Mariah Carey. Nicki Minaj. Keith Urban. Shakira. Usher. In recent years, the revolving door at the judges' table on reality singing competitions like American Idol and The Voice has seen a lot of action. And The X Factor has been no exception, cleaning house following the first season by handing pink slips to judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (who, in turn, replaced Cheryl Cole, who was ousted during the auditions) and hiring on Demi Lovato and Britney Spears in Season 2.

On Thursday's episode of The X Factor, one of the final four acts was sent home, while viewer votes sent the other three on to next week's final. Who made it through, and was the right act eliminated? Keep reading to find out.
Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza had very different ways of dealing with pre-wedding jitters.
In this exclusive clip from Mario & Courtney's Wedding Fiesta, tensions are running high for Mazza, who fears that the preparations won't be finished in time. Lopez, on the other hand, displays his signature laidback Cali style by going surfing with a friend only three hours before saying "I do."
And then there were four!
Two more contestants were eliminated from The X Factor Thursday night, with four making it through to next week's semifinals. Did Tate Nation give Tate Stevens the votes he needed to reclaim the top spot from Carly Rose Sonenclar? Did CeCe Frey survive another week?
