‘X Factor’ Finale: Jeff Gutt Deserves To Beat Alex & Sierra

19 December 2013 8:25 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Yes, I know that Alex and Sierra are fan-favorites, but come on — who could really create a hit record? Think about the radio for a moment, and it’s Jeff who can be a hit maker!

If there was any contestant who delivered big-time with their X Factor finale performances Dec. 18, it was Jeff Gutt. The Detroit-born 37-year-old with the sexy, raspy voice was a rock star with every note.

Jeff Gutt Should Win Over Alex & Sierra On ‘The X Factor

While Alex & Sierra are cute and delivered a pretty rendition of “Say Something,” they totally wimped out on both their duet of “Bleeding Love” with Leona Lewis and their delicate rendition of “Give Me Love”.

Hey, I know it’s heartwarming to see them look adoringly into each other’s eyes, but honestly, when was the last time that a sugary, folksy duo ever had a hit record? I’m sorry, »

'X Factor' Recap: Jeff Gutt Goes for Broke

19 December 2013 7:05 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

We're in the home stretch: The X Factor crowns a winner tonight. "I think this is going to be one of the closest finals we've ever had, and we've seen a few upsets over the weeks," Simon Cowell said, as if warning viewers that something was amiss.

Rolling Stone's Complete Coverage of 'The X Factor

And indeed it was: After weeks of stellar performances, presumed frontrunners Alex and Sierra faltered ever so slightly at a time when it's crucial for them to be spot-on. Jeff Gutt had the spotlight on him all night. »

The X Factor Recap: Bring Me the Head of Paulina Rubio! [Insert Crowd Roaring Here]

9 October 2013 7:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Paulina Rubio (Code name: “Still No Idea Who That Is”) finally got her Big Moment on The X Factor tonight. The occupant of the Britney Spears Chair of English Manglage and Barely Formed Thoughts has shone especially dim during her Season 3 tenure — particularly sitting alongside the high-wattage wit and wisdom of Kelly Rowland and the scrappy sparkle of Demi Lovato.

Unfortunately for Pow-leena (as host Mario Lopez prefers to overemphasize it), the Big Moment probably didn’t resemble what she and her management team had envisioned when she hopped aboard Fox’s second-most-popular reality singing competition (out of two).

The X Factor Recap: Bad Chair Day [Updated]

26 September 2013 6:06 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Novelty acts, not-as-funny-as-you-think fame-seekers and the mentally/emotionally unstable, your time is up!

The X Factor‘s Season 3 auditions have come to their inevitable end, making way for something called “The Four-Chair Challenge.” (Cue a Christina Aguilera side-eye as she realizes this phrase sounds like what happens when all four coaches press their buttons during The Voice audition rounds. We’re with you on this one, Xtina, even if the X Factor’s new substitute for “Boot Camp” and “Judges’ Houses” has nothing to do with rotating seats or “blinds.”)

The X Factor Recap: Whole World's Upside Down

25 September 2013 7:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Stop giving me White Castle and telling me it’s filet mignon! That, in a Styrofoam container, is my desperate message to Simon Cowell and his producing cronies at The X Factor.

Tonight’s installment — the fifth one focusing on the Season 3 audition rounds — was littered with mediocre vocalists who received lavish praise and occasional standing ovations from a judging panel that really should (and probably does) know better.

Don’t get me wrong: Demi Lovato brings a sassy charm to her role as The Voice of The Youth (Tm pending). But I just cahhhhhhn’t when she stares down »

The X Factor Recap: The Secret Strife of These American Teenagers [Updated]

18 September 2013 7:34 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I laughed. I cried. I seriously contemplated setting my television on fire.

Yep, it’s just another Wednesday night watching The X Factor, the show where every audience reaction shot looks like it’s coming from a wannabe actor feigning enjoyment rather than an actual human who’s digging the music. And yes, now that you ask, I was trying to bury that bit about being moved to tears under a blanket of bitchery.

What can I say? The story about Carlos Guevara — the kid with Tourette’s whose genuine talent trumped his backstory — gave me a case of the weepies. »

‘The X Factor’ Premiere: Kelly Rowland Swoons Over Al Calderon

13 September 2013 6:02 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

The X Factor’ returned for a super-sized premiere event, and without getting to ahead of myself, I think we might have already met this year’s winner.

The X Factor‘s two-night season premiere continued Sept. 12, and although the second night didn’t have quite as many sexy grandmas as the first, it was still bursting with talent. In fact, it featured what Simon Cowell called the best auditions he’s ever seen on the show — including one young gentleman from Long Island who might just be the next Justin Bieber. Only taller and less Canadian.

Denver Auditions: A Mixed Bag Of Emotions

The first “yes” went to Riley Brown, 15, who performed ‘her’ version of Zedd‘s “Clarity.” She was pretty shaky at first, but then she got better, even to the point where Demi Lovato started to tear up. “I absolutely love you,” Simon told a super-excited Riley, »

X Factor Winner Tate Stevens: I'm Happy to Be a Late Bloomer

29 April 2013 12:42 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

When Tate Stevens' wife told him that she had signed him up to audition for The X Factor in Kansas City last year without his knowledge, he was less than enthusiastic about the idea, even telling her flat-out that he wasn't going to go.

"We'd watched the first season," Stevens tells "We watched American Idol, The Voice. We watched all those shows. And you see, 15, 20,000 people standing outside in lines. I'm like, 'There's no way I'm going to stand in those lines. No. Not gonna happen.'"

But his wife wouldn't take no for an answer.

Tate Stevens is no Melanie Amaro. Sure, the 38-year-old country crooner may have followed in Amaro's X Factor USA-winning footsteps, but when it came down to writing and recording his debut album, Stevens wasted no time. "We had to jump on the momentum of the show," the Belton, Mo., native tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I didn't want people forgetting -- you know, 'that's the fat ugly guy who won that show,'" he adds with a chuckle.
