“The X Factor” Top 4 Becomes the Top 3 – Did the Right Act Go Home?

xfactortop3It was another emotional elimination tonight on “The X Factor” as the top 4 became the top 3.

Warning – Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched the show!

Mario Lopez revealed the top 3 one at a time and after announcing each finalist, they then took the stage to perform a song in hopes of winning America’s votes. The first act making it through to the finals was Carlito Olivero. Judging from Simon & Kelly’s faces, they were a little shocked. Carlito performed “Suavemente” for his song in hopes of winning USA.

The second act through to safety was definitely not a surprise – Alex & Sierra! Simon Cowell looked thrilled and we definitely think these two will be the ones to beat. Watch their performance of “Let Her Go” by Passenger:

And the final act to make it to the finals was…Jeff Gutt! That means country cuties Restless Road were sent home. Jeff then went on to perform “Open Arms.”

So what do you think about “The X Factor” top 3? Do you think the right acts made it into the finals? It was definitely an emotional night for Restless Road and Alex & Sierra who became bff’s on the show. Watch a tearjerking video of them saying goodbye below.

Be sure to tune in next week to see who takes home the crown! One Direction will also be returning for the finale.
