In case you missed the first of the live performances on The X Factor last night and spent your Halloween trick or treating, BuddyTV has you covered. Last night's episode was filled with awkward banter between judges, great displays of talent and a lack thereof from host Khloe Kardashian-Odom.

Before the Top 16 become the Top 12 tonight in a 2-hour long episode, (someone explain to me why it takes so long to eliminate 4 people) we thought we'd make things a little easy for you. Here are the top five most memorable performances of last night's live show.

Showdown: Vote for your favorite Top 16 X Factor act


Don't call them a boy band, they're anything but! Drew, Wesley and Keaton stole the show last night, closing the first of the live episodes. Their energy was high, the song choice was right and the girls were definitely on board, including a swooning Demi.

"One Day" by Matisyahu

Jennel Garcia

She may look like a clone of Demi Lovato with her new brunette locks and bangs to match, but Jennel is evolving into a full package. When we first saw her, she was all voice and sex appeal. Take a look at her now. Jennel is reminiscent to the rockstar side of the original American Idol, Kelly Clarkson. 

"Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue

Paige Thomas

What a way to open the show. Paige Thomas has struggled through the competition and this performance only strengthens that argument. Yeah, the judges love it, but Paige's vocals could be so much better. With that said, this futuristic set that surrounds her is something out of a sci-fi film. Grace Jones, anyone?
"What Is Love?" by Haddaway

CeCe Frey

Mentor Demi Lovato even said that CeCe's personality can come across as unlikable, but does that take away from her talent? Have a look for yourself. Her vocals could be a whole lot better, but we know at least one popstar who's gotten away with it, right? CeCe knows how to work the crowd and flip that newly bleached blonde hair.
"Because the Night" by Patti Smith

Lyric 145

Fused together after bootcamp, Lyric Da Queen and One4Five have really gelled as a group. They bring a fresh sense of hip-hop to the competition and they're good. This performance, though, is awkward. They deliver and get the crowd hype, but Lyric 145 simply does not look like the rap trio we've previously seen. Plus, they go Gangnam Style!

"Boom Shake the Room" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince and "Gangnam Style" by Psy
