On night two of “The X Factor” boot camp the 60 singers must take on task two – facing each other. The singers were put into pairs where they had to choose an approved song and determine who would sing what part to sing.
The judges gave no critique of their performances to the singers, only asked what they were singing and an occasional question. Judge Simon Cowell described it as, the challenge is simple to be better than your opponent.”
In an hour long show only a portion of the singers were featured. There were some good performance, some not so good performances, several who forgot the words, and bundles of nerves with the pressure getting the better of them.
On Wednesday Cece and Paige found themselves performing the same song. Thursday would be a repeat performance as the two were paired together. Their song they performed was “Secrets” by One Republic but Paige said that she did not want to perform the song.
Next week the 60 singers will be pared down to 24 as the contestants who will be going to the judge’s houses are chosen.
