X FACTOR RECAP: Boot Camp, Day 2!

The X-Factor is back with day two of boot camp. Whether you missed the show or just want to re-live the drama, read on for a full recap of tonight's episode!

Tonight, the contestants are divided into pairs to sing the same song as a direct comparison to one another. Simon, who's wearing a shirt with a v-neck that's practically not a shirt at all, says that the contestants better "forget about friendships" even though it seems like everybody's pretty much got that under control already.

First to hit the stage are overwhelming voice teacher Tara Simon and 18-year-old Jannel Garcia, singing "Landslide." I've made no secret of the fact that Tara gets on my nerves, but seriously, she adds in all these weird runs and completely steamrolls over poor Jannel. "I feel really bad for you, Jannel," Simon says.

Next up are Beatrice Miller and Carly Rose Sonenclar, both 13, on Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks." I have to admit I'm pretty biased on this one - Sonenclar totally stole the show in Frank Wildhorn's short-lived Wonderland on Broadway, so I'm definitely rooting for her - but both girls sound really amazing for their age.

The next pair is another 13-year-old wunderkind, Diamond White, and 16-year-old Dinah Jane Hansen. They chose a really mellow version of Kelly Clarkson's "What Doesn't Kill You." I mean, like, one-note-a-minute mellow. Diamond rises to the occasion, but Dinah falls kind of flat.

After a totally unscheduled Pepsi delivery, country crooners Willie Jones, 17, and Tate Stevens, 37, face off on Babyface's "Nobody Knows It But Me," and Willie loses the lyrics. He kind of makes up his own after a horribly awkward few seconds of just music, but ultimately he can't really get it back together. I liked Willie, and I feel badly for him, but he doesn't really deserve to stay after that performance.
