Lyric 145 had what may have been their first live blemish on Wednesday night's episode of "The X Factor."
Hopefully, viewers of the show are still behind them; they can call 1 (855) THE XF05 or visit TheXFactorUSA.com to vote.
On Thursday, two contestants of the show will be eliminated.
On the latest episode of the show, the Top 12 contestants performed songs under the theme of "Diva Week."
Cowell said that Lyric 145's song choice—a rap version of Queen's "We Will Rock You"—was finally decided at midnight, and that they only had hours to perfect it.
The performance was reminiscent of Run-DMC's "Walk This Way" collaboration with Aerosmith, which is seen as one of the hit songs that defines the genre.
Three of the celebrity judges panned the performance.
Music executive L.A. Reid said that the performance was better than last week's, but that the group has "lost [its] way."
Britney Spears said, "They're a hip-hop group, and they should be doing hip-hop tracks."
Demi Lovato said that she "didn't get it," but her feedback was cut short by Lyric Da Queen interrupting her performance.
"We love you too!" she smiled.
Cowell gave the group positive feedback.
"I think everyone at home 'got it,'" he said, "and you have an energy that the show needs."
Some Twitter users dismissed the move as rude, while others praised it as showcasing the diva attitude of the stars who made the night's songs so popular.
Highlights included rousing performance of "Halo" by teenager Diamond White, Tina Turner's "Rolling On A River" by Jennel Garcia, and Tate Stevens' performance of "From This Moment On" by Shania Twain.
Judges called Arin Ray's performance of Madonna's "Crazy For You" as "boring," and Cowell said that CeCe Frey's performance of Celine Dion's "All By Myself" was "vary cabaret with the wind blowing your hair, and all the gimmicks."
