On "The X Factor" recently, the Top 8 acts performed on the show theme of Big Band Week.
The Top 8 finalists are: Rion Paige, Ellona Santiago, Josh Levi, Carlito Olivero, Jeff Gutt, Lillie McCloud, Alex & Sierra and Restless Road.
I spoke with Lillie McCloud backstage after her performance of "Summertime" on the show. Click on the video link to see what she had to say about song choices, the judges comments and more.
McCloud ended up getting eliminated the following day after receiving the lowest amount of votes. Josh Levi followed her after a sing off with Rion Page. The judges votes were tied, which ended up in deadlock with the audience votes being the final decision.
The X Factor continues on Wednesday where the Top 4 constestants will perform for the semi finals.
Check back for more interviews with the top finalists.
