Paulina's Josh Levi: He sang so good on both nights and honestly, it makes his group guys look pathetic.

Paulina's Tim Olstad: It was a good performance. But let's just put it this way. He just doesn't have the X Factor. He's great to be part of a band or backup singer, but he still needs much training in order to be a professional singer. However, I have to say that the chorus of the song was really good. Like, really amazing. I was convinced.

Paulina's Carlito Olivero: If this was indeed his survival song... I would have sent him home straight away. It was so bad when he reached the high note, I CRINGED.

PS: Paulina is such a bad judge.

Paulina's Carlos Guevara: I like the huskiness in his voice, and I would love it if he doesn't eat his words. It was definitely a better performance than the previous night and better than Carlito on the 2nd night.

Kelly's Rachel Potter: I'm pretty sure her time will be done soon if she continues to keep her performance this mediocre. I mean, it sounded good, but something was just missing for me. :( I think it's the fact that some of her words gets eaten up at times and it kind of seemed like she can't hit the notes for my case. :(

Kelly's Jeff Gutt: Not a good survival song, right? It was fantastic vocally though and towards the end, he killed the song. So I guess, it was a good song choice for his voice, but not a really good survival song that can touch the hearts of people.

Kelly's Lillie McCloud: I've got to say, she's going to have her own fair share of the adult audience and fan base, but she needs to grab them fast before they go to the other contestants. If Tate Stevens can win last season, Lillie can as well. So she just really needs to pick the right songs, with the right vocals... she can go far. The song choice was old and out-dated, but vocally it was amazing and she out-sang the song I feel. lol

Simon's Sweet Suspense: I thought it was a down to earth and heart-felt performance. I actually liked it. They made the best out of a really mediocre song, which showcased their voices. But towards the end, I guess their harmonizing should be better.

Simon's Restless Road: I actually thought this was their best performance yet. I have to say their harmonizing is really soothing and nice on the ears, but when they go into their solos, the flaws in the voices just show. I suggest when one person is doing his solo, the other two does back-up harmonizing to cover the flaw in the voice.. otherwise, the performances just seemed mediocre week after week during the solos and only pick up during the chorus when they all harmonize. :(

Demi's Rion Paige: I think Rion redeemed herself with this song. I would have given her a standing ovation as well. Oh my God. It was amazing. My favourite performance of the night and I think the competition is so strong this year! :groan:

MY TOP 3: Jeff, Ellona, Khaya
MY BOTTOM 3: Sweet Suspense, Carlos, Rion
America's Bottom 2: Carlos, Tim
Judges will send Carlos home.

And yes, I know there's a voting error and there's another 13 performances I need to watch. I'll do that tomorrow but I'll still stick by my prediction that Carlos, will, go home. He's so bad and a one-trick pony!

SECOND NIGHT:

MY TOP 3: Rion, Alex & Sierra, Josh/Ellona
MY BOTTOM 3: Carlos, Carlito, Sweet Suspense
America's Bottom 2: Carlos, Tim
Judges will send Carlos home

I think the obvious front runners now are (bold ones are those who have been REALLY OUTSTANDING BOTH NIGHTS):
Demi's:
1. Ellona
2. Rion (first night was mediocre but received the only standing O on the second night)
3. Khaya

Simon's:
1. Alex and Sierra
2. Restless Road
3. Sweet Suspense

Kelly's:
1. Jeff
2 & 3: Rachel / Lillie

Paulina:
1. Josh
2 & 3. Tim / Carlito
4. Carlos

I'm gonna make a huge prediction that Paulina and Kelly's contestants will be exterminated quick until Jeff (Kelly) and Josh (Paulina) are the last two remaining. Khaya may need to break out of being sub-standard as compared to Ellona if she wants to go further in the competition.

My F6 prediction for now: Ellona, Rion, Restless Road, Alex and Sierra, Josh, Jeff

Let's see how this goes!

IMO Rion received a pity standing ovation because the song was fitting for her. :res:

I honestly thought it was the best performance of the night though. I don't like Rion but you gotta give credits when it's due. :/

http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/13/is-x-factor-usa-doomed-axe-hangs-over-show-as-ratings-plummet-below-4m-mark-4185452/

The future of The X Factor USA appears uncertain after its ratings dropped to a new low – and even Nicole Scherzinger made her feelings about the show clear.

While Simon Cowell had predicted big things for the American equivalent of ITV’s Saturday night staple, just 3.6m viewers are reported to have tuned in to the most recent edition of the show, currently in its third series.

And speculation is rife that the show will not return for a fourth run, with some reports even suggesting it could be axed ‘within days’.

Meanwhile X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger has expressed concerns to Cowell – telling the mogul that he needs to focus more on his efforts across the Atlantic.

‘Simon, honey, you need to worry about those ratings in the US!’ she pointed out. ‘Our show is way better than the American one.’

Cowell – who is the only male panellist alongside Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato – had reportedly been aiming to attract 20m viewers to the series when it first began, although ratings topped out at around the 12m mark.

By contrast The Voice USA – currently in its fifth series – pulled in an audience of 10.2m for its most recent edition last week.

The X Factor USA also fell victim to an unfortunate voting glitch during last week’s live show which resulted in all 13 finalists having to perform again the following night in a bid to win votes.

Speculation over the show’s future may also further fuel rumours that Cowell is set to return to the panel of The X Factor UK in 2014, following Gary Barlow’s recent announcement that he would be leaving at the end of the current series.

Kelly's Jeff Gutt: I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight

Wrong song choice. The range is just wrong and it was a song bigger than his vocals. This was his weakest performance so far on the show and he has to pick himself up!

The song is just really repetitive through out and I was hoping for him to stop.

Kelly's Rachel Potter: Alone

I LOVED IT. Simon don't know what he's saying please. Kelly's rebuttal is great. No one in his category can hit those notes so he can't hear it. <333

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.

Kelly's Lillie McCloud: Ain't Nobody

She did felt uncomfortable at times. She worked so hard and I'm sure America can see her efforts. Not the best performance but at least I will remember this.

Demi's Ellona Santiago: I Wanna Dance With Somebody

She tried so hard but I felt it was a miss. Yes I agree with Simon completely, the first two third of the song was just messy.
