Teens: Diamond White
ELIMINATED (5th Place)

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Mentored by: Britney Spears

About her: Like the other professionally accomplished 13-year-olds in Spears' group, White already has a formidable resume, full of theater and TV work. She toured with the national stage production of The Color Purple, and she's voiced characters for shows such as Phineas and Ferb. She also came off as supremely likable prior to her audition, when a grouchy Simon Cowell rolled his eyes and begged her not to try Adele. She smiled, promised to impress him, chose James Brown's "It's a Man's World," and proceeded to floor him. 

Why she got cut: When it came down to Diamond and Fifth Harmony, none of the judges threw their support for this 13-year-old aside from Britney. This is the second straight week of singing for survival after finally getting the cut. She sang Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance," but with Fifth Harmony's improvement on harmonizing, the L.A. native ran out of luck on Dec. 6.
