It was up to the judges, and it was no surprise when Demi stuck with her girl, Rion, and Paulina stuck with her boy, Carlito. Neutral judge Kelly Rowland said, "Congratulations to the both of you, because it's been nothing but focus and hard work that has gotten you this far. Rion, you are so young and have all of this heart and you come out and deliver each week. Carlito, I give you hell every week and you're so dedicated and focused and work hard." Kelly said that she based her decision off this Sing For Your Life performance and thought that neither Rion or Carlito were at their best, but ultimately she voted to send Rion home. Simon Cowell stuck his nose on the microphone twice and grunted as he agonized over this game-changing decision. Ultimately, Simon sealed Rion's fate and sent her home.
