WOO HOOO! :D GO JOSH! Oops, on to the post.
They celebrated Christmas by putting Christmas trees on the stage.
Filler, filler, Pepsi, commercial, filler.
Josh Krajcik: He was off during the beginning of the song. It was a weird song choice and then they introduced Alanis Morissette and she sang with him. WHAT?!?! I didn't get any of it. :/ It was better at the end, but it was really confusing.
Someone cut a rectangle in Nicole's shirt. Who the heck is choosing her outfits?!?!
Chris Rene: He was really off. Avril Lavigne came out in the middle of it. I don't like the whole celebrity singing with the contestants thing. It's confusing and weird. And for the record, Avril Lavigne sounds way better on soundtracks than when she does live. So if you're thinking about buying tickets to her concert, save your money. It was fun, but even she was off at some parts. The only part I really liked was when Chris rapped.
A video started playing after the song and random people were yelling support from the Santa Cruz nightclub where Chris used to sing. It was a little odd to hear Chris's next door neighbor yell, "I love you!" The baker was a little crazy, too. She even baked a cake with his face on it.
Melanie Amaro: She has the best voice in the competition, but she's not my favorite. R. Kelly came out during, "I Believe I Can Fly." Really good. There's not much more to say.
They should really get rid of the confetti. Melanie had to pick confetti out of her mouth so she could sing.
Melanie definitely won round 1 in my opinion if we're talking about being on key.
The judges argued about stupid little things. I say, "Blah. Get on with the show."
Hey crowd, how about you SHUT UP so the judges can talk?!?! Golly . . .
After the commercial break, giant knights came stomping out on the stage to advertise the cirque du soleil Michael Jackson thing. I have no idea what it is. Then the contestants came out to sing (excuse me, chant) while the knights started dancing like little kids that really had to go to the bathroom.
Josh Krajcik: I LOVE his voice! :D I can't say that enough. I LOVE his voice! :D I LOVE his voice! :D I LOVE his voice! :D I LOVE his voice! :D OK, maybe I can say it enough. ;)
I really like it when he has his guitar. It was awesome. AWESOME! :D SO much better than the weird duet he did earlier.
Nicole had a dead bird wrapped around her arm. :P
Chris Rene: YOUNG HOMIE!!! :D :D :D I would TOTALLY buy this song. Again he wrote it. It's really catchy, really fun, and really well written. Simon was even dancing a little in his chair and L.A. was singing along! :D It's really inspirational, too. I would buy Chris's album. I think he might win.
Paula went crazy! :D She stood up and started yelling like crazy about how good it was.
I love Chris's energy, too. I've changed my mind. I think he's going to win and I want him to win! :D
Melanie Amaro: She seemed to be wearing a mermaid tail or something.
She's amazing, but she sounds like a lot of other people. I've never once heard her hit a bad note, though. Not once. BEST PERFORMANCE YET. That was the best I've ever heard her sing. She was in tears afterwards.
Her "god-sister" (???) and the mayor of Sunrise, Florida are CRAZY. They were screaming about how good she was and how they know she's going to win.
Prediction: I don't care who wins. They're all good! :D I am kind of rooting for Chris, though. ;)
Comments: I hope Nicole wears pants for the finale. xD

X Factor: Finals!!! :D :D :D
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
