After tough deliberation in the “Judges’ Homes” round of THE X FACTOR, Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid, and Britney Spears each revealed the four acts in their categories that will continue in the competition. All 16 acts will perform on a special live two-and-a-half hour event, hosted by Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez, on Thursday, Nov. 1 (8:00-10:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).  THE X FACTOR live shows continue on a special night on Sunday, Nov. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) with additional performances and the announcement of the Season Two finalists.


Teens (16 and under) whom Britney Spears is mentoring:  

“I had a really tough time picking my final four – all of my kids were incredibly talented,” said Spears. “But I do believe I have the winner, so watch out Simon!  You and your groups are going down!  My Teens and I have some surprises in store for you.”
