X Factor, The Day After: Judges’ Houses Pt. 2 Dish

Last night, the rest of the top 32 "X Factor" contestants gave their poolside patio performances at the Judges' Houses, and among those contestants were some of this season's biggest frontrunners, like Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro, Jazzlyn Little, Marcus Canty, Tiah Tolliver, and Josh Krajcik. Simon, Nicole, L.A., and Paula sure are going to have their work cut out for them when they each pick their final four on Tuesday.

Which brings me and my colleague Matt Whitfield to the burning, elephant-in-the-room question: Why does Paula get to choose ANYONE??? It's clear than none of her groups are as worthy of a place in the top 16 as many, or ANY, of the solo acts in the girls, boys, and under-30's categories. And this seems horribly unfair. Quotas suck.

Watch Matt and I kvetch about that, and discuss our top 16 picks and predictions, in our latest "Day After" chat above...and feel free to post your own opinions on the message board below!
