It was the end of the road for Restless Road Thursday night on The X Factor .

Simon's country group was eliminated from the Fox singing competition, leaving three acts to vie for a Sony Music record contract next week.

The finalists are: Paulina Rubio 's "boys" contestant Carlito Olivero ; Simon's group Alex and Sierra ; and Kelly Rowland 's "Over 25" rocker, Jeff Gutt (pronounced goot). Judge Demi Lovato doesn't have any protégés left in the competition.

The one-hour results show featured performances by the finalists. Carlito sang "Suave (Kiss Me)" by Nayer ; Alex and Sierra covered Passenger 's "Let Her Go"; and Jeff belted out Journey 's "Open Arms."

In addition, Enrique Iglesias dropped by to perform his hit, "Heart Attack."

The third-season finale begins next Wednesday with the top three returning to the stage. A winner will be crowned in a two-hour finale the following night. Expect an appearance from One Direction next week, too.
