'The X Factor' Result: Rachel Crow Sent Home by America's Votes


'The X Factor' Result: Rachel Crow Sent Home by America's Votes


The judges' votes end in a tie for Rachel and Marcus Canty, but the former is eliminated based on who is getting the lowest votes from viewers.

The judges were forced to make a hard decision on "The X Factor (US)" top 5 result show. Following the Wednesday performance show, it was revealed on Thursday, December 8 that Marcus Canty and Rachel Crowe landed on the bottom two.

Marcus, who was also on the verge of getting eliminated a week ago, sang "I'm Goin' Down" for his survival performance. As for Rachel, the 13-year-old girl who appeared among the standouts since the beginning opted to deliver "I'd Rather Go Blind".

When it's time for the judges to decide who would be sent home, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell chose to save their own act as usual with the former rooting for Marcus and the latter voting for Rachel. Paula Abdul gave her vote to Rachel, leaving Nicole Scherzinger to make the deciding vote.

"I can't make this decision," emotional Nicole said. "I'll have to go to a deadlock." After host Steve Jones once again reminded her about the rules, the former member of The Pussycat Dolls tearfully chose to send home Rachel to make it a tie.

It was later revealed that Rachel had to end her journey on the show because she got the lowest number of votes from America. Breaking into tears after learning her fate, the young singer took a few moment before thanking her loyal supporters and said, "I know this is not my ending."

Next week, Marcus, Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene will continue their battle on the semifinal round to determine who will make it to the finals. HollywoodLife recently reported that Mariah Carey has been tapped as a musical guest on the December 22 final result show.

    It's a contest, was Rachel aware of this before she joined. It is an elimination process, what a bratttt!!!! some will win someone will lose that's life (even you're the best in what you do, you can still lose). As for that stupid Nicole, she may have been paid also to act like and say ah ah ah can't make a decision!! What a stupid looking cow, she thought the show was about her!!! Now the hatred towards her is pulsating from millions of viewers around the world (not only in America), she makes watching the show very painful. Good bye X Fucktor!

    Is it for the show rating that Nicole has to act an idiot or is she really is an idiot without any brains ... beauty to no brains... she was practicing her acting skills ... bullshit ... I can't make this decision... anyone could. I hope she will be off from the panel, it would make watching X Factor much better without her ...

    Hey all, We all loved Rachel and she will do just fine based on her talent. My concern is when she screamed at her mom "You promise me" as if any Mom could promise a win and putting her loss on her Mom who supported her through all of this. It made her look bratty. Also, when she told her fans, "without you I am nothing" I hope she doesn't really believe that because fame is fleeting and we have a whole fleet of washed up child stars who believe that as well. I hope she does believe she's something with or without the fame or fans.

    The problem is that the Host should not have told that Disney was really looking at Rachael. This makes voters think that she is going to be famous anyway or she is definitley going to stay so they vote another. Some people even vote the underdog. The show hurt Rachael by giving out this news. Also Niclole what were you thinking? Reason I know this is because this is what I was thinking. Now she gets the lowest votes.

    Simon, can America vote to say that we'd like to boot off Nicole and see a different judge in her place next year? The judges should do what they're paid to do. . . judge. If you want this different than AI, please get rid of Nicole. It made sense when you used deadlock because Canty and Bell were close that night. However, this performance was a no-brainer and Nicole's reasoning, and your denfense of her reasoning, is disappointing.

If you are going to sling around insults, then pull up your big girl panties and make a decision... Nicole needs to understand that the show is not all about her. She's just anoying!

    Indeed Rachel should have gotten it, but she was in the bottom two for a reason no matter what our opinion is. I know Nichole should have voted, but the rules did allow America to vote so you cannot blame the judges entirely. If anything America is to blame because I know their were alot more people out there who didn't vote that loved Rachel to pieces. Rachel has such a great voice though, we all know this is not the end for her. Best of Luck in your new career Rachel!

    I think Nicole did the right thing. it is obvious that Marcus is much better than Rachel. So she didn't want to lose a talent who is a star. To talk frankly Rachel is not a star. he is a star, that is needed in the xfactor!

    Totally disappointment, more so in the judges than anything else. If it billed as a sing off that is what it should be and it is clear that last night's performance wasn't considered. LA said that he is a man of principal but that would tell me that he would vote for the best performance from last night. That is NOT considered as integrity. Nicole totally let America down. Simon it is time to replace two of the judges.

    Rachael Crow is a singer, not a screamer like Marcus. He is always off beat. That was not fair. I am amazed by these two judges who can't judge a dog show. I will not be watching this show any longer. I will wait for American Idol.

    I think Nicole should have did her job and made the choice instead of making it a tie because she didnt want to send someone home. But lets face it that is what they are getting paid for to judge and tonight she did not do that.I also agree if they were going to a tie then america should have voted on the songs from tonight because that is why they were singing tonight to try to save theirselves.Rachel should have not been sent home and eveybody knows it. She should have been in the top 2.Nicole i can not beleive u could not judge tonight knowing who should have went home and i would not of had anything to say after the show either because u know u were wrong.

    What the point of having a save song IF the best performance does not go through ! Rachel gave the best performance last night and should have stay . Nicole tooks Rachel chance to go to the semi final but also to go to the final , as may be she would make it through next week . I think people did not vote because they believe Rachel was safe , i almost did not vote for her AS i believe she was safe , but then i did pick up the phone to vote . The good news for me , i don't have to watch the show anymore !!!! It is a terrible show , it does look like a freak show . Rachel is the only who has the X factor . It is Simon fault if she is going home , he really has not been a good mentor for Rachel Crow .

    America voted Rachael the least but for LAST NIGHTS performance. That is why there is a save me song - to redeem oneself. Clearly Rachael destroyed Marcus on this and Nicole should have voted based on this. Her inability or excuse - whatever they may be - goes against what she said last week when she let Drew go. Although it should be, it's not about not letting Marcus thought 3rd time rround, or the fact that Rachael has more potential, but the save me performance! YOU ARE A FOOL NICOLE.

Things happen tough luck, do not put the blame on Nicole, it is very hard choice, Marcus can deliver (therefore more votes) Do not hate, congratulate. I wish R. Crowe best of luck. She is gonna be fine.

    I watched the X Factor from the 1st show and it was good and the singers were very good but last night's show was kinda heartbreaking to see Rachel fall out and cry like that. Something went wrong and the viewers should not have to witness these kind of breakdowns. I was disappointed cause Rachel can sing! Marcus should have a sore throat today cause he really did hit some notes way out of his range and strained his voice badly. Don't wanna see babygirl cry like that, ever again,too painful.....

    If Nicole is too "fragile" to want to hurt the feelings of a contestant, she shouldn't be a judge. Her histrionics made me sick and poor Rachel the paid for her pathetic display. I have no doubt that Rachel will be fine and someone will snap her up pretty quickly if they have any sense.

    Not Nicole`s fault. As a judge she can abstain and give the power to the `jury` who is YOU the voters. And she did just that. I was refused a recording deal when I was 15yrs old which was hard to take in but now I`m medical doctor.

    LA Reid admitted Rachel was the better singer! Nicole and LA simply need to do their jobs. The purpose of a judge is to make difficult decisions and if they cannot, get rid of them. It is NOT fair what they both did to Rachel. Simon, you should take a hard look at how judges are conducting themselves and playing with kids lives just because of the principle of the matter or because they do not want to make that difficult decision. Simon you are going to lose the audience if this crap keeps up. IT is a talent show, not a personality show! What a joke...

    Why do they have a save song anyway? Why don't they just do it like AI and go with the lowest votes? It gets the contestants hopes high and it does not work. I believe Marcus would have been sent home 3 weeks ago if that were the case. He's an ok singer but not that strong. And I think everyone needs to leave Nicole alone already. Rachel is a sweet girl but a little spoiled. She is so young and has her life ahead of her. She will go places. I must admit that with her and Drew gone now, I will only watch Melanie perform next week. And if she goes, that will be it for me. Of the 3 guys, Josh has it all over the other 2. Big time. Experience, soul, life.

    Okay. I agree that Rachel out performed Marcus in Vocals, Performance, and Charisma. She is amazing. I believe Nicole did her a favor. How you say. Now this gives the producers the opportunity to bid for her amazing talent. Simon has done well as her mentor. So, let's not feel sorry for her, or be so vicious toward Nicole. Let's applaud Rachel's near future success. So little, enjoy the ride and much success to you and your family.

But, I think Nicole did Rachel a big favor. How, it now gives all those producers who will be after her on opportunity to bid for her. Lucky she has Simon for a mentor. Watch out Rachel, you are a hot item. Good luck little one.

    Nicole isn't spineless because she "didn't make a decision". Her decision was to let America decide who they wanted to go through and Marcus had the most votes. To me, that is fair. And Rachel is an amazing singer but she isn't mature enough to deal with being a celebrity. It's not like every singer always has gigs and is always selling records; a lot of the time they get told no. And she just showed that she can't handle being told no. I'm not blaming her for it she's 13 but I think there's a reason why there are no more kids on the show: they are not mature enough to handle a music career. When the older people went home they just accepted it even though it was worse for them because they have more to lose and less time to make it big. But Drew, Rachel, and Astro (the 1st time) just lost it and you cannot do that when something doesn't go your way.

    Nicole, do you know what the responsibilities of a judge are? Obviously not, your act was cowardly tonight, you just told America not to stand up and be counted, but to cowardly pass the buck. You should be dismissed as a judge for neglect of duty. Had you voted and she still went home you would have been respected, but you were a coward and because of it, the better of the two singers tonight went home. Shame on you.

    Based on Rachael reaction, she was too immature for this contest, plus America decided to send her home, not Nicole!

    Thing is Nicole made her decision, the judges should have to make the decision for the final two, it should be america's votes and rachel got the least votes, don't get me wrong I love Rachel but the point America did not vote her in, she will make it tho, she is awesome:)

    seriously?!?!? Won't be watching the show again......the 'x' that they're looking for is the controversy they're creating. Nicole is a fake. The save me songs were easy to judge. Rachel rocked it!!!

    Can we stop blamming the judges and start asking why Americans still voting for Chris Renae.

    I am surprised that there are those who called her a brat. Wow, we adults who are immature expect a 12/13 yr old to act as we do. News Flash "She is not an adult" - she is however, talented, has grace and as was said the other day, an old soul in a young person. She never failed to blow me away with her singing ability. Rachel will soar far above those on the show including the judges. You Go Girl!!

    Talented kid. But the music business is a "business" and the sharks will chew her up. After watching her meltdown, I don't think Rachel is ready for that.

    only fair thing of going to Americas vote would've been Americas vote on the save me song cuz then what's the point of the save me song if one person does so much better than the other and loses by supposed votes on a previous performance. They should've done a live audience vote and a new America vote for the save me song. Can't believe they let one or he top favorites go out like this. Damn you American I voted for Rachel but after this I will not be watching or voting again .

    Can't believe Nicole shattered the poor girls dreams like that by not judging fairly on the save me showdown and choosing to make it a tie . Even Reid said he has to vote for Marcus cuz its his guy and Rachel outdid him. Hopefully Nicole is replaced by a more emotionally stable good singer judge. Rachel was the xfactor! Very disappointmented.

    I agree that rachel was better on the save me song. i also think that going into deadlock is the honorable thing to do in letting america decide. however, it should have been done last week with drew and marcus. too many double standards and biases on this show

    Nicole you are stupid and childish. You did put an end to Rachel Crow on X Factor but she will be the end of you on everything. I am going to boycott X Factor (my favorite show) and I may boycott FOX Network if they keep you on. FOX, bring Rachel back or release Nicole before morning. She deserves the same hurt that she inflicted on Rachel. Guess she hadn't suffered enough in life, huh?

    UNBLEVIEBLE!!!! Nicole is a coward!!!!! I will never watch this show again and if Nicole had have done her job then Rachel would still be in Xfactor!!! Don't know if Nicole really understood the definition of 'judging' ...obiviously not unless she thought she had to just turn up and talk shite ...cause that's all she did!!! Rachel was brilliant tonight as always and if Nicole had've done the job that she's being extremely well paid for then Marcus would be the one to have left...shame on you Nicole!!!

    Dec 08, 2011

    Nicole ruined the whole show with her inability to make a decision on the save song where Rachel cleary blew this guy away. Does LA Reid own Nicoles music career or something. It's like she sold out and didn't make the eight fair decision. Deadlock is only if they had both sang just as good for a tie. But clearly that wasn't the case

    Nicole is payed to Judge talent. She is to decide who goes and stays. If she can't do her job, she needs to leave.

    Nicole knew Rachel was the best but she didn't have the courage to go against LA Reid (did you notice how she kept looking at him?). The entire show has turned into a contest and fight between the judges...the entire thing has turned into a joke!

    It is a sad day when a grown woman cares more about how she feels about having to make a decision because it was too upsetting for her...she had little regard for the fact that her decision was going to screw over the most talented contestant. I thought the point behind the judges was to judge...to make the decision. I like Nicole but clearly she is too emotionally cripple to handle this job.

    I can't believe people. What's wrong with you all? We all enjoyed Rachel it's true, absolutely talented,wonderful entertainer, but AMERICA sent her home. Whatever is all the hating and threatening Nicole about? Please let's stop being so silly. Rachel is going places man, watch and see!

    At this point in the season, it is clear that Nicole is the one that needs to go home. I'm a fan of the show, but I'm done watching her. I will literally fast forward through all of her appearances because she never has anything worthwhile to say, as was evident tonight. Rachel, you are amazing, talented and superb.

    How unfair! I was extremely disappointed with Nicole's inability to make a good decision. In fact, it is disappointing that the mentors can't see beyond themselves and judge the contestants honestly. I will not be watching this show next year.
