We can't even imagine what a journey it has been for each of the X Factor finale contestants.
At the X Factor press conference, we got to hear how the finalists (Fifth Harmony, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens) are feeling and who the girls' celebrity crush is!
"I feel really good," said Tate, "This is an experience and an opportunity of a lifetime. For me, it's so surreal and humbling to be sitting up here with these people."
Tate also only had good things to say about his competition, "You look up the table and Fifth Harmony is right there, they're really talented girls in their own right, and of course Carly is really talented also."
It's been five long roller coaster rides for the girls of Fifth Harmony, "It's a blessing and honor to be here," they said. "We never thought that we could make it this far. It's absolutely incredible."
Carly, the youngest in the competition, felt the same way: "I'm really excited also. Just making it to the finals, I can't believe I even just said that."
But let's get down to the real business. Who are these girls' celeb crushes?
"Can we do everybody for that?" pleaded Carly. "I think Fifth Harmony wants to chime in." Camila from Fifth Harmony came to the rescue and responded with Carly, "One...two...three, Harry Styles!"
Then Carly came out of her shell and made a last-second addition: "And Channing Tatum!"
We can't argue with that.
Don't miss the X Factor finale on December 19 and 20th on Fox.
