X Factor Final Three


It's time to recap last night's X Factor result show. I actually missed the group performance but I heard it wasn't that great. Florence and the Machine performed, and usually I'm a big fan of hers, however  I wasn't feeling the song last night. Her vocals were on point, but overall I just didn't "get" the whole song. Nicole Scherzinger performed and did a great job, but again, I didn't "get" the song. She goes from singing dance hits, to belting out Whitney Houston, to singing opera, to an edgy rock-ish song. 

After the performances we finally got to find out what we really cared about; who would make it to the finals. Chris Rene was put through first, followed by Melanie Amaro. The "bottom" two were Marcus Canty and Josh Krajcik and of course Marcus was sent home. There you have it; the final three are Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro, and Josh Krajcik.  Personally, I think that Chris should have been replaced with Drew or Rachel just because I feel like Chris has been using his story more than the other contestants, which allows him to get the "sympathy vote." In regards to the finalists' talent, Melanie is clearly the best vocally, followed by Josh, and then Chris would be last. Does this mean that Melanie is going to win? In my opinion, no. I actually believe that she has the smallest chance of winning. Most of the voting is done by teenage girls, and the majority of them won't vote for another girl because they're always judging each other. 

I'm predicting a Chris Rene victory, as he is the contestant who seems to get the biggest cheers, the most buzz, and the judges have seemed to favor him and advertise him as the best throughout the whole competition. Melanie and Josh will both have careers after this show, but I really don't see Chris fitting into the music industry with the skill level he's at right now. Maybe he can write for other artists, or go into development for a year or two, but he just doesn't have the voice to make it in my opinion. Who do you want to win?
