Musicians Enrique Iglesias and Pharrell Williams will join Mariah Carey and Rihanna on tonight’s episode of “The X Factor.”
The 32 remaining contestants, divided into four groups, will be at the judges’ houses tonight. The groups will be at Paula’s, the girls at Simon’s, the boy’s at L.A.’s and the Over 30s at Nicole’s. Joining each judge will be on of the music superstars mentioned above. We know Mariah will be at Simon’s and Rihanna at L.A.’s, but we’re not sure of the others.
“The acts were totally blown away meeting their mentors at these amazing homes – then it was even more nerve-racking performing for a guest judge,” a source tells People Magazine. “Some of the girls especially were delighted when they saw Enrique and Pharrell. The acts who met Rihanna were totally speechless – who knows how they managed to sing!”
After tonight, there will only be 16 contestants moving on to the live performance shows. The guest stars will help the judges make their final cuts.
