On the first results show for “The X Factor” one group will be eliminated but not before recaps, performances, and host Steve Jones saves 10 of the contestants.
While fan votes will save 10 of the artists, the final decision as to who will go home will be up to the judges when the two artists in the bottom two must perform again.
The show begins with an introduction of the judges and a group performance from all 12 finalists; followed by a recap from performance night.
Along with the $5 million recording contract, the winner will be featured in their own Pepsi commercial. The current artist featured in a Pepsi ad – Outta Sight – performed “Tonight’s the Night” on the “X Factor” stage.
And finally the results. The finalists are introduced along with their mentors.
The first finalist saved on the premiere season of “The X Factor” is…Marcus Canty!

Host Steve Jones continually stated that the results were given in no particular order.
The ten member group InTENsity and the Stereo Hogzz were the two finalists who received the lowest number of votes. The two groups will perform a new song for the final showdown and the judges will determine which one will be eliminated from the competition on the first week.
First up in the final showdown was the Stereo Hogzz performing “Emotion”.
InTENsity took the stage next with thesong “My Life Would Suck Without You”.
Simon thought the Stereo Hogzz should go home.
Paula – who mentored both groups – thought InTENsity should go home.
Nicole thought that InTENsity should go home.
And LA thought InTENsity should go home.
With a vote of three to one the largest group of the competition InTENsity was eliminated. InTENsity was a group created by the judges during boot camp from 10 solo artists.
Next week the eleven remaining finalists will once again compete for fan votes and a chance to move on in the competition.
