The final four acts of The X Factor USA 2013 have gone on stage for the last time before the finale. Viewers were asked to pick songs for the top four semi-finalists to sing this week and after hundreds of thousands of votes, here is what viewers decided they wanted to hear from the final four:
Alex & Sierra: Of Monsters and Men, Little Talks
Carlito Olivero: Justin Bieber, Boyfriend
Jeff Gutt: Jeff Buckley, Hallelujah
Restless Road: Luke Bryan, That’s My Kind of Night
Demi no longer has any acts in the competition. Kelly Rowland has Jeff Gutt, Paulina Rubio has Carlito Olivero while Simon has Restless Road and Alex and Sierra.
Celeb Dirty Laundry has a roundup of the judges’ verdicts on every performance by the final four:
