X FACTOR RECAP: Four Contestants Eliminated; Top 12 Revealed!

Related: The X Factor, FOX

It's the results night of The X Factor and sixteen contestants will be whittled down to twelve - if you want a refresher on last night's performances, click here, and read to find out who'll be singing again next week!

Demi's group, the young adults, faces the chopping block first. Paige Thomas, who's wearing a giant hat, is through; joining her will be Jennel Garcia, which means Cece Frey and Willie Jones will have to sing for their lives - metaphorically, of course. Cece chooses "Out Here On My Own" from Fame, and I think Demi's face during the performance says it all - it's really rough. Or maybe I'm just insane because all of the other judges like it.

Willie sings "You Don't Know Me." The version of the song I know is by Ray Charles, but I assume he's singing the Willie Nelson version because it's totally country and totally back in his safety zone. I liked it better than Cece's pitchy performance, but I'm not sure if it was better.

Demi decides that Willie is headed home. Khloe keeps yelling "Congratulations Cece!" and trying to grab her arm. Note: sensitivity is not Khloe's strong point. Willie says he's grateful for the experience and Demi says she believes in him and he needs to go home and figure out what he's going to do, which is for the most part common sense.

LA chooses Vino Alan and Tate Stevens to continue to the top twelve out of the Over 25s, leaving David Correy and Jason Brock. Second note: ushering people around the stage ia also not one of Khloe's strong points. She just grabs people's arms and "guides" them to where she wants them to go like she's helping an old lady across the street...only the lady's not moving fast enough so she gets a little aggressive. 

Anyway, David Correy chooses Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" with a slow arrangement that really showcases his voice. Demi and Simon think it was melodramatic, but I think that David is kind of a melodramatic performer - not that that's always a bad thing. Jason, for his part, takes on Whitney Houston's "One Moment In Time." Okay, I really do like that Jason is clearly embracing the experience and having a blast doing it, but why would you pick this song? Even if he delivers a perfect vocal (he doesn't, but it's not the worst ever), it's still not Whitney Houston.
