So… did your favorite make the cut?
The X Factor unveiled its top 32 contestants last night, throwing in the one twist that really does make this competition different from American Idol: There are four groups of eight, each to be mentored by one of the judges.
Before we get to the remaining hopefuls, though, it’s worth taking a moment to watch Stacy Francis audition during Bootcamp, announcing that her father has just passed away before going into a rendition of “Summertime.”
Powerful stuff. Now, on to the groups and the judge assigned to each:
THE BOYS (L.A. Reid)
OVER 30s (Nicole Scherzinger)
