'The X Factor' Top 12 Becomes A Top 13; Who Got A Second Chance? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

If you were one of the people who thought Britney Spears had the strongest category this year on "The X Factor" with the Teens, you apparently weren't the only one. The series kicked off its Top 12 performance show -- after whittling down from 16 last week -- with a big surprise. They were inviting one contestant back to make a Top 13. And that contestant was 13-year-old Diamond White.

White had been a fan-favorite since her first audition, sailing through the competition until she found herself in Spears' Final Four. She was eliminated last week, only to come back and rejoin the series this week. And she came back with a bang, tackling Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing."

It was a powerful performance that had E! Online declaring that White had the poise and pipes of someone twice her age. And if the other judges were worried about Britney Spears' Teens before, with the addition of White they now have four reasons to sweat.

Find out who gets eliminated as "The X Factor" continues on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
