The X Factor Top 9 Results: Two More Go Home

by at . Comments

In a special double elimination results show on The X Factor, America sent two acts home, leaving the final seven to contend for the championship. After listening to a pair of performances by Kelly Clarkson and Bruno Mars, the results came quickly.

Shaking on It

First, Steve Jones brought Drew and Lakoda Rayne out in front, noted that one would be in, and the other received the least amount of votes by America, and would be leaving the competition. As I predicted last night, the Rayne girls were the first to go tonight, while Drew moved onto next week's Top Seven.

It was then time to pick the next two lowest vote-getters, and five of the six acts joining Drew in the next round. The advancing contestants were. in no particular order; Chris Rene, Rachel Crow, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Astro.

That means that Marcus Canty and LeRoy Bell gathered the second and third least amount of votes in the bunch. It came down to the judges' pick and here is what they decided...

L.A. went with his boy Marcus Canty.

Nicole Scherzinger went with her man Leroy Bell.

Paula put some thought into it, but chose to save LeRoy because his Showdown performance was better (which it definitely was).

Simon then decided to put it in the hands of America, picking Marcus to make it a 2-2 tie.

Going by the final America's vote tally, the second contestant eliminated this week was...Leroy Bell. Marcus Canty moves on this week.

There was not nearly as much drama as last week's Astro-pocalypse, but the field was cut from nine to seven, which is serious business. Two of the seven - Astro and Marcus Canty - have been among the bottom vote-getters. Who among Drew, Rachel, Josh, Chris, and Melanie is leading the way? I think any one of those five could take it, but my money is on Josh Krajcik.

What do you think?

That asshole oh I'm sorry I meant astro he should have never been given a spot right from the start he was a little smart ass right from the begining and his parents thinks he's cute. he needs someone to kick him in the ass and then put there foot in his parents ass to. this was a singing competition not a rap competition i dont think it fair to the others who are singing. get rid of that little cry baby and have him take that wash-up LA Reed with him. LA dont know talant if it slapped him on that big ass bone head. Simon's the man

It's been obvious since before the live shows that Astro and Drew need to be gone. Both are one trick ponies. One a bad rapper, the other a bad yodeler, neither a singer. Saw some guy bragging the other day about an app he has for Verizon which allows him to vote for Drew twice a second for the entire two hours the voting is open after a show. That's 14,400 times, folks. He was encouraging others to get the app and do the same. So now we see why Drew is still there. Technology, not talent. Too bad they can't set it up for 1 vote per phone number, cellular SIM card or ISP address. We'd get a truer picture of what America REALLY thinks.

I love the show but I am disappointed in Simon not taking the responsibility to send Marcus Canty home. The judges are supposed to vote on the performance of the bottom two contestants to save one of their lives. Leroy Bell was far superior in his singing at this junction than was Marcus. I do like Marcus but those are supposed to be the show's rules. Simon gets angry at L.A.Reid for not giving proper criticism to his contestants, yet he failed to step up to the plate and save Leroy Bell who deserved to be saved this evening. Not a fair result, and not a wise and strong decision on Simon's part. Leroy is amazing and should have been allowed to remain in the competition! I am disappointed in Simon and his failure to take the appropriate decision. Very out of his character!!!!
