The X Factor Unveils Top 32

by at . Comments

So... did your favorite make the cut?

The X Factor unveiled its top 32 contestants last night, throwing in the one twist that really does make this competition different from American Idol: There are four groups of eight, each to be mentored by one of the judges.

Before we get to the remaining hopefuls, though, it's worth taking a moment to watch Stacy Francis audition during Bootcamp, announcing that her father has just passed away before going into a rendition of "Summertime."

Powerful stuff. Now, on to the groups and the judge assigned to each:

THE GIRLS (Simon Cowell)
Caitlin Koch
Tora Woloshin
Simone Battle
Drew Ryniewicz
Rachel Crow
Jazlyn Little
Melanie Amaro
Tiah Tolliver

THE BOYS (L.A. Reid)
Brennin Hunt
Brian Bradley
Skyelor Anderson
Nick Voss
Tim Cifers
Phillip Lomax
Marcus Canty
Chris Rene

GROUPS (Paula Abdul)
Stereo Hogzz
4 Shore
The Brewer Boys
Illusion Confusion
The Anser

OVER 30s (Nicole Scherzinger)
Elaine Gibbs
Tiger Budbill
Leroy Bell
James Kenney
Josh Krajcik
Krista Collins
Dexter Haygood
Stacy Francis


i think rachel crow should have won the x factor she was the best one on there they made a mistake they sent the wrong one home


i loved her she is a great singer.. that's so sad how all you people are talking so bad about her. How many of you know her background or what she had to go through to get where she did.. you should think what if that was you would you like someone to talk about you like that.. You all need to find Jesus and stop talking bad about people.


@komeal and co, dont be hating! You'all sound like you have some personal vendetta against this lady. If her hair looks dirty its to do with the fact that she been a struggling single mom who is more interested in putting food on the table for her kids!! I absolutely love her!!


Honestly, thanks for sharing. This dirty bitch is fake from the word go. i didnt believe anything coming from her fake ass mouth. America will see her for what she is - a common dirty oily fraud and she should soon be eliminated, along with that young rapper with the bad attitude.


so what if this woman can't afford a million dollar makeover, many of us can't. what is important is that she has the heart and soul to get up there and sing in front of millions of people for a chance at a better life. at least she got out of her house and took this chance, something not many of us would not do. and maybe after this experience she will be able to afford to be better groomed. back off on the catty comments unless you are able to do the same thing she did.


when she scratched her scalp her entire head of hair shifted! she is awkward and i agree, dirty looking. unless she gets some massive makeover, i cant get past her funky presence. ill pass with this one, not getting my votes.


2 words for this beyotch - Drama Queen


I agree with Real. The girl seems off. I, too, was waiting for her to go a bit nutty on stage. She has some talent but seems lost and lacks confidence. I would question how many people would actually buy her CD. She would become another Rubin or Fantasia, not another Susan Boyle. I think she should get cut and concentrate on someone that could actually sel some CDs.

I love Stacy from the moment she spoke, God Bless her, and she is definately my pick for the show, her story, her passion, it shows thru her singing,,,good luck to you thats keepin' real..


I think that's a bit harsh on stacey. Shes probably had a hard life and her hair is okay. I dont think she will win anyway, there is a lot of great competition in there!
