Wow, what an upset! We think most people expected Fifth Harmony to be eliminated tonight on The X Factor, but instead, they were the first artists sent to the finals. Brittany certainly seemed put out by that result!

On the other hand, it’s no surprise that Tate Stevens also made it through to the Season 2 finale on December 20, 2012. He’s consistently been in the top two since the beginning of the live performances, swapping between first and second place with fellow front-runner Carly Rose Sonenclar.

Carly, on the other hand, found herself in the unfamiliar position of facing elimination. However, Emblem3 was sent home instead, and Carly advanced to the finals along with Tate and Fifth Harmony.  Next week, the three remaining contestants will face off in a final performance show to determine who will win the $5 million contract.
