I totally blew the call tonight. I thought CeCe Frey and Fifth Harmony were goners. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Neither of them was even in the bottom three.
Instead, doomed R&B singer Paige Thomas was cut after what I thought was her best performance last night. But she never had a chance to win anyway.
Diamond White and Vino Alan competed for the sixth and final spot.
Vino slipped from third place to elimination in the end. L.A. Reid did him no favors giving him that Righteous Brothers song. It did not work and he lost votes.
The showdown featured White working Beyonce and Alan opting for Ray LaMontagne. The judges favored White.
Based on the votes below, it’s clear Carly Rose Sonenclar is solidifying herself as the favorite to win the $5 million contract. She was tops, ahead of Tate Stevens, for a second week in a row.
The top six:
1. Carly Rose (1st last week)
2. Tate Stevens (2nd last week)
3. Emblem3 (up from fourth last week)
4. Fifth Harmony (up from seventh)
5. CeCe Frey (up from eighth or ninth)
6 (or 7th). Diamond White (down from fifth)
