The X Factor returned for the third round of the four chair challenge and three singers were eliminated in the Top 40 cut, but brought back by Simon Cowell to be a country “man band,” Restless Road.
Contestant: Restless Road (This is one of the groups that Simon put together.)
Song: ”Somebody Like You” by Keith Urban
The Critiques: (I am dubbing this my second favorite act.) Kelly said that they’re “an incredible country trio,” and dubbed putting them together “a completely brilliant idea” while Paulina called them amazing.
The Decision: Simon said that one of his most nerve-wrecking experiences on the show so far was waiting for these three guys to decide whether or not they were alright with being a group, because he was so certain that it was going to work out – he just needed their blessing. Unsurprisingly, Simon decided to give these three gents a seat, which fills up his Four Chairs – for now. The rest of his group will be performing tomorrow night!
