The X Factor USA Semi-Finalists Revealed 

SPOILER ALERT: Tears as two more acts go home...

SPOILER ALERT: This story covers episodes which are yet to be screened in the UK.

Two more contestants have been given the boot on The X Factor USA – revealing the acts to appear in this year’s semi-final.
Demi Lovato cried as she said goodbye to her last remaining act in the competition. 

“I have grown so close to you, I’m just so proud of you," she told CeCe before giving her a big hug.

Simon Cowelland Britney Spears chose to save their own acts – with LA Reid also choosing to save Fifth Harmony (SiCo’s act).

The deciding vote went to Demi who sent Diamond White home.


The losing contestant took the news fairly well, making reference to the UK’s Cher Lloyd who went out during the semi-finals in the competition here - and who impressed when she performed on the US show recently.

She said: "I'm just happy that - I'm thinking of Cher Lloyd. I mean... look where she is. When I get off tour, I'll be sure to come back here with one of my hit songs and I'll perform for you guys."

Mentor Britney agreed, telling the young performer: "Sweetie, I just think that you're so young, and the future is ahead of you and the world is yours."

Of the semi-finalists remaining, cowboy hat-wearing Tate Stevens is once again in pole position, having come top in the public vote – followed by Carly Rose Sonenclar.

The semi-finalists will battle it out next week.
