Hey M Girls!

Here at the M office, we cannot believe how great all of the contestants are doing on the X Factor! Last week's episodes were some of the most exciting yet, so of course we have all the deets in our weekly X Factor Recap!

The Performances

The week's theme was "Songs From the Movies". It was the first elimination voted by the fans, and it seems the added pressure motivated the contestants to work harder than ever to give a great performance. Check out some of our faves:

Simon's Groups

There wasn't a single bad performance amongst the groups, but we totally think Emblem3's mash-up of "My Girl", "California Girls" and "What Makes You Beautiful" was one of the best of the entire night! We love their energy-- and so does Demi!

Demi's Young Adults

Of Demi's young adults, the stand out was Jennel Garcia. She rocked it out while performing "I Love Rock and Roll". We think her voice was perfect for the song.

LA's Over 25s

Demi may not think Vino Alan has the potential to be a pop star, but we certainly do! His performance of "When A Man Loves A Woman" gave us goosebumps the whole was through.

Britney's Teens

Brit has some serious talent on her team! This week we have to give it to Carly Rose and her emotional performance of "It Will Rain". We still can't believe she's just 13!

Which performance was your fave?

The Elimination

While we were not excited to see any of the acts go home, we were excited to watch One Direction perform on the results show! The guys sure know a thing or two about the pressure of facing elimination, so they chatted backstage with the contestants before the show! Check out these pics of Niall with Beatrice Miller, and swoon-worthy meeting of 1D and Emblem3:

After the boys' killer performance, it was time to announce the act who would be leaving the competition. Check this video to see who America chose to send home:

We were so bummed to see Jason Brock go home! Check back next week for another X Factor recap, and be sure to watch an all new episode of X Factor at 8/7c tonight on Fox!

Let's dish: -What was your highlight of last week's X Factor? Do you think the right person went home?
