Paige Thomas and Vino Alan miss the cut on The X Factor Paige Thomas and Vino Alan miss the cut on The X Factor

Paige Thomas and Vino Alan missed the cut for the top six and were ultimately sent home on Thursday's (29Nov12) results show on The X Factor. Receiving the least amount of votes was 22-year-old Thomas, who had been near the bottom of the pack over the past few weeks, but the audience was still surprised when she was the first of two to be eliminated. The single mom struggled to find her voice over the course of the competition, but Thomas insisted she was leaving on a high note, after she was able to incorporate more of her creative input for Wednesday's (28Nov12) performance of a more laid-back version of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up. Also receiving a low amount of votes and singing for their survival were 13-year-old Diamond White and L.A. Reid's hopeful Vino Alan. After the nearly equal sing-off, Alan received three out of four votes from the judges and was the second act to go home. The elimination comes as a shock, as he has been ranked in third place on the voting leaderboard for the past three weeks. However, a last minute switch of song choice on Wednesday may have hurt his chances at staying in the competition as the panel seemingly panned his performance. Meanwhile, the remaining five acts discovered their rankings based on America's votes. Only one-tenth of one percent of the vote separated the top two acts, with Tate Stevens landing just short of Carly Rose Sonenclar's first place for the second week in a row. Grammy winner Alicia Keys also took the stage to perform the title track off her new album Girl on Fire, and first season's runner-up Josh Krajcik also performed the single from his debut album, One Thing She'll Never Know. The top six will face off again next week (05Nov12), as they will perform one song chosen by viewers in an online poll.
