After last week’s episode of The X Factor left us without answers as to which contestants would making it through to the next round, tonight we finally find out whether or not our favorites will be sticking around in the competition.
Tonight on The X Factor, the final cuts at Boot Camp will be made, whittling the competition down to a mere 24 contestants. After learning their fate, those fortunate enough to be continuing on get to head to the judges’ luxurious homes where they will meet their guest mentors. Mentoring the singers this season are Marc Anthony (who pairs with Simon), will.i.am (Britney), Nick Jonas (Demi), and Justin Bieber (L.A. Reid), which should lend itself to a good amount of star struckedness for the contestants, not to mention huge pressure to sing not only in front of these major celebrities, but the judges.
Now that the contestants are divided into teams, the competition should begin to really heat up between the judges themselves, each hoping to be the one to bring the next winner of The X Factor to the table. With each judge seemingly already talking a healthy amount of smack, it will be interesting to see which one actually comes out on top.
The X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.
