The competition is also a nearing the end on "The X Factor (US)". After "The Voice" announced its Top 3 earlier this week, it was the rival show's turn to reveal who would compete for the winner title of its season 3 on Thursday, December 12.
After a performance by the Top 4 who covered Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)", Carlito Olivero from the Boys group mentored by Paulina Rubio was the first to be announced safe. It was quite unexpected since Carlito landed in the bottom two last week and was in jeopardy twice this season.
Enrique Iglesias catered the crowd with a musical performance of "Heart Attack" before the second act who made it to the finals was announced. Coming as no surprise, frontrunner Alex & Sierra was sent to the finals, leaving it between Restless Road and Jeff Gutt.
In the end, Restless Road had to pack their bag and leave the show for getting the lowest votes, while Jeff joined Alex & Sierra and Carlito in the Top 3. Simon Cowell bid farewell to the country boyband he formed earlier in the season, but he's still got the singing duo representing his Group team.
The two-part finale of "The X Factor (US)" season 3 will air next week on December 18 and 19.
