Don’t miss this explosive episode when the judges must decide who will become one of THE X FACTOR finalists.
On Wednesday, Nov. 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), THE X FACTOR enters a new phase of the competition, in which the Top Finalists from all categories compete against each other for the first time. The finalists will perform not only for the praise of Simon, Paula, L.A. and Nicole, but for America’s votes as well, when the voting lines open immediately after the show.”
