The X Factor took viewers to the homes of each of the judges last night, as each group of eight was assigned a song by his/her mentor and then proceeded to sing said song for said mentor, whose job it now is to narrow his/her group down from eight to four.

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

There might be competition for Melanie Amaro after all.

While that 18-year old might be considered the very early X Factor front-runner, a 21-year old rugby coach named Caitlin Koch also took to the stage last night and performed a stripped down version of "Stop in the Name of Love." It prompted Simon Cowell to simply utter "wow" halfway into the song.

L.A. Reid referred to the rendition as "very, very special" and now you can see it for yourself:
