The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 24:: Top Finalists Live Show #6
Last night on The X Factor the Top 4 Finalists (Tate Stevens, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony) performed! Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of the Live Show #6 which aired December 12th, 2012.
Each act sang two songs last night, and Tate chose "Bonfire" by Craig Morgan as his first song, firmly trying to hold on to his title as #1 in the rankings by opening the show with a crowd-pleasing performance. Judge Simon Cowell was happy he didn't "go all mushy" this week, but instead picked a song he should be recording. Britney thought he could do better, but Demi disagreed saying it was "amazing." L.A. thinks Tate is poised to win this competition.
Tate toned it down on his second song, going with "Fall" by Clay Walker, doing a straight up country ballad that probably made moms swoon everywhere. Demi exclaimed that his wife must feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
Carly Rose Sonenclar
Carly Rose has been another favorite to win because of her diva-like voice, despite being only 13-years-old! Her first song was one that both her dad and Britney's loved, she belted out a soulful version of Elton John's "Your Song," that took everyone's breath away, although Demi said it was "very predictable," meanwhile Britney was just proud.
In her second song of the night Carly decided to show off her musical chops by bringing out the piano to play while she sang on "Imagine," by John Lennon. It was beautiful, but Simon felt that the way the song was arranged was messy.
Emblem3 burst onto the stage with their one-of-a-kind energy on the number "Baby I Love Your Way," by Peter Frampton. L.A. told them they had finally hit their $5 million moment, and all the judges liked it - even Demi, who's been harsh in the past. They went for a true classic with their second number, "Hey Jude," by The Beatles.
Fifth Harmony decided to get decked out in Alice in Wonderland tea party dresses and moved from the tea table to the stage to sing Ellie Goulding's "Anything Can Happen." This has to be one of their freshest, most original covers to date and the judges ate it up, with L.A. calling it their best performance to date.
The girls took a risk on their second number by redoing a song they already did in the show, "Impossible," by Shontelle. While the girls did a great job, even adding an uptempo part at the end, they also got flack for retreading their tracks with Demi saying she hoped their fans supported them.
