Bad train wreck! At least five of these 10 wriggling youths are unnecessary.

The rising stand-up comedian, 13, is all shtick and no song. If she actually had a decent singing voice, I might love her.

The recovering drug addict sounded off-key and nervous on last week's ''Love Don't Live Here Anymore.'' It's hard to see his backstory keeping him around much longer.

Amazing voice, but I worry that her clash with Simon over her career goals (he thinks she's a church singer; she wants to be a pop star) might confuse voters. But if they like the Muppets and she wears that jacket again, all bets are off.

If they can keep their performances as varied as last week's ''Try a Little Tenderness,'' they could go pretty far.

Good train wreck? Here are four hot girls, one of whom appears to be birthing the sun. Win-win.

He connects well with an audience, isn't afraid to dance or wear denim-colored leather, and Simon likes him. Four yeses!

Last week's rendition of Bob Dylan's ''Forever Young'' was understated yet full of feeling, and this burrito slinger is highly relatable. ''You are the artist I fear,'' overstated Simon.

Last names are for losers. The slow and steady 14-year-old balladeer will forget she ever had one.

Simon's last-minute save held her own on a Whitney Houston song during the first live show — but has she peaked too soon?

His vocal on last week's ''Nobody Knows'' was strong and simple, even if he seemed a bit nervous. Women love him. He's also freaking 60. Impossible! No way that's true!

''This delightful man Astro'' (quoth X Factor host Steve Jones) will make ya jump! jump! Uh-huh. He's really annoying, but if teenagers are the ones voting for this thing, I think he'll win.
