Hey M Girls,
It's been an exciting few weeks for all of the X Factor contestants! With two brand new live shows tonight and tomorrow, check our recap of everything that went down the first week:
All sixteen of the contestants gave really strong performances, considering it was their first live show ever! The theme was "Made in America" and the judges gave their teams some tough songs to perform. This performance was crucial, because the follow day, each judge had to pick one act from their team to send home! Check out our fave performances from each category:
Demi Lovato's Young Adults
We were totally impressed with Demi's team! Each of the acts entertained us, and we're loving their makeovers-- especially CeCe's new blonde hair. Our fave performance has to be Jennel Garica's rockin' rendition of Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home". Check it out:
LA Reid's Over 25s
LA sure had a tough decision on his hands. With some song choices that the judges were not too crazy about, LA's team didn't impress us as much as we were hoping. The stand-out performance was Tate Stevens singing Craig Morgan's "Tough".
Britney Spears' Teens
We're totally convinced Britney has the winner on her team! All four of them did so great, that it's hard to pick a fave. Beatrice Miller's version of Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up" just might be our top pick, plus we love her rocker/tomboy style!
Simon Cowell's Groups
All four of Simon's groups really stepped it up for the live shows! While the judges weren't crazy about their performance, we really loves 1432's (formally LYLAS) version of Taylor Swift's "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
Which performance was your favorite?
The day after the first live show, the judges had the difficult task of turning the final 16 into the final 12. It seemed near impossible for them to get rid of a member of their team, and we're so sad to see them go! Check out the pics to see who got eliminated from each team.
Demi's Young Adults- Willie Jones
LA's Over 25s- David Correy
Britney's Teens- Diamond White
Simon's Groups- Sister C
We're still shocked about some of these decisions and so excited to see what happens tonight!
Let's dish: -What do you think about the judges' eliminations? Who do you think will win the whole thing?
