Two more contestants said goodbye to The X Factor on Thanksgiving - Lillie McCloud and Josh Levi.

First viewers were told that the 54-year-old powerhouse was eliminated. The night prior, McCold took the stage to sing Summertime from the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess.

Her performance, which she dedicated to her fiancé, Terrance, received a standing ovation from judges Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio and mentor Kelly Rowland. Simon Cowell, however, said the performance wasn't "raw enough."

Although she was eliminated, McCloud didn't shed tears in her exit interview.

"I expected a different outcome but America knows what they want," she said. "I'm still happy and surprisingly I don't know why I'm not more devastated. It was an unbelievable ride and I got so far so I'm still happy... I would still do it again."

Then, the two youngest competitors were in the bottom two - Josh Levi and Rion Paige. On Wednesday's episode, Levi, 15, performed Bruno Mars Treasure while Paige, 13, sang LeAnn Rimes' Swingin'.

The two battled to stay in the competition with another performance on Thursday's episode. Paige sang Pink's 2010 hit Perfect and Levi took the stage to sing Bruno Mars' When I Was Your Man

Lovato voted to keep Paige as Rubio and Rowland voted for Levi. Unable to choose a name, Cowell sent the decision to deadlock, which means the act with the lowest votes would be sent home. That act was Levi.

"I was definitely surprised that I had the least amount of votes out of everyone," Levi said in his exit interview. "I'm disappointed obviously but I'm so thankful to make it this far. I'm not leaving with any regrets... I gave everything."
