Which Top 3 ‘X Factor’ Contestant Do You Want to See Win? – Readers Poll
It’s down to the final three contestants for the second season of ‘X Factor,’ with girl group Fifth Harmony, country crooner Tate Stevens, and teenage songstress Carly Rose Sonenclar fighting for the big prize. Out of the three acts left, which contestant are you rooting for to win ‘X Factor’ gold?
Since we’ve got a group, an adult male, and a youngster still in the running, it’s also worth mentioning that mentors Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears also remain in the competition. Throughout the second season, we’ve seen Cowell coaching the five dazzling young ladies of Fifth Harmony, who range in age between 15 and 19. The girl group was assembled during the Boot Camp rounds of the show, and if Cowell’s success with One Direction is any indicator, Fifth Harmony could go on to become international superstars.
Even though they’ve been ridiculed for, ironically, their lack of harmonies, the girls have proven that they belong in the competition with strong performances of tracks like Demi Lovato‘s ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ and most recently, Ellie Goulding‘s ‘Anything Could Happen,’ which has been one of their most memorable thus far.
In order to win, however, Fifth Harmony will have to beat out country artist Tate Stevens. Under the guidance of L.A. Reid, Stevens hasn’t swayed from his country roots at all on ‘X Factor,’ and this has definitely given him an advantage. Not only does the niche genre make him stand out from the pop acts he’s up against, it’s also where Stevens’ true talents lie, as he’s blown us away with his performances throughout the second season. Like many of country’s greats, he can deliver emotive ballads beautifully, like Shania Twain‘s ‘From This Moment On,’ and he can bring the energy with more uptempo tracks like Keith Urban‘s ‘Somebody Like You.’
Finally, there’s pint-sized songstress Carly Rose Sonenclar, who has been lucky enough to have Britney Spears as her coach through her ‘X Factor’ run. The 13-year-old might be young, but age is nothing but a number for this young’n. She has consistently blown the roof off the ‘X Factor’ auditorium with her huge vocals, and her ability to absolutely slay songs from a variety of genres is another great skill. She’s made Brit proud with her amazing renditions of Beyonce‘s ‘If I Were a Boy,’ Celine Dion‘s ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ plus more.
