On Thursday night before "The X Factor's" big finale, I had the honor of guesting on the live preshow alongside backstage correspondent Jim Cantiello, hosts Adrienne Bailon (of 3LW/Cheetah Girls fame) and Jesse Giddings, Adrienne's best friend and "Empire Girls" co-star Julissa Bermudez, and "X Factor" digital content producer Jim Fraenkel. What ensued was a very lively and frank "X Factor" debate. Enjoy our chat below, in its unedited entirety, but do kindly ignore all that stuff Jim and I say about underdogs Fifth Harmony having a chance of winning Season 2. Obviously we were wrong about that...but we had plenty of other things to say that you'll hopefully agree with, or at least find entertaining:
- Tate Stevens wins "The X Factor" Season 2
- Season 2's most-robbed "X Factor" contestants
- More on "The X Factor"
