The finale stage is set on The X Factor.
With four contestants still alive entering tonight's elimination episodes, viewers and judges selected the three acts that would take the stage next week and compete for a $5 million grand prize.
First, something NOT mentioned during the broadcast: L.A. Reid has announced he will NOT return for Season 3.
But who won't return for next week's finale?
Following astute words from Khloe Kardashian ("These finals really mean everything to these contestants."), we learn that Fifth Harmony is safe.
So is Tate Stevens.
Will Carly Rose Sonenclar or Emblem3 be joining them next Wednesday night?
America has voted and... EMBLEM3 HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
Simon Cowell assures the boys they will have an illustrious career, but they will not have millions in their pockets next week.
Did viewers make the right call?
