Learning that her remaining two groups are in the bottom two on this week's result show, Paula gets emotional and nearly gives up her right to vote.
Another group was sent home from "The X Factor (US)". After dodging the elimination when they were in the bottom two along with InTENsity last week, The Stereo Hogzz were eventually sent packing on Thursday, November 10's result show, which saw Willow Smith and Jessie J as musical guests.
The Stereo Hogzz were not the only group in jeopardy that night since Lakoda Rayne joined them in the bottom two. Paula Abdul went emotional when she learned that the remaining two groups which she mentors were both in danger of getting the boot. "It is a nightmare situation," she gushed.
The Stereo Hogzz and Lakoda Rayne then made their survival performances. The former belted out Michael Jackson's "You Are Not Alone", while the latter did a cover of Jordin Sparks' "No Air".
L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger voted to save Lakoda Rayne and send home The Stereo Hogzz. When it was her turn to give her vote, Paula initially refused to make a choice. "I'm not gonna do this. I'm too close to both acts, and I love them both," she reasoned.
After a moment of crying, Paula finally decided to save The Stereo Hogzz. Simon Cowell, who had the deciding vote, did no favor for the five boys as he chose to send them home.
Lakoda Rayne and the remaining solo contestants will return next week on the top 10 performance show.
