Thanks to a baseball postseason rain delay, last week's episode of "The X Factor" Top 16 reveal was abruptly cut in half. So Fox scheduled the show on Tuesday night at 9:30 p.m. ET so the judges could finish revealing their full Top 16.
Last week, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears picked their groups' contestants who would advance to the live shows. So what mattered this week was seeing which four singers Demi Lovato picked for the Young Adults category, and which four Groups made it through Simon Cowell.
For Lovato, one choice was particularly difficult. Jillian Jensen had moved the judges at her initial audition, but Lovato felt she simply wasn't ready. But don't feel too bad for her, as The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Jensen worked with The Fontaine Brothers on an anti-bullying track released on iTunes already.
Also not making it to the live shows from Lovato's group was Nick Youngerman. That means she put through CeCe Frey, Jennel Garcia, Willie Jones and Paige Thomas. For the Groups, Simon sent through Emblem3, LYLAS, LYRIC 145 and Sister C, meaning it was the end of the road for Dope Crisis and Playback.
"The X Factor" now makes room for the World Series, returning with its first live performance show on Thursday, November 1 at 8 p.m. ET -- though it could always come back a little early if the Fall Classic fails to go seven games. A special Sunday elimination episode will follow. After that, the show settles back into its regular Wednesday and Thursday slots.
