‘X Factor’ Eliminations Leave Demi Lovato Abandoned

Little Mix and Emblem 3 hit the stage during the results episode.

Demi Lovato had a rough night on “The X Factor” on Thursday. Both of her remaining contestants got sent home from the competition, leaving a final four that doesn’t include either Ellona Santiago or Rion Paige.

Santiago was the first one sent packing during the hour-long results episode. The 17-year-old received strong marks for her performances on Wednesday’s episode; Simon Cowell told her she was “in it to win it” after her performance of Lady Gaga’s “Applause,” and Lovato told her “you definitely are the type of person that could win this competition” following her performance of Beyoncé’s “If I Were a Boy.” However, the votes did not go her way, and when she was eliminated, Kelly Rowland’s mouth hung agape and Lovato could be heard on microphone saying, “this is ridiculous.”
