At judges' house, they sang the country version of "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga. They were in the bottom two along with The Stereo Hogzz on November 10 but were spared elimination after LA Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell voted to save them. They were eliminated on the November 23 results show after being in the bottom 3 with Marcus Canty and LeRoy Bell and receiving the fewest public votes, and therefore came in 9th place.
