The X Factor Results: Who Advanced?

at . Comments

And we're down to the... Dirty Dozen? Delightful Dozen? Daring Dozen?

We'll work on that, but either way: 12 contestants now remain on The X Factor after the audience voted its first contestant off tonight. Who advanced?

The following six names received the good news first:

  1. Arin Ray
  2. Paige Thomas
  3. Diamond White
  4. Vino Alan
  5. Jennel Garcia
  6. Emblem3

From there, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Tate Stevens, Beatrice Miller, Lyric 145 and Fifth Harmony were also left off the hook, leaving CeCe Frey to do battle with Jason Brock for the final spot.

Frey belted out a version of "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," while Brock went with "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and, with the judges splitting their vote, the final say went to America.

Which was bad news for Jason Brock. He was sent packing.

"I want to say I did it for the gays and Japan," Brock joked about getting the boot, while L.A. Reid hugged him and added: "I'm still proud of him. Every time he sang, he sang from the heart. He is very entertaining and I really loved working with you."

So... did viewers make the right choice? Did Brock deserve to go home?
