After a grueling season of intense performances and crazy talent, The X Factor finally comes to an end. Later tonight, the winner will be crowned, and either Carlito Olivero, Jeff Gutt, or Alex & Sierra will take home the ultimate prize. How will America ever be able to choose? Simon Cowell seems to have his bets placed on Alex & Sierra and, if we had to choose right this moment, we’d also pick them as tonight’s winner. They are humble, sweet, brilliant, and immensely talented. Perhaps we shouldn’t jinx their chances by saying anything, but we think they have the X Factor.
If you missed last night’s grand finale performance show, you can catch the detailed recap RIGHT HERE. On last night’s show, the singers performed their favorite song of the season — the one they felt most proud of — and also took the stage with a celebrity singer. Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls sang with Jeff Gutt, Leona Lewis sang with Alex and Sierra, and Prince Royce will sing with Carlito Olivero.

We’re sad to see this season come to an end, but we’re also glad one hopeful (or one team) will see his/her dreams come true and future stars align.
