The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 9:: Bootcamp #3

Oct 11, 2012

This week on The X Factor the contestants find out who made it through to the judges houses. Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of Episode 9, Bootcamp # 3 which aired October 10th, 2012.

The Finalists

Last week The X Factor left audiences hanging to find out which contestants would make it to the next round at bootcamp to perform one on one for the judges at in their beautiful homes. Here's a list of who made it through in each category.

Young Adults: CeCe Frey, Willie Jones, Jennel Garcia, Nick Youngerman, Paige Thomas, Jillian Jensen

Over 25′s: Jason Brock, Daryl Black, David Correy, Tara Simon, Tate Stevens, Vino Alan

Groups: Sister C, Dope Crisis, Emblem 3

Teens: Beatrice Miller, James Tanner, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Diamond White, Reed Deming, Arin Ray

But wait, just as the dismissed contestants were outside consoling eachother several outstanding people were called back to form 3 new groups! After that the judges went home and waited for the call that would let them know which group they would be mentoring in their home, Demi was thrilled to get the Young Adults (17-24) and Britney got the group she wanted, the Teens! Simon wasn't thrilled about getting the groups, and L.A. was more than just a little disappointed to get stuck with the Over 25's, slamming down the phone when he heard.

Simon's House

The groups were taken to Simon's grand mansion in Miami, and he brought out his friend latin singer Marc Anthony to help him critique and mentor the groups. The newly formed group Playback went first singing a revamped version of "Rich Girl," by Hall and Oates featuring some light rapping, but while there are some strong voices in the group, it wasn't a mind-blowing performance and Marc wasn't feeling it at all.

The guys in Emblem3 have been a popular choice in the competition and took the stage with their usual swagger singing The Police classic "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," unfortunately for them their performance fell short of magic, with one member missing his cue.

Sister C performed a pitch perfect rendition of "Leavin'" by Shelby Lynne, but Simon cautioned them that despite their incredible talent they needed to open up to audiences and exude more warmth instead of retreating into themselves.

Simon teamed up rappers 145 and Lyric Da Queen to make Lyric145, and they infused Miley Cyrus's pop hit "Party in the USA" with some unforgettable hip hop flavor. Marc loved Lyric, and thought she outstripped the guys, but Simon thought they were all a little "sloppy." Dope Crisis performed Nicki Minaj's "Superbass" and both Simon and Marc doubted their ability to improve.

The last group to perform was The Lylas (Love Ya Like A Sister) where they blew the judges away with their incredible vocals on a heartfelt performance of Shontelle's "Impossible." Has Simon found a female One Direction this time around?

Demi Lovato's Loft

At Demi's loft she invited her longtime friend and fellow musician Nick Jonas to help her judge and mentor her bootcampees, and although she's young Demi has no problem being direct when discharging her advice.

The first to perform was saucy-yet-cute Jennel Garcia who chose "I Kissed A Girl," it was clear that Demi's advice to reel in her hair tossing movements threw her a little, but she still turned in a great performance.

Country singer Willie Jones may have stumbled on the '90s hit "Nobody Knows" last week, but that didn't stop him from performing it for Demi and Nick, with Nick saying that he was clearly a star but may have to decide in the future between country and R&B.

Jillian Jensen performed Sara Bareilles "Gravity" perfectly, and Nick and Demi both thought she was talented and lovable. Nick Youngerman hyped himself up and took on "Tik Tok" by Ke$ha with undeniable confidence, and while Nick thought his performance was enjoyable Demi worried that it bordered on annoying.

Paige Thomas sang Chris Brown's "Turn Up the Music" as a slow ballad, and although her vocals were good, her confidence seems to be ebbing away and the judges have noticed. She was followed by Cece Frey, who Demi approached before the audition to warn her that her attitude so far wasn't vulnerable enough and may come off as unlikable. The advice came just in time, she performed "Sexy and I Know It" for judges and hit a home run.

Check out the LYLAS performance for Simon below!
