9:02PM EST November 8. 2012 - "The results are in!" said Mario Lopez.

Co-host Khloe Kardashian Odom was right by his side for Thursday's first X Factor elimination show. "Please don't let me cry tonight when we send someone home!" she tweeted just before going on the air.

But before we got to any results, the squealing started early and quickly as the crowd went crazy, crazy, crazy for teen heartthrob band One Direction —- who were contestants on the X Factor U.K. when Simon Cowell signed them and launched them to stardom. The guys took the stage to sing Live While We're Young as red and white balls bounced around them.

"Awesome performance," said Mario.

"How hot is One Direction!?" yelled Khloe to the crowd.

Then we got to see a new Pepsi ad featuring One Direction and NFL star Drew Brees. Product placement synergy!

And then came the first results. The acts all made their way on stage with their celeb mentors. Xix of the Top 12 were revealed:

Arin Ray, 17
Paige Thomas, 22
Diamond White, 13
Vino Alan, 40
Jennel Garcia, 18
Emblem3, the group of three guys from Huntington Beach, Calif.

One Direction came back to send fans swooning with soft song, Little Things. And we saw the Pepsi ad again.

And then more results. Going through:

Carly Rose Sonenclar, 13
Tate Stevens, 37
Beatrice Miller, 13
Lyric 145
Fifth Harmony

All of Britney's acts and all of Simon's acts made it through to the Top 12. It came down to the bottom two - Demi Lovato-mentored Cece Grey, 21; and L.A. Reid-mentored Jason Brock — just as we figured!

Cece opted for Cher's You Haven't Seen the Last of Me, with the hope of making it come true.

Jason poured his heart into Total Eclipse of the Heart (and for once, the crowd got silent and listened)!

Demi, of course, voted to send Jason home, while L.A. Reid voted to send Cece home. Britney, without hesitation, voted to send home Cece. And Simon voted for Jason. So it came down to America!

And America sent Jason Brock home. Part of what he said seemed to have been bleeped, or his mic wasn't working. He said, "I want to say I did it for the gays and Japan." He hugged L.A., who said, "I'm still proud of him. Every time he sang, he sang from the heart. He is very entertaining and I really loved working with you."

And then to spice things up, the show unveiled a leaderboard— a first for a singing competition show, noted Mario — based on the public vote. Here's how the acts stacked up:

1. Tate Stevens "Obviously people in America don't get out a lot," said Tate, laughing.

2. Carly Rose Sonenclar
3. Vino Alan
4. Diamond White
5. Fifth Harmony
6. Emblem3
7. Jennel Garcia
8. Paige Thomas
9. Lyric 145
10. Beatrice Miller
11. Arin Ray
12. Cece Frey
