The top 5 contestants take the stage tonight, in the X Factor December 7, 2011 live performance show which airs from 8pm to 9:30 pm ET. The finale is gets nearer. Which singer are you excited to see perform tonight?

The contestants will be singing two songs tonight, where one was chosen by the viewers. The viewers get a say this time on which songs the contestants will perform. Can they do it better than the mentors? Fans were allowed to vote last Thursday and Friday to choose the songs they want the five finalists to sing for one of their two songs. Did you cast your vote?

The options for each contestant are:

Chris Rene – “My Love Is Your Love” by Whitney Houston, “Angel of the Morning” by Shaggy or “Fly” by Sugar Ray

Marcus Canty – “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey, “Saving All My Love For You” by Whitney Houston or “I’ll Make Love to You” by Boyz II Men

Melanie Amaro – “Hero” by Mariah Carey, “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” by Whitney Houston or “The Voice Within” by Christina Aguilera

Rachel Crow – “Forget You” by CeeLo Green, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross or “Valerie” by Amy Winehouse

Josh Krajcik – “Chasing Pavements” by Adele, “Everytime You Go Away” by Hall & Oates or “Come Together” by The Beatles

Which of these songs will be performed by the finalists? Do you think the song choices are appropriate for each of them? What other songs do you think will be good for them? Who will stand out in tonight’s competition? What are the second songs which is most probably selected by the mentors?
