Who Was Voted Off The X Factor USA Semi-Finals? – 12/13/2012

The X Factor results show for the semi-finals round is finally over and we know who is going on to the finale next week! The top three acts have been announced and you might just be surprised which remaining contestants will be battling it out in The X Factor season 2 finals. Did your favorite act make the cut on The X Factor 2012 results show for season 2 tonight? Read on to find out who got voted off The X Factor tonight!


This post contains The X Factor USA spoilers for the top 4 semi-finals results show. Please stop reading if you do not want to know what happened and who went home on The X Factor 2012 season 2 this week!


Before The X Factor results show on Wednesday night, the odds seemed very strong that Carly Rose Sonenclar of Team Britney Spears and Tate Stevens of Team L. A. Reid would almost certainly both make it through to the finals. The two solo singers have been swapping first place in the voter rankings back and forth for weeks. One week Carly Rose was on top, the next it was Tate and vice-versa. Thus, it seemed highly unlikely either would be the one who was voted off The X Factor tonight.

On the other end of the spectrum, it seemed relatively inevitable that either Fifth Harmony or Emblem3 from Team Simon Cowell would be the act voted off The X Factor 2012 season 2 this week. Neither act has ever managed to climb all the way to the top in the voter rankings. Both have had a roller coaster ride all season and Fifth Harmony even came very close to being eliminated last week.

The first act announced as safe for the night came as something of a shock to quite a few fans, myself included. I really did not think this act would make it through to the finals, but obviously the voters had a different idea. The first act declared safe on The X Factor 2012 results show for the season 2 semi-finals was… Fifth Harmony of Team Simon Cowell. If your reaction to reading that is WTH–you are not alone. Considering how strongly the fan polls were trending that Fifth Harmony would be eliminated, I really do not get how they survived unless the ‘vote for the worst/least likely to win’ contingent was incredibly strong this year.

The next act announced as safe on The X Factor season 2 results show tonight was far more predictable. The second act chosen by the voters to go to The X Factor USA finale this season was… country singer Tate Stevens.

After what seemed like two hours instead of just one, a bunch of guest performances we could have done without, and far too much dramatic music… we finally arrived at the last announcement of the evening. The final act going through to The X Factor finals next week was… thankfully and no real surprise here… Carly Rose Sonenclar.

So the answer to who got voted off The X Factor tonight and will not be going on to the finals this season is… Emblem3. Sorry guys, but it was a good run.

  1. There’s only one winner and no other than Carly Rose! She’s so great, very talented and well spoken. And yes Britney she is the definition if xfactor :)

  2. I have no idea what show most of u people r watching??? There is only one singer this year and that is Tate. Look back at last years performers that went to the live shows, and u wonder why this years viewing audience is down by the millions???? Hum!!!!!!!

    • Tate sounds like most CW singers. Carly owns her songs and could sing the phone book. I think Tate will win it purely on his maturity,

  3. Tate or Carly……but I prefer Tate

  4. Truly Carly is THE X FACTOR! She is AMAZING
    …a true child prodigy!! Tate is good but Tates are a dime a dozen….Carly is genuinely and uniquely talented beyond her years and her only not so good performances have been poor song choices by her loser mentor! I do not care for any of the mentors…GO CARLY!!

  5. Carly fan 1 says:

    My favirotes is Carly but emblem 3 was my second fav I just hope 5 harmony or Tate Stevens don’t win . GO CARLY!!!!

  6. Hey people! The stars of this show are REAL people, they have feelings. Sure you have favorites and like somebody better than another, but that gives you no right to degrade him/her. Just keep it kind, you never know how your words will affect someone.

  7. It was time for emblem3 …. they were certainly not finale material. Karaoke singers at best.

  8. I think the country guy is the best. And 2nd carly but 5 harmony or what ever their called their not good they probably got in to the finals bec of their sex. Because carly was way better than 5 har- . I hope they dont win….

  9. this is such nonsense.. america needs better taste

  10. No Carly was NOT in the bottom. They picked the finalists at random and chose not to rate them. There was a poll online some 3or 4 thousand folks and the rating was:
    Carly 56%
    5th Harmony 23.5%
    Tate 12.6%
    Interesting IMO.. No doubt the votes went to 5th Harmony over Emblem 3
    I truly would like to see Carly FTW however no matter what she will have a contract and no doubt will become a star!

    • That’s an ONLINE POLL not the x factor one… it’s not the same… duh?

      • Thank you for your courteous comment. First there is no XFactor poll, and the contestants are not being rated as to standings. The online poll interestingly chose the actual three finalists.. even if you do not agree.

  11. I am a Carly fan but she is lucky she made it. The song selection that she has to work with is poor. I just hope she gets some good songs for the final, or Grace will be correct, the country music voters will propel Tate as the winner!

  12. OMG Cary was in the bottom and got third place, this proves that we only voted for Fith Harmony because the sang in Spanish, what is wrong with America now!!!!!! Carly FTW

    • It doesnt mean Carly was in the bottom. Remember there is a leaderboard blockout. She still could have gotten first or second if america thought tate did well.

  13. Grace Sweet says:

    I know American love’ s country music …good luck three of you guys…

    • I think we have the right to know the number of votes for every competitor.Random is ethically not correct when singer with the highest voting is nervous and standing all time on the bottom. This year X-factor is very poor for talents. In final they have only one gifted singer – CARLY. Remember how many talented singers were in American Idol on top 20 and how difficult it was the choice?
      Commonly juri is not professional. Their mentority especially blocks up the objectivity. Even competition between solo and group singing is a nonsense.
