Oh boy… Simon Cowell MUST have been shizzing himself last night!
Looks like the MLB National League Championship Series have messed with Wednesday night’s TV lineup… leaving audiences confused and fuming!!
X Factor fans tuned into the show last night at 8pm, expecting to find out if their favorites made it through to the live shows round.
However, what east coast viewers got instead was PART of the ep — which started late — and The Mindy Project!
West coast XF fans ended up just seeing a rerun of last week’s episode, while east coasters spoiled Britney, L.A. and part of Demi’s eliminations all over Twitter and Facebook!
Not only that, but it seems even the west coast experienced a technical difficulty, once an east coast feed of the show started playing BEFORE 8pm!
So just what happened?!
Reportedly, a two-hour rain delay for the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants was to blame, which FOX says was “expected to last well beyond primetime.”
Well, someone must’ve left Simon out of that email chain, because he had NO idea the schedule screw-up was going to take place, calling it a “total f up” on his Twitter!
Wow… sounds like yesterday might’ve turned out to be someone’s last day working at the network!!
The actual episode that was supposed to air last night — revealing the top 16 — will now air on Tuesday at 8pm!
Though, if you can’t wait until then and want to spoil the finalists that both were and were not shown last night, check them out… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Britney’s Teens category: Diamond White, Carly Rose Sonenclar, Arin Ray and Beatrice Miller
L.A. Reid’s Over 25s category: David Correy, Jason Brock, Tate Stevens and Vino Alan
Demi’s Young Adults category: Jennel Garcia and Willie Jones were the only ones that aired, yet CeCe Frey is said to also have made it through, along with Paige Thomas! Seems early frontrunner, Jillian Jensen did not.
Simon’s Groups category: Also yet to air, though the following are said to have made it through — Emblem3, Playback, LYLAS and Lyric 145.
