X-Factor, Oct. 6 – From Skid Row to Here

The eight Guys moving through are Brennin Hunt, Brian Bradley, Skyelor Anderson, Nick Voss, Tim Ciphers, Phillip Lomax, Marcus Canty, and Chris Rene. The younger ones not making it through console each other.

The eight Groups making it to next week are The Stereo Hoggz, 2Squar’d, 4Shore, The Brewer Boys, Illusion Confusion, and Anser.

The eight Over 30s making it through are Elaine Gibbs, Tiger Budbill, Leroy Bell, James Kenny, Josh Krajcik, Christa Collins, Dexter Haygood, and Stacy Francis. I think her angel is with her. Dexter cries so hard, and L.A. tells him he always thought it was over, but it’s time to start believing in himself. Paula runs up and cries along with him. He says, “From Skid Row to here, man.” L.A. pulls Gina to the side to tell her her brother Chris made it. She knows he’s going to do it. 

But wait, it’s not over yet. The judges ask fourteen acts from the 30 and under category to come back to the stage. Nick Dean is among those called back. L.A. tells them they often look for artists that have the potential to be solo performers, but they often cast them in groups. They are making two groups out of these performers, as they think if they had come in as groups, it would have been a no-brainer. 

The judges are now being assigned their categories. Funny that L.A. is at work, Nicole is at work, Paula is at home in L.A., and Simon is on vacation in France. Just … funny. L.A. mentions the strongest category is the Over 30s, and Paula would be excited to work with the Guys. Simon thinks whoever has Groups will have a hard time, and Paula agrees. Nicole would like the Girls category. L.A. believes has a better shot at winning no matter what category he gets. 

Nicole will be mentoring the Over 30s. So they give the youngest judge to them? She says she can do that. L.A. gets the Boys. He thinks he just won, but wants to know what Simon got. Paula gets the Groups. Simon, then, gets the Girls, of course. He mentions that the eight girls were just made very happy. L.A. tells Simon he just met his match. Simon has a bag of tricks, but L.A. thinks his is a little deeper.

It seems they gave the judges categories that will challenge them, that is, Nicole and Paula. Simply put, L.A. and Simon aren’t going to be challenged no matter what, as this is what they do. And already next week, although it was hard to cut these categories down to eight apiece, they’ll be down to four in each category after spending time in the judges’ homes. At this point, I can’t imagine losing any more than a handful collectively from all the categories.
