The time has come to pay respects to our fallen homie, Beatrice Miller. Which is why we're currently pouring Pepsi all over the floor and wearing a plaid shirt on top of another plaid shirt (meta plaid shirts). Bea was one of our favorite contestants, but we need to move on and let this week's three best performers suckle at Simon Cowell's proverbial teat and rise to the top. But who are these lucky contestants? Read on, gentle souls.

1. Carly Rose Sonenclar
Carly Rose is like the Heart of the Ocean from Titanic. In other words, she's a rare jewel who's survived the sinking ship that is Khloe Kardashian's run on X Factor. Carly's performances always slay, but she took things to a new level with her stunning rendition of "Rollin' In The Deep" by Adele. That's right, Adele. Our minds = blown. Also, Carly > all your faves.

2. Paige Thomas
Wowie zowie, guys! Paige has a great sound, but she hasn't been the most notable performer on The X Factor. Well, that all changed today after a "groovy" (Mario's words) rendition of "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley. It was the perfect combination of subtle and dramatic, and we half expected the cast of Rent to climb down from the fire escapes and be all "never gonna give, never gonna give!"

3.Tate Stevens
So, Demi basically confessed that she's in love with Tate Stevens, and it's like join the club, girl. The judges were peeing their pants in excitement over Tate and his Ed Hardy t-shirt, and his performance of "Somebody Like You" by Keith Urban made us clutch our pearls like we've never clutched them before. Who else feels a sudden urge to roll around in a bale of hay while wearing a cowboy hat?
