Dear residents of Planet X: It’s all happening. Here, tonight, you, us, Carly Rose, Tate, Emblem3, Fifth Harmony. It’s the semi-finals, y’all, and it’s about to get real. Demi Lovato has nothing left to lose, so we’re hoping that she’s going to get even more critical of Simon’s acts.

And as much as we love Tate, we have a strange unfulfilled need to watch L.A. cry on live television. Will Britney Spears bring Hannah to the set and let her judge instead? The final four will dazzle you, delight you, and make you giddy with anticipation. But in the end, there can only be one, and tonight’s episode is one step closer to five million dollars.

Tune in at 8PM PT/ET for the two-hour show on FOX.
