The judges are kicking off the show by telling each of the remaining contestants whether or not they’ve made it through to the judges’ homes. This is the hard part, but they’ve made their decisions. On the final day of Boot Camp, they’ve got to deliver the news.
There are four separate groups, Teens, Over 25s, Young Adults and Groups. The young adult group is first to learn their fate. Getting through are Cece Frey, Willie Jones, Jennel Garcia, Nick Youngerman, Paige Thomas and Jillian Jensen.
Out of the over 25s category, those who are going through to the next round are Jason Brock, David Correy, Tara Simon, Daryl Black, Tate Stevens and Vino Allan.
Out of the groups category, going through to the next stage in the competition are Sister C, Dope Crisis and Emblem3.
For the last category, the teens, the following are getting through to the next stage in the competition. Beatrice Miller, James Tanner, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Diamond White, Reed Deming and Arin Ray.
Someone is calling a few of the contestants back to the stage. Simon said that these are the ones that they genuinely cared about. After separating them, he has invited them to the judges’ homes.
Now, they’re divulging who’s mentoring which category. Britney Spears is mentoring the Teens, which is the category she wanted. Up next, Simon Cowell has learned that he is mentoring the Groups category. Demi Lovato just learned that she is mentoring the Young Adults, leaving L.A. Reid with the Over 25s, which is not something he cares for.
Each of the members of the categories are meeting their respective judges and all of them are excited.
Jennel Garcia is up first performing for Demi and Nick Jonas. She’s singing “I Kissed A Girl” by Katy Perry. She’s pretty good! Singing next is Willie Jones, performing “Nobody Knows” by Babyface. This is the same song that he bombed with during Boot Camp. This performance was definitely better than the last. Singing next is Jillian Jensen, performing “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles and she rocked it. Up next is Nick Youngerman, singing “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha. This might not have been a great song choice for him. Next up is Paige Thomas singing “Turn Up The Music” by Chris Brown and this girl is FIERCE. Cece Frey is rounding up the category, performing “I’m Sexy (And I Know It)” by LMFAO.
Simon’s groups are going next with Playback singing “Rich Girl”. Emblem3 is up next and they’re great. Sister C is up next and they’re also really good. Lyric145 is up next performing and they’re killing it. They are a favorite of ours already. Dope Crisis is singing next and they’re okay. LYLAS is up next and they’re really talented.
