Avril Lavigne will duet with Chris Rene, Alanis Morissette will be paired with Josh Krajcik and R. Kelly will sing with Melanie Amaro. so, what else, or should I say who else, could the show have planned for Thursday?
Josh Krajcik: He performed Alanis Morissette's aching ballad 'Uninvited,' backed by a simple piano and Morissette herself. The escalating tempo coupled with Krajcik's husky pipes competing against Morissette's vibrato muddled the song.

No matter who wins "the X Factor" Thursday night, the final performance show Wednesday made one thing perfectly clear: All three of the top three finalists – Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Melanie Amaro – are supertalented and will almost certainly go on to have successful music careers. Any of the three could walk away with the crown. it just depends on whether voters have connected more strongly with the bluesy rocker who's been slinging burritos and singing in small clubs, waiting for his big break (Krajcik), or the sweet-voiced, back-from-the-brink former addict with the winning swagger and the tender heart (Rene), or the church-going, formerly bullied young woman with the gigantic, supple voice and diva stage presence (Amaro). Really, it's anybody's call. On Wednesday night, viewers got to hear from each singer twice, unless you count the contestants' group number, on which they were joined by metallic dancers from Cirque du Soleil's "Michael Jackson, the Immortal World Tour." (Fox and the Jackson estate clearly can't get enough of each other. not sure what's going on there.) first, each contestant did a "surprise" duet with a major star. Krajcik was joined on Alanis Morissette's "Uninvited" by Morissette herself, turning in what Simon Cowell rightly summed up as an "8 out of 10" performance. (L.A. Reid, who revealed that Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" is his favorite album, called the Krajcik-Morissette duet "surreal," and it appeared he meant it as a compliment.) then Rene -– eight months sober as of Tuesday — bounced around onstage with Avril Lavigne on Lavigne's "Complicated," after which Paula Abdul complimented him on his "energy" and Cowell declared the duet record-worthy. (Reid added that such a record would be "a no. 1 hit.")Amaro, for her part, sang in a lower-than-usual register with R. Kelly, their two voices comfortably mingling on Kelly's mega-hit "I believe I Can fly." Reid thought Amaro was overpowered, but Cowell thought she looked like "a star." In between all that, there was a lot of yelling from people in the contestants' home towns. then the contestants came back with the solo performances with which they hoped to win viewers' votes for one last all-important time. Those performances turned out to be reprises of their original auditions. rather than showing us how far they'd come, they reminded us of what we loved about each of them in the first place. Krajcik showed his grit, earnestness and passion on Etta James' "At Last," on which he accompanied himself on guitar, perched (a bit worryingly) on a high platform fronted by a lighted set of stairs. "You're such a rock star," Reid told him. Rene showed his sweetness and conviction on his own song "Young Homie," this time all polished up with musical accompaniment, backup dancers and a full-on light-show. "you are magic," Abdul declared. Cowell called Rene a "man of your word … a brilliant performer, a true gentlemen and a really nice guy," and said he hoped America would support him. And Amaro? She sang Beyonce's "Listen" so powerfully she nearly blew the rest of the night away. "that wasn't a $5-million performance," Reid said. "that was a $50-million performance." Cowell, Amaro's mentor, put it even more bluntly. "To me, you should be the winner of 'the X Factor,'" he said.Personally, I've really grown to adore each of these three contestants over the weeks, and I'd be pleased to see any of them win. but the one I'd most hate to see lose? that would have to be Amaro. She's come back from so much – not least of which was the disappointment of being prematurely sent home by Cowell earlier this season, before he thought better of it and brought her back. We've watched Amaro's dream slip away before. I'd really rather not see it happen again. Who would you like to see win "the X Factor" Thursday night?

Canadian singer Alanis Morissette has revealed in a new blog post she has had troubles with her body image, suggesting she once struggled with an eating disorder.
Writing for the website iVillage.com, Morissette describes having had trouble with food and weight, in a post entitled “My Relationship with Food and fat.”
“Not much upsets me quite like someone making a declarative and derogatory comment about someone’s weight when they themselves have never struggled with an eating disorder,” the Ottawa-born native begins.
She goes on to talk about the pressure that discourages fat and obesity, and the pressure she herself has felt to remain thin.
“I remember being at my most thin one day, feeling like I could barely drag my lethargic body around, only to be met with the most compliments I had ever received,” she says.
The singer-songwriter adds cryptically: “…my fraught relationship with food and fat has always been a cloaked invitation into a more profound kindness to myself (one I have so often ignored). being kind toward my fragility in the face of a monolithic message of perfectionism and intolerance has not been an easy path.”
The post isn’t clear about whether Morissette has actually ever been treated for an eating disorder or when in her life she experienced these issues.
Morissette is perhaps best known for the 1995 blockbuster pop-alternative album “Jagged Little Pill,” which remains the highest-selling debut album worldwide.
She has gone to sell more than 60 million albums worldwide and has won seven Grammy Awards and 12 Juno Awards.
Her last record, 2008′s “Flavors of Entanglement,” hit No. 3 on the Canadian album chart.
The singer, who was once engaged to actor Ryan Reynolds, is married to musician Mario “Souleye” Treadway. they have a baby son named Ever Imre.
This new mommy has lived and learned!
Alanis Morissette became a mother for the first time on Christmas Day 2010 when she welcomed son Ever Imre, 10-months, with husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway — and she’s not afraid to admit she was a little clueless at first!

“I remain baffled at how little I was prepared for what was to come,” Morissette, 37, writes in Monday’s iVillage.com blog post.

“I had used, as usual, the I’ll-rise-to-that-occasion-when-I-get-there approach to the post-child-bearing journey,” the “Ironic” singer writes. “So all my DVD-watching and focus went toward the birth experience itself, and how to prepare myself for that (as though I really could prepare for a Human. Being. Coming. out. Of. My. Body),” she wrote.

In her column, Morissette describes the unexpected changes she felt after giving birth, admitting she felt like “a blank slate”, with “no handbook” to guide her. underneath all the fluctuating hormones, lack of sleep, and her gigantic, new responsibility of her baby son, the singer wrote of the astonishing change the “mom” title cast on her life.
“Life literally and figuratively moved through me that morning of Dec. 25,” she say’s of her son’s birth. “Yet another example of life’s unsentimental and ruthless way of shaking me awake to the direct experience of being human.” but the postpartum process wasn’t just about her baby. “I had no idea the person I’d always dreamed of becoming was being born at the exact same time.”
