The X Factor Goes Country! [Video]

When he was on American Idol, Simon Cowell routinely mentioned how much he dislikes country music.  But, the second season of his newest show, The X Factor, is surprisingly loaded up with some fine country music talent.  Here’s a look at three acts poised to make the live shows: Tate Stevens, Willie Jones and Sister C.  WATCH!

That’s Tate Stevens singing at L.A. Reid’s house during the “Judges’ Homes” episode.  There are 5 other acts in the “Over 25″ category and only 4 will advance to the live X Factor shows.

Same thing goes for the “Young Adults” category mentored by Demi Lovato!  Six contestants remain in the running.  Only four can advance.  And I have a hunch that one of them will be Willie Jones from Shreveport, Louisiana.  In this season’s “Boot Camp” show, Willie completely botched the words to Kevin Sharp’s “Nobody Knows.”  But, when he visited Demi’s house to perform his redemption song . . . he did this.  WATCH!

And then there’s Sister C, a country music trio with designs on taking country to the “Groups” category.  But to make the live shows, they’ll have to earn Simon’s vote.  Yep!  He’s the group mentor.  But, last Wednesday, Sister C stepped it up and ripped through an amazing version of Shelby Lynn’s song “Leavin.”  TAKE A LOOK!

The X Factor airs tonight at 7pm CST on Fox!
