Lea Michele will debut her single 'Cannonball' on 'The X Factor' finale

Get ready for some FOX network synergy: "Glee" star Lea Michele, who is releasing her debut album, "Louder," in March 2014, will perform her first single, "Cannonball," on "The X Factor" finale Thursday (Dec. 19). The singer/actress announced the news on Twitter Sunday (Dec. 15), prompting finalist Sierra Deaton, of the frontrunner duo Alex and Sierra, to tweet an incredulous "WWWWHHHHAAAAATTTTTTT?!?!? MY HEART." The big two-hour finale will also feature performances by One Direction, Mary J. Blige, and judge Paulina Rubio. The winner will be decided from the three remaining acts: folky duo Alex and Sierra, rocker Jeff Gutt, and Latin pop star Carlito Olivero. "Cannonball" will make its official radio debut on New York's Z100 on Monday (Dec. 16). Hear the Sia-penned song (and Michele's delightful Celine Dion-esque pronunciation of the word "cannonball") below:... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/lea-michele-debuting-cannonball-on-x-factor-finale-sierra-deaton-is-excited-as-you-are.html

X Factor 2013 Top 4: Ratings Fall Again for — But How Much?

Season 3 of The X Factor is almost over: The 2013 finale airs just next week. Sadly, though, ratings for the Simon Cowell-fronted singing competition aren’t picking up as the show races towards its climax. The December 13 episode saw country boy band Restless Road eliminated from the competition, and a total of 4.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the show. That’s more viewers than tuned in for NBC’s The Sing Off, but sadly, the rival show ended up with a higher demo rating: 1.4 to the X... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/q9KK0aKsR20/2013-12-13-top-4-ratings-fall-again

X Factor 2013: Should [Spoiler] Have Gone Home?

Okay, so we fully realize that tonight’s elimination on Season 3 of The X Factor isn’t as big of an upset as if say, Alex & Sierra had gone home. But it still certainly comes as a shock.

'The X Factor': Restless Road think Alex and Sierra will win

A lot of times the acts kicked off of "The X Factor" are in tears talking to reporters backstage after their elimination. That wasn't the case for Restless Road, who were cut one week shy of making the Season 3 finals. The boys were as happy and energetic as ever when discussing their cut. "We're just happy to make it as far as we did because we almost didn't make it anywhere past the second round," Andrew Scholz tells Zap2it. "We got nos in the boys category, then we got put in this group which was just a blessing. We're so happy to be where we are." Their mentor, Simon Cowell, looked mighty disappointed when the boys didn't advance to the last week, but Zach Beeken says Simon knows they tried their best. "Simon really wanted us to be in the finals -- as did we -- and then we didn't make it there and... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/the-x-factor-restless-road-think-alex-and-sierra-will-win.html
