DOUBLE ELIMINATION SENDS HOME

SWEET SUSPENSE AND RACHEL POTTER ON The X Factor

 

Top 10 Finalists Perform LIVE for America’s Votes

Wednesday, November 20 on FOX

 

One Direction Returns to The X Factor Stage with World Debut of 

Their New Single, “Story of My Life,” and Live Results Announced

Thursday, November 21

 

In a dramatic LIVE results show, Sweet Suspense, one of Simon Cowell’s Groups and Rachel Potter, one of Kelly Rowland’s Over 25s, were eliminated on The X Factor. Tonight, host Mario Lopez announced early in the broadcast that Sweet Suspense had the fewest votes following last night’s performance show, and they were eliminated immediately. Khaya Cohen and Rachel Potter received the next fewest votes and the judges – Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio – listened to the two acts battle it out in “The Final Showdown” sing-off. After an emotional deliberation, Potter was sent home.

 

Earlier in the show, actress and recording artist Selena Gomez (“Getaway,” “Spring Breakers”) performed her hit single, “Slow Down,” from her album, “Stars Dance,” and Fifth Harmony returned to The X Factor stage and performed their hit single, “Me and My Girls.”

 

The X Factor continues on Wednesday, Nov. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), as the Top 10 Finalists perform songs by U.K. artists on British invasion night. On Thursday, Nov. 21(8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), another act will be sent home, and the world’s biggest boy band, One Direction, returns to THE X FACTOR stage for the world debut performance of their single, “Story of My Life,” from their highly anticipated new album, “Midnight Memories.” With two albums to date, “Up All Night” and “Take Me Home,” the boys have sold more than 35 million records worldwide and have achieved a total of 64 No. 1 songs. One Direction made their movie debut in 2013 with their global No. 1 box office hit 3-D concert movie, “One Direction: This Is Us.” On Nov. 25, the band will release their third studio album, “Midnight Memories,” which includes the worldwide smash hit, “Best Song Ever” and the current single, “Story Of My Life.” The album, out Nov. 25, is available for pre-order now at: http://smarturl.it/MidnightMemoriesiT.

    I liked Sweet Suspense, but good riddance Rachel.

  • Flame

    If One Direction has 64 Number 1 sons with 2 albums, how many do the Beatles have?

  • Katiebug

    Rachel was terrible, glad she is gone.

    One Direction next week!

  • Katiebug

    @Flame

    27 #1 hits (in the U.S.)
    19 #1 albums

  • Andy

    I was surprised that Sweet Suspense and Rachel Potter were eliminated.

  • Jonathan

    Fifth Harmony was great last night!! They are super fun! The eliminations were so shocking. The girl in the bottom two that wasn’t eliminated last night was sensational!!

  • Ariana Alcala

    Vote for her then Jonathan. it’s unbelievable Khaya Cohen should of never been on the bottom 2. I feel the show has become more about looks and dancing, and facial expressions instead of actual Talent . It is actually really unfair and Nasty.

  • John

    Like the judges said …Wake up America & Vote…. I am perplexed that Miss Potter went home. who ever did not vote for her Needs hearing aids and for Miss Cohen. Close your eyes and listen, there were really bad ones that are still there.

  • Jay

    John, that would require people to watch the show.
