It was the first night based on audience votes, and all three of Simon Cowell’s girls KILLED it. Who is YOUR favorite so far?
Normally duringAmerican Idolseason there are two or three “favorite” contestants who consistently steal the spotlight and we can take or leave the rest. However, with The X Factor, there isn’t one contestant or group in the Top 12 who sticks out like a sore thumb. Virtually everyone rose to the occasion and performed their hearts out Nov. 2. That said, since we have to be picky, I think the group Lakoda Rayne and the over 30 LeRoy Bell were the weakest contestants out of the bunch. What about you?
After her impressive performance during ‘The X Factor’ live show, HollywoodLife.com caught up with the 13-year-old Rachel Crow backstage about her goals, dreams and favorite artists!
With her twinkling eyes and outgoing personality, Rachel Crow won us over from the second she bounded on stage during the premiere episode of The X Factor last month — and her flawless performance on the first live show last night had us just as impressed! After the show, HollywoodLife.com chatted with the driven 13-year-old singer, who dished about her mind-blowing experience and surprised us with her favorite artist!
The X Factor succeeded once again at keeping me totally enthralled through another “audition” episode, the sixth, to be exact! On tonight’s show we witnessed the tail end of boot camp in LA, the picking of the semi-final 32 contestants for each of the four groups and the dividing of the groups between the judges. It’s hard to believe the producers managed to squeeze so much into an hour and a half!
Nearly 200 contestants traveled to Los Angeles for a three day boot camp, where some of our old favorites fell to the bottom of the heap, while other unexpected performers rose to the challenge!
This week nearly 200 contestants came together in Los Angeles for “boot camp,” which consisted of a dance test and singing auditions. We saw all of our favorites from the first episodes and while some knocked it out the ball park (Rachel Crow and Chris Rene), others struggled. Stacy Francis, for example, totally butchered her audition by holding out her high notes wayyyyy too long. “That was absolutely over-the-top,” Simon Cowell said.
After seeing the first two episodes of Simon Cowell’s new reality show, ‘The X Factor,’ I can tell you it’s going to be the hottest show of the year!
I’m a reality competition show junkie. If you read HollywoodLife.com on a fairly regular basis, you know I cover Dancing with the Stars and American Idol religiously — and to be honest with you, the last thing I wanted on my plate was ANOTHER performing show. But then I saw The X Factor.
