X Factor 2012 CeCe gets eliminated

Thursday night on X Factor 2012, the Final Four were announced as two more acts were sent home based on America’s votes and the judges’ input.

CeCe Frey was eliminated first as the act with the least amount of votes. That means that Demi Lovato’s Young Adults team has been wiped out. Later in the night, Diamond White was also eliminated, leaving Britney Spears with just one person left in her teens group.

So that leaves us with this Top 4: Tate Stevens, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Emblem 3 and Fifth Harmony.

The rest of the episode was mostly filler. It all started with a huge filler flashback about all the performances from the night before. That was followed by the return of last season’s X Factor winner Melanie Amaro, who debuted her new single.

Following Melanie’s performance and a break, Mario and Khloe got the show on the road. The person with the least amount of votes and first person to go home was announced, and as I said above, that was CeCe.

After CeCe’s elimination, the acts saved by America were sent on to the Top 4 in random order: Emblem 3, Carly Rose and Tate.

That means Fifth Harmony and Diamond White were made to sing for the last spot in next week’s Top 4 performance show.

After a horrible performance from Kesha, the Bottom 2 acts take the stage.

Up first was Fifth Harmony with Mariah Carey’s “Anytime You Need A Friend.” It was a good performance for them. They were harmonizing, which was L.A Reid’s big problem with them. Will he look past their past performances and save them?

Diamond White took on “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack. This was a surprising song for her, but she handled it well. She seemed to feel the song more than Fifth Harmony. This is a tough one.

Next up was the judges’ decision and here’s how that played out:

  • Simon votes to eliminate Diamond.
  • Britney votes to eliminate Fifth Harmony.
  • LA Votes to cut Diamond White.
  • Demi makes it official as she votes to cut Diamond White.

This week’s Ranking:

  • 1. Tate Stevens
  • 2 Carly Rose Sonenclar
  • 3. Emblem 3
  • 4. Fifth Harmony

What did you think of this week’s results? Did America and the judges get it right?
