And then there were 10 on The X Factor.
A night after the judges showed their teeth when called upon to defend their teams, two acts were eliminated—and neither was named Arin Ray or CeCe Frey.
Meaning, two acts that were not in danger of going home last week were sent home Thursday.
Personally, we thought Lyric Da Queen & Co. were excellent performers, but they ended up with the least votes—apparently L.A. Reid's "last week was horrible, this week was better" commentary had an effect.
But the real shocker came with ouster No. 2: Jennel Garcia.
Perhaps even more shocking? The fact that Jennel had to have a sing-off against fellow Demi mentee Paige Thomas, while both Arin and CeCe were safe.
"Just happy that I've come so far," Jennel said meekly when asked how she was feeling. And was there anything she wanted to say to Demi?
"Thank you" was all she could muster.
So...what do you think of think of tonight's elimination? Sound off in the comments!
