I have to state this is an abbreviated version for America finds BASEBALL more important than anything else so the show was bumped for the World Series, so we didn’t see half of what really happened.
They start the show with Britney telling us who she picks as her final 4 – Britney has the Teens. She has picked Diamond White, 13 the African American girl from Chicago who Simon told was named quite accurately and is very talented, Carley Rose Soneclar who is also a very talented singer who is 13 and blew everybody away at try-outs and America. Arin Ray, 16 a young man who was on last years “X Factor” in a group is really good and Beatrice Miller, a 13 year old girl from NJ who is a very powerful singer. Britney’s criticism of Beatrice was that she was too loud. Needless to say, I don’t know if Britney knows what she’s talking about, so it’s not a surprise that her selection was excerpted.
LA Reid has the Over 25’s He decided to keep David Correy 26 who was hoping to find his birth mother (who supposedly got in touch with him thanks to The X Factor Wordwide popularity as she’s in Brazil), Jason Brock 34 from San Francisco the dramatic singer who sang “Big Girls Don’t Cry” at LA Reid’s house , Tate Stevens the country singer and father and Vino Alan the tough guy with the tatoos who I really liked and hoped would make it through.
Demi comes out looking like Boy George. I question her taste in fashion. Perhaps she needs someone to help her with style…I would be glad to take on the job. When the show opens at Demi’s house (and what a HOUSE Demi has……my Gawd there is some $$$$ in singing, boy do I wish I had a voice!) the drama ensues. She has the final 6 – Jillian Jensen the girl who has been bullied and has been through a lot of emotions both with us and Demi. Demi helped her get passed the first few hurdles, but I don’t know about this one. Paige Thomas, the really pretty African American mother who has has a half shaved head who has been fighting through the singing competition with Cece Frey the leopard painted-one who has been going through tempering her talent and her likability factor (She has issues with her stuck-upedness). Meanwhile Willie Jones the country singer has had to overcome his nosedive in the 2nd round when he forgot the words, Jennel Garcia the young girl who throws her hair around like a stripper and may not be ready for the big time, and Nick Youngman the rapper who may not be ready to compete with the others, the bar is too high (hate this analogy). Demi is ready to cut two. She cuts Nick Youngman and Jillian Jensen, the girl who was bullied. What a surprise. Jillian had been championed by Demi, but when it came down to it, she really did not have as much talent, it really was more emotions and I don’t think Nick did either. I think Demi picked the right two.
