The X Factor final performances – care to predict a winner?

posted by Joanne Brokaw

Tonight was the final performance episode of this first season of The X Factor in the US, and what a way to end the competition. The three finalists – Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene, and Melanie Amaro – pulled out all of the stops for their final performances.

First, each performed a duet with a star, Josh with Alanis Morrisette, Chris with Avril Lavigne, and Melanie with R Kelly. While they were all good, only Melanie really looked at home singing with a star. (Although LA Reid, in typical fashioned, criticized her.)

Then the contestants each sang one final song. While Josh sang well, Chris and Melanie really connected with their songs – tears from them, the judges, their fans back at home via satellite.

If I had to make a prediction, I’d say Melanie and Chris will be the last two standing, but which one takes home the prize is a toss us. Talent-wise, Melanie wins, but both have such compelling stories, make fans feel so connected, and have so much to offer not only musically but emotionally and spiritually, that either could be the last singer standing.

What do you think? Which contestant will take home the prize? We’ll find out tomorrow on the results show!

Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. Honest.

Rock fans and women around the world are breathing a collective sigh of relief: Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. Despite rumors of his demise, the charming rock legend is alive and well.

It appears to have started with a fake blog post reporting that Bon Jovi suffered cardiac arrest. However at a little after 7:00 PM, this photo was posted on the official Bon Jovi band Facebook page, with the status update, “‘Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey’ -jbj. Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken.”

The news did give the Twittersphere an opportunity to have some fun at the rocker’s expense:

@Scott Nevins – “Just to clarify: Jon Bon Jovi did NOT die but Kim Jong ll did. I can see how people could be easily confused…”

@Aaron Sagers – “OK people, just to recap: Kim Jong Il is dead. Jon Bon Jovi is NOT dead. And in case you’re really behind, Mark Twain is definitely dead.”

@SketchofMD  – “Jon Bon Jovi isn’t dead and everybody born after 1989 is asking “Who’s Jon Bon Jovi?”

@mtabini – “Jon Bon Jovi reported alive. His good music is still reported missing.”

@ScuzzTV – “Jon Bon Jovi cannot be killed by conventional weapons. Also, don’t get him wet or feed him after midnight.”

And this tweet, which sums up the impact social networking has on pop culture:

@jonpyle – “What does it say about news that when I saw someone post that Jon Bon Jovi was dead, the first place I went to verify was Twitter.”
