Season 2 of The X Factor has been a pleasant surprise, meaning, yes, it's far different than Season 1. I love both new judges, Demi Lovato and Britney Spears clearly came to play; they both did their homework and have proven themselves not only competent, but intelligent. As for the talent, it's been wonderful; there are so many unique performers who have such special qualities about them. After several weeks of auditions, the field was narrowed down to 24, and the contestants were separated into four categories and sent to the home of the judge who would mentor their respective category.
The categories were: Teens mentored by Britney Spears, Young Adults mentored by Demi Lovato, Over 25s mentored by L.A. Reid, and Groups mentored by Simon Cowell.
