Chaos in Kansas

One of the most action packed episodes you're likely to see of The X Factor (there's emergency vehicles, sickness, stealing and even a birthday!) This week the show went to Kansas City and back to San Franciso. Simon was too sick  to judge so his friend Louis Walsh, a reality TV pro, filled in as judge, and although the contestants had no problem celebrating Simon's high temperature the show isn't quite as entertaining without his quips. There were a lot of amazing acts this week, like Panda Ross's version of "Bring it on Home to Me," (her amazing performance may have been upstaged by her asthma attack followed by a pick up in a stretcher afterward) and 13-year-old Cinderella-esque Diamond White's version of "It's a Man's World." Tate Stevens, a father in his late 30s, amazed the judges with his Southern charm and genuine country talent. One disgruntled contestant walked off with a  $3000 microphone after a judge walked off and Britney sweetly sang happy birthday to L.A. Reid.
