who sang Cher’s “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” as her save-me song, and Jason Brock, who performed Bonnie Tyler’s ’80s hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
The judges deadlocked — Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato voted Jason out, and L.A. Reid and Britney Spears voted to dismiss CeCe — which turned the decision back to the fans. Jason got fewer votes, so he’s out.
Then came the full results from the audience vote, and maybe the biggest surprise was that Emblem3, widely presumed as one of the favorites, finished sixth. Tate Stevens and Carly Roes Sonenclar took the top two spots, and Diamond White breezed through in fourth place. Here’s the full list:
1. Tate Stevens
2. Carly Rose Sonenclar
3. Vino Alan
4. Diamond White
5. Fifth Harmony
7. Jennel Garcia
8. Paige Thomas
10. Beatrice Miller
11. Arin Ray
12. CeCe Frey
13. Jason Brock
What do you think of the results, at both the top and bottom? Do you like the new wrinkle of revealing how the audience voted?
