This week on the show we continued our bootcamp, narrowing 120 contestants through from the auditions down by half. By the end of this week, we'll be down to just 24. Only six acts in each of the four categories will make it through to the Judges Houses - Girls, Boys, Over 30s and Groups. It's anyone's guess as to which of these talented singers will get to continue on the path towards 5 million dollars.
Then the next questions is who the judges, with the help of Justin Bieber, Marc Anthony, Will.i.am and Joe Jonas, will send through to the make or break live shows in a few weeks time?
Someone else who might be standing on the stage during those big performances shows, could be the worst kept secret on the X Factor this year. Weeks have gone by with speculation mounting over whether or not Khloe Kardashian has got the job as a host on the X Factor. Rumours of her multi million-dollar deal surfaced here in LA last week. However, speculation could be over, after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was seen here in Hollywood where the show is filmed at the CBS studios. The thing is, Simon knows what he's doing and this has been in the magazines here for the last 2 months, keeping the show front and center. My Guess is it will be milked right to the end, with the big announcement after the judges houses next week.
Finally, Britney Spears has been up to all sorts of things this week. Between her judging position on the show, she has also just launched her new fragrance and is now adding something else to the mix. Everyone on the show is speculating a to whether Britney will perform this year. Well, to do that she would need to release some new music in the coming weeks and this cryptic message and photo, has everyone hoping. The pop princess took to her Facebook page to tease a photo of herself being filmed for something and that's all we know!
"Shooting something top secret today. Can't wait for u guys to see it"
There are rumours she has a song in the pipeline with will.i.am so perhaps this could be the music video for that song. Guess well all have to wait and see.
