In Case You Missed It: "X Factor" Top 32

By admin Published: October 7, 2011

I came back to the show for the "boot camp" episodes but am still less than thrilled. The overly dramatic, prolonged background music is especially annoying. And the selection of the top 32 clearly considered the dramatic-story potential of contestants as much or more than the music. Plus, with the breakdown of the contestants into four demographic groups (over 30s, groups, males under 30, females under 30), some contestants had an easier road because their group overall was small or less talented. I suppose it's comparable to playing in a bad division in pro sports (or a weak college league) but it still seems unreasonable. And I am tired of Simon implying that certain decisions are not his choice. It's his blasted show.

Anyway, after the jump is a list of the contestants continuing on the show.
