The Stereo Hoggz survived one appearance in the bottom two on The X Factor last week, successfully singing for their lives and avoiding elimination.

But the second time was not the charm for this talented quintet: earlier tonight, they became the second consecutive group to get the boot.

The elimination of another one of her charges was too much for Paula Abdul to take. After L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger cast votes to send the Hoggz packing, Paula teared up and refused to participate.

“I can’t do this,” the emotional judge said, until being informed she had to do this or else the Hoggz would definitely go home.

Abdul then selected Lakoda Rayne, in order to avoid being the deciding voice, leaving Simon Cowell to reject the Hoggz and leaving the show with its top 10.

What do you think? Did the right group go home?
