Week 6 of the USA X Factor will be definitely be remembered for a while. Two of the best contestants on the show also the youngest were shown the exit by the public after two nights and one of the judges left in a huff. The two nights was dedicated to the great Michael Jackson with all the contestants performing some of his well known tunes.
Astro was the first contestant to be eliminated after performing Black or White. Still optimistic despite being so close to the end. Looking at it as an achievement he has managed to make it to the last 7 competing against 200,000 other people during the competition. He had seen the signs coming that his exit was getting closer as he checked the online blogs during the competition to read the reactions of the fans.
On Thursday the final elimination was between Drew and Marcus Canty who was int he bottom for the second week running. Drew performed Listen to Your Heart by Roxette for her elimination song whilst Marcus performed Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye) by Gladys Knight & the Pips. Paula Abdul and Nicole gave their votes to eliminate Drew after being more moved towards Marcus’s song then Drew’s.
The decision to eliminate Drew was tough for Simon Cowell to take even suggesting that he had let her down and take full responsibility. He begged for the girls to give Drew another shot but in the end Paula sent her packing, leaving Simon Cowell storming off stage refusing to speak to anyone.
