The X Factor Results: This Is It For...

by at . Comments

Two contestants were forced to say This Is It on The X Factor tonight, as a pair of hopefuls Beat It off stage in eliminations that were the result of their Michael Jackson-themed covers from the previous evening.

So, who got the boot?

The Factor Final 5

ASTRO and DREW!

Early on in the hour, the top three of Melanie Amaro, Chris Rene and Rachel Crow were passed through to the next round. Astro, the 15-year old rapper from Brooklyn was then sent packing, reacting in a far more mature manner then when he was forced to sing for his survival two weeks ago.

He hugged his fellow contestants and thanked his "Astronauts."

It then came down to Drew and Marcus Canty, with Paula Abdul casting the deciding vote for the former based on her chair-based performance from Tuesday night. Drew fought off tears, gave praise to Jesus and said she has "a lot to show" the world still.

"I think she's a little star and I think America knows she's going to be a star," Simon Cowell said of his protege.

What is your take on these eliminations?

Marcus deserves his spot, Drew is not more talented than Marcus. Every week with drew it was the same, Marcus is an entertainer.I just wish la reid would pick better songs for him. Marcus has a wonderful voice,...when he sang at the judges house u could really tell how good of a singer he really is. My top three are Rachel,Josh, and Marcus. I like Melanie, but I just feel like we've seen her before. We have heard that voice before. I think she sounds just like Jordin Sparks, and look like her as well.

Don't get me wrong Astro is mad talented and I am sure he will get signed soon, but I didn't think it was fair to all the other contestants that they were only able to change melodies and beats and mean while all he HAD to use was basically the chorus. I am a huge fan of Chris Rene's to but I have felt the same way about 1 or 2 of his performances as well. When you showcase your own songs you are showing the world a whole other side to you and I think if one can do it they should all be able to do it!

I'm so glad that Astro and Drew went home. Astro and Drew ALWAYS had the same tone and songs they sang every week, they never went out of their comfort zone.

I've been waiting for Astro to get sent home for weeks! Good riddance! I liked Drew from the beginning, but her performances have always been blah. She has a wonderful voice, but no stage presence. Marcus is amazing and spirited and every time he gets on stage, he moves me. I'm glad that he got to stay because he definitely has what it takes to win it!

I HAVE NEVER LIKED ASTRO OR CARED FOR DREW. I REALLY BELIEVE CHRIS ISN'T ANY GOOD EITHER, BUT MELANIE AND JOSH ARE IN FOR A FIGHT. THEY BOTH ARE SO GOOD IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHICH ONE WINS. I LOVE JOSH, BUT I THINK MELANIE WILL BEAT HIM OUT ...:(
