Lose one, gain two.
While "The X Factor" is losing judge Demi Lovato, it gained season three victors Thursday night when the show crowned its champions.
Duo Alex & Sierra were named the winners and could barely hold it together. The real-life couple told People magazine it was an extremely emotional experience for them.
"I was like, 'Man, this is going to be okay.' But then the song started and all those blue lights in the audience, and I don't know. It just really got me," Alex Kinsey said to People after the show. "It was really, really overwhelming. Then when everyone ran out, I lost it."
His girlfriend and musical partner told MTV she believes the experience has drawn them even closer.
"I think it's just made us stronger," Sierra Deaton said. "We already knew we were strong, but going through an experience like this and staying the same way that we were, I think it just confirmed the things that we already thought."
Do you think the best act won?
