X Factor Judges’ Houses Begin Tonight! – Meet Your Top 32 (VIDEO)

The X Factor judges houses begin tonight. That’s when the Top 32, divided into 4 different groups, meet with their respective mentors to audition for the Top 16. LA Reid has the boys, Simon Cowell has the girls, Nicole Scherzinger has the Over 30s and it’s up to Paula Abdul to wrangle the groups!

In case you need a refresher, I’ve listed all the contestants below, with VIDEOS to keep handy.

Also, here is the revised X Factor schedule. The Judges Houses round will last 3 episodes. On Tuesday, October 25th, the big 2 1/2 hour “reveal” airs live.

  • Wednesday, Oct. 12 (8:00-1o:00 PM) Judges’ Homes, Part 1 (extended to 2 hours)
  • Thursday, Oct. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM) Judges’ Homes, Part 2 (extended to 2 hours)
  • Tuesday, Oct. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM) Judges’ Homes, Part 3 (Special Tuesday Airing) (extended to 2 hours)
  • Tuesday, Oct. 25 (8:00-10:30 PM) Finalists Revealed (Special Tuesday Airing)

Changes to the schedule have been recent–I would check your DVR’s to make sure the entire 2 hour show is set to record.
