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!

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
