'X Factor' Semifinals Results Has Britney Spears Giving Horrified Face
Here’s one way to kick off your semifinal elimination day: have one of your judges announce their resignation. L.A. Reid did just that on Thursday afternoon.
I’m here backstage at The X Factor and it’s business as usual. One act will leave the competition on Thursday, leaving the Top 3 to battle it out for the Season 2 prize next week.
The acts performed a medley to kick off the show. The show then reminded us of what the performers presented as their proof that they should advance to the finals.
On Wednesday, Tate Stevens reinforced his country roots, finding that that has enlivened his audience to push him back to the No. 1 spot. Tiny dynamo Carly Rose Sonenclar took a couple risks that had the judges (and the viewers) divided as to whether they were right for her. Emblem3 delivered two songs that clearly solidified their heartthrob status. And in fourth place, Fifth Harmony made it a point to prove they could be more than a one trick pony by delivering a stylish performance followed by a span-glish one.
Who gave enough to move on to the finals?
Um, huh? Fifth Harmony pulled it off! Britney Spears’ peeved face said it all: The entire backstage here is equally stunned and going nuts over her annoyed look. Honestly, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of gals.
After a performance from Bruno Mars (pre-recorded, by the way), we find out that Carly will go through. Clearly, she’s earned the spot and she has the singing talent to be at this level in the competition.
