The X Factor Results: Who Made the Top 12?

by at . Comments

The X Factor went from 16 to 12 tonight, as four contestants - one from each group - were sent packing. In somewhat complicated fashion.

First, each judge deemed two singers from his/her troupe to be safe; they went straight to the next round. Then, the remaining pair of hopefuls sang against each other for their X Factor lives.

Take CeCe Fry, for example, who belted out this beautiful version of “Out Here On My Own."

So, who got the axe? The following quartet was eliminated:

  • Willie Jones
  • David Correy
  • Diamond White
  • Sister C

Therefore, the teams now look like this:

Team Demi Lovato: Jennel Garcia, Paige Thomas and CeCe Frey
Team L. A. Reid: Vino Allan, Tate Stevens and Jason Brock
Team Britney Spears: Carly Rose Sonenclar, Beatrice Miller and Arin Ray
Team Simon Cowell: Emblem3, Lyric145 and 1432

What did you think of this format and of the results? Who was the most surprising to be sent home?
