Tonight, on the LIVE results show, and in a shocking double elimination, Jennel Garcia, one of Demi Lovato’s Young Adults and Lyric 145, one of Simon Cowell’s Groups, were eliminated from THE X FACTOR. Hosts Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez announced that Lyric 145 received the fewest votes following last night’s performance show, immediately eliminating them from the competition. Then it was revealed that Garcia and Paige Thomas both received the next fewest votes. Judges Simon Cowell, Lovato, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears listened to the two finalists each perform their “song for survival,” and after deliberation, Garcia was sent home.
