After being cut off due to baseball delay last week, the full episode of "The X Factor (US)" final judges' house round was aired on Tuesday, October 23. The broadcast answered fans' questions of which acts securing the rest spots in the Top 16.
Following the footsteps of Jennel Garcia and Willie Jones, Paige Thomas and Cece Frey would perform on the live shows. Demi Lovato, who mentored the 18-24 year olds, teased Paige, "No matter what the future holds, you're going to continue to be a wonderful mother," before delivering the good news. This meant Nick Youngerman and Jillian Jensen were sent packing.
Simon Cowell also cut down the acts in the Groups from six to four. Emblem3 missed some lyrics during the performance, but the British producer saw them as a potential winner, so he gave them a pass to the next round. Lyric 145, Sister C and Lylas were the other groups on the Top 16, leaving Dope Code and Playback going home.
In previous broadcast, it was revealed that Britney Spears chose Diamond White, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Arin Ray and Beatrice Miller of Teens category to be in the Top 16. Meanwhile, L.A. decided to keep David Correy, Jason Brock, Tate Stevens and Vino Alan from Over 25s.
All remaining finalists will perform live starting November 1, when Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will make their debut as co-hosts.
