X FACTOR RECAP: The Top 12 Becomes the Top 13; All the Performances!

Tate Stevens chooses Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead Or Alive." I'm not really a country fan, and I would definitely not change the radio station - his voice is resonant. It's not perfect, but for the first time I can see Tate getting the crowd really on his side and he lets go a little. "You nailed it," Britney says.

Lyric 145 chooses "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." Seriously. They do. And even though they're dressed from Alice in Wonderland, not Mary Poppins, I actually find myself enjoying their performance again. Everything they do, they just do so wholeheartedly and they always bring so much energy that it's infectious. "It was a really good choice of song. It's not my personal cup of tea, but I think it was perfect," LA says.

Diamond White's up next on "I Have Nothing." I stick by saying that nobody on a singing competition should sing Whitney Houston, but it does serve as a reminder of how well Diamond can sing. "You know what, Diamond?" Simon asks. "You've come back fighting, gutsy, great vocal, and I'm so happy you're back in this competition."

Cece Frey hits the stage, singing "Eye of the Tiger." Her leopard print is back, only now it's covering half her head as well. Truth be told, I'm not a fan of this song. I know, Rocky and all, but it's just a song that's kind of never grabbed my attention. I guess Cece does okay, but even the judges are lukewarm about it. Simon, once again, says that Demi's guiding her contestants the wrong way.

Carly Rose Sonenclar sings Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain." It's probably not her best performance - definitely better than last week's,  it's just not a song that does well when cut down to a minute and thirty seconds - but her voice is spectacular and she's still my favorite. "I think that this is you in your element, I would watch this over and over again," Demi says.

Jason Brock's song is "I Believe I Can Fly." The background is so cheesy. It's just tons of candles. And the performance is kind of the same (my musical-loving heart generally likes a chorus joining in at the end of the song, but everything about this was just kind of second season Idol). I like Jason, but he needs to do something new. "It's like you're in an Italian restaurant and just decided to sing 'I Believe I Can Fly,'" Simon says.

Fifth Harmony - formerly 1432 and before that LYLAS - takes the stage with Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years."  They feature the girl that Demi liked last time, but I have to be honest, I don't really see her as a lead singer type. There's definitely see improvement from last week, and in more than just the name. "I think you guys nailed it," LA says. "I couldn't be more proud of you, what can I say?"
