Before two more singers received the axe on this week’s live results show episode of the X Factor USA, the top eight took the stage to perform for the judges and America. Fan favorites like Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens wowed the crowd yet again while acts like CeCe Frey and Vino Alan sort of bombed their performances. The bombing would result in Vino’s elimination.
Here’s a look at the best three performances from the live top eight performance show.
Paige Thomas: Who would have thought that defying her mentor would result in her best performance? Paige decided to take control of her performance of “Never Gonna Give You Up,” opting to give it more life with dancers versus Demi’s idea to strip it down. She finally looked comfortable on stage and got rave reviews from all of the judges. Too bad it was too little too late. She was kicked out of the competition during the results show this week.
Fifth Harmony: The girls of Fifth Harmony turned tragedy into triumph with a solid performance of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger.” Sure, the harmonies were just not there but they all sounded great on an individual basis.
Carly Rose Sonenclar: Another week, another appearance on our top list. Carly Rose dazzled with a stunning performance of Adele’s monster smash “Rolling In The Deep.” It was flawless. Flaw-free. Without a flaw…you get it. It was simply awesome.
