The X Factor’s Diamond White “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World”: Which Performance Was Better?

Diamond White blew the judges away the first time she stepped on the X Factor stage to audition in September. In a sea of mediocre Adele covers and songs that failed to show off the hopefuls’ voices, Diamond’s rendition of "It’s a Man’s (Man’s Man’s) World" brought the whole room to life and sent her through to Boot Camp. On the December 5 show, Diamond once again sang the James Brown original, this time in a more stripped-down, but still... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/WsnPUQgnbW8/the-x-factors-diamond-white-its-a-mans-mans-mans-world-which-performance-was-better

The X Factor’s CeCe Frey: You Have to Fight for Who You Are — Exclusive

X Factor Season 2 finalist CeCe Frey has undergone an incredible transformation in front of live audiences — and a panel of judges who don’t always understand her style. The 21-year-old postal worker from Decatur, IL, walked into her audition with leopard-print face paint and walked into the Top 6 with bleach-blonde hair and new famous friends. On December 5, 2012, CeCe opened with a toned-down cover of "I’m on the Edge" by Lady Gaga, following up with a... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/_AyRP9tAgQU/the-x-factors-cece-frey-you-have-to-fight-for-who-you-are-exclusive

'The X Factor': CeCe Frey, Emblem3 respond to criticism from Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell continued their "X Factor" feud this week, delivering brutal critiques to their rival's acts: CeCe Frey and Emblem3.Lovato kicked it off by slamming Emblem3's "unplugged" performance of Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" as "a downgraded version of the Jonas Brothers five years ago." Oh, snap!"That was incredibly dumb what you just said actually," Cowell responded. But backstage after the show, the guys of Emblem3 had a different take on Lovato's harsh words."You know what it is," Drew Chadwick explains. "She's got one of those old school schoolgirl crushes, where the only way she knows how to flirt is by being mean.""Like Helga from 'Hey Arnold!,'" Keaton Stromberg chimes in. "She has a shrine in her closet.""You should see Demi's closet!" jokes Chadwick.The guys admit the judges' bickering can be a distraction, but they're also able to tune it out."When that happens it's more like they're going at it,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/the-x-factor-cece-frey-emblem3-respond-to-criticism-from-simon-cowell-demi-lovato.html

The X Factor: Who Did Simon Threaten to Put in the “Naughty Chair”?

Viewers got a double dose on The X Factor Wednesday night, with each of the remaining six acts performing two songs — the first an unplugged number, and the second a song chosen by viewers — as they attempt to move into next week's semifinals. For the audience-chosen performances (a.k.a. the "Pepsi Challenge" — yay sponsorship!), viewers weighed in not only on the song choice, but also on everything from the act's wardrobe to the stage lighting. Suffice it to say, we hope the show goes back to having the judges make these decisions next week. So, which two contestants should be sent home on Thursday's show? Here's a breakdown of their performances: http://www.tvguide.com/News/XFactor-Top6-Simon-Naughty-Chair-1057240.aspx?rss=breakingnews
