'The X Factor' Recap: The Top 9 Perform Songs That Give Thanks (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 23rd 2011 12:45AM
Josh KrajcikIt seemed as though the 'X Factor' mentors had a far better grasp of this week's nebulous theme of "songs that give thanks" than they did of "rock" or "songs from movies," but were you thankful for the performances?

Paula spent two hours in a perpetual state of teary-eyed incoherence (no change there), Astro was ... vaguely repentant over last week's "incident," and were it not for Paula and Nicole, I think Simon and L.A. would've started a slap-fight over Drew's performance. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Hit the jump for our verdict on this week's especially tearful thankful installment, and weigh in on your favorite performances.

'The X Factor' Recap: The Top 12 Perform

The X Factor JudgesAfter weeks spent shaking our heads at the judges' questionable contestant choices, the power is finally in America's hands this week, with the Top 12 'X Factor' finalists competing for your votes to remain in the competition. And, since the show was officially renewed for a second season earlier today, expect to see a whole lot more of those questionable contestant choices to come.

We got a taste of the production value and format last week, but that was just a dry run, and this week, a mediocre performance could score any act a one-way ticket back home.

Which acts brought their A-game and which were content to coast on audience goodwill in the first week of voting? Will Stacy Francis' negative press affect her chances, or are audiences more likely to target Astro for being the only rapper in a singing contest?

Join us after the jump for our verdict.

Are Simon Cowell's 'X Factor' Contestants in Danger?

Simon CowellFor music mogul Simon Cowell, passionate fans and security threats are nothing new; the man has made a career out of being the judge that audiences love to hate (and hate to agree with).

But the contestants on his reality shows aren't so accustomed to such fervent attention, and no matter how harmlessly enthusiastic the 'X Factor' crowd may be, it's somewhat inevitable that fans will get out of hand sooner or later.

According to TMZ, Cowell is concerned that the popularity of his three contestants (Melanie Amaro, Rachel Crow and Drew Ryniewicz) poses a serious security risk, after the girls were reportedly mobbed during a casual visit to the mall.

'The X Factor' Recap: The Judges Choose The Top 12 (VIDEO)

X FactorThere were some controversial choices made during the judges' houses round of 'The X Factor,' but our mentors had the chance to right many wrongs with this week's live elimination show, as each category had to narrow their finalists down to three in order to proceed to America's vote next week.

Up until tonight, the groups seemed like the weakest category by a mile, but smart song choices and confident choreography helped Paula up the ante and raise her category to the standard of the soloists -- though I doubt even the smooth moves of the Stereo Hogzz can compete with the likes of Drew, Josh or Stacy.

Join us after the jump to find out who made it into the top 12 to compete for your votes next week.
