The X Factor 2012 Top 6 take on two songs — one chosen by you, the fans in the Pepsi Challenge! The other song will be of any genre, but will be done “unplugged.”

While the unplugged songs are under wraps, we have what the contestants will be singing for their Pepsi Challenge songs!

Pepsi Challenge Performances

  • Carly Rose Sonenclar, Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy.”
  • CeCe Frey, Katy Perry’s “Part of Me”
  • Diamond White, Rihanna’s “Diamonds”
  • Emblem 3, Alphaville’s “Forever Young”
  • Fifth Harmony, Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart a Break”
  • Tate Stevens, Garth Brooks’ “If Tomorrow Never Comes”

As for the unplugged songs, we’ve got some teasers for you.

Carly: ”I am excited about unplugged because that is the style that I like, just a little stripped down. It’s actually not that much harder doing two songs than one because both songs are so short!”

CeCe: “I’m really excited for the unplugged song because this week we get to do the best of both worlds. I’m doing this crazy over-the-top performance and then something really stripped down.”

Diamond: “I’ll save all the performances with all the crazy action for when I go on tour. But, now, I’m focusing on my voice and simpler performances.”

Emblem 3: ”I like it. It’s sick. It’s unplugged and rad. Drew is playing acoustic guitar. This is one we’re excited about and it’s cool to show our acoustic side,” says Keaton Stromberg of the group.

Fifth Harmon: ”It’s nice to just be heartfelt and really feel the song with no big production about it and we’ve been working really, really hard on this one, and our vocals have to be on point,” says Dinah Jane.

Tate: ”I’m in my element tonight with the acoustic performance. It’s great to finally get to do two songs.”

On Thursday we’ll get our results and will also see the return of Season 1 winner Melanie Amaro when she takes the stage for a performance. Ke$ha will also be a guest, debuting her new single, “C’Mon.”
