Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and for giving thanks for all that you have. Last night (November 22) on X Factor USA’s live results show, it was unfortunately about getting cut from the competition for two singers. So who went home on last night’s holiday elimination show?
The first act receiving the boot was teen singer Arin Ray. Ray struggled throughout the competition, never polling too far from the bottom in the rankings. This is actually Arin’s second time being eliminated from the X Factor USA. Last year, he was placed in the 10-piece group InTENsity, and they were cut during the first week of live shows.
With Arin immediately out of the competition, the next two singers with the lowest votes were left to fight it out for a place in the competition. Those two singers were Demi Lovato‘s CeCe Frey (once again) and surprisingly Britney Spears‘ teen act Beatrice Miller. Frey performed a painful cover of Kelly Clarkson‘s “Because of You,” while Miller took on Dido‘s “White Flag.” The vote ultimately came down to Simon Cowell and because he felt the competition was becoming too much for her, he decided to send Beatrice home.
“I just want to tell my sisters that I love them and I’m sorry,” the tearful teen said when asked if she had anything to say.
Beatrice and Arin’s exits from the show leaves Britney with two acts in her category. Representing team Brit Brit next week will be Diamond White and Carly Rose Sonenclar. Speaking of Sonenclar, the singer finally outranked country singer Tate Stevens from L.A. Reid‘s over 25s to take the No. 1 spot on the leaderboard rankings.
