It was a tough road to the X Factor 2013 Top 4 Groups finalist circle, but no matter how united they seemed on their paths, the truth is that they can’t all make it onto Live Shows. Who had a roxxy, er, rocky road and whose journey has been a little bit more of a wild ride? Well, some groups fell off into the canyon, and we were left in suspense just waiting to see who would get to continue on the glamourous journey? These four groups will be on our mind for a while, while the rest didn’t get the best news:
Roxxy Montana: The ladies put on a pretty amazing show with their version of Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror,” booting Forever on Your Mind out of their seats. And rightfully so. Their soulful voices and brilliant chemistry came out through their harmonies, and Simon said he was excited to help shape their future. We are too.
Alex & Sierra: The too-cute-for-words couple make us a little jealous with their love, and their talent too, for that matter. If that wasn’t enough, their version of Grease’s “You’re the One That I Want” nabbed them a chair. And Simon must have been as taken with the cute pair as we are, since they were the first group he acknowledged as heading into the next round.
Restless Road:Andrew Scholz, Colton Pack, and Zach Beeken made Over 25s judge Kelly Rowland lose her ever-loving mind. And for good reason. Their rendition of Keith Urban’s “Someone Like You” earned them a chair, and they could’ve ordered takeout, they were there for so long. In fact, every time Simon subbed someone in, we had no doubt that Restless Road was safe.
Sweet Suspense: The ladies of Sweet Suspense have at least one big fan: Simon Cowell. The Groups mentor started applauding 20 seconds into their singing “Wishing on a Star,” and all the other judges agreed that their certainly headed for stardom.Did your favorite group make it into the Top 4?
