The first live show was aired last night to an unsuspecting audience. Regrettably, we have to admit that almost none of the contestants were able to pull it off. The 16 contestants went head-to-head last night for a spot in the finals, but most of them completely lost it halfway through their performances. Did you watch last night’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you!
My favorite singer from last night’s show was Carly Rose Sonenclar who sang Good Feeling and was mentored by Britney Spears – Carly’s vocals felt slightly unnatural, but her performance made up for the staunch discomfort of the vocals. She delivered, mostly. There were plenty of issues with her pitch during the up-tempo middle-parts of the song. She also lacked that beautiful zest that made her so popular in the beginning. It was above-average and better than most of the vocals of the night, but she can do so, so much better. Who was your favourite of the night? Do you think we got it wrong with certain contestants? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
On tonight’s show 50% of the contestants will be safe, while the other 50% will be up for elimination by the judges. There will also be no official voting by the audiences at home. By the end of the show the Top Finalists will be revealed, and return the following week to face America’s vote.
So don’t forget to come back to this spot at 8:00 PM for our live recap of The X Factor USA the first live show recap at 8:00 PM EST!
