X Factor Elimination Shocker Leaves the Final 5

X Factor Elimination Shocker Leaves the Final 5

The X Factor Final 5 has been revealed after a shocking double elimination Thursday night.

Controversial kid rapper Astro was sent packing first during the show after receiving the least amount of votes. The other two with the least amount of votes was soulful crooner Marcus Canty and judge Simon Cowell’s personal favorite Drew.

After the two acts battled it out with their “save me” songs the judges took a vote on who should stay or who should go. Drew has seemingly been a fan favorite while Marcus has been in the bottom the past two weeks. So it seemed rather easy to predict which way the votes would go. Wrong. Judges L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul all voted to send Drew out the door. So that’s where she went.

Blogs are buzzing that the Drew paid the price for what has been a battle among the judges all season. Each judge mentors a group of contestants, and up until Thursday, Simon’s contestants have all remained unscathed. So it seems the other three judges we ready for Simon to be humbled one way or another.

The shock on Simon Cowell’s face left many people wondering if the other three judges will have jobs next season. They’re all thankful for contracts, I imagine.

So the X Factor Final 5 are Marcus Canty, Rachel Crow, Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik.
