EXCLUSIVE: 'X Factor' Contestants Talk Greatest Fears

It was Thanksgiving week at the X Factor USA, and the contestants received a pleasant surprise with the arrival of their families. Unfortunately, two contestants were still sent home.

Lillie McCloud, the gorgoeus grandma from judge Kelly Rowland's "Over 25's," and season 3 standout Josh Levi were sent packing.

Levi's mentor and judge was Paulina Rubio, and his elimination was a shocker.

Rubio, when announcing Levi's name for Thursday night's "Save Me" performance, mistakenly called out Carlito Olivero (who was the first one saved) during the live taping.

Rubio and Rowland chose to save Levi and Demi Lovato chose to save Rion Paige leaving Simon Cowell to choose Leci, or cause his vote to end in deadlock. This meant the decision was back in the hands of America, with Levi having the least amount of votes.

But before eliminations, we caught up with a few contestants backstage, where they dished on their greatest fear, worst thing they ever done, and their best date.
