On Wednesday, the six remaining "X Factor" contestants sang two songs each: one unplugged performance with "no gimmicks, no silly costumes," and one "diva" performance with, of course, gimmicks and costumes galore. This allowed the contestants to showcase very different aspects of their talents, but not all of them were equally versatile…and a couple of them probably should've had the plug pulled on them entirely.
Here's how everyone did Wednesday:

Hang on tight, because this week's episode, "The Sacred Taking," of "American Horror Story: Coven" has left our minds reeling with insane questions. Definitely the season's most complex and twisted episode yet. Bear with us as we try to figure out who is trying to kill off the witches and if we're likely to see a new Supreme just yet.
With severe mommy issues plaguing the neighbors, a ruthless Hank trying to save his own neck, and Fiona nearly killing herself, we need to regroup, turn on all the lights, and heat up some warm milk before delving into what exactly went down at the coven this week. Here are some of the questions that we are dying to get answered.
Who will be the next Supreme?

On Wednesday's "X Factor," judge Paulina Rubio told rocker contestant Jeff Gutt that she wanted to see him "show more blood" onstage. Yes, Paulina may suffer from a bit of a language barrier sometimes, but it was obvious she meant that metaphorically (as in the "blood, sweat, and tears" sense). Still, Simon Cowell took this as his opportunity to make a little joke. Except…it wasn't even a little funny, especially to one of the other judges at the table.
"So, you want him to cut himself ?" Simon quipped. And then Simon said it again. And again . "Basically, she wants you to stab yourself...Jeff, please do not cut yourself next week," he remarked during his critique.
Of course, joking about cutting is probably never appropriate. But when you're sitting next to someone with a well-known history of self-harm — i.e., Demi Lovato — it's especially facepalm-worthy.
Kirstie Alley Talks 'Kirstie' Dream Cast, Sex With John Travolta, and Finding Amazing Health Cures on Twitterkimp at Yahoo TV17 hrs ago
She's been no stranger to reality TV, but Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning "Cheers" star Kirstie Alley has been MIA from sitcom land since "Veronica's Closet" ended in 2000. She returns to her old stomping grounds this week with "Kirstie," the TV Land comedy that reunites her with "Cheers" co-star Rhea Perlman and adds fellow Emmy winner Michael Richards to the mix.
Oh, and a baby. A grown-up baby — "Shrek the Musical" star Eric Petersen as Arlo, whom Alley's Broadway leading lady Maddie Banks gave up for adoption at birth so that she could pursue her dream of theater stardom. She; her assistant, Thelma (Perlman); and her driver, Frank (Richards), have been a team for 25 years, and all their worlds are rocked when her long-lost son shows up at the door of her luxury apartment. That he is, as Alley tells Yahoo TV, "nerdy" and "dopey" doesn't help him to immediately bond with his glamorous diva mama. Comedy ensues.

Apparently, it is hard for Grayson/Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) to reach his full potential as a captain of industry when he doesn't keep daylight office hours and knows he is running out of time as the Order of the Dragon, on top of his less nefarious business associates in Victorian England, is growing increasingly suspicious of his tendency to burn the midnight oil.
On this Friday's episode, "Of Monsters and Men," it is show-up-or-shut-up time. In an attempt to flush out the beast, Browning is throwing a midday meeting in his solarium, and our vengeful vamp knows he needs to make an appearance or "all our efforts will have been in vain. We can't win if we don't go all in." He needs to become a daywalker, stat.

Cancel your Valentine's Day plans and hunker down for an epic binge-watch: Netflix announced today they're launching Season 2 of their ultra-buzzy political thriller "House of Cards" on February 14, with all 13 episodes available to stream instantly. Romantic, right?
They also released a moody 30-second teaser of conniving politician's wife Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) smoking a cigarette by the windowsill — a spot where she and husband Frank (Kevin Spacey) cooked up many a self-serving scheme in Season 1. (Please, God, let them never switch to e-cigarettes.)
To tide you over for the next two months, let's take a quick look at what we know about Season 2 of "Cards" so far.
Last we saw Congressman Frank Underwood, his nefarious maneuvering had paid off, and he'd been offered the position of Vice President. (Never mind that he had to suffocate poor, drunken stooge Pete Russo to get it.) But it's not all smooth sailing for Frank: He still owes shadowy billionaire Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) big time for recommending him to the prez… and in Season 2, Tusk is looking to collect.

Casting superheroes is maybe the trickiest task in Hollywood. But The CW thinks it has found the right man behind the mask — they've tapped Grant Gustin to play the Flash in an arc on "Arrow" this season, with an eye toward a spinoff.
The 23-year-old actor is set for the role of Barry Allen, a forensic investigator who comes to Starling City to investigate robberies connected to his tragic past. A comic book nerd, Barry is fascinated by "The Hood" — without realizing that the man he's working with, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), is the very vigilante in question! And while Barry starts off as a regular guy, "Arrow" co-creator Andrew Kreisberg teased, "His life will get a bit faster."
If fan reception is warm toward Gustin's portrayal, the character will be spun off into his own series.
So, just who is the potential new Flash? Here are five things to know about Grant Gustin:
1. He warbled on "Glee."

Last night on "The Voice," Team Xtina's former frontrunner Matthew Schuler went home in sixth place. And even though my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield and I predicted this would happen, we're still a little disgruntled about it.
Would the outcome have been different if there were no such thing as an "Instant Save"...or if the Instant Save could be employed by West Coast viewers, too? Since only a one percent difference in the number of #VoiceSave tweets separated Matthew Schuler from his ultimately saved bottom-two opponent, James Wolpert, we'll never know for sure.
Watch me and Matt dish about Tuesday's results and performances, and be sure to share your thoughts on the message board as well!

You know what they say: The couple that Grimms together, stays together.
With all of Nick's supernatural skeletons out of the closet, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) is officially part of the Portland Scooby gang. Now Nick (David Giuntoli) can share case details, browse his ancestor's creepy and seemingly professionally illustrated journals, and brainstorm bad guy abatement with his beloved.
And from what transpires in this exclusive clip from Friday's episode titled "Stories We Tell Our Young," the newest team member — a vet who knows a suspicious amount of human doctor-type factoids — could really come in handy when Nick and Hank catch a case of a child who has shown signs of possession for a year.

On "American Horror Story: Coven," the notorious bad witch Madison, played by Emma Roberts, is not one to take things lightly. Read: coming back from the dead, initiating the season's first threesome, and gunning for the role of Supreme. But despite her sideways smirks and vengeful antics, Madison has started to show a more insightful and deeply wounded side that's beginning to balance her extremes. Yahoo TV spoke with Roberts by phone and got the scoop on just how far both she and Madison are willing to take it — which is to say, all the way and then some. Roberts clued us in about her major nerves working alongside Jessica Lange, embracing her personal obsession with witches, and being up for anything that comes Madison's way this season.
