The $5 million stage is finally set.
The X Factor announced another elimination tonight, revealing the trio of finalists who will compete next week for the biggest prize in reality show history.
Following the online revelation that L.A. Reid will NOT return for Season 3, and Khloe Kardashian astutely noting that "These finals really mean everything to these contestants," the first act through to the finale was... FIFTH HARMONY!
From there, TATE STEVENS was declared safe, as the country singer breaks down in telling his wife they made it.
So, will it be Emblem3 or Carly Rose Sonenclar joining that pair next week? America has voted and... Emblem3 is eliminated!
Simon assures the trio that it will have a great career, but it not as the season two X Factor champion.
Did the viewers make the right call?
