It was all nerves being wracked and feelings galore over here as we waited to see who would go home on X Factor December 6. Simon Cowell  predictably voted to send Diamond White off to save his mentees, Fifth Harmony. Britney Spears followed the same path, voting to keep Diamond in the competition. L.A. Reid also voted to send Diamond home, leaving the final decision up to Demi Lovato. In the end, Demi voted to send Diamond home as well.

We were SHOCKED by the decision, as she has rocked the mic with a star quality that cannot go unnoticed. Although Diamond was flabbergasted by the choice, she acted more mature than her 13 years, saying that she was “thinking of Cher Lloyd, who finished fifth, and look where she is now.”

Brit told Diamond, “You’re so young, and the world is yours.” Um, which we guess is comforting? Must feel better than Brit voting her off (as she did the first time). So, why is Diamond going home? Our guess is that she was probably taking votes away from frontrunner (and Teen teammate) Carly Rose Sonenclar. What do you think? Was this the right choice? Would you have rather had Demi vote Fifth Harmony off and let America’s vote decide? Weigh in.
