On the Thursday episode of “The X Factor” task two of boot camp commences when the 60 remaining singers are put into pairs to battle it out on stage in whatcalls a simple challenge, “to be better than your opponent.”
For this task the singers must work together to choose their song from a list, decide who will sing what, and work together on putting together the performance.
During the hour long show only some of the singers were featured; there were some really good performances, some not so good performances, several who forgot the words, and the nerves and the pressure got the best of some of the singers.
The last two singers on stage were Cece and Paige. The girls are roommates and on Wednesday’s show they chose the same song – “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. They performed “Secrets” by One Republic – a song Paige says she did not want to perform. After the performance Simon noted that the singers looked exhausted.
Next week the 60 will become 24 as the finalists are chosen for who will go to the judge’s homes and who will go home.
