Last was a night of great performances on the X Factor. The contestants all performed well and it is going to interesting to see which two acts will go home tonight. Melanie Amaro really emerged from her shell last night and for the first time we really got a chance to see who the real Melanie is. Marcus Canty song, dedicated to his mother was very touching. Astro apologized but it somehow lacked sincerity; one get the feeling that he still thinks he is too good to ever be in the bottom two. Rachael Crow gave a very energetic performance. I admire her confidence and I do believe she is headed for a great career in the music industry. LeRoy Bell, Josh Krajcik, Lakoda Rayne, Drew and Chris Rene all performed well; so the question is, who is going home tonight? We will just have to wait and see.
