The X Factor

X Factor 2012 Top 8 Power Rankings: Carly Rose Wins, CeCe Frey Stays in the Game

The fifth round of X Factor Live Shows is complete! Now that Arin Ray, Beatrice Miller, Paige Thomas and Vino Alan have been birthed from the X Factor's womb and left for dead, the time has come to rank the remaining groups based on their chance of producing a winner. And guys? It's not looking good for Demi, or her miraculous ever-changing eyebrows.

Name: Britney's Teens
Members: Carly Rose Sonenclar and Diamond White
Ranking: 1
Pros: Britney is going to win this competition, and it's all thanks to her adorable indentured servant, Carly Rose Sonenclar. This gal's voice is crizazy-town, and now that she and Brit-Brit are wearing matching fedoras, they're unstoppable. And, yeah –– Diamond also has mad-skills, but to the left. Britney has no time for small children at the bottom of the leaderboard.
Cons: Carly really needs to work on her-sob story. Most of her competition are homeless street urchins straight out of Les Miserables (sob, I DREAMED A DREAM), and Carly's biggest gripe is that her brother is in college. We suggest that girlfriend runs away from home and lives under a bridge for a few months.

Name: L.A.'s Over 25
Member: Tate Stevens
Ranking: 2
Pros: Tate is just so lovable, guys. He's like a giant teddy bear who's also human, and we just want to hug him, cry into him, and tell him all about our crush on Justin Bieber. Plus, his performances have been stellar, heartfelt and entertaining, though we'd prefer not to see him dance. Just say no to the two-step, Tate.
Cons: Tate loves himself some Ed Hardy, and we think he might be moonlighting as a teenage girl who wears True Religion jeans and bedazzled Jimmy Choo Uggs.

Name: Simon's Groups
Members: Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony
Ranking: 3
Pros: Now that the Emblem3 boys and Fifth Harmony girls are totally hooking up, they're even more powerful. Both these groups seemed more cut-throat than ever this week, but you guys? Idea. What if Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony combined to form one supergroup called Fifth3? They'd literally be unstoppable.
Cons: We're worried that Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony haven't learned enough from their forefathers, N'SYNC and Destiny's Child. Matching outfits are really important — preferably jungle suits made out of polyester.

Name: Demi's Young Adult
Member: CeCe Frey
Ranking: 4
Pros: CeCe seriously will not leave. At this point, we're pretty sure she'd show up to perform even if she were voted off. This leopard-print loving bombshell is like the little engine that could, only she kind of can't. We love CeCe with a fierce passion, but will she be able to win the judges over? That remains to be seen.
Cons: All the judges hate on CeCe so hard, and it's just like what did she do to you? Nothing, that's what — unless being amazing is a crime, sob. If CeCe wants to stay in this game, she needs to work her audience — namely L.A. Reid. Dude feels neither chill bumps or goosebumps, and it's a problem.
