Tonight “The X Factor” wraps up the Boot Camp portion of the competition and takes us into the judges homes! What do Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato have in store for the contestants this time? Let’s find out in tonight’s recap of “The X Factor.”
To help the judges prep the contestants, they will be joined by mentors Justin Bieber,Will.i.am, Nick Jonas and Marc Anthony. We’re wrapping up boot camp and we’ll find out who made it to the Top 24. These guys will go on to the Judges’ Homes round to perform in front of the mentors. Justin Bieber is teamed with L.A. Reid, Nick Jonas will go with Demi Lovato, Will.i.am is with Britney Spears and Marc Anthony is teamed with Simon Cowell.
They show a montage of contestants and we find out who goes on to the Judges’ Round.
Young Adults: CeCe Frey, Jennel Garcia, Willie Jones, Paige Thomas,Jillian Jensen and Nick Youngerman.
Teens: Beatrice Miller, Carley Rose, Arin Ray, Reed Deming, Carly Rose Sonenclare, Diamond White and James Tanner.
Over 25: Jason Brock, David Correy, Tate Stevens, Vino Alan, Darryl Black and Tara Simon.
Groups: Emblem3, Sister C and Dope Crisis and makeshift groups of single contestants that include Playback and Lyric145.
Next we find out which group the judges are mentoring. Each judge will invite their mentees over to their home and decide which acts they want to coach to X Factor fame.
Britney Spears has the teens. Simon Cowell has the groups. Demi Lovato has the young adults, and LA Reid has the over 25.
L.A. Reid is very disappointed to get the over-25s. It’s also odd that they’re partnered up with Bieber since they’re the least likely group to even know who Justin Bieber is, let alone respect the coaching opinion of some kid.
Next its is time for everyone to audition. We get a look at each contestant’s accomplishments. The mentors also give advice to each of the contestants on how they can improve. The acts that make it out of this round have a real shot at winning the competition.
Jennel Garcia is up first singing “I Kissed A Girl” by Katy Perry. Willie Jones goes up performing “Nobody Knows” by Babyface, the same song he destroyed during Boot Camp. Then up is Jillian Jensen with “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles. Nick Youngerman sings “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha. Paige Thomas sings “Turn Up The Music” by Chris Brown. Cece Frey performs “I’m Sexy (And I Know It)” by LMFAO.
The groups group is the only group not based in Southern California. They get shipped off to Miami Beach to meet with Simon and Marc Anthony.
The contestants get another shot to sing before the it is time for the mentors to choose the acts they want to move to the next round. The 24 will be cut to 16 before we start seeing the acts live.
