America is deaf; People are nawt surprised


9:00PM EST November 15. 2012 - Tension was thick. Performers were jittery. Beatrice Miller looked like she might burst into tears at any moment. Even Simon Cowell tweeted that he was "feeling a little nervous."

Which two acts would be sent home, shutting down any chance of that big $5 million X Factor prize?

"Let's get right to it," said host Mario Lopez on Thursday's show. "The first act going home..." But then he pulled an old American Idol trick. "...will be revealed after the break!"

The crowd moaned.

First to be booted, based on votes: Lyric 145, Simon Cowell's hip hop group, made up of Jemelle Joseph, Julien Joseph and Lyric Da Queen.

Said Khloe Kardashian Odom: "We're sad to see you guys go."

Said Lyric Da Queen: "I felt like we didn't get the opportunity to show what we really had. We had original lyrics, We had a hip hop song that got snatched away from us at the last minute. We're just taking the good with the bad right now."

Taylor Swift took the stage to sing State of Grace.

And then a surprise: Arin Ray is safe!

Also through: Vino Alan, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Diamond White, Tate Stevens, Emblem3, Beatrice Miller (who finally smiled).

And another surprise: Cece Frey is safe!

Fifth Harmony, Simon's group of five teen girls, was also deemed safe.

It came down to a sing-off between two of Demi Lovato's Young Adults — Paige Thomas, 22, and Jennel Garcia, 18.

Jennel, nearly crying on stage, sang I Just Want You To Know. Paige Thomas, looking fierce and in command, sang Coldplay's Paradise.

L.A. Reid said his "unpleasant decision" was to send home Jennel.

Britney said "both" are "amazing performers," but she voted to send Jennel home.

Simon then refused to cast a vote, wanting Demi to do it. "Mr. Cowell!" said Mario. Then he gave in and turned to Demi to get her decision.

"The act that I'm sending home tonight is..." and she turned it back to Simon.

Mario said, "Demi, we really need an answer on who you're sending home tonight."

Finally, she said, "Paige."

So it came back to Simon. "The act I believe has got the best star potential... The act I'm going to send home is Jennel."

She was really sad. "I'm happy I came so far," she managed to utter, followed by, "Thank you." She cried on Demi's shoulder as clips of her X Factor journey showed on the big screens behind the stage. Teary Demi said, "I think you have a future ahead of you. ... I really, really believe in you."

Next week: The Top 10 take the stage. Here's the leaderboard, according to votes.

Tate Stevens (again)
Carly Rose Sonenclar
Vino Alan
Cece Frey
Fifth Harmony
Diamond White
Beatrice Miller
Arin Ray
Paige Thomas

RIP LYRIC 145 and Janelle aka Demi's clone/lover

I'm worried none of the groups will make it near the final now. =(

I wanted 5H to be at least to the semifinal.
bexclare 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
I think 5H will get more votes if some of the teens go home tbh
tankmachine 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
well Little Mix didn't start off in the top 3 of the ranking each week but they kept getting better and were eventually #1 in the voting for multiple weeks so who knows maybe 5H and/or E3 will get there
katiexxpie 16th-Nov-2012 02:22 am (UTC)
at least e3 went up<33
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
once arin and probably beatrice go home 5h will get more votes
logan_lerman 16th-Nov-2012 02:26 am (UTC)
a LOT of 1D fans turned against 5H because they thought they were getting ~too close~ to the boys. so ridiculous because they deserve to be higher
skankattack 16th-Nov-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
Tate?! Bet Simon is mad he got rid of Sister C now.
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
tate is a really likable guy though, his whole "i'm a family man!!!" thing is so appealing to middle america

sister c were cold as fuck
kydeon 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
and he cried too....

sally_egan 16th-Nov-2012 07:23 pm (UTC)
Nah, the family man thing doesn't appeal to Middle America apparently.....
beetlebums 16th-Nov-2012 02:14 am (UTC)

Especially Demi. Even tough I loved what Simon did with Lyric 145. :(
thecitylove 16th-Nov-2012 03:39 am (UTC)
accurate. I like Demi but she is not good at this.
mari_lyn00 17th-Nov-2012 12:27 pm (UTC)
seriously, each of her contestants is so much better off without her, she ruins them.
tankmachine 16th-Nov-2012 02:14 am (UTC)
ugh i am so pissed about Lyric getting kicked :(

but Paige > Jennel in the singoff so w/e

top 3 is Carly 5H Diamond now I guess
iheartfamke 16th-Nov-2012 02:30 am (UTC)
I thought Jennel did much better than Paige. She's so boring.
cityxpretty 16th-Nov-2012 03:19 am (UTC)
I know :(
rebeljean 16th-Nov-2012 05:13 am (UTC)
showmesara 16th-Nov-2012 12:22 pm (UTC)
I just cannot like Jennel. I honeslty need to walk out of the room and just listen (or usually in my case, change tabs and go on ONTD or something) while she sings. I can't stand looking at her, she's so annoying
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:14 am (UTC)
this is literally the exact same ranking as last week minus cece inexplicably shooting up
it's just taking the suspense out of who will win
beetlebums 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
Lyric went from 9th to 13th :/
leperheart 16th-Nov-2012 05:19 am (UTC)
lol @ cece inexplicably shooting up

cece heroin chic
bibbysbaby 17th-Nov-2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
except Paige and Jannel severely fell, as did Diamond and E3 shot up as well.
bexclare 16th-Nov-2012 02:14 am (UTC)
I hope Lyric gets signed from this
kydeon 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
LA will sign her for something FOR SURE

I mean, last year he signed flops like Marcus Canty
mari_lyn00 17th-Nov-2012 12:28 pm (UTC)
omg what ever happened to him?
logan_lerman 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
i'm legit still fuming over this UGH
_brina 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
Who is voting for Tate?

Lyric 145 is way better than him.
tankmachine 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
my quen Cher is performing next week tho ^_^
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
omg rlyyyy YES
logan_lerman 16th-Nov-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
omg yasss
theotherqueen 16th-Nov-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
luvvvv her.
annieedison 16th-Nov-2012 02:41 am (UTC)
ahhhh yes!!
alanadelrey 16th-Nov-2012 02:54 am (UTC)
Omg yayyy
faz1988 16th-Nov-2012 03:10 am (UTC)

Is she doing Oath? I thought promo was over since that song tanked?
laurie_springs 16th-Nov-2012 02:15 am (UTC)
loling @ the other post. Why are people surprised a straight white male that sings country is doing so well on a talent show in America?

Anyway this show is basically just watching Simon blow a lot of money while demonstrating he actually knows nothing/is a complete sham. And it's made me understand the dislike of Demi, to boot.

WTG to Nicole AND Cheryl for getting the fuck out of this sinking ship.
kydeon 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
Nicole didn't get out of the sinking ship - she just hopped over to another sinking ship.
buzz_whistle 16th-Nov-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
She's the only judge keeping the ship afloat at this point
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
nicole was fired because she was super unlikable
snuffyqui45 16th-Nov-2012 02:20 am (UTC)
I hate Demi so much now omg
spydergamez 16th-Nov-2012 02:26 am (UTC)
ok this shit sucks but don't pretend Simon isn't a genius.
takingthewalk 16th-Nov-2012 02:33 am (UTC)
I wouldn't say I dislike Demi but I definitely dislike her as a judge. She really does not know what she is talking about a lot of the time and is not influencing her team well. Just b/c she's been in the business for a few years doesn't mean she necessarily knows what to tell these people.
x0sweetbliss 16th-Nov-2012 02:37 am (UTC)
lolol though his decision tonight to eliminate Jennel was wrong, Simon is brilliant when it comes to the music/entertainment industry, and it's silly to pretend otherwise.
cityxpretty 16th-Nov-2012 03:21 am (UTC)
Their electric bill must be very high.

I don't dislike Demi but I didn't like her this week.
su20 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
wow Cece jumped up and basically as high as emblem 3 trololol what does that say about their chances.

I wish XF UK did this too. omg the mess it'd bring to find out chris baloney is toppin the votes
katiefitch 16th-Nov-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
i can't wait to see which deserving act he'll beat out this week
tankmachine 16th-Nov-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
my theory states that Jahmene will either get eliminated after Thanksgiving next week or win
tankmachine 16th-Nov-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
ugh don't remind me of that mess
katiexxpie 16th-Nov-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
it really doesn't matter if e3 wins tho
daydreamx3 16th-Nov-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
lmaoooo what
logan_lerman 16th-Nov-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
lbr all the people voting for Tate are probably the same members of ~Soul Patrol~

its a Taylor Hicks 2.0 situation rn
sweeetkiwi 16th-Nov-2012 02:19 am (UTC)


Cece should have went home!!
