'The X Factor' US 2013: Part 3 of the 'four chair challenge' reveals top 4 boys

"The X Factor" aired part three of the controversial "Four Chair Challenge" on Oct. 9, 2013. The top 10 boys were whittled down to a top 4 on "The X Factor." Last week Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato each picked their top four singers during the first week of the "Four Chair Challenge." Spoiler alert, tonight it is Paulina Rubio's turn to choose her top four boys. To see who goes through read the rest of this article.

The "Four Chair Challenge" twist is very dramatic and sometimes considered cruel because the judges can replace a contestant with another one. The four spots per category are not final decisions until all 10 singers perform. As a result of this twist the contestants do a lot of begging for a chair. Paulina picked Carlito Olivero, Carlos Guevara, Josh Levi and Tim Olstad as her favorites to win "The X Factor" in 2013. Meet the male contestants that will be working with Paulina Rubio this season.

Carlito Olivero is a 23-year-old from Chicago who works as a coffee barista. He sang "Stay" by Rihanna for his audition and says he aspires to become the "Latino Chris Brown."

Carlos Guevara is a 16-year-old boy with Tourette's syndrome from Lexington, SC. He sang "Gravity" by John Mayer for his audition.

Josh Levi is a 14-year-old boy from Fresno, Texas. Josh auditioned in Los Angeles by singing "Come and Get It" by Selena Gomez.

Tim Olstad is a 24-year-old from Minneapolis. Olstad was initially cut from the competition, but the crowd booed so loud that Paulina Rubio had to bring him back.

The "Four Chair Challenge" will last for two more episodes before "The X Factor" goes on a week-long hiatus. The top 16 contestants go on to the live episodes which are voted on by the public. Locally you can view "The X Factor" every Wednesday and Thursday on FOX channel WAWS 30 in Jacksonville.
