'The X Factor's' CeCe Frey responds to Simon Cowell: 'I'm not packing a suitcase'

CeCe Frey is the fighter who just won't give up on this season of "The X Factor."She's survived an elimination sing-off in three out of the four weeks of live shows. If you believe the judges, she may be singing for survival again this week thanks to her elaborately staged take on "Lady Marmalade." After her performance, Simon Cowell flat out told her: "My advice tonight is pack a suitcase." But Frey says she's happier than ever on the show, and finally feels like she's found herself as an artist. "I definitely felt like that performance tonight was all me, and I have not been able to say that about my performances in the past," Frey told reporters after the show. "I know I tried to say 'This is great, I love this.' No. I have not had more fun on this show than I've had doing that performance tonight. It was so sassy and...

The X Factor: Finalists Sing for a Spot in the Top 6

The Top 8 finalists on The X Factor tackled chart-topping songs Wednesday, knowing that Thursday they'll face another double elimination on Fox's singing show. With only a fraction of a percent separating the Top 4 contestants after last week's show, the competition is getting fierce. Also getting fierce? The banter between judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato , with Lovato not responding well to Cowell's criticisms of her contestants, and chiding him about everything from his age to his bachelor status. Cowell responded by telling the 20-year-old that he had sold more than 300 million records in his career. (Snap!)

The X Factor Top 8: Totally Frey-ed

Can Carly Rose stay on top? Will CeCe Frey finally sing her way out of the competition? How low can Khloe Kardashian sink as host? Enough with the pressing X Factor questions... on to this week's performances! Diamond White , " I Wanna Dance With Somebody " - Whitney Houston once again. The girl's got guts. She's also got a different version of this classic, starting it slowly and very effectively. But the confetti then pours down and the back-up dancers kick in as the tempo speeds up... and it's like White gets lost in the production. Read More...

X Factor 2012 Results: Who Is Going Home on November 29?

The week’s X Factor theme was “Number Ones,” and some contestants took that to heart, while others let the pressure take them down a notch (or hella notches). While we enjoyed the whole show, some of the renditions left a lot to be desired. Was Paige Thomas’s national Rickrolling grounds for dismissal? Are you tired of Diamond White sounding so good and yet... not quite getting there? Did you think Vino Alan’s performance was the worst thing that ever happened...

'The X Factor': Paige Thomas puts a sexy spin on 'Never Gonna Give You Up'

The Top 8 took the stage this week on "The X Factor" and not very much changed. Tate Stevens was still smooth country, Carly Rose Sonenclar was still a little diva and Emblem3 was still boy band heaven or hell (depending on your point of view).But the one act to really step up her game was Britney Spears' Paige Thomas putting a sexy spin on Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up."It might be enough to keep her safe after she landed near the bottom of the rankings last week. This week, CeCe Frey and Fifth Harmony may be on their way out.What did you think of Paige, and who's your "X Factor" favorite?...
