Another young contestant got sent home this week on The X Factor.

A week after Drew Ryniewicz was reduced to tears, the same fate befell 13-year old Rachel Crow, who fell into the bottom two and then got eliminated after the judges deadlocked and the show left the final decision up to viewers.

Did Marcus Canty do enough last night to avoid another placement in the bottom two on this evening's X Factor results show?

The singer/dancer gave viewers twice the Marcus during an episode that featured a dance hit and a choice by each of the contestants. First up, Canty covered "Ain't Nobody." From there, it was on to "A Song For You" and mixed reaction from the panel.

Did Rachel Crow earn your vote on The X Factor last night?

The young singer took to the stage twice, first doing an impression of Bruno Mars and then covering "Music and Me," and earning strong, weird praise from the judges.

For the second time this season, Chris Rene broke out an original song on The X Factor.

The performance followed a cover of Rihanna's "Live Your Life," and received nothing but praise from the judges. Nicole Scherzinger told Rene the sky is "the limit" for him, while Paula Abdul told him to "trust the universe" for some reason. As for Simon Cowell?

Viewers were treated to a double dose of Melanie Amaro on The X Factor last night.

With the show asking contestants to perform a pair of covers - first, a dance remix; then, a song of their own choosing - the season's favorite took full advantage of her time in the spotlight, mixing up Adele's smash "Someone Like You" and then slowing it down for a version of "When You Believe."
