Sep 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Last night’s episode of ‘The X Factor’ was filmed in Newark, New Jersey, where thousand of people lines up to have a chance at the huge five million dollar prize, a contract with Sony. Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and LA Reid were there to judge each contestant. Anyone ages twelve and up was welcome to compete, whether a group or solo act.

Seventeen year old Cari Fletcher impressed the judges with her rendition of ‘Alone’ by ‘Heart’. LA Reid felt she was a star, Paula, and Nicole both liked her as well. Simon was a little more skeptical, but they all gave her a yes vote.

Austin and Emily make up the two person group known as “Ausem.” These fifteen year olds brought their own cheering section. Emily says that they love singing together, and feeling the passion and how it effects the audience. Simon felt that the audience that they were aiming at would understand them, and said yes.

LA feels that Austin is a star, but was not convinced of the duet. He said yes. Nicole agreed that Austin had a pretty good voice, although she also did not like the duet so much. Simon got angry because Nicole would not make a decision, and the entire audience began to cheer for Ausem. Under pressure, she gave them a yes, and so did Paula.
