After 14-year-old contestant Ashley Deckard left the stage, things on Thursday night's episode of 'X Factor' got a little creepy. Her performance of Jessie J's 'Price Tag' was mediocre at best, and the four judges quickly dismissed her. Over the next several auditions, the cast and crew began hearing unexplainable howls and growls.
Auditions in Miami were already off to a challenging start when 16-year-old Caitlynne Curtis strutted onto the stage during Thursday night's episode of 'X Factor.' The four judges were hopeful that the wide-eyed and spunky teenager would give them the night's first finalist. In the end, even the curmudgeonly Simon Cowell couldn't help but give her words of encouragement.
Former 'American Idol' judges Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell will be reuniting, as the 'Straight Up' singer has officially signed on to act as a judge on the US version of Cowell's singing competition, 'X Factor.' In addition to Abdul, Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and British TV personality Steve Jones will acting as the hosts of the show.
