Brace yourselves for sobbing pretty things, so many forgotten lyrics and Simon Cowell’s raw, sneering disdain. Yes folks, The X Factor heads to Miami for Season 2 Boot Camp this Wednesday (8/7c on Fox).
In case you’re having a hard time separating the 40-plus contestants shown surviving the auditions, I’ve counted down the 15 best — with handy links to each of their tryouts.
So click through the photo gallery below, then hit the comments to tell me who I’ve egregiously snubbed, who I’ve regrettably overrated, and which rankings I got exactly right.
