The second season of X Factor has made it through their audition phases and their semifinals all the way down to the top-16 for the finals. These 16 contestants remaining will have the chance to become the second-ever winner on the show.
The four judges, Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, and L.A. Reid have all said that they are very happy with the top-16 finalists that have been selected. Cowell even said that these contestants are a lot better than last season in the show’s freshman season.
The finals begin this week on Wednesday night for a special two hour episode to kick things off.
Then on Thursday, a one-hour show will be held where contestants will be declared safe, or not safe and having to compete for their lives on the show. Not only that, Wednesday will also introduce new judges in Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez. This gives a total of six judges on the show.
