The X Factor final 5 perform 2 songs each (videos)

Chris Rene performed an original song; it was one of  my favorite performances on a great night of music

We’re getting down to the wire on this first season of The X Factor. Last night the final 5 contestants performed two songs each – the first their version of a dance song, and the second a song of their own choosing.

It was a bit of a twist. The second song was supposed to be the Pepsi Challenge song chosen by fans, but there was some kind of snafu, so 24 hours before last night’s live show the contestants were told they needed to sing their “save me” songs instead.


Everyone did a great job – it was actually an entirely enjoyable night of music. I even enjoyed Marcus Canty’s performance, particularly his second song, “Song For You.” If you  missed the show, here are the performance videos. We find out tonight which contestant heads home:
