Last Thursday night’s X Factor elimination was down to a battle between two of Paulina Rubio’s contestants, Carlito Olivero and Tim Olstad.
One of Demi’s girls, Khaya Kohen, was the first contestant sent home before ultimately, Olstad was sent packing.
Audiences awaited each judges’ vote, as one by one, each mentor opted to send Olstad home. Lovato and Cowell both agreed he lacked the certain X Factor that a top 40 artist possesses.
If last night's Voice episode was the finale, then none other than team Christina Aguilera's own Jacquie Lee would be declared the winner.
Ths adorable teen gave a Christina Aguilera like performance of "Who's Lovin' You."
Even the queen diva herself got out of her judges' chair to applaud the feature star on a job well done.
It takes a successful and vocally talented artist like Aguilera to properly train talent, and Lee made her coach more than proud last night.
We got down on Sunday night, as the American Music Awards 2013 took place in Los Angeles! Set at the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live, music's A-list begin to arrive early, their notability announced by the echoes of hundreds of screaming fans.
Numerous celebrities remained true to status, with the bigger names such as Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera arriving towards the end of the red carpet before running pasts reporters to the auditorium.
It was fun on the set of Wednesday night's X Factor and the boys of One Direction made a special appearance and we had a chance to chat with them!
While doing our best to keep it strictly professional, we couldn't help but gush over the roughly smooth British boy bad, who, thanks to the UK version of the X Factor, are now gracing our screens, walls, notebooks, lockers, tumblr, and Twitter newsfeeds.
On Tuesday, we chatted with the top 12 contestants of NBC's The Voice, and they told us it was judge Christina Aguilera who intimated them the most.
Well, Wednesday night was elimination night, and it was down to the final three contestants.
Being on a reality show is hard. Being judged by millions is tough. But the most difficult aspect of both? Being critiqued by…Christina Aguilera.
The top 10 contestants performed during another two hour presentation of NBC’s The Voice, each vying for a chance to remain in the competition.
Tessanne Chin gave a diva-like performance of “If I Were Your Woman.“ Her vocals are strong, and she continues to progress each week.
Thursday night’s X Factor results show was a bittersweet one, as two more contestants were sent home, last season’s breakout contestants performed and Demi Lovato shared her new book.
In a shocking elimination, girl group Sweet Suspense was the first to be cut, with Rachel Potter being next to go.
Before Potter was eliminated, last season’s third place winner Fifth Harmony, grouped together by Simon Cowell, were the night’s special guest performers.
Tuesday night was the beginning of eliminations for the top 13 finalists of the X Factor, but due to last week's voting error, it made it the first night of the top 12 cuts.
Sadly, one of the fan favorites was ultimately sent home. Carlos Guevara, 16, was the first contestant that didn't make it through to next week.
Guevara was in good spirits, and had nothing but sweet words to say about his experience.
Two of the top twelve contestants were sent home last night on NBC's The Voice.
It was also the first night of the show's new twist, the “Instant Save.”
Fans could instantly save a contestant in the bottom three entirely by logging on Twitter and tweeting a hash tag with a Voice tagline and their chosen contestant’s name.
This makes live shows all the more real, as fans are literally, part of the show.
When asked which contestant they thought would be saved, coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine said Jonny Gray.
It’s down to the final twelve, and the result of last night’s performances lies in the hands of America.
