Great news, "X Factor" fans. Thursday night was the last night of auditions. (Woot! Woot!). Now we can finally move on to the boot camp portion of our show next and get this party started.
There was good news on the health front, as well. Turns out 13-year-old Trevor Moran, last seen being tended to by paramedics at the Oracle Arena, is just fine. A little dehydration is all it was.
Little Trevor gets back on his feet and totally hams it up during an energetic cover of "Sexy and I Know It." Simon Cowell points out that it's not exactly age appropriate, but the Oakland crowd goes wild and the judges push him through.
"You were so much fun to watch," Demi Lovato tells him.
Another adorable teen tonight is Owen Stuart, 16, who is so totally missing his girlfriend, Tori, back in New York that it hurts. Her dedicates "Airplanes" to her and while it doesn't wow Britney, the other judges put him through.
In 2009, Freddie Combs weighed 920 pounds and almost died. Now, the 41-year-old is down almost 400 pounds.
"I hope the judges look past my exterior and give a fat boy a chance," he says before taking the stage in a wheelchair and dedicating a lovely version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" to his wife.
L.A. Reid calls his voice "heavenly," and the other judges agree. Simon challenges him to get to the point someday where he can perform standing up and makes a deal with Freddie: "I'll back you if you back
A Little Britney from Brentwood
Jordyn Foley, a giggly 12-year-old from Brentwood, bounces onto the stage with pigtails, knee socks, short skirt, tie and silver sparkles. Hmmm, who does she remind us of? Simon points out that she looks like a young Britney from her "Hit Me Baby One More Time" era. Yes!
Jordyn, who participated in our "Readers Got Talent" contest a couple of years ago, goes theatrical and sings "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie" -- a song Simon absolutely despises. And true to form, the grouch gives her a "no." Still, Jordyn's personality and stage presence win over the other three judges, who put her through.
"It meant the world to me," she says tearfully. "It's the best thing ever!"
Tops of the night
Impressing us most tonight is Lauren Jauregui, 16 (Yet another teen). She performs Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" and hits it out of the park with a voice that is rich, husky and soulful. Everyone loves her.
Simon gives Lauren and calls it one of his favorite auditions. Britney says, "You were unbelievable. You were so, so good."
See you in Miami.
