Last night one more finalist was eliminated from The X Factor. In another shocking elimination – the bottom two were Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty.
Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty had to sing for survival. This is the 3rd week in a row that Marcus is singing to survive and Rachel’s first time. They both sing their heart out and it’s time for the judges to vote.
LA: claims this is the toughest part of the show because they are both great and Rachel really surprised him because he thought she would be slaughtered by Marcus. She wasn’t but he stays faithful to his man, Marcus sending home Rachel.
SIMON: he stays true to Rachel, sending home Marcus.
PAULA: loves them both but sends home Marcus.
NICOLE: Has the deciding vote or they go to deadlock. Rachel interjects and tells her not to cry and that she would be happy either way. Nicole doesn’t want to send home either so she sends home Rachel, leaving it to America’s vote to determine who will go home.
The judges have now lost their power and the act with the lowest number of votes going home is: RACHEL CROW, who falls down to her knees crying, needing to be consoled by mentor, Simon and her parents. Rachel is screaming to her mom, “you promised” – it is heartbreaking to watch.
Rumors are out there that Disney wants Rachel – hopefully it is true and we will be seeing a lot more of her.
We have the video after the jump!!
