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!

Vsauce. He's so smart and fun to watch in my opinion. He's done so many weird questions to begin with in just basic science and such. Its beautiful.

Oh my gosh. Its been so long since I've seen any halo fans like me, I'm definitely able to do voice overs in the cast but it kills me so much that I dont got my 360 live anymore but instead on xbox one. Hopefully I'll do something about it omg. Im in love with halo machinimas such as Red Vs Blue and so on.
