The X Factor ‘Big Band’ Night Recap – November 27, 2013 (@TheXFactorUSA #XFactor)


It was all about live music on this week’s episode of The X Factor!

Multi-platinum recording artist Michael Buble opened the show with “You Make Me Feel So Young.” The Top 8–Jeff Gutt, Josh Levi, Alex & Sierra, Rion Paige, Carlito Olivero, Restless Road, Ellona Santiago, and Lillie McCloud–sang with a 25-piece orchestra band for America’s votes. Following the solo performances, the Top 8 participated in a final face-off where they sang “Cry Me A River” for the judges.

On tomorrow’s results show, two acts will be eliminated from the competition. TXF will be giving fans a special Thanksgiving episode in honor of the national holiday. Performances throughout the night will include Michael Buble and TXF judge Demi Lovato
