We are a few weeks into live shows and it’s time to put some skin in the X Factor game. We’re into the Top 10 now, and that means there are only nine people left who are going home with nada. (Or who will soar above everyone else, if this is anything like the XF UK).

Right now, Tate Stevens is ranked number one for the second week in a row, with Carly Rose Sonenclar close on his heels. Vino Alan has done better than expected, and is currently ranked third.

Emblem3 is quickly climbing the ranks, jumping up to number 4 after last week’s live results show. Although she almost went home two weeks ago, CeCe Frey is sitting pretty in fifth place as it stands now.

So, will one of these five take the five million dollar prize? Or will it be one of the lower ranked contestants who comes from behind to take it all?

Even though Tate has been ranking high, we can’t see him winning the competition. The reason Demi Lovato was brought in was to raise teen and tween interest in the show. It’s not hard to see that Britney Spears is there for similar reasons.

So, who will win the show? Our money is on Carly Rose or CeCe, who have both been amping up their social media involvement to try and get more votes. Carly Rose has been adored from day one, but she has yet to show us her vulnerability. Once CeCe is able to show her vocals (minus the producer-inflicted autotune sounds) and her true self, we think America will love her. And, more importantly, vote for her.

So, what do you think? Weigh in below.
