The X Factor Season 3, Episode 18: “Results Show” premieres tonight on FOX.

It was British Invasion night on The X Factor, yesterday. The Top 10 – Restless Road, Alex & Sierra, Tim Olstad, Josh Levi, Carlito Olivero, Rion Paiage, Khaya Cohen, Ellona Santiago, Jeff Gutt and Lillie McCloud – sang songs by select British artists and tonight One Direction takes to the stage to perform their new single. Also tonight, there will be another double elimination. Two of the Top 10 will be eliminated, which will leave the X Factor Season Three Top 8.

Here’s a synopsis of the competition show:

“In this American version of the hit U.K. show, Simon Cowell and his fellow judges search for a singer who has the “X” factor. Since its debut in 2004, “The X Factor” has remained the U.K.’s No. 1 program for the last seven years, peaking with an audience of 21 million for its 2010 finale. The format swiftly broke similar records around the world, where local versions have consistently rated No. 1. The series has received numerous honors worldwide, and more than 100 million records have been sold by artists launched through the series, including over 90 No. 1 singles and albums and 150 Top 10 records.

In a departure from other singing competition series, the first time contestants audition for The X Factor judges; Simon Cowell, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, they will do so in front of an audience of thousands – raising the stakes and increasing the pressure to impress not only the judges, but also a potential legion of fans. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to win an unprecedented $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. This year they will be judged by Simon Cowell, “L.A.” Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.”

The X Factor USA Season 3, Episode 18: “Results Show” airs Thursday, Nov. 21, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Fox. Take a look below at a recap of last night’s episode below.
