Oh come on, Drew fans... I'm sad too...
But surely it's time to wipe away the runny mascara and settle in for Wednesday (December 7) night's episode of "The X Factor," featuring two performances apiece from the "X Factor" Top 5. Yes, that means two performances from Chris Rene. Sorry about that. but it also means a double-serving of Burrito Josh.
Buckle in for the entire live-blog journey...
Are we ready for another "X Factor" double-elimination?
I'm not sure if I am. Yes, I know exactly which two performers I'd eliminate this week -- Chris and Marcus, I'm looking mournfully at you -- but I don't expect that they're the two singers America is likely to eliminate, resulting in almost inevitable disappointment.
Using this picture of Marcus is a spoiler risk. I understand that. His chances of departing are fairly high. But it's such a colorful and lively picture that I had to use it.
