    Well, Simon Cowell pulled off the miracle that he asked for. How much was down to America responding to the call for the ‘underdog’ vote, or the vote still being more volatile than most of us thought, including myself, is really just speculation. In truth, 5th Harmony had a very good night with both their songs. But that was true of Emblem 3, who I thought had a stronger core vote at this stage.
    The big loser on the night was Carly. A ‘so-so’ song sung in very similar style to she has done before, followed by a huge song which she did not pull off.
    Carly, and her mentor, do have a problem when it comes to extending her range, along with the limitations of ‘appropriate’ songs for her age. The other problem is with her voice. By that I mean, she has a great top range, she can flow at less than full throttle in songs like ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’, but her quiet voice is not quite there yet. ‘Imagine’ needed a easy going soft voice, followed by an understated build …. not that over-the-top blast she gave here?
    Just because 5th Harmony were the first name called does not mean they topped the popular vote. I expected the 3rd placed one to be called first for the dramatic effect it had on the remainder, but it wasn’t Emblem 3. So, unless someone messes up badly, it looks even more likely to be a Tate Stevens win. The only surprise will be with the other two positions. Can 5th Harmony repeat/do better than last time? Or will Carly redeem herself with better song choice and performance?
    No one will lose out completely, but it will be a major surprise it Tate does not get the £5m contract.

    They are all very good, too bad someone had to go. As far as the girl band, they are just getting better and better all the time. what are they going to be like in 6 months or a year. Carly has the best vocals and Tate is great.

    In all honesty there is no point in arguing over who’s better between Fifth Harmony and Emblem3 because at the end of the day neither of them is the best performer of this show. It’s really a toss up between Tate and his strong country music fan base and Carly and her rhythm and soul music fan base.

    Plus, Simon said he would give the boys a record deal regardless if they won or not so you’ll be hearing from them again anyway. They really didn’t need to win.

    The problem with this show is that unfortunately there is no balance to make it realistic.
    This show is supposed to be a singing competition yet since most of the American votes are 40+ year old woman favoring a country singing working dad (I did not say he was bad!) is getting pushed ahead and they are not taking seriously the extremely hard work that a 13 year old girl puts in every week to deliver the incredible performances that she does.
    Carly Rose Sonenclar should cleary be the winner if this was truly a singing show as she is without a doubt..Fantastic.
    Sorry to say that because of the flawed vote, the title will go to Tate.

      Technically, “The X Factor” isn’t just a singing competition, it’s an overall performance competition. So it’s not just about how talented someone is musically, it’s also about how captivating of a performer they are throughout the competition. Which is a little more realistic with how people tend to vote.

      They vote on how much they like the performance and not always who’s the better singer. But you are right about it being unbalance. Personally I think more shows need to do what shows like SYTYCD does, when the audience vote is only part of the score and the remainder comes from a panel of professionals in the industry.

      But I still have hope for Carly to come out on top. It just takes attentive votes for her to win.

    I think emblem3 deserved to go they are another cheesy boy band doing california songs half the time they werent in tune. yes i do admit there were good on that show but 3 or 4 songs out of say 15 to 20 is not good they cant sing in tune and only really appeal to teenage girls and long haired boys and lets face it they have no chance against carly nobody has she has a voice like no other she pretty much perfected most songs from legends whitney, celine, adele, elton john, john lennon, beyonce

      Yeah you’re right and i hate also the fact that some compare them to One Direction who also didn’t win X Factor UK, 1D is a way better than Emblem 3,…

  • Christina

    OMG TO BE HONEST, IM HAPPY FOR FIFTH HARMONY. They Emblem 3 is awesome, but we don’t need another ONE DIRECTION.

  • Faith

    Okay emblem3 are amazing they should not have gone I am so mad

  • Kronic

    I like Carly. She has the best vocals out of the set in the finals. Go Carly!! I am your fan!

  • lamanirolle

    i love E3 they will sell more records than fifth harmony this show is a joke

  • ANON

    Fifth Harmony do not deserve to still be in the competition

    • Cristina

      They’re amazing. Emblem3 needs to go!

      • ANON

        lol no they are not amazing other competitors that have left deserve to be here way more than them

        • omoigroove

          woops replied in separate post!

          Basically, I agree with ANON. Between Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony I’d pick E3′s music any day. The girls might have good voices, but they neither have the stage chemistry and charisma nor a defined style and original material like the boys have. Look up their original stuff, seriously it’s really good.

          In the long run, Fifth Harmony will be manufactured into a throw-away pop group that sets a few of them on their solo tracks.

          • kourtneystromberg

            I couldnt agree more. <3 only that i REALLY think emblem3 are amazing.

          • Cristina

            How long have Emblem3 been together versus FH? The girls have been together less than three months and the most difficult part they have conquered, their voices flow. Give them time and they will continue to improve.

            I personally don’t go to concerts to watch someone dance around. I want to hear amazing vocals. I don’t care about anything else.
