It was a shocking double elimination in "The X Factor (US)" November 29 results show. The first jaw-dropping moment of the night was when Paige Thomas got the boot for getting the lowest number of votes.

Paige, whose performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up" earned rave reviews on Wednesday night, showed her positive attitude. She said, "I'm excited because I get to go home and work hard and get better. I got bigger things to do and better things, and I'm excited for what I have in the future."

After last-season's runner-up Josh Krajcik took the stage to sing "One Thing She'll Never Know" from his self-titled album, it was revealed that Fifth Harmony, Cece Frey, Emblem3, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens were safe. It meant Diamond White and Vino Alan had to sing for survival.

"I'm not surprised about Vino because I just didn't like that performance last night, but I am surprised by Diamond," said Simon Cowell. Though the British producer wasn't that impressed by Vino's performance the night before, the result was still unexpected since Vino had constantly been in the top three in the last few weeks.

For the sing-off, Diamond covered Beyonce Knowles' "I Was Here". She got support from co-host Khloe Kardashian who said after the performance, "Diamond, I know you gave that everything." As for Vino, he poured his emotion into the rendition of Ray LaMontagne's "Trouble".

The judges then had to make the tough decision, with Britney Spears saying, "Both acts did an amazing job, but the act I'm sending home is Vino." Demi Lovato and Simon also voted off Vino, while L.A. Reid was the only one who rooted for Vino, his act.

"America didn't get to see half of what I have," Vino said after learning his fate. "I'm really shocked at this, though. Stay inspired, keep in touch. Unfortunately, I can't stop making music; I'm going to keep making music."

With the latest double elimination, Demi and L.A. are now down to one act each, while Britney and Simon have two acts apiece remaining in the competition. The results show also saw Alicia Keys making a performance of her new hit "Girl on Fire".

I totally agree with you Tiffany. Paige Thomas's reaction seemed bogus since it was such a surprise to everyone. Maybe she is just good at keeping a level head.. But that week's performance was her best ever, and I think she got paid off the show, or something like that. America couldn't have voted her off, it had to be the show trying to get more viewers by having a favorite be kicked off so dramatically and unexpectedly.

I can hardly stomach this show anymore. The ones I like always get eliminated.

XFactor is starting to decide who they want to stay and leave. Once again, a song gets snatched from an act and that act is sent home. Coincidence? I highly doubt it. Who has paid off the producers and who's going to be next?
