11. Stereo Hogzz Last week: #8
Simon called them the best band in the world right now. But they're NOT A BAND. Their ''lip sync for your life'' number last Thursday was a horror show.

10. Chris Rene Last week: #10
His voice wavers on anything but spoken-word, and he has trouble remembering lyrics when it's not his original song.

It's the time of the season when love runs dry. But the one in turquoise is soooo pretty!

8. Rachel Crow Last week: #11
She's very cute. But she shouts a lot. Nicole Scherzinger compared her to a young Michael Jackson. Ugh, Nicole.

7. Stacy Francis Last week: #9
She doesn't seem too happy about pegged by Simon as a church singer. And though her voice is strong, some of last week's high notes stung.

Good singer, fun dancer, but if he continues to rely on overwhelming backing tracks, smart voters could get annoyed.

5. Astro Last week: #1
I don't like him, but I can see why people would vote for him. The X Factor is calling these contestants ''acts,'' after all.

4. LeRoy Bell Last week: #2
His soulful wail is part Marc Cohn, part Michael Bolton, and 100 percent pure love. That Thursday night mic slip was embarrassing, but I think people like him and know he can sing.

3. Drew Last week: #4
Last week's bizarre ballerina bop aside, Drew's softly lilting vocals continue to stand out. Simon should let her just sing again, like he did at ''his house.'' I want my little Alanis McLachlan Jr. back.

2. Josh Krajcik Last week: #5
Let's hope he gets a better song choice than Christina Perri's ''Jar of Hearts'' this week. Come on, Coach Nicole. Feel his voice through your veins!

1. Melanie Amaro Last week: #3
She killed it on ''Desperado'' last week. If you're a fan of good singing and are somehow still watching The X Factor, it's safe to turn the volume up for Melanie, Josh, Drew, and LeRoy.
