Last week the top 17 acts who survived the judges round performed and were whittled down to the top 12 by their judges. Tonight the top 12 acts performed live, with one to be eliminated this week as the show moves to the standard performance/results show format. The good news is that XFactor has been renewed for a second season. Simon was thrilled and said “I am absolutely thrilled with the news. I have loved making the show and I want to thank FOX, our sponsors and most importantly, the fans for supporting The X Factor.”
Now that the judges’ home rounds are over, the competition get live, and tough. The contestants sang in front a stadium level audience and probably felt more pressure than ever before. The show was already long and it was a small miracle that they managed to get all 17 performances in the two and a half hours. These rounds are going to be entertaining. Not only the acts performing, but the competition we see from the judges. They can now slam each other for song choices etc, and they do not disappoint.
Tonight, the judges take each of their groups to their homes. They were split into four groups Girls, Boys, Over 30s and Groups. Simon got the girls, the groups went to Paula, the over 30’s went to Niocle and the boys got LA Reid. The girls are probably the luckiest, flying to Paris to meet Simon. The groups go to meet Paula in Santa Barbara and the boys head to the Hamptons to meet LA Ried. The over 30’s go to Malibu for to Nicole Sherzingers home.
