Motown Week? Really, Simon Cowell? What is this, American Idol? With that being said, I will say for the most part, The X Factor finalists delivered solid performances. There wasn’t a true trainwreck from the Top 13. Yup, you read that right.. Top 13.

Cowell and company agreed that one contestant was robbed during last week’s show and brought them back. The lucky recipient was Josh Levi. BOO. It should’ve been James Kenney. I only commented on my Top 5 picks, but you can check out all the performances below. See if you agree with my choices.

Breaking News: Due to a technical glitch, there will be no elimination on Thursday’s show. Check out FOX’s statement below.

As a result of a graphics error (incorrect voting numbers were displayed on screen) during the performance recap at the end of tonight’s East Coast broadcast of THE X FACTOR, the Top 13 acts will perform their “Save Me” songs for America’s re-vote, in a live, one-hour performance show airing tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). The results from tomorrow night’s vote will be revealed next week on THE X FACTOR airing Wednesday, Nov. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

The X Factor Season 3 Motown Week: Top 5 Performances

5. Lillie McCloud

Song: “All In Love Is Fair”
Artist: Stevie Wonder

I’m kinda over her, but there’s no denying girl has pipes. It was borderline cabaret, but I’m a sucker for this song, so ergo Lillie cracks my Top 5.

4. Restless Road

Song: “Easy”
Artist: The Commodores

As much as I love them, I have to agree with the judges that the lead (Colton) could’ve been stronger. In addition, Andrew’s mic volume seemed too low. I will however agree with Demi that their harmonies were much tighter this week. If these boys continue to improve the way they are, they will be the act to beat this season.

3. Khaya Cohen

Song: “My Girl”
Artist: The Temptations

While a great vocalist, she hadn’t left too much of an impression on me up until this point. Boy, did she wow tonight. Simon hit the nail on the head with his Amy Winehouse comparison. Of course Khaya doesn’t have all that baggage. As of yet, at least. She just needs to loosen up and show a bit more personality. If Demi can help her do this, Khaya could be a contender.

2. Alex & Sierra

Song: “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”
Artist: Marvin Gaye

This week wasn’t as good as their insanely awesome “Blurred Lines” cover last week, but still great nonetheless. Typically, Sierra is the stronger of the two but Alex killed it tonight. I found myself even more attracted to him. If I ever see them on the street, I’m totally tripping Sierra and kidnapping Alex. Boy is fine.

1. Jeff Gutt

Song: “Say You, Say Me”
Artist: Lionel Richie

Personally, I wish Kelly kept James Kenney over him, but Jeff does have a better voice. Not to sound shallow, but I wish he was just a tad more attractive. You’re thinking it too. Superficiality aside, Gutt killed it tonight. If Tate Stevens can win, Jeff could be the dark horse of the season.
