Rion Paige took the stage on THE X FACTOR USA for her Top 6 live performance and Diva Week. Rion Paige sang See You Again by Carrie Underwood for her 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: Kelly says ever time Rion is so genuine when singing; she believes Rion was a diva with how she commanded the stage. Paulina says she loves her and her vocals; she has such a unique and powerful voice. Simon says it was a good song but not the best; he likes how she went back to her country roots and feels like that the second song should be a better choice for her. Demi says that she took her breath away when seeing her get on stage; she believes nobody has the fire in their eyes that she does when she performs. – If you want to see Rion Paige make it another week, you have to vote for her.

I did not know you were so flirty.“ Paulina: “Blondy I love you so much, I am so excited for this moment.” Simon: “Did you choose this song, because thank God you did it was the perfect song – you handled the choreography great – you are as cute as a cupcake. What you showed tonight is the sort of artist you should be.” Demi: “I have to say it was your best performance, you killed it. Simon you have to watch out. I love you Rion, and I am thankfuil for you.”
