They've come a long way – and on Wednesday night, The X Factor's four semi-finalists each made their case for a spot in next week's three-person finale.

But who made the best case?

Melanie Amaro sang "Hero" by Mariah Carey and "Feeling Good." Marcus Canty tackled Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You" and "Careless Whisper" by Wham! Chris Rene went with "Fly" by Sugar Ray and Alicia Keys's "No One." And Josh Krajcik sang the Beatles' "Come Together" and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

Amaro and Krajcik seemed to earn the highest marks from the judges, with Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger gushing over Amaro, and Paula Abdul brought to tears (the good kind) by Krajcik's performance.

Tell us below which of the semi-finalists most deserves to be in the finale:
