The X Factor Results: Who Won Season 3?

at .

The X Factor Season 3 finale aired tonight and it featured One Direction and Lea Michele on stage, a horribly misguided video in honor of departing judge Demi Lovato and... oh... right:

An actual champion.

X Factor Finalists, Season 3

Before crowning a winner, the show paid tribute to Lovato - who confirmed this week she will not return to Season 4 - with a montage of her drinking a green liquid.

The punchline? Lovato downs "Annoying Juice." The reaction from Demi, an admitted substance abuser? "That's f-cked up," which she was caught saying multiple times to fellow judge Kelly Rowland.

As for the results? Carlito Olivero was the first act eliminated, leaving only Jeff Gutt and Alex & Sierra remaining.

And the winner is... ALEX & SIERRA!

"Thank you so much for getting us here and thanks for not making fun of my weird faces all of the time," Sierra said, clearly shocked, after the results were announced and before the duo launched into an emotional rendition of "Say Something."

Said mentor Simon Cowell: "I feel like Christmas just came early. Jeff, big respect ... You did brilliantly in the finale. But my heart was with these guys. Thank you, America."
