X Factor Season 3: Ratings Lower Than a Rerun of The Big Bang Theory

Unfortunately for the cast over at The X Factor, the show’s third season didn’t start off with a bang. New numbers from the second night of auditions, which aired from 8 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, show no improvement over the Season 3 premiere episode on Wednesday, September 11. TV By The Numbers reports that viewer ratings remained flat during both show days with 2.2. adults in the ages 18 to 49 category. That’s a significant drop from last year’s Thursday premiere show, which... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/4surDPy9PR0/2013-09-13-season-3-premiere-ratings-low

[Videos] 'The X Factor' Denver/Long Island Auditions: The One Singer to Watch

Did anyone manage to top the extraordinary talent we saw during the X Factor season 3 premiere on Wednesday night? Considering how loaded the hour was with strong singers, night two was most likely always going to be a letdown.   And while there were no Lillie McCloud's in sight at the Denver and Long Island auditions, there is one singer whose voice I'm still thinking about and want to hear again, like, now. But before we get to her, what about the other contestants who tried out? //www.buddytv.com/articles/the-x-factor/videos-the-x-factor-denverlong-51184.aspx

'X Factor': Simon Cowell Sings

The singing competition show may have found its best hope yet for the over-25s in the form of the judge, who showed the world what he's got.            //feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/NsytktQQmK0/story01.htm

X Factor 2013 Audition: Watch Rylie Brown Sing Zedd's "Clarity" (VIDEO)

On the September 12 episode of X Factor 2013, Rylie Brown blew judges away with her performance of Zedd's chart-topping single "Clarity." Clad in an orange high-lo skirt and a denim vest, we had a feeling the 15-year-old might find a fan in Demi Lovato— considering their similar appearances. While it wasn't her look that caught the judges' eyes, per se, she certainly turned heads. The Missouri-resident brought her family for support, but lost her nerve and forgot the words to the song, even... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Uy3Ct0WBe9I/2013-09-12-audition-rylie-brown-clarity-zedd

X Factor 2013 Audition: Watch Rachel Potter Perform Queen's "Somebody to Love" (VIDEO)

On the September 12 episode of X Factor 2013, 29-year-old Rachel Potter took the stage and blew us away. The Florida native currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee and works as a bartender. When Simon Cowellasked her why she's doing that, she explained that she's always had a dream to be a country star. With her polished look and calm demeanor, we didn't expect her to give such a powerful rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love." For some reason, she seems to think that she's a little old to... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/BlexgmRdNf4/2013-09-12-rachel-potter-queen-audition-somebody-to-love

X Factor 2013 Audition: Watch Denise Weeks Sing "The Greatest Love of All" (VIDEO)

Where have you been all our lives, Denise Weeks? Well, apparently the subway. This 41-year-old sings for her supper while busy New Yorkers make their commute. We’re quite certain if she were ever in the same car with us, we’d take notice. Denise gave us full-body chills with her soulful, rendition of Whitney Houston’s “The Greatest Love of All.” She also impressed the judges, but not before Simon Cowell instructed her to sing without the track. “You’re rushing,” Simon said as he interrupted... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/b7X50EGnPSI/2013-09-12-denise-weeks-greatest-love-all

X Factor 2013 Audition: Watch RoXxy Montana Sing "One Night Only" (VIDEO)

We fell in love immediately with the three sisters of RoXxy Montana, a girl group out of Detroit, Michigan, whose audition was a little touch and go. But though their performance of Jennifer Hudson's "One Night Only" started well, Simon was critical of the overlap of the sisters' voices and stopped the song. "Temperance," he said to the 20-year-old, "for me, your voice is so much better than the other two." Yikes. The audience didn't like that, but Kelly Rowlandasked them to sing something a... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/w7W5qlszpX4/2013-09-12-roxxy-montana-audition-week-1

X Factor 2013 Audition: Watch Simone Torres Sing Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" (VIDEO)

Simone Torres may look sweet, showing up to the X Factor 2013auditions in a purple tee shirt, white pants, and a big smile. But something about her surprisingly deep, rich voice and sexy dance moves make us think she could have a long career ahead of her. The 19-year-old student from Long Island, NY took on Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" with aplomb. Body rolls and vocal runs made Simon Cowellexclaim "WOW!" in the middle of her song, while Kelly Rowlandand Demi Lovatocouldn't help nodding... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/VvZhK-do4qY/2013-09-12-simone-torres-mustang-sally-audition

X Factor 2013 Audition: Jeff Brinkman Sings "You Are So Beautiful" (VIDEO)

Jeff Brinkman already has the greatest job in the world (you run a doggy day care dude? SIGN US UP), but he has aspirations of someday supporting his family with music. And since that family just grew a little bigger — like his wife was in the hospital with their baby during his audition — he’ll need an X factor to do it. Luckily, he’s a pretty awesome singer. Performing Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful,” Jeff impressed the judges with his gravely voice. Want to know if he continues to... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Ju0EiDrh4Lg/2013-09-12-auditions-jeff-brinkman-so-beautiful

X Factor 2013: Watch All Auditions — Week 1, Day 2

If we could just curl up all the X Factor 2013 contestants in our little music box, we totally would. Well, except for some of them — you know who we are. And while we’re certainly looking forward to the Live Shows starting up soon, the summer auditions are a great way for us to get to know the contestants that Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, Paulina Rubio, and Kelly Rowland will be mentoring as we get into the meat of things. Check back here for all the performances from the September 12 episode... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Fjrt3QHFPMU/2013-09-12-watch-auditions-week1-day-2
