"The X Factor" USA 2013 resumes Dec. 18 on FOX with the much-anticipated performance finale. A Dec. 18 afternoon update to the iTunes store and a series of tweets from the hopefuls revealed both the songs that each act will sing during their final stints on the live stage, and the names of their respective super star duet partners.
Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton, who together make up the aptly named duo Alex & Sierra, will sing "Bleeding Love" alongside original artist Leona Lewis. Their set list also features a reprise of their chart-topping version of "Say Something," the seasonal favorite "All I Want for Christmas is You," and Ed Sheeran's "Give Me Love."
Single dad Jeff Gutt, who represents the last of Kelly Rowland's over 25s, will team up with Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik to deliver the 1990s classic "Iris." Gutt will also reprise his audition round song, "Creep" by Radiohead, and perform the Christmas classic "O Holy Night" and Aerosmith's "Dream On."
The last finalist, Carlito Olivero of Paulina Rubio's boys group, will sing a duet with Prince Royce. Other songs listed for Olivero include a reprise of "Maria, Maria," the seasonally appropriate "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," and "Impossible."
