The "X Factor" Season 3 finale is right around the corner — which means soon Alex & Sierra, Jeff Gutt, or Carlito Olivero will win a record contract and go on to follow in the footsteps of, um, Melanie Amaro and Tate Stevens.
All three contestants are very talented, but there are still a few others that I'm shocked didn't make it at least a bit closer to this year's finale. So, without further ado, here is my list of the most-robbed contestants of this "X Factor" season.
12. Yellow House Canyon - These country gals brought such vivacious energy to their performances, and they were so darn likable. But during the Four-Chair Challenge, Simon Cowell didn't even give YHC a chance, or a seat. He shipped them straight home. And yet, he gave Forever in Your Mind a shot? Whatever.
11. Timmy Thames - I witnessed this 13-year-old's L.A. audition in person, and I can tell you, he was a little Michael Jackson reincarnate, something very special. I predicted right then and there that he was going to go far. Later seeing him lose his seat at the last minute during the Four-Chair Challenge damn near broke my heart.
10. Second Hand High - OK, I'm not really serious about this one. But "Ask Me to Dance" was a pretty frickin' catchy song. Even Simon said he thought it could be a hit! Maybe he'll invite them back to the finale and that song can get stuck in my head for another three months.
