The X Factor auditions are finished. Now we head into Boot Camp and the Judges Houses. Both phases of the competition have been taped and spoilers naming the Top 17 contestants headed to the Love Shows, which begin on November 1, have emerged Via Carla Hay of The Examiner
Check out the Top 17 below. Also, the original article has a list of judges house rejects. There are 17 contestants again this year, meaning there is probably some sort of wild card or twist that resulted in an extra contestant. You’ll remember last year, Simon “changed his mind” after eliminating Melanie Amaro at the judges houses. He arrived at her house in Florida in order to invite her to be the 5th contestant on his team, and the 17th contestant overall. As you know, Melanie went on to take the crown.
UPDATE: The Examiner spoilers I originally posted seem to be wrong. Here’s a new list via Digital Spy via Jork. The differences: Reed Deming, Tara Simon are out. Willie Jones and David Correy are in. Lyric Da Queen has been added to One4Five
UPDATE2: Y’all know these spoilers are unconfirmed right? And to Examiner reporters complaining that I linked to Carla. I rarely link to ANY of you. I am well aware that anybody can post anything they want as there is no fact checking or editorial oversight at The Examiner. JSYK.

looks like there will be a wildcard added (similar to uk show) so acts cut at judges houses (Jillian jensen, Reed Deeming, JT, Sisterc, Daryl Black, etc) get a life line! either that or actually its only 3 of the 4 stated get through to the lives and the other is the wildcard for each category…i dunno dont really see the need for the wildcard 16 is more than enough…
