HOT FROM FOX...
"THE X FACTOR" JUDGES REVEAL TOP 12 FINALISTS
TOP 12 PERFORM LIVE FOR AMERICA'S VOTES
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7 ON FOX
Live Results Announced Thursday, November 8
Tonight, the judges - Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears - revealed the Top 12 finalists who will advance in the competition, and take the stage LIVE next week to perform for America's vote. At the beginning of the show, the judges picked two acts from each category to move on in the competition. Then, the remaining eight acts battled it out for the final four spots. After tough deliberations by the judges, the Top 12 finalists are: Teens - Beatrice Miller, Arin Ray and Carly Rose Sonenclar; Young Adults - CeCe Frey, Jennel Garcia and Paige Thomas; Over 25s - Vino Alan, Jason Brock and Tate Stevens; and Groups - 1432, Emblem3 and Lyric 145. At the end of the broadcast, Simon asked fans to help him rename 1432 by submitting group name ideas at www.TheXFactorUSA.com.
On Wednesday, Nov. 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), THE X FACTOR heats up as the Top 12 finalists, with the help of their mentors, take the stage once again. But this time, it will be up to America, as well as the judges, to decide who moves forward in the competition.
Immediately after the performance show, fans will be able to vote via 1) Verizon Touch Voting on The Xtra Factor App on Verizon Android devices; 2) toll-free calling; 3) text messaging for Verizon Wireless customers; and 4) online at TheXFactorUSA.com. Fans with valid Facebook accounts can also vote at Facebook.com/TheXFactorUSA.
Then, on Thursday, Nov. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), tune in to the first LIVE results show of the season, as hosts Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez reveal the results of America's votes and one finalist is eliminated from the competition.
