The worst aspect of these singing competition shows? Saying goodbye to some talented artists.

No matter what happens on The X Factor, we have to see some of our faves voted off to make way for the eventual winner. And while acts like Diamond White, Emblem3, and Carly Rose Sonenclare have amassed followings that make it unlikely that they’re going anywhere until later in the competition, Paige Thomas wasn’t quite so lucky.

Before the eliminations, Paige chatted with Hollywire’s Chelsea Briggs about going against mentor Demi Lovato's advice and being true to herself, even though it could cost her the competition.

We're sorry to see Paige go, especially after a performance that had all the judges praising her! At least Paige got a chance to show what kind of artist she can be, and hopefully she stood out enough that people will remember her as she continues with her music career from here on out.
