Last week on X Factor 2012, Jason Brock fell into the bottom two, and after the judges were deadlocked, it was revealed that he received the least amount of votes from America, resulting in his elimination.
In his exit interview, he talks about the hurtful comments Simon made about him and how he thinks those comments might have sealed his fate. He also talks about what he learned from the experience and what the viewers will be missing now that he’s gone.
Was he surprised at his elimination? No.
“I did have a feeling … the reason I had that feel was because of what simon said,” Jason said.
In what is becoming a VERY materialistic and appearacen-centered season, Simon cut on what Jason was wearing and poked fun at his song choice (“I Believe I Can Fly”) by telling him he doesn’t think he could get far off the ground, much less fly.
“I felt sad,” Jason said. “I felt really hurt and I thought ‘oh my god how much can I take of this.’ Fortunately I don’t have to take it anymore.”
Jason says there will be some fun things America will be missing out on now that he won’t be performing on the show anymore.
“They’re going to miss glitter explosions,” he said.
Hear what else Jason had to say in his interview below. Check back in with us soon for all the details on this week’s episode of The X Factor.
For the first time in basically any singing competition show ever, X Factor 2012 decided to share with viewers how America voted on the Top 13 performances from the night before.
I must say I’m pleased with this turn of events. And I’m trying to not be skeptical by thinking they’re not true results or that voting was down so this is a ploy to get more voters then they’ll stop revealing the placements of each contestant. Of course the latter probably will happen. Who knows how long they’ll keep telling us the singers’ rankings.
Before we get to that part, let’s back up. After way too much One Direction stuff, Mario and Khloe call all four teams and their mentors to the stage to start delivering the results. One by one, the acts are sent to safety. The first batch cleared for next week were Arin Ray, Paige Thomas, Diamond White and Vino Alan.
After a break, the results continue. Sent through to the Top 12 were Jennel Garcia, Emblem3, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Tate Stevens, Beatrice Miller and Lyric 145. That leaves 5th Harmony, CeCe Frey and Jason Brock. The announcement is made and 5th Harmony is the last act saved. So CeCe and Jason will sing for their lives as the judges make the decision of who stays and who goes.
On Wednesday night, the X Factor 2012 Top 12 became the Top 13 when the judges added Diamond White back to show. Tonight the Top 13 becomes the Top 12 again. So who stays and who goes? And for the first time ever, we will know how each act placed based on votes! Now this is a twist I can get behind! Find out the results live!
X Factor 2012 Top 13 Results
Safe (in no particular order):
- Arin Ray
- Paige Thomas
- Diamond White
- Vino Alan
- Jennel Garcia
- Carly Rose Sonenclar
- Tate Stevens
- Beatrice Miller
- 5th Harmony
Bottom Two: Jason Brock and CeCe Frey
CeCe and Jason will sing for their lives. The judges will decide which of the two go home.
Yes, you read that right. The X Factor 2012 Top 12 became the Top 13 as Britney and the other judges agreed that Diamond White should return to the competition despite being among the contestants cut during last week’s round.
So Diamond joined the 12 other acts singing songs from movies during the first night America gets to call the shots. As always, I’ll review each performance and assign the grade I think each one deserves.
Arin Ray, “American Boy.” Arin had some great stage presence and some nice moves that everyone was too afraid to call sexy (since he’s only 17). But that’s about as good as it got. His vocals weren’t that great. And that’s happening a lot because everyone is focused on dancing and taking part in the ridiculous production. These people are not pros yet! So why is X Factor treating it like they are? Let them sing! C+
Paige Thomas, ” Take My Breath Away.” Ugh. Why? Someone please tell me why they’re insisting on all these ridiculous gimmicks this season? I mean Paige floated in on wires at the beginning of this production. I get it when Katy Perry or Lady Gaga does it, but this girl has been singing live for like two weeks. Let her work up to such productions. Let us find out if she can sing first! Her vocals were better this week than last, at least. B+
The X Factor 2012 Top 13 take to the stage live for the second time tonight. Only this time, America is the judge. Each of the acts will have their chance to take the stage and perform for your votes. Need a refresher on X Factor voting?
Right away, the judges made a special announcement. There’s a twist. They’ve decided to bring back one act — Diamond White.
