OK, so we're gonna ignore that Tron-meets-the Fox football robot Michael Jackson number, all the clips and the fact that somebody thought it was a good idea to have R. Kelly perform with a 19-year-old girl, and just get to the real stuff: The X Factor's finale performances.

Josh: OK. His cover of Etta James' "At Last" was great and measured and kind of boring. Felt like a great audition. Not feeling it.

Chris: Love his original "Young Homie." Love his message. Love that he'll probably do well, coming in second.

Melanie: Must. Win. If you did not get chills from her rendition of Beyonce's "Listen," it's possible someone has secretly embalmed you.
