“The X Factor” has its Top 4!
The season 3 semifinalists were unveiled during Thursday’s dramatic results show, where two acts disappointingly got the boot.
Ellona Santiago was immediately eliminated after it was revealed she scored the lowest amount of votes, prompting mentor Demi Lovatoto exclaim, “This is ridiculous!”
“I’m actually really speechless and disappointed,” Lovato said, adding that Santiago now joins other ill-fated contestants this season that shockingly went home.
Paige performed “The House That Built Me” by Miranda Lambert, followed by Olivero performing “You Make Me Wanna” by Usher.
Lovato, Paige’s mentor, kicked off the deliberations, voting to cut Olivero, while his coachPaulina Rubio voted for Paige to go.
Kelly Rowland voted to send home Paige for the second week in a row, leaving the final decision in the hands of Simon Cowell.
And his vote for Paige made her ouster official, with the music mogul saying he believed Olivero needed this chance more than the 13-year-old.
Santiago and Paige’s double elimination means Lovato no longer has any contestants left
in the competition, despite starting with a few early standouts.
