We know how much fans couldn’t get enough of the first season of “The X Factor USA”, so we’re giving you a heads up on what’s to come for the show’s second season. As fans of the talent competition ourselves, we were happy to announce on June 20th that the show would be premiering on September 12, 2012. And now, we’ve got some more goodies about what will be happening.
WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the second season of “The X Factor USA 2012”. Please turn back now if you don’t wish to be spoiled as to what happens in season two.
Carla Hay at Examiner.com has blown the lid on the second season and here’s what we’ve learned.
The show has eliminated the categories for the contestants based on their sex and has instead opted to categorize them by age. Also changing is the category for the Over 30 competitors, which the requirement has been lowered to 25-years-old.
The new categories for season two are as follows:
Demi Lovato will be mentoring the solo singers within the 12 to 16 age group. Britney Spears will be mentoring the group of solo singers between the ages of 17 and 24. L.A. Reid will be taking on the solo singers between over the age of 25-years-old and Simon Cowell will be taking on the groups category.
