Earlier today, I hedged my bets and gave you three reasons why each of tonight's X Factor finalists -- Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene -- might take home the trophy tomorrow. But those could all end up out the window, as each performer is about to take the stage three times. A show-stopping performance also jumpstart votes in anyone's favor.

Especially when three of those performances, we just learned, will be duets with three very famous, very controversial performers:

Melanie Amaro & R. Kelly - "I Believe I Can Fly"
Chris Rene & Avril Lavigne - "Complicated"
Josh Krajcik & Alanis Morissette - "Uninvited"

Jilliane Johnson will be bringing you her full take on tonight's big, final X Factor performances  after the episode, but until then, here's your spot to sound off on all of tonight's happenings, on stage and at the judges' table. We're a family. Let's dish about the TV show like a family.

Just a couple ideas to get you sharing in the comments:

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


  • Who gave the best performance?
  • Who gave the worst?
  • Who's going to win?
  • Who should win?
  • Which judge would you most like to see win? (PAULA!)
  • How many times did Nicole cry?
  • How many of those times seemed genuine?
  • Do you love or loathe or something-in-between Steve Jones? (I love him. Despite his faults. I mean, because of them.)
  • Who would make the best record?
  • Who would make the best Pepsi Super Bowl commercial?
  • WHO'S EXCITED TO SEE SANTA BIEBER TOMORROW?

Ready, set, X Factor!
