The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 8:: Bootcamp #2

Oct 05, 2012

This week on The X Factor the contestants that made it through auditions head to bootcamp in Miami, and go head to head for another round of eliminations to see who can win a chance to stay at the judges' rented homes! Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of Episode 8, Bootcamp # 2 which aired October 4th, 2012.

Task # 2

Last episode the contestants got whittled down from 124 to just 60 during Task #1, which involved performing a song in front of all the other bootcamp contestants. Last night for Task # 2 the judges asked the contestants to "duet against each other," meaning they would pick a song and break it up into two halves to compete against each other, with each set potentially having a winner with only 24 contestants left. Winning this round means a trip to one of the judges' Miami homes to train with them personally.

Highlights

Two girls from humble homes, 13-year-old Diamond White and Dinah Jane Hansen sing Kelly Clarkson's "What Doesn't Kill You," with Dinah stumbling on the lyrics but carrying on, and Diamond stealing the thunder was a bit of dramatic posing at the end which L.A. calls "genius." 13-year-olds Beatrice Miller and Carly Rose Sonenclair also perform very differently (with no backstage fighting) and do themselves justice with the judges likeing them both.

Sister C and 16-year-old Lauren Jauregui perform well but Britney and Demi both agree that the sisters are "annoying." And rocker Julia Bullock and Ally Brooke sing Guns N' Roses "Knocking on Heaven's Door," where Julia throws in all the vocal licks and kicks she can to impress.

Teen singers Normani Hilton and Arin Ray pick One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and decide to actually sing it as a duet to each other, sparking the idea that there may actually be some romance in the works.

Low Points

A common theme in this taks was one contesant outshining the other by picking the song and showing up their opponent, often with someone stumbling, forgetting the words or just cracking under the pressure. Diva vocal coach Tara Simon was paired with sweetheart rock singer 18-year-old Jennel Garcia - Tara picked Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" which Simon said "did nothing for either of them."

In Simon's words country singer Tate Stevens "hustled" 17-year-old Willie Jones, who stumbled on the lyrics to "Nobody Knows," a hit song in the '90s that Willie didn't even know! The same thing happened for competitors Cece Fray and Paige Thomas who sang "Secrets," by One Republic, a song that Paige wasn't familiar with. The judges noted that the girls looked "exhausted" from fighting each other.

Latasha Robinson exudes confidence, but crumbles into tears in front of the judges, leaving Jillian Jensen to give an outstanding performance. And tattooed roommates Vino Alan and David Corey perform Marvin Gaye's soul classic "What's Going On," only to have Vino storm off stage and throw his hat thinking he's blown it!

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.
