X Factor Final ‘Boys’ Contestants Picked After Third Four-Chair Challenge


By Shari Weiss


It was Paulina Rubio and the Boys’ turn to face the “four-chair challenge” on Wednesday’s “X Factor.”

Like Kelly Rowland and the Over 25s and Demi Lovato and the Girls last week, the judge watched all ten of her acts perform, and had to decide which four to bring to the upcoming live shows.

But even after Rubio filled all her spots, she had the option to change her mind and make swaps, breaking hearts and crushing dreams along the way.

In fact, the new mentor cut one contestant, and then — in a first for the show — brought him back minutes later, forcing her to send someone else home.


Rubio’s final four contestants for the upcoming live shows are: Tourettes sufferer Carlos Guevara, Carlito Olivero, Josh Levi, and Tim Olstad, whose initial ouster caused an uproar from the panel and the crowd.

Among those shockingly eliminated was 14-year-old Stone Martin.

Check out the FULL LIST below.
