Only four contestants from each group will go through to live performances — who do YOU think will make it?
The X Factor is continuing to become my new favorite vocal reality show on TV. On the Oct. 13 episode (which was delayed a night due to baseball), the four groups of contestants — the over 30s, the girls, the guys and the groups — all traveled around the world and met their mentors and guest judges. The girls freaked out when they realized Simon Cowellwas their mentor in France. The over 30s didn’t seem thrilled to be placed with Nicole Scherzinger, but their eyes certainly lit up when Enrique Iglesias walked out the door as the guest judge. The groups with Paula Abdul were guest judged by Pharrell Williams; the boys got Rihanna (lucky!!) and the girls were supposed to have Mariah Carrey, but she couldn’t make it because of a hurricane. (Buzz kill!)
