After an exciting start to the X Factor USA’s 3rd season, it is now boiling down to the final showdown. That’s correct, we are now down to the final 3 of the competition. A list that includes Jeff Gutt, Alex and Sierra and none other than the 24-year-old Latin Heartthrob… Carlito Olivero! After two consecutive weeks on the bottom 2, Carlito always seemed to pull one last trick out of his hat to get him right back into the competition.

And despite some criticism about his vocal abilities, from none other than Simon Cowell. Carlito persevered; in such a way that it even surprised the highly critical Music Executive. Stating that this was Carlito’s best week!

In competitive shows such as the X Factor, song selection plays a crucial role in how well an artist performs. Having Paulina Rubio as his mentor is definitely a plus. However, could the selection of songs earlier in the season be the reason for Carlito’s two stints in the bottom 2? It’s obvious when he performed Classic Latin Hits such as Santana’s “Maria, Maria” and Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente.” That he had even Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato moving to the sensuous Latino Grooves.

With humble beginnings, a win for Carlito Olivero would mean the world for him and his family. Who couldn’t be more proud of their son, brother and friend. However, to win the X Factor, Carlito Olivero needs to go into next week’s finals with an appetite to win as never before. Putting on a performance that will be remembered for years to come. It’s up to you America to decide on whom you want as this season’s winner.

Tune into the Fox network on December 18, 2013 at 8pm ET/P to see the final three battle it out to become the X Factor.
