The X Factor: The Search for the Star of the World’s Next “Iconic” Pepsi Commercial reached its semifinal round on Wednesday night, and there was plenty of good news to share.

The X Factor Top 5 Results Recap: Did the Right Act Go Home?
Sometimes it lasts on The X Factor, and sometimes it hurts instead. And indeed, this week’s Top 5 results-night telecast featured the hurting kind of conclusion — no matter which of the bottom two acts had your loyalty.

Season 1 of The X Factor is down to just five contestants, but fret not: There are still five massive judges’ egos to help fill out the 90-minute episode. Actually, Melanie Amaro, Marcus Canty, Chris Rene, Josh Krajcik, and Rachel Crow will be singing two ditties apiece — starting with …READ MORE
Stacy Francis Talks X Factor: Astro's Tantrum, 'Purple Rain,' and That Tom Cruise 'Connection'
Stacy Francis brought drama to The X Factor stage right from her audition — a tear streaked rendition of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” — all the way to her final moments on the stage (a tense judges’ vote on whether to cut her, or petulant rapper Astro). TVLine caught up with Season 1’s 10th place finisher to ask her about controversy over …READ MORE
The X Factor Top 7 Results Recap: Simon, Are You OK? Are You OK, Simon?
“Do not move! Do not move!” commanded the world’s most high-profile automaton, Steve Jones, heading into another leave-us-all-in-suspense commercial break on this week’s X Factor results show. (Dude, if we’ve already endured a 15-minute recap of the previous night’s performance telecast and the umpteenth overbearing use of “Carmina Burana” to signal This Is An Important Show, we’re not about to go flipping the flipping channel.)
Anyhow, in case you’re unfamiliar with how these double-eliminations go: …READ MORE
The X Factor Recap: No One Wants to Be Defeated
“Paula Abdul is no longer a mentor,” a practically giddy Steve Jones informed us at the top of this week’s X Factor Top 7 performance show. But Strong Chin With Devastating Cheekbones (clad in double-breasted gray pinstripes!?!?) didn’t realize that his nemesis at the judges’ table wasn’t destroyed by last week’s ouster of Lakoda Rayne, but rather freed up to launch a sold-out tour of Cirque du Abdul: ¡Gobbledygook!
Indeed, Michael Jackson Week found Paula trotting out some of her loopiest critiques of the season, telling wee rapper Astro that …READ MORE

The X Factor Top 9 Results Recap: Did the Right Two Acts Go Home?
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like winning a reality singing competition and becoming a global music superstar (please pardon the Kelly Clarkson paraphrase). Others wind up respectively landing in eight and ninth place, which doesn’t quite have the same confetti-from-the-rafters, loved-ones-crying-tears-of-joy, celebratory ring to it. …READ MORE
The X Factor Top 9 Performance Night: Follow Along With Our Pithy Live Blog!
There’s no denying the awesomeness of Thanksgiving — in fact, I just had a brief food fantasy about the whoosh of a can-opener breaking into a tangy container of processed cranberry sauce — but I’m a little more dubious about “Giving Thanks” as a theme night on The X Factor. I’ll say this: If it involves any of the Top 9 acts covering “I Believe I Can Fly,” “The Greatest Love of All,” or “Jesus Take the Wheel,” I’m going to start drinking this Sauvignon Blanc straight from the bottle. …READ MORE
