X FACTOR RECAP: The Top 8 Tackle Chart Topping Hits - All the Performances!

Related: The X Factor, FOX

Tonight on The X Factor, the top 8 performed - whether you missed the show or just want to re-live a performance, read on for a full recap! The theme is supposedly "Number One Hits" tonight, but who cares? They toss the restrictions out the window the minute they have to limit someone's song choice to something as silly as a theme.

Diamond White kicks things off with Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." I think it's a good idea for her to branch out into songs that are more fun, so it pains me to say that this was so not great. It sounded like she was being overpowered by a karaoke track (even though, if I'm not mistaken, there's a live band) and the dancers did nothing but distract from what little we could hear of Diamond's voice. "I give you an A for effort, but I'm going to give you a B for execution," LA says.

She's followed by Vino Alan, who chooses "You've Lost ThaT Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Vino doesn't sound good either. The X Factor actually really has some stellar voices this season, but I'm just not hearing it so far. "To be honest, I do think that you had a lot of soul in your voice, but I wasn't totally entertained," Demi tells him.

Paige Thomas doesn't think that Demi understands her vision. "I want to dance," she says. Demi tells her that when she does all of her big productions, she placed low (truth). Paige meets in the middle to stage a lengthy performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley with backup dancers, but no overdone costume (remember rickrolling? Is that still a thing? If so, well played, Paige). It's not terrible, but I'm a little bored by it. Britney and the rest of the judges love it, though: "I think that this was a legitimate risk to take, but I think that it worked," she says.

Fifth Harmony chooses Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger," a choice that seems a little bit dubious but actually succeeds despite cheesy video clips of each of the singers standing in front of fake flames on the background screen. One of the girls (Ally?) lost her grandfather this week, and she's an understandable mess, but the rest of them pull together. "What a fantastic performance," says Simon.
