When we last left “The X Factor’s” four-chair challenge, the Over 25s chosen by Kelly Rowland were Jeff Gutt, Rachel Potter, James Kenney and Lillie McCloud. The girls chosen by Demi Lovato were Khaya Cohen, Danielle Geimer, Rion Paige and Ellona Santiago.
Tonight, Paulina Rubio actually cut a few people before her chairs were full, which is nice to see. Demi and Kelly were being too soft on their categories.
The boys who advanced with Rubio are Carlos Guevara, Tim Olstad, Carlito Olivero and Josh Levi. We thought she actually made four great choices, we didn’t have a quibble with any of them.
With Simon Cowell and the groups, we only got through the first five groups — Girls United, Wild Thingz, Glamour and Restless Road. All four of them were put into seats, which was very anticlimactic.
Tune in tomorrow night to find out which final four groups Cowell ends up with for “The X Factor” Season 3.
