I don't know. I heard a theory that Simon wanted a young female vocalist to win this season... and it seems like it's going this way apparently.

I think this season is improving as it goes. Last night's eliminations were spot on necessary. I believe that the consistent Top 3 will end up being our Final 3.

I read an interesting YouTube comment about why Carly Rose Sonenclar was 2nd for the first two weeks. Tate Stevens is the only country singer so naturally he would get all the country singer fans' votes. As other more "pop" artists get eliminated, their votes will probably be going to contestants like Carly Rose Sonenclar. As the season goes on, I think Carly Rose Sonenclar will keep being consistent at number 1 while I see Tate Stevens possibly falling down.

Unless of course it's rigged, which is very much possible. :lol:

ANOTHER DOUBLE ELIMINATION? ??? WHY. It's so dumb.

The theme for this week was number-ones. Paige Thomas was eliminated right away after arguably one of her better performances. It was really surprising. :ascared The two acts that competed in the sing-off were Vino Alan and Diamond White. Vino Alan had probably his worst performance so far so it wasn't that surprising that he found himself in the bottom 3. Vino Alan was sent home by a 3-1 vote, with the only vote not against him coming from his mentor, LA Reid.

Placing:

1st - Carly Rose Sonenclar
2nd - Tate Stevens
3rd - Emblem3
4th - Fifth Harmony
5th - CeCe Frey
6th - Diamond White

Apparently there was only a 1% difference between the top 3. And the only performance I loved...

Carly Rose Sonenclar (who else? :lol:) - "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele

I thought Carly's performance was bad at the beginning... (didn't like it)

I loved Fifth Harmony's performance though.

Paige eliminated = -_-
Vino sent home = -_-

I knew Simon will send Vino home because he's not the type of recording artist that he wants to groom... :lol:

Honestly, I hope Enblem3 (or what's their name) gets eliminated soon. :lol:

This week the acts performed two songs each. The first theme was unplugged songs and the second theme was Pepsi Challenge songs, songs that the public chose for the act. There was another double elimination. CeCe Frey (finally) is sent home! While I admire her fighting spirit, her vocal abilities are not up to par with the competition. Diamond White and Fifth Harmony were in the sing-off and Diamond White was sent home with a 3-1 vote, with the only vote not against her coming from her mentor, Britney Spears.

Placing:
1st - Tate Stevens :cmas30:
2nd - Carly Rose Sonenclar
3rd - Emblem3
4th - Fifth Harmony

Can someone tell me why Tate Stevens is still in the competition? :cmas5 His voice is average at best and his performances are never memorable... I thought last night's bottom three should have consisted of CeCe Frey, Emblem 3 and Tate Stevens. :cmas5 Oh by the way, Diamond White's Pepsi Challenge song was Diamonds by Rihanna... and she started her song in a diamond in the sky... :cmaslol Anyway, onto my favourite performances. Carly Rose Sonenclar had an amazing night last night...

I loved those three performances above too. I don't get Tate Stevens being NO 1 too. I think he's gathering all the votes from the older generation while the younger generation have to split their votes. I think.

Diamond going home BOO. But honestly, I didn't like her Diamonds performance.

Anything could happen! :cmas9

This week, the acts performed two songs to the themes of contestant's choice and songs to get you to the final. What a creative theme. :cmaslol The act with the lowest number of votes was eliminated and there was no showdown or no placement reveal. Emblem3 was eliminated, which was apparently shocking because people thought Fifth Harmony was going to go home? I find that a bit silly because Fifth Harmony had an amazing night. Carly Rose Sonenclar probably had her worst night so far but it was still enough to get into the finale... and Tate Stevens? I just think he sucks all the time. Nothing against country music, but there's nothing special about him IMO.

And there are rumours that L.A. Reid will be leaving after the end of season 2 to focus full time on music!

Anyway, I think Tate Stevens might win because Carly Rose Sonenclar and Fifth Harmony might split the vote, allowing Tate Stevens to win... I hope he doesn't win though.

Here are my favourite performances:

Fifth Harmony - "Anything Could Happen" by Ellie Goulding

I was just watching a program from my local channel cuz it was left on. The time I returned home and saw the screen, I saw someone who has the distinct features of Carly Rose. I was quite sure it was her. The only thing throwing me off were the glasses. But I was totally sure it was her once she started singing with that strong Broadway-like voice of hers. I did some quick research and it.was her! If anyone's interested, the show is The Electric Company. It was about world records.
TARCW: Beast Boy 1 & Raven 1 (Leg 2*13G29S5C*Avatar: The Last Airbender*1st!)
TARJ: Heidi 5 & Vincent 3 (Leg8*2,604PHP+$1*Davao,Philippines*2nd!)

I didn't like Fifth Harmony's Impossible. But I really liked them as a group.

Darn happy that Enblem 3 went home! :cmas9

TATE STEVENS WON?

WHAT THE HECK.

The South rises again :lol: I don't think most people realized how popular country music is in America :lol:

But I'm happy he won, he really deserved it! He seems like a nice guy with a great family. :tup:

ETA: If Simon had had Carly, she would have won, imo.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

I'm not a country music fan, but I can certainly appreciate it... and I don't think he's even a particularly decent country music singer. :cmas5

Anyway, the contestants performed their favourite song of the season, a celebrity duet and their winner song for the first night. For the second night, the contestants performed a Christmas song.

Tate Stevens won. :cmas30: Carly Rose Sonenclar came in 2nd, and Fifth Harmony came in 3rd.

Here are my favourite performances (none of which include Tate :cmas3):

X Factor just had another WGWG winner (White Guy with guitar) just as the past 5 seasons of American Idol, who were all music flops, one disc singer and wouldn't sell any records. :cmas30:

GO CARLY AND 5TH HARMONY!

After listening to the voice's version of Hallelujah... Carly's version was just hmmm, ok. But nevertheless good. But definitely not a 5 million performance.

I still can't believe Carly didn't win. It's like, all season they hyped up her profile and tone down Tate's one. And when Tate won, it just seemed like his win was undeserving in the eyes of many. A little like Adam VS Kris Allen V2.0

I really hated the fact that Tate won as well, but hey, this was like Tate's last chance to make something big in his life whereas 5H and Carly have their whole lives ahead of them.

Was hoping for a 5H win though, but judging by the rankings from the entire season, a 5H win was kinda hopeless.. :cmas4
