The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 10:: Bootcamp #4
This week on The X Factor the contestants find out who made it through to the judges houses, and they perform for their mentors plus some special guests! Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of Episode 10, Bootcamp # 4, which aired October 11th, 2012.
On the last episode we got to see the contestants that made it through to Simon's pad and Demi's loft, namely the groups and the Young Adults, and the episode ended with the audience hanging on the edge of our seats wondering who would make it through. Last night we got to see the auditions of the Teens at Britney's place and the over 25's at L.A.'s House, and L.A. went from disliking his group to thinking he had some real contenders.
L.A. invited special guests Justin Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun to help him decide which four go through to the next round. Jason Brock started off the day strong by performing a jazzy version of Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry," and Justin noted that he gave it everything he had. David Correy performed Jessie J's "Domino," and L.A. felt that he "could go far," because he displayed "pure passion."
Daryl Black sang well, but L.A. didn't feel he sounded original enough despite him throwing his heart into it, and cowboy Tate Stevens gave a great performance but it may not have been enough. Next up was diva Tara Simons who sang Hoobastank's "The Reason" and seemed completely oblivious to her pitch problems. Justin, L.A. and Scooter agreed she had a "big" voice, but that she needed to be reeled in. Rocker Vino Alan did an emotional performance and L.A. said he really felt it, but had doubts as to whether the rough and tough tattooed dad was a marketable overall package.
Back at Britney's the teens got psyched up and nervous to perform for Britney and her friend Will.I.Am. Diamond White started off the day by singing a soulful version of Avril Lavigne's "With You," and Will.I.Am was impressed with her voice but said she needed more confidence performing. The adorable mini-Bieber Reed Demming sang "Hey There Delilah," and Britney thought that he did well, but could have pushed it more had he been less nervous. Will called him "a little emperor kid" because of hsi grown up attitude. Rapper James Tanner gave it all he had and showed them he could "Party Like A Rock Star," but even though Brit found it entertaining, they didn't know if it would be enough.
Smooth 17-year-old Arin Ray sang a slow melodious version of Nicki Minaj's "Starships," and Brit thought his vocals needed work. Beatrice Miller burst into tears before performing but pulled it together to do an oustanding version of "Titanium" by David Guetta and last but not least 13-year-old powerhouse Carly Rose Sonenclar did Karmin's "Brokenhearted." Still not believing her voice, the Will.I.Am said she was "possessed!"
We'll have to wait til next week to find out who made it through to the next performance!
