We believe that at the end of the night, who won The X Factor 2013 would come down to a very slim margin. Although Alex & Sierra appear to have the lead in many fan polls, Jeff Gutt had an extremely strong social media backing on Twitter and Facebook. We are pretty sure poor Carlito Olivero wouldn’t be the one who won The X Factor season 3, but we think he should be very proud he made it this far against such stiff competition.
While we were personally cheering for Alex & Sierra to win at the end of the star-studded The X Factor finale this week, we understand why his fans love Jeff Gutt. He’s a rocker, he has a more mainstream appeal than Alex & Sierra, and his obvious adoration of his cute son gives him a sweet and sensitive site as well. Plus, he gave it all he had on part one of The X Factor season 3 finale in his final performances, there is no doubt of that!
Yesterday, we were hoping it would be Alex & Sierra who won The X Factor 2013. After last night’s peformances in part one of The X Factor season 3 finale, we believe if they don’t win, it would be a total shock. However, while we think they should be the ones who will win The X Factor 2013 tonight, fans of Jeff Gutt and Carlito Olivero aren’t giving up quite yet.
The only The X Factor spoilers we have to go from on who wins season 3 are the results of fan polls and iTunes rankings. According to those, it appears that Alex & Sierra will be the winners by a significant margin. Most of the bloggers out there are also giving it to Alex & Sierra, with the general consensus being that they dominated last night’s performances.
Figuring out who won The X Factor season 3 is a lot tougher than predicting who would win The Voice season 5 on Tuesday. We would like to just call it right now for Alex & Sierra, but our pick for who will win The X Factor 2013 may be more sentimental than logical. While we think the quirky lovers deserve to win, we worry that the voters will decide to go for a more mainstream choice.
If you look back at all the performances of the final three acts, we feel Alex & Sierra of Team Simon Cowell have given the most mesmerizing and spectacular moments on The X Factor season 3 of all of them. While we like Jeff Gutt of team Kelly Rowland, we tend to be more moved by his adorable son than his vocal prowess on stage. Sometimes, he just feels only a couple of steps above a really good karaoke singer and he tends to just push everything too hard. As for Carlito Olivero of Team Paulina Rubio, he’s a cute guy with a fun style, but we just don’t feel he’s a superstar in the making and his voice is sometimes rough.
No matter who got voted off The X Factor 2013 tonight from the Top 6, we were going to be bummed. We honestly think most of the remaining finalists are special in their own ways. We were especially afraid that adorable Rion Paige might be the one who went home on The X Factor season 3 this week.
We admit we are a sucker for Rion’s incredibly bright spirit, even if she’s not the best singer left in the competition. So it was with a heavy heart we watched The X Factor results show tonight, thinking it might indeed be her who was eliminated. If not her, we were really hoping it wouldn’t be duo Alex & Sierra either because we just love those wacky kids, even if they aren’t really Sonny and Cher reincarnated as Paulina Rubio would like to think.
Going into The X Factor results show on Thursday, we are pretty sure which acts are going to end up in the bottom this week based on last night’s performances. Predicting exactly who got voted off The X Factor 2013 from the Top 6 is a bit more difficult. We have an idea about which acts would probably be the ones who went home on The X Factor season 3 in this round, but the viewers are a fickle lot and you never know until the last vote is counted.
Based on her track record so far and her performances last night, we are relatively certain that Ellona Santiago will not be one of the two who got eliminated on The X Factor 2013 this week. Figuring out what will happen from there more of a roll of the dice. All of the rest of the acts have solid fan bases but none of them seem to really stand out over the others all that much.
