The X Factor Top 12 chosen

The X Factor Top 12 chosen

Finally, The X Factor judging will be in America’s hands. Simon, Paula, Nicole and L.A. have made their final cuts, and next week, America will decide who in the Top 12 will be moving on or going home.

During Tuesday’s live performance show, each judge had to cut one person from the category they’re mentoring. Simon had to cut two since he added a fifth contestant when he put fan-favorite Melanie Amaro back in the race.

So The X Factor Top 12 are:

Melanie Amaro, Drew, Rachel Crow, Chris Rene, Astro, Marcus Canty, Stacy Francis, Leroy Bell, Josh Krajcik, inTENsity, Lakoda Rayne and The Stereo Hogzz.

It’s a pretty solid Top 12 so America will have a tough job. If I had to make a prediction for the first act to go home on America’s watch, I’d go with inTENsity. I just don’t see voters connecting to a group of 10 kids. There are just too many of them.
