The X Factor Season 3 Live Shows Begin

The X Factor USA live shows begin tomorrow at 8 P.M. New York time. The X Factor USA will also air on the night after tomorrow unless there is a World Series baseball game on that night.

The producers' auditions began on March 6, 2013, in Los Angeles, California, and ended on May 4, 2013, in Denver, Colorado. The judges' auditions, which are televised, began on May 21, 2013, in Charleston, South Carolina, and ended on July 12, 2013, in Los Angeles, California. This season, the bootcamp and judges' homes rounds were kaput, being replaced with the four-chair round, reminiscent of the live shows.

The competition is divided into four categories: the Boys (mentored by Paulina Rubio), the Girls (mentored by Demi Lovato), the Over 25s (mentored by Kelly Rowland), and the Groups (mentored by Simon Cowell).

Boys (Paulina Rubio): Carlos Guevava, Josh Levi, Carlito Olivero, and Tim Olstad
Girls (Demi Lovato): Khaya Cohen, Danie Geimer, Rion Paige, and Ellona Santiago
Over 25s (Kelly Rowland): Jeff Gutt, James Kenney, Lillie McCloud, and Rachel Potter
Groups: Alex & Sierra, Restless Road, RoXxy Montana, and Sweet Suspense

Tomorrow night, the top 16 will be narrowed down to either a top 12 (or top 13 if there is going to be a wildcard).

My predictions on who will eliminated in the top 16 round are:

Boys: Carlos Guevava
Girls: Khaya Cohen
Over 25s: James Kenney
Groups: Alex & Sierra

My rankings of the top 16 are:

Ellona Santiago
RoXxy Montana
Josh Levi
Sweet Suspense
Carlito Olivero
Lillie McCloud
Carlos Guevava
Alex & Sierra
Rachel Potter
Tim Olstad
Restless Road
Danie Geimer
Khaya Cohen
Rion Paige
James Kenney
Jeff Gutt
