Sep 27, 2012

This week on The X Factor the shows auditions from San Francisco, Providence, Rhode Island and Greensboro, North Carolina and come across lots of talent, including one famous rock star's daughter. Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of "Week 3, Auditions 5" of The X Factor,  which aired September 26, 2012.

Celebrity Sighting

In this special 2 hour episode of auditions from San Francisco, Providence and Greensboro there were plenty of contestants that were clearcut bootcamp material, and also lots who straight up bombed. Interestingly enough there was one rock star's daughter auditioning tonight, 19-year-old Sophie Tweed Simmons, daughter of Kiss Rockstar Gene Simmons. She admitted that she didnt want her dad's help and that her parents only found out the day before! She may have broken the "Adele Curse" when she did a jazzy version of "To Make You Feel My Love," sending her straight to bootcamp. She also may have unknowingly started a rivalry with fellow contestant (and noted drama queen)Tara Simon who sang "Without You" and refused to have the limelight taken off her - which is fine since she made it through to the next round. 

Standout Singers

There were more than a few contestants that wowed the judges in this episode, like Arin Ray (a return X Factor contestant) singing his smooth original song "Count on Me." Teen contestant Dinah Jane Hansen confessed to judges that she lives in a house with over 20 family members and then performed an unforgettable rendition of Beyonce's "If I Were A Boy." Father of 5 Daryl Black stunned the judges with his slowed down, silky version of the Gym Class Heroes hit "Stereo Hearts," and contestant David Jones had a touching story about being adopted and wanting to find his birth mother through music followed by a heartwrenching version of Bruno Mars' "Without You." Other highlights included a performance by an energetic rap duo One4Five as well as an original take on "Ice Ice Baby" by anitor jNick Youngerman.

Kid in a Coma

As the episode neared the end audiences were introduced to 13-year-old Trevor Moran, who loves to make dance videos and post them on the internet, but his unbeatable enthusiasm soon drained out of him, as well as all the color in his face! Paramedics were called, and instead of auditioning they moved to the next contestant, but the show left us on a cliffhanger as to what happens to cheerful kid.
