intensity stereo hogzz x fa 'The X Factor' Top 12 results: inTENsity or Stereo Hogzz   who went home?It’s results time for the first “X Factor” live performances with the American viewers voting. The final two spots came down to two groups (poor Paula) – inTENsity and the Stereo Hogzz.

Wednesday night (Nov. 2), inTENsity performed a mash-up of “Kids in America” and “Party Rock Anthem.” For me, they are a little too Kidz Bopz and “Mickey Mouse Club,” but my commenters seem to like them.

For the Stereo Hogzz, their offering was an outstanding “Rhythm Nation” performance, with great dancers, costumes and harmonies.

We find out that the lowest vote-getter still doesn’t go home outright. The two acts have to sing for their lives and then it goes to the judges to cast votes. If the judges are tied 2-2, then it goes to the lowest vote-getter. Huh. I did not see that coming, but at least it will keep from the (sometimes insane) American public from having complete control.

The judges’ votes go Simon sending home Stereo Hogzz, Paula sending home inTENsity, Nicole sending home inTENsity and finally L.A. sending inTENsity packing.

I think that’s the right choice. I also think I’m a fan of the letting judges have some say as to who goes home. What do you think, “X Factor” fans?
