After the Top 12 performed for your votes for the first time on Wednesday night (November 2), one of the contestants/acts was forced to leave the competition and the Top 11 were introduced during the “The X-Factor” live results show on Thursday (November 3)- watch video below.
The two acts with the lowest number of votes, The Stereo Hoggz and InTENsity, performed in front of the judges for survival. The judges will have to pick who they want to send home. If there is a tie, the act with THE lowest number of votes will be eliminated.
The Stereo Hoggz took over the stage to deliver a classic boyband performance of “Emotion”, which was written by the Bee Gees (1977) and also recorded by Destiny’s Child in 2001. The kids from InTENsity were next with a rendition of Idol Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You” (watch videos below).
It’s time for the judges to make their decision. Simon Cowell surprisingly wants to send The Stereo Hoggz, who he labeled one of the best boybands in the world at the moment, solely based on their “survival” performance. Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid finally sent the teeny boppers from InTENsity home.
