While the night's elimination came as a surprise (doesn't it always?!), the biggest reveal of the night was, for the first time ever, when the public vote was shown and ranked all contestants from 12th place to 1st place. You might be surprised who came in first!
Before we get to all that, the night, which featured Glee star Lea Michele in our oh-so-loud audience, kicked off with an exciting performance by One Direction of their mega-hit "Live While We're Young." The screaming in the house was off the charts as the guys took the stage amidst a colorful backdrop and a stage full of red British phone booths. The five studs made the crowd go "crazy, crazy, crazy" in their black, white, and red super-slick duds. The giant red and white huge balloons at the end? Cray-cray!
Showing off their funny side, the guys joked around about having a sixth member in footballer Drew Brees. "1DB forever, right?" joked Drew. All good fun to show off their hilarious new commercial!
The first six acts voted through to the Top 12 by YOUR votes were Arin Ray, Paige Thomas, Diamond White, Vino Alan, Jennel Garcia, and Emblem3. Congrats to all!
OMG. Cute footage alert! Tonight's show aired One Direction footage from THE X FACTOR UK when Simon Cowell turned the five hopefuls into the supergroup that they are, just before taking the stage for their second performance for their romantic ballad "Little Things."
Next up, five more lucky acts are off the hook on through to the Top 12 and they are: Carly Rose Sonenclar, Tate Stevens, Beatrice Miller, and Lyric145.
That leaves CeCe Frey, Fifth Harmony, and Jason Brock left standing. Fifth Harmony got the good news and is off to the Top 12, leaving CeCe Frey and Jason Brock with the lowest number of votes and forced to sing for survival.
"CeCe's voice is going to say it all," said Demi. In her second song for survival performance of the season, CeCe sung her little heart out on an emotional rendition of Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me." Jason was next up and gave Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" his all.
Nail-biter time! Each judge now gets to decide which act they want to send home. Demi sent home Jason. Well, she wouldn't send her own act home! Ditto for L.A. Reid, who kept Jason and sent CeCe home. Britney chose CeCe, and now it's up to Simon, who chose Jason. That's two and two. Deadlock time! The act with the lowest number of votes from YOU is the unlucky contestant and that was...Jason Brock. Congrats to CeCe, and we'll miss you Jason.
Jason's parting words? "I want to say, I did it for the gays and Japan!"
