‘The X Factor’ Screws Up Live Vote, Contestants to Sing Again

An on-screen gaffe is forcing producers to scrap the voting results from Wednesday night’s “X Factor” and the contestants will sing again during Thursday night’s live episode.

As explained by Fox, “As a result of a graphics error (incorrect voting numbers were displayed on screen) during the performance recap at the end of [Wednesday’s] East Coast broadcast of ‘The X Factor,’ the Top 13 acts will perform their ‘Save Me’ songs for America’s re-vote, in a live, one-hour performance show airing … Thursday, Nov. 7.”

The results from Thursday’s episode will be revealed next week.

Simon Cowell tweeted about the goof, but seemed to take it all in good spirits.
