[Editor's Note: If you don't want to know who was eliminated from Thursday's episode of 'X Factor,' stop reading now!]
"X Factor's" viewers are finally able to vote for their favorite musical act, and on Thursday night the first LIVE results show aired.
We began with all 12 finalists singing "Without You" together on stage. It was kind of odd, but it was nice to see everyone harmonize, along with a few rhymes from Brian Bradley.
It was also the last time we would see all of the artists performing together.
After host Steve Jones pulled a Ryan Seacrest, waiting until after the break to tell us who got the lowest number of votes, each judge appeared on stage with their artists to learn which two artists were in the bottom two.
Both of them happened to be mentored by Paula Abdul: InTENsity and Stereo Hoggz.
Both groups had to perform again before the judges. Stereo Hoggz performed "Emotion," while InTENsity sang "My Life Would Suck Without You." Of all the singers I thought would get the boot from "The X Factor," I never thought IntTENsity would be the one. What was even more surprising was the fact that the two with the lowest scores of the night both came from Paula's group. How do you think she's been as a mentor?
Next week, the remaining 11 acts will perform before we cut another star. We'll also see a performance from Will Smith's daughter Willow.
So were you as shocked as I was to see InTENsity kicked off "The X Factor"?
