"The X Factor" quickly went from a Top 12 to its Top 10 by eliminating two acts. First, the girl group Sweet Suspense was eliminated. There was nothing the judges could do but look on in surprise. For the second elimination, the judges were able to save one of the bottom two acts. Their choice was between Rachel Potter and Khaya Cohen.
While all of the judges agreed that these were two of the strongest acts in the competition, the votes didn't go Rachel Potter's way. The disappointment of the eliminations were balanced by a performance from last season's third-place finishers, Fifth Harmony. Selena Gomez also took to the stage with her single, "Slow Down."
The Top 10 take to the stage as "The X Factor" continues Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
