The auditions roll into Providence, RI tonight and the judges are all acting like divas.  Britney's manager wants to mess with the judges assistant and sends him off to find a straw hat for Ms Spears while Simon arrives with a police escort while riding a motorized bicycle.

Adonis and John are employer and employee who are singing Lionel Richie's Hello.  It's terrible and the audience let them know with booing while Britney laughs.  LA tells them that at least they have day jobs.  They're out.

Pretty much like the next 10 minutes of no after no after no.  At the first ad break, the judges are wondering if they should have come here at all.

Submitted by The Critic on Thu, 2012-09-20 18:32

The fourth episode of X Factor auditions takes us to Greensboro tonight.

First up tonight is the African American version of Scotty McCreery.  Willie Jones is a 17 year old with a look that says he's all about hip hop when in fact, he sings country - "Your Man".  Another four very enthusiastic yeses from the judges send him through to bootcamp.

It's goodbye to her band and hello to a solo career for the unique sounding vocals of 18 year old Julia Bullock.  She sings Pumped Up Kicks and all the judges think she's a star.  We'll be seeing more of her.

Krysten Colon finally has the confidence to bring us what she hears in the shower.  She sings "Don't You Remember" but Simon hates Adele.  He asks her to go away and come back with a classic song as he thinks she is worth taking a risk on.
