At the House of Blues in New Orleans this week, Apple told the crowd, "This record with me ... I'm really sorry ... All the work we did is being overshadowed by this bull$h!t."

Or actually getting attention because of it. Either/or.

Sophie Tweed-Simmons is the 19-year old daughter of rocker Gene Simmons.

But the X Factor contestant didn't want viewers to know that last night, as depicted by the face she made when Demi Lovato pointed it out.

The hopeful wanted to succeed on her own merits, which is admirable and also a bit silly: get your foot in the door however possible, girl! If you can sing, you can sing.

So... can she sing? Watch a rendition of "To Make You Feel Me My Love" now.

Other X Factor favorites from the evening included:

Did Alana Thompson sparkle and shin? Did Anna have her baby? Did we make it through the first season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in one piece?

Read on to the answers to these questions and many more in our patented +/- rundown of this TLC hit's season finale...

Alana Thompson on Stage

Let's get right to it; Honey Boo Boo did not win the Miss Sparkle and Shine Pageant, a complete travesty that earns the judges MINUS 12 points.

Kate Middleton committing a fashion faux pas? Surely you jest.

No, we're not talking about the Kate Middleton topless scandal (there was no fashion being displayed there, if you know what we mean). This is a different situation:

Kate and Prince William thought they were dressing festively and appropriately for a party in the Solomon Islands. Unknowingly, however, they donned attire from the Cook Islands!

Relatively speaking, Dinah Jane Hansen has already won Season 2 of The X Factor.

Last night, the teenager told Simon Cowell and company that she resides in one house... with 32 relatives! Can you imagine the wait for the bathroom every morning?!?

Incredible backstory aside, Hansen wowed the crowd with a Beyonce classic, singing a version of "If I Were a Boy" that took attendees by very pleasant surprise.

Watch the performance now and compare it to another contestant we enjoyed this week, Daryl Black:

Daryl Black is a father of five.

He's a bit goofy, as evidenced by the photo of him riding a giant unicycle that was introduced just moment before he took the stage on The X Factor last night.

And he also might be the Season 2 champion.

Yes, it's very early to make such a prediction - but Black is also that darn good. Watch him make like a Gym Class Hero by belting out a version of "Stereo Hearts" and judge for yourself:
