'The X Factor': Carlito Olivero wants to be the Latin star pop music needs

Pop music needs a Latin star right now, and "The X Factor" finalist Carlito Olivero would like to be that person. "I feel there has been a void in the market for a Latin artist for a long time," he tells reporters after last week's semifinals results. "I remember back in the day turning on the radio and Latin artists were dominating the radio. That kind of faded away, and I'd like to bring back the true R&B and hip-hop and definitely want to put a new Latin face on music and at the same time tour around the world. I feel being here is an amazing opportunity. I'm so in love with life right now and blessed." Olivero hasn't exactly been a shoo-in during Season 3 of the FOX reality competition -- he sang for his life in the Bottom 2 multiple times, and didn't always receive the best feedback from the judges.

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.

'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 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.
