You know how sometimes there is that baseball game where it’s a total blowout and you don’t really care, but it hurts more when you lose by one? Well, what stands between our four hopeful X Factor friends (sorry Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony, we love you like one person) and the chance to win a $5 million record deal is TONIGHT. Three will move on to the finals, and one will be “Locked Out of Heaven.”

As is fitting for a semi-finals results show, all sorts of changes have been made. First of all, there will be NO singing for survival today, folks. The world is a popularity contest — and XF agrees. Well, mostly. While they’re kicking out the least cool kid(s), they aren’t going to tell us who the queen of the week is. Yep, that’s right, the ranking system is officially dunzo. Also gone? Judge voting. Let’s hope they dress up real purty (let’s give the leather a rest today, okay, Brit?) because they are there for looks and awkward faces only.

Tune in to FOX for the hour-long live results show at 8PM ET/PT and catch Bruno Mars singing that song we mentioned above (hint: it’s the one in properly formatted quotation marks).
