The X Factor: Season 2, Week 2:: Auditions 4

This week on The X Factor the show heads off the beaten path to Greensboro, North Carolina in search of Southern charm in the fourth installment of auditions. Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of "Week 2, Auditions 4" of The X Factor,  which aired September 20, 2012.

Southern Style

A return to the South is a return home for veteran pop star and X Factor judge Britney Spears, but when the judges drove up to Greensboro things looked all but abandoned - because everyone was in line to audition! This episode had everything from unintelligible (and toothless!) Southern contestants to a freak storm put  the kibosh on some awkward auditions and added a dramatic backdrop.

The episode kicked off with with a surprise for the audience and judges when 17-year-old Lousiana-native Willie Jones, who had an updated Fresh Prince of Bel Air look (according to judge Demi Lovato), launched into Josh Turner's coutnry classic "Your Man." Contestant Julia Bullock, the lead singer in her band, decided to audition solo and won over the judges (and broke the hearts of her band) when she did Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks," getting her through to the next round and leaving the guys behind. Another surprise was young father Jeffrey Gutt's heartrending interpretation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Pouring his heart and soul into the performance worked and got him firmly on the judges side and into bootcamp.

Good, Not Great

One of the low points of the night was when Simon Cowell had to cut contestant Krysten Colon's audition short, no just because he hated her song choice - people need to stop picking Adele! He hates it! - but because he felt she wasn't ready and needed to come back later with another song. Krysten did just that but started out well and then clearly lost her pitch singing Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing." After the judges dismissed  her she launched straight into a angry fit, and as she stormed off Mama Colon said "Nobody promised her 4 Yeses."

Check out Willie Jones' performance of "Your Man" below!
