The X Factor RECAP 9/12/13: Season 3 Premiere Night 2 “Auditions”

Tonight THE X FACTOR USA returns to FOX with Night 2 of their 3rd season premiere. On tonight’s show there will be more auditions as the hopeful singers perform for our judges Simon Cowell, Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato. Did you watch last night’s premiere Night 1? We did and we have a full and detailed recap right here, for you.

On last night’s show we got to see the new judges table and how the new judges worked together. We have to say they certainly have a lot of chemistry, the judges lineup works a lot better than last season. The judges began the job last night of weeding through the masses who want to be crowned the winner of the X Factor. There were many singers but the standout performer of the night for me was 13-year-old Rion Paige. She was unfortunately born with a congenital defect that has affected her arms. However, that hasn’t stopped from always wanting to perform. She gave an amazing performance of Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away.” She also blew the judges away, they loved her and heaped tons of praise on her. I agree she was amazing. (Check out her performance below)

On tonight’s show the auditions continue and as usual there will be some good singer, some great singers and some not so great singers.

Tonight’s premiere night 2 is going to be an exciting one, which I am not going to miss and neither should you. So be sure to tune in for our live coverage of FOX’s The X Factor USA Season 3 Premiere Night 2– tonight at 8PM EST! Celeb Dirty Laundry is your go to place for all the up-to-date The X Factor News! While you wait for our recap, check out the video below of the judges speaking about what we can expect of Season 3!

RECAP: How many ways can Simon insult someone? Apparently a billion. However never believe he just being mean because that’s his nature. No he being honest. Sometimes brutally honest to the point the audience can see lawsuits forming into the minds of rejected contestants. What makes even more hilarious is that sometimes to let a contestant down, Demi, his new Paula, imitates his accent to do so.

So why would a horrible singer who needs to read the lyrics try to play him by pretending not to know who Simon Cowell is? Does that seem smart?

Every once in a while though there will be that have can sing and have potential but it a hard search. To the fifteen year old who forgot her line but was then able to pick herself back up; that is talent. The judges liked her voice and her poise as well. That’s why she got all four “Yes”.

To the man that falls into over 25. It’s ok if your note boy band material. When you got a husky voice than of course the women on judging panel will say yes. Especially after you mention a new baby daughter and a wife still in the hospital.

But then for every heart melting moment there is the occasional diva showing some narcissist tendencies. Like someone who cannot be named for legal purposes. She gets on the stage and first thing she does is try to chat up the judges. This isn’t an acting gig. No razzle dazzle can replace actual talent which she does not have. Simon stops her and just as he’s about to give a scathing set down she opens her mouth again to sing.

She believed that if she kept singing every time the judges tried to say no they would magically change their minds. Simon finally had enough and had to go up onstage and walk her off. She’s the first of the season that needed an escort. Does the drama end there? No.
She like many others uses the confessional room backstage to say all 4 talented and proven judges are wrong. They claim they sound great and they go as far to demonstrate that inside of the confessional. The confessional is not soundproof!

Back to talent. A woman who had been pursuing a career in Nashville couldn’t get anywhere once she revealed her age. She explained because Demi had to ask why she’s on the show when she lives in Nashville. Because it didn’t work out. Demi just wanted her to repeat that out loud. Guess what hater she sounded great and was moved on to the next level.

Still not all singers are as humble. The second coming Rico Suave has arrived. The first thing he does tries to act a star and flirt with Demi. In an earlier interview he admitted to doing the whole singing business for the ladies. But once he’s on that stage he does sound good. Now if only his potential can outshine his cloying pheromones.

The ladies all gave him his grudgingly. The only he has was Simon and that was merely male unity. The girls haven’t gone easy on Simon either this season. Kelly’s favorite line to him is to sit down. Pushed to such limits of course he’s going to agree with Rico.
There are some perks to the job though. The judges can run into unexpected talent. They kind of wrote off this teenager from Long Island. She was happy but had a little quirk to her so Simon wasn’t even paying attention when out of nowhere this voice comes from such a small body. The shock on his face is very evident. It’s not surprising he told her she was the best of the night.

Simon gets a moment to test his own vocal chords. After a dismal performance by someone mixing up an opera singer and Elvis, Demi said she thought it would sound like Simon. Kelly goes up on the stage and get the mike just for Simon. He doesn’t take it seriously and imitates the guy they took time off to skewer.

At least there is a recording of his singing voice now.

There is a girl group. A trio that should be familiar to Kelly. They are three sisters and close in age. Their parents think there somewhere else so basically they snuck there. Here is the situation: on their first try only one of the sister sounded great. Simon told them this but allowed for them to have a second chance to attempt as group. In their second song they managed to get their synchronization down pat. It was much better than the original try. They get to move on but Simon does warn/advise which singer should carry the group.

Long Island is turning out to have a lot of potential. This guy that could give Justin Bieber’s cuteness a run for his money is talented. He needs some fine tuning but Simon is willing to give him shot to work it out. The girls in the audience do love him and Simon knows he could a price tag on that.

Potential is what they look for. The talent doesn’t always have to be obvious. Even if you’re a street performer and the voice is going with the chords then Simon will stop the back ground and let an artist show what she has. Like crazy pants had in the beginning – it could be the song selection that removes people from the competition.
