Two eliminated in shocking ‘The X Factor’

SHARE Two eliminated in shocking ‘The X Factor’

Two people had their dreams crushed last nights in the shocking “X Factor” elimination show — Arin Ray, 17, and Beatrice Miller, 13.

That left 8 contestants going on to the next round.

Ray got the bad news first, just after the show had tried to prove it had a heart by tricking out a middle school music room with fancy, sponsor-provided equipment and inviting the school’s choir to perform, the LA Times reports.

Then, Miller and CeCe Frey discovered that they’d received the next two lowest numbers of votes and would have to compete for the remaining spot in the top 8.

It was up to the judges to make the call. Demi Lovato, Frey’s mentor, voted to send Miller home. And Spears, Miller’s mentor, opted to send Frey home.

Simon Cowell’s vote would decide whether Miller went home or the vote would go to deadlock. “You know what, Beatrice, I liked you from the beginning, but I think this is all getting too much for you,” he said. Though Cowell noted that Frey was a repeat visitor to the bottom two, that wasn’t enough to sway him. After telling Miller he didn’t think it was “the right time” for her, he cast the vote that sent her home.

Here are the rankings for the top 8:

1. Carly Rose Sonenclar

2. Tate Stevens

3. Vino Alan

4. Emblem 3

5. Diamond White

6. Paige Thomas

7. Fifth Harmony

8. CeCe Frey

What did you think of the show? Were the right two sent home?
