The X Factor final four results: Marcus goes home

On tonight’s The X Factor results show, Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene went through to the next round and Marcus Canty was sent home.

OK, OK, I know, I know. I ‘ve been hard on Marcus Canty the last few weeks, so you may be thinking that I’m happy he went home tonight. I wasn’t happy to see anyone go home, but it was the most logical outcome. After three weeks in the bottom two, it seemed like this was going to be his time.

To his credit, he was as positive and upbeat and gracious as always. While I haven’t been a fan of most of his performances (he’s so talented but he was given corny stage productions with too many slinky dancers for my tastes), he’s a super great guy and I hope he goes on to great things. I’m sure he will.


Asked for his parting comments, Marcus said, “This is not the last time you’ll see Marcus Canty. God has blessed me so much.”

Also on the show, we saw performances from Florence and The Machine and Nicole Scherzinger. Loved them both.

Next week the final three contestants perform – yesterday I predicted that Melanie and Chris would be the final two standing, and I think Melanie would win. But to be honest, it’s really a toss up. All three of the final contestants are super talented with huge fan followings and I’d be happy to see any of them win.
