Does Carlito Olivero have what it takes to be crowned the winner of The X Factor 2013? We’ll find out soon enough.

The X Factor’s Season 3 finale airs on December 18 and 19, and that means Carlito will be facing off against fellow Top 3 finalists Jeff Gutt and Alex & Sierra for his shot at the crown.

The 24-year-old from Chicago has fought hard to stay in the competition, and that fighting spirit just might get him an X Factor win. We know it’s already won him the adoration of his fans back in the Windy City.

Take a look back over his performances from the December 18 show, then head below to the comments and let us know if you think Paulina Rubio’s mentee has what it takes to triumph over the remaining two acts.
