X Factor 2011 Top 5 results show recap: Nicole does it again
Is Nicole Scherzinger trying to get X Factor fans so angry they storm her Malibu home or is she just simply trying to get fired by Simon Cowell?
For the second week in a row, she made a decision that’s sure to be an unpopular one. I mean, the entire audience booing her at the end of the show is no a good sign. At least we know she doesn’t let simple hate mail deter her from her X Factor evil-doing.
Of course this time around, Nicole’s dumb decision can be hidden behind her cowardly act to split the votes, leaving the decision up to America. I’m sorry, but if she couldn’t clearly see who should’ve stayed based on those two save-me performances, then she shouldn’t be getting millions of dollars a year.
There was a clear winner between the bottom two and it was not Marcus Canty.
I don’t actually believe it was her goal to send Rachel Crow home, but the fact that she couldn’t bring herself to send Marcus “Bottom Two” Canty home is highly questionable. Sure Rachel might have gotten the least amount of votes and gone home if the show didn’t have the judges vote, but they do. And what’s the point of having it if they don’t use it properly?
I’m pretty tired of being angry at this show. The show needs a complete overhaul and they can start by ditching Nicole and robohost Steven Jones.
Earlier in the night, Steve sent Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Melanie Amaro to safety and into the semi-finals, leaving Marcus and Rachel to sing for their lives.
Marcus took the stage first and nailed his save-me song. There was a passion in his performance that I had actually never seen before. Maybe that was just anger after landing in the bottom two three weeks in a row.
I thought Marcus had the edge until Rachel stepped on the stage. The girl gave her ALL to this performance. I’ve been kind of critical of Rachel up until tonight and that’s because her performance was phenomenal. She sang her @#%! heart out! I was completely wowed.
I’ve been a Marcus fan for the most part all season, but Thursday night it was all about Rachel. I thought she fought her way to the top but Nicole decided to step in and be a complete idiot. Again.
I’ve never disagreed more with an outcome of an elimination show.
What are your thoughts? Did the right thing happen? Should Rachel have gone home? Did Nicole make you mad?
