It was an emotional night as the Top 8 performers made dedications to the loved ones they're thankful for. But tomorrow may be even more emotional as we say goodbye to two more contestants. If you want to make your voice heard about which performers should return next week, you gotta vote, and there are a bunch of ways you can cast your vote. 

How do you vote? When do you vote? Where do you vote? How much do you vote? Here are the deets:

You can vote in four ways: by phone, text message, online, or on the mobile app. We will be updating this article after each performance.


1) Phone. Each act will have a toll-free number shown after they perform. You can call and vote AS MUCH AS YOU WANT for whomever you want.
Diamond White: 855-843-9301
Vino Alan: 855-843-9302
Paige Thomas: 855-843-9303
Fifth Harmony: 855-843-9304
Carly Rose Sonenclar: 855-843-9305 
Tate Stevens: 855-843-9306
CeCe Frey: 855-843-9307
Emblem3: 855-843-9308 

2) Text. Well, this one is only open for Verizon subscribers, since they are a major sponsor of the show. Each of the acts will have a four-digit code listed (it's the last four digits of the phone number above) after they perform. Vote as much as you want thataway by texting "VOTE" to the number corresponding to your pick.

3) Online. If you have a Facebook account (and you probably should at this point. Come on, even our grandparents’ pets have Facebook accounts.), you can vote online at www.TheXFactorUSA.com. The FB part is important, because it’s there to guard against voting fraud (which is apparently a thing). You can vote a ton online — up to 50 times with each account.

4) Mobile App. Again, with the Verizon. You can download the “Xtra Factor App” from the Android store. It’s all really confusing and factors in things like whether you have a handheld device or a tablet (um, aren’t they both handheld?), whether you need to log in with Facebook or not, and probably something having to do with the way the stars are aligned with the moon and planets... but the gist is that you can vote at least 50 times with it. More details here.

Got it? Good. Go team (enter your favorite here).
