Taylor Swift to Perform on FOX's THE X FACTOR, 11/15
Last night, on the first LIVE results show of the season, it was announced that Jason Brock, one of L.A. Reid's Over 25 finalists, was eliminated on THE X FACTOR. Hosts Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez announced that Brock and Cece Frey received the fewest votes following last night's performance show. Then, judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears listened to Brock and Frey each perform their "song for survival." After the judges came to a deadlock, Brock was sent home, based on the number of America's votes he received. Also tonight, for the first time on any singing competition ever, this week's individual vote rankings were revealed, from the bottom 12th act to the No. 1 vote-getter.
Earlier in the show, One Direction - the global sensation that rose to fame on the U.K. version of "The X Factor" - performed "Live While We're Young" and "Little Things."
Next week, on Wednesday, Nov. 14 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), THE X FACTOR finalists: Teens - Beatrice Miller, Arin Ray, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Diamond White; Young Adults - CeCe Frey, Jennel Garcia and Paige Thomas; Over 25s - Vino Alan and Tate Stevens; and Groups - Emblem3, Fifth Harmony and Lyric 145 - perform LIVE for America's votes.
