The 2012 X Factor USA Top 16 have been leaked. This is a spoiler a week in advance of the announcement, so if you don’t want to know, stop reading. First to post about this was The Examiner, but then there was a correction Digital Spy. It seems that 17 are actually picked, like last year. So the judges may have decided to add one final person.
Here are the chosen ones:
Overs mentored by LA Reid
17-24s mentored by Demi Lovato
12-16s mentored by Britney Spears
Carly Rose Sonenclar
Groups mentored by Simon Cowell
One4Five (Lyric Da Queen added in)
Manufactured Girlband (Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello & Normani Kordei)
Last place is either
A) Manufactured Boyband (Brandan Hassan, Austin Corini, Johnny Maxwell, Owen Stuart & Josh Metzler)
B) Dope Crisis
The last contestant is no known yet.
