If you watch the X-Factor (like me) you were completely confused last night as you waited to finally hear the results as to who were the final 16 contestants that would make it to the live shows. Last week was a cliffhanger and last night was a debacle and Executive Producer Simon Cowell wasn’t happy about it. Have no fear…we have most of the results for you below, thanks to our friends in Canada, who did not have the same “difficulties” we did. The results show will now air on Tuesday night at 7pm. If you’re wondering what the heck happened, read this explanation via Yahoo!
So at 8pm on Wednesday, confused fans tuned in and saw a rerun of “Ben & Kate,” not “The X Factor” as advertised–because Fox’s telecast of the NCLS baseball game had been stopped at the bottom of the seventh inning due to rain, and the network was therefore in a holding pattern. But then, at about 8:40pm, “The X Factor” finally did begin, and the crisis seemed averted. Britney Spears announced her final four team members, followed by L.A. Reid’s picks for the Over-25’s, and then Demi Lovato began making her choices for the Young Adults. And then there was a commercial break, preceded by a teaser showing fan favorite Jillian Jensen, who had yet to learn her fate, sobbing uncontrollably. It was hard to tell if Jillian was crying out of joy or sorrow, and so viewers waited with baited breath to learn what had become of Jillian and the rest of Demi’s contestants.
And then Fox came back from the break and started airing “The Mindy Project,” with no explanation. And then Fox switched back to the baseball game. And then came the announcement that the rest of the “X Factor” episode would not be shown, and that the full episode would instead air NEXT Tuesday.
“IS THIS A JOKE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! It won’t be aired until next tuesday!??!!?!??!!? IS THIS A GOD DAMN JOKE?!?!?!?!” tweeted Jillian when this all went down, voicing the shocked sentiments of her many equally irate fans. Jillian’s teammate Paige Thomas, whose segment also had yet to be shown, also tweeted: “WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW!!! SOMEONE HELP ME B4 I PASS OUT FROM ANXIETY AND BUILT UP ANTICIPATION!! WHERE IS THE SHOW? Ok seriously is this a joke? What is going on? Am I being punk’d? My stomach is literally in a knot!”
But Simon Cowell worded it best on his own Twitter:
“Have no idea what is happening to the schedule tonight. Have heard the whole episode will be shown next Tuesday. Sorry. It what’s known as a total f up.”
