Season 3 of “The X Factor” has started, and viewers are already seeing some solid talent. Many fans are already anxious for “The X Factor” spoilers, and on Sept. 11 spoiler guru Jork confirmed the Top 16 live show contestant results in the American Idol forum. Which judges get which groups, and will your favorite make it to the live shows?
According to “The X Factor” spoilers from Jork, there is a twist in paring down the Top 40 to the Top 16 this season. It seems that as the judges pare down their groups, they can end up swapping people out as the final performances are done. This means that someone may have a seat in a group's Top 4 for a while, and then lose it if the mentor feels a subsequent performance justifies a switch. From the sounds of it, this created some brutal heartbreak.
Also according to Jork, who is a phenom at scoring the scoop on the spoiler lists for these shows, Simon Cowell again mentors the groups. Paulina Rubio has the boys, Demi Lovato has the girls and Kelly Rowland has the “overs.” As for which category is the strongest this season, there has been a lot of buzz but of course the viewers will ultimately decide that with their votes.
