With only hours remaining until the next X Factor champion is crowned, we’ve taken to writing pro/con lists, flipping coins, and consulting star charts to try and get the scoop on who will win Season 3. But while we can’t say definitively who is going to come out on top, we put the question to you in a poll a bit ago, and the results are in!
At the time, there were four acts remaining in the competition: cute couple with the sultry voices, Alex & Sierra, smooth-talking cutie Carlito Olivero, gravelly-voiced single dad Jeff Gutt, and country cuties Restless Road. As fans know — and as we watched in horror — the boys of RR hit the, uh, road last week, after failing to capture the votes of some crazies who don’t understand what’s good music America.
Most surprising? Well, 19 percent of you thought that Zach Beeken, Colton Pack, and Andrew Scholz were a shoo-in to win it all! And hey, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t right there with you.
Meanwhile, Carlito only made 5 percent of you giddy with the excitement of his imminent victory, yet here he is, warming up his pipes for the finale.
Is it about time for Jeff Gutt to get to the top? Nearly a quarter of you — 24 percent to be exact — know he started from the bottom, now he’s here. Without Restless Road around, will he be able to grab the vote from everyone who loved those fresh-faced boys, or will they head over to Carlito?
Well, it might not matter, because an overwhelming 52 percent of you think Alex & Sierra have this thing on lock. Are you one of them, and are you guys right? We’ll have to tune in on December 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT for Part 1 of the two-part finale to find out!
