VIDEO: X FACTOR Top 12 Pay Tribute to Lou Reed
In a dramatic LIVE results show, Sweet Suspense, one of Simon Cowell's Groups and Rachel Potter, one of Kelly Rowland's Over 25s, were eliminated on THE X FACTOR. Tonight, host Mario Lopez announced early in the broadcast that Sweet Suspense had the fewest votes following last night's performance show, and they were eliminated immediately. Khaya Cohen and Rachel Potter received the next fewest votes and the judges - Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio - listened to the two acts battle it out in "The Final Showdown" sing-off. After an emotional deliberation, Potter was sent home.
