We wrongly predicted earlier that Britney would send home Beatrice Miller tonight. Since she and Carly Rose Sonenclar were safe, our batting average isn’t looking so great!

Arin Wray sang an emotional rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You.” L.A. said he had what it takes, and that it would be a shame for him to go home. Simon also felt he successfully sang for survival, putting Arin’s performance tonight in “another league” from his performance last night.

Diamond White, with the name tailor-made for pop superstardom, belted “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word.” Demi said Diamond gave them something new and said she should be proud. Simon said Britney has a tough decision and that neither of them should have to go home. 

Britney, who earlier declared that her four artists were like her children, unfortunately had to make an impossible decision, sending home Diamond. See, this is one of those times when The X Factor could use The Voice’s “Steal” Button. This elimination? DEVASTATING.
