Carly Rose Sonenclar, Tate Stevens, and Fifth Harmony made a grand entrance into the X Factor Season 2 finale, with contestants pulling up on the red carpet in chauffeured cars and singing their way onto the stage.

Will Simon Cowell Be the Next Judge to Leave X Factor?

Although he hasn’t always been our favorite mentor... or judge... or wearer of deep V-necks, we were shocked to hear that L.A. Reid will be leaving X Factor next season. Rumors have been circulating for weeks that Britney Spears — and her $15 million contract — may be too expensive to stick around for Season 3. Fellow first-year judge Demi Lovato has also been a candidate for dismissal. But with L.A.’s announcement, it is unclear what either newbie’s fate will... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/6Na078riyYQ/will-simon-cowell-be-the-next-judge-to-leave-x-factor
