It seems like just yesterday when our jaws dropped at the first notes of two 13-year-old wise-beyond-their-years girls. Or when a group of surfer boys from SoCal proved they are true originals. Or when a confident songbird showed her true spots. Or when a certain rapper freaked the judges' out with his crazy zombie eyes. You get the picture - they all left an indelible mark on our minds and now their X FACTOR journey flourishes onto the Live Shows, which start early November.
Our acts have gone through a lot to secure their rightful spot in the Top 16. They've shed tears, formed friendships and rivalries, and lost a night of sleep or two. But, most important, they left it all on the stage to get to the next round. Our cameras caught up with the lucky 16 who make it through and the heart-broken eight whose journeys end here in our brand new video series, Judges' Homes Post Reveal Interviews. Click HERE to hear their joy and heartbreak straight from each of the acts.
The Top 16 are:
Britney Spears' Teens
Carly Rose Sonenclar
Demi Lovato's Young Adults
L.A. Reid's Over 25s
Simon Cowell's Groups
And, the eight acts whose X FACTOR adventure has come to an end are: Groups Dope Crisis and Playback, Over 25s Daryl Black and Tara Simon, Teens Reed Deming and James Tanner, and Young Adults Jillian Jensen and Nick Youngerman. Don't worry, you'll certainly be hearing from them soon, starting with how they felt after getting the bad news during these Judges' Homes Post Reveal Interviews.
