We are getting closer to the next phase of “The X Factor” airing here in the United States in bootcamp, and if you have watched the show on a number of occasions over the past several years, then you are probably pretty well aware already that this is among one of the most intense portions of the entire competition. Within just the span of a few short days, you hopes and dreams can be decided based on just a couple of performances in front of the most critical panel of judges on reality TV.
To make matters even worse, we are going to see a little bit more emotion from some of these people than we have to this point already. There will be tears, there will be competition, and there will of course be people getting extremely angry at themselves over struggling to perform to the specifications of what the judges are looking for.
By the end of this round, we will be down to just a small handful of singers in each one of the categories who will appear at the judges’ houses stage of the competition … but this will be a very different sort of categorization than we have seen on either the American or British show in the past. Rather than dividing the young people up by ages, we will instead have a division that is done via age. The underage contestants will be mentored by one judge, where as the 18-25 year-olds will be tackled by another. Finally, we will once again have the Overs along with the groups category, which we are understanding will be tackled by Simon Cowell in an effort to prove that there can be a great group to come out of an American talent competition.
Are you excited for bootcamp to star?
