The X Factor Rainy-Day Results: Who Made the Top 16 (So Far)? Who Left?

Demi Lovato and Jennel Garcia

This is it. The X Factor judges have seen everything they need to see and now they're ready to officially kick the singers out of their houses. Will these young (-ish, in some cases) hopefuls go home or advance to the live shows? Due to a rather lengthy rain delay and wonky baseball programming, here's (some of) the results:

The X Factor: Who Should Get Cut? Who Should Advance?

Demi Lovato, Willie Jones

Now that The X Factor hopefuls have performed at the judges' homes, it's time to take the next step: live shows. But first, each of the mentors will have to eliminate two singers from their respective teams on Wednesday (8/7c, Fox).

Who deserves to ascend The X Factor stage? Who should give their vocal cords a rest? Before Simon & Co. make their crucial decisions and the requisite tears flow, we at TVGuide.com are offering up our predictions on who will make the Top 16:

The X Factor: Which Britney Teen Was a Dragon? Who Needed More "Sweet Moments"?

Carly Rose Soneclar

The X Factor continued Thursday night with the performances at the judges' homes. Picking up from where Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato left off, Britney Spears and L.A.

13. Best Surprise, Part I: When Mindy and her co-workers decide to go out for a night on the town on The Mindy Project, it's the practice's wet-blanket doctor, Danny (Chris Messina), who has a big trick up his sleeve: He can bust quite a move on the dance floor -- to the shock of his female colleagues. The only thing that could make his slick moves like Jagger even cooler? He tells Mindy that his mom put him in dance classes as a kid because he was getting into lots of fights. A guy who can throw a left hook and bump it? Oh, doctor!

The X Factor: Who Are the Top 24?

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato

The remaining field of 60 contestants (down from the original 120) was  further whittled down to the top 24 during the final round of boot camp cuts on Wednesday's two-hour episode of The X Factor. The remaining contenders were assigned into four categories (six in each), and found out which judge would be mentoring them. Simon Cowell will handle the groups; Britney Spears will take on the teens; L.A. Reid is in charge of the over 25s; and Demi Lovato will help the young adults along. As an added twist — only three groups were chosen initially, but the judges assembled another three from some of their favorite performers who weren't selected individually.

The X Factor: Which Contestants Choked During Boot Camp?

The X Factor

The X Factor's boot-camp phase continued Thursday, when the contestants were assigned a partner with whom they were required to perform a duet of their choosing. One member of each pair would be eliminated. (The purpose of boot camp overall is to whittle the 120 or so contestants who made it through the first round of auditions down to just 24.)

"The point of this challenge is very simple, which is: Be better than your opponent," according to judge Simon Cowell, who called the challenge "a nightmare."

The X Factor's L.A. Reid: Boot camp "separates the boys from the men"

That was putting it mildly for a good number of the hopefuls, as singer after singer was shown forgetting the words to the songs they had chosen — including Freddie Combs and Jessie Bryant, who were paired together. More than a handful, including Latasha Lee Robinson and the charming Willie Jones, were left in tears.

The boot-camp episodes have felt more than a little rushed so far, with half a week's worth of competitions being summarized in two montage-heavy hours. (Thursday's edition found enough wiggle room, however, to include a brief segment of the judge's sampling the new Pepsi X, the "official drink of The X Factor.")

Read on to see which contestants were hindered by their partners, and which ones choked on their own... read more

The X Factor's L.A. Reid: Boot Camp "Separates the Boys From the Men"

L.A. Reid

It's time for The X Factor to get down to business.

Beginning with Wednesday's episode, Fox's singing competition moved to the second phase of its sophomore season: boot camp, where the 120 or so contestants who made it through the first round of auditions will be whittled down to just 24 over the course of a week. According to judge L.A. Reid, boot camp really ups the ante for the hopefuls.

Simon Cowell's Second Chance Sets Off an X Factor Tantrum

Willie Jones

A storm put a literal damper on some of the less than impressive auditions during Thursday's episode of The X Factor, when some of the equipment was hit by lightning and the roof of the arena started leaking, but that was only the start of the evening's troubles. The hour started out... read more

The X Factor Night 3: One Contestant Arrested, Another Hospitalized

Cece Frey

It was a rough night for The X Factor, starting with Simon Cowell calling in sick for the Kansas City auditions. That meant Irish record executive Louis Walsh joined Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears at the judging table for the first half of Wednesday's episode. But Simon's absence was only the start of a rollercoaster night that included not one, but two calls to 911! Oh, and there were some memorable performances, too. read more

TVGuide.com Smackdown: Will The Voice or The X Factor Prevail?

Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera

Which singing show will reign supreme this fall?

NBC's The Voice threw down the gauntlet when it expanded its planned two-night Monday-Tuesday premiere to a third night on Wednesday, which puts it head-to-head with the first night of The X Factor's two-night premiere. In response, X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell deemed the move as "cold-hearted" and... read more
