Jeff Gutt took the stage on THE X FACTOR USA for his Top 6 live performance and Diva Week. Jeff Gutt sang Without You by Mariah Carey for his first song. On tonight’s show the top 6 performed live in front of coaches Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio for America’s vote and to make it to the coveted “Top 5.” Did you watch tonight’s performance show? We did and we recapped it here for you.
On tonight’s show the theme for the evening is Diva Week. The Top 6 Finalists will perform two songs for the judges and America’s votes – one from their favorite diva artist, and the other, a stripped-down version of a song of their choice. Voting lines will open immediately after the show. This week is a single elimination week, and the finalist have to bring their all to stick around another week.
Judges’ comments: Demi says that Jeff has come a long way and her niece is obsessed with him; she believes he has the X Factor. Paulina says that she loves him and that he rocked that song; he reminds her of Axel Rose. Simon says that Jeff is a boring person; but when he comes on stage he completely transforms and loved the lighting rigged. But what he loves is that Jeff actually wants to win this really badly and works hard; though he believes it was the best performance of the night. Kelly says that it was an incredible performance and that he did it justice – If you want to see Jeff Gutt make it another week, you have to vote for him.
On last week’s show Jeff Gutt performed “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone. – Demi said: “WOW, I never thought I would hear you say this song but you killed it. You did amazing.” Paulina said: “What a great job, I loved it. I think you killed it!” Simon said: “It was absolutely fantastic, from the minute you grabbed the microphone you owned it. I love your Dad. I think you are a decent guy, you deserve a break. This is by far your best performance.” Kelly said: “You nailed it. Incredible job. I will be downloading.” Jeff got a standing ovation from the judges!
