‘The X Factor’: Josh Krajcik, Stacy Francis among advancing acts

Josh was a standout.

There was so much happening on “The X Factor” Tuesday night, we felt like we were at times getting caught in a tailspin of singing and Steve Jones telling everyone to hurry things along.

So who ended up advancing following the massive 150-minute show? In no particular order, here we go…

The boys (L.A. Reid)

1. Brian Bradley – The young rapper

2. Chris Rene – The comeback

3. Marcus Canty – The fun-loving R&B star

The groups (Paula Abdul)

1. Stereo Hogzz – The last remaining group who actually auditioned for the show

2. InTENsity – The “Glee” club of this show.

3. Lakoda Rayne – The girl group

The over-30s (Nicole Scherzinger)

1. Stacy Francis – The inspirational story

2. Josh Kracjik – The man with a voice like a lion

3. Leroy Bell – The oldest contestant in the competition (who looks at least 15 years younger than 60)

The girls (Simon Cowell)

1. Rachel Crow – The favorite from the beginning

2. Drew – The artist (and Justin Bieber fan) formerly known as Drew Ryniewicz.
