The X Factor: Who's Getting Sent Home Tonight?

It’s almost time for The X Factor—America’s favorite singing competition that is currently on the air right now—to begin its live performance rounds. Exciting! And tonight, FIVE acts will be given the boot. Can you believe that? Yes! It’s true! Really, it should be twelve, based on the judges’ terrible choices. But we’ll have to settle for five. But which five? Here’s who I predict will see their X Factor journey end tonight. Let me know if you agree or disagree.


Paula Abdul’s Team: The Groups

This is the most bogus of the show's categories, and everyone knows it. Right, Sony is going to award $5 million to The Stereo Hogzz or InTENsity so they can sell eleven records. Don’t forget those Brewer Boys, with their swoopy hair nests and harmonies! I would say let’s just eliminate all four groups, because that’s what’s eventually going to happen anyway, but I think the show will stretch that out over a few weeks so it doesn't seem as obvious that this entire endeavor is a complete sham. So tonight, let’s just release all 450 members of InTENsity. And The Brewer Boys. Byeeee, kids.


Nicole Scherzinger’s Team: The Over 40s

For some reason, the caterwauling of the runny-mascara’d Stacy Francis seems to delight the judges to no end. Hopefully America will soon open its ears and search its heart and realize that woman is the worst. But tonight, Dexter Haygood will bid us adieu. This is where the contestants start paying their dues—in sweat, not in Mick Jagger ripoff moves.


L.A. Reid’s Team: The Boys

Do you want to know how much I dislike Brian “Astro” Bradley, the little collar-poppin’ punk who L.A. Reid seems to think has a recording career ahead of him? A lot. (Sorry, I know that was a bit of a letdown.) But I don’t think the kid is going home just yet. Neither is Chris Rene, the recovering addict. As for Phillip Lomax, the Sinatra impersonator, well, he’s on the bubble. But Marcus Canty, he’s out of here. Good night, Marcus. You are a shining star with an incredible spirit, according to Paula Abdul.


Simon Cowell’s Team: The Girls

This race is three-way tie between Jazzy Junior Miss Rachel Crow, Simone “The Ick Factor” Battle, and Tiah “Simon Had to Include Her to Prove He Was Right” Tolliver. Rachel has updated her look (see above), so maybe she’ll be a little less 13-going-on-50 tonight, and more 30-going-on-50. Muuuch better. But Tiah’s days are numbered. In fact, today is her last one! Goodbye, TT.


Who do you think will go home tonight? Who should go home?

I wish more people were going home, I don't think I can take this show dragging out.

The groups are awful. I think the Stereo Hoggz are the best of the groups but that's not saying much. I was happy to see the Brewer Boys go home. They're awful. I could care less about any of these groups. They're not impressive in the least.



As for these boys, I like Philip Lomax, was sad to see him go. But I wasn't surprised. I didn't think LA liked him as much as the others. I don't get why Brian is there. He's rapping. I thought it was a singing competition? He was a jerk from the beginning and I'll always see him that light. (And I'm a HUGE fan of hip-hop music, just can't stand Brian). And as bad as I feel for Chris Rene, he just can't SING. His performance was not good at all. If LA has so much faith in Brian and Chris, he should hook them up with a deal elsewhere because I don't really think they can compete against the raw talent on the show.



It made a lot of sense for Nicole to send Dexter home. He never should have made it to the live shows. Everyone else she sent home before Dexter was a better singer than him. As for the girls, THANK GOD, Tiah and Simone are gone. They were terrible! Did Simon keep them around to make his final decision easier?

I agree with you on a lot of things: the groups ....they suck indeed and are never going to win this. Then again, this entire show is becoming more "MTV Cribs" with someone yelling in the backyard so who knows anymore??

The over 40's, Dexter... I mean what the hell is he anyway? Good riddance!! Stacey Francis has it's ups and downs for me. I liked her Purple Rain version, but her problem is that she can only yell in the microphone and show some pain. Boehoe, get over it!!



The boys.... I know what you mean about Astro "I don't dance, because Jay-Z doesn't dance". Pfff, arrogant little ***. But then again, he is good in what he does which is rapping.

Also, I think is gonna score a lot of votes so, nah he's gonna stay a while.

I'm scared for Marcus, but I'd rather send Sinatra home as he is to limited... I mean, would you buy his record??



The girls...I think the winner is in this category and it's gonna be Drew IMO. When I heard her version of Biebers Baby, I thought she had something special. Could be a close call but hey.

Your probably right about Tia, but how cruel would that be?



Peace out!

I think Drew has a good chance to win it too. That girl is pure and natural talent. I actually liked Stacey at first, but now she's worn on my nerves. Hearing her sob story again and again makes me want her gone! Now we'll be dealing with her for another week.... And I think Marcus is clearly the best in his category. I think he'd be a good pop and r&b singer.

This review greatly annoys me. This is more of a stream of consciousness then an actual review. I appreciate when writers put their own thoughts in their articles and some of yours are just. However, there are times when you are saying your opinion like it is a fact and other people would be stupid not to agree. With a show like X factor you can state your opinion but your final decision should be based on who you think America as a whole wants gone not just who you personally want gone. This review could have been much better.

You're aware that this a predictions list, not a review, right? It came out before the episode, which was live, aired, making it tough to be a review. Seth's pretty straight-forward about it simply being his predictions. And considering this was a judges-choice elimination, why does what America wants have anything to do with who he thinks each of those four individuals will ax? And, um, of course this is his set of opinions. Isn't that what predictions are?

I was not trying to be as rude as my original comment sounded. I did not mean review either I knew it was Seth's predictions. I usually enjoy Seth's predictions and articles but for some reason there was something about this one that just irked me.
