X Factor 3 Top 16 Spoilers (UPDATED) (VIDEOS)

The X Factor Top 16 was chosen from a group of 40 contestants in front of a live audience on Sunday and Monday in Los Angeles. Here’s a list of The Top 16 and the original Top 40 from the spoiler thread at Idol Forums

This live round is new–replacing boot camp and the judges houses. Contestants were assembled for Boot Camp a few weeks ago, only to be told it was cancelled.  The 200+ contestants were assembled on stage, and the Top 40 were announced.

The new live Final rounds have a twist.  If a singer was safe after a performance, their mentor asked them to take a seat on stage. However, if  the mentor liked another singer better later on in the round, they could eliminate a contestant already declared safe to make room for the new contestant. Oh the drama!

X Factor premieres on WEDNESDAY September 11!
