x-factor-sweet-suspense-Top-16.jpgThere were some surprising results on “The X Factor” Thursday night (Nov. 14,) leaving both the audience and the judges stunned.

The first act eliminated (the one in the bottom) was Simon’s girl group Sweet Suspense, which honestly is not a huge surprise. They were one of the weakest performances last night.

However, we then fully expected the sing-off to be between Ellona Santiago and Carlito Olivera, but in a shocking turn of events, it was between Rachel Potter and Khaya Cohen. Their sing-off was decent, but we gave the edge to Khaya — both last night and tonight.

And the judges reflected that. Naturally, Kelly Rowland chose to keep Rachel because she’s her mentor, but the other three chose to keep Khaya. It’s a shame, but Rachel didn’t pick a great song last night.

What did you think about the Top 12 results, “X Factor” fans?
