While Simon Cowell celebrated his 50th birthday this weekend, his UK talent show, the X Factor aired its Judges’ Houses episodes.
Saturday night, the Top 24 sang for their respective mentors, literally all over the world, then on Sunday, the 24 were whittled down to 12.
After the jump, check out who made the cut. I also linked the finalists to their Judges’ Houses auditions so you get a feel for who they are.
There’s a nicely organized list of videos HERE. Clips from tonight’s eliminations are posted. The cute American from Chicago didn’t make it, and True Colorz were disqualified because one of their members was underage.
Also, the Guardian recaps both shows HERE.
I haven’t had the chance to watch these clips yet, but those of you who have, what do you think? Do you agree with the eliminations or not?
