As featured on Fox that day, the X Factor USA top 32 contestants were chosen from the 100 acts and are now a step closer to the $5-million dollar recording contract.

For the X Factor recap, the remaining 100 contestants were split into random groups on Wednesday night and each group were allowed to practice a song and performed them in front of the judges.

Later, they were trimmed down to 64 contestants were divided into 8 groups and were given a list of 35 songs. Each group selected a song and performed it in front of 3,000 people, with only 15 hours to practice.

Afterward, the X Factor judges including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid, and Nicole Scherzinger discussed, debated with each other, and compromised, until they reached to the final 32 contestants.

The 32 finalists were again divided this time into 4 groups, according to gender, age, and groups, with each of them will be mentoring by each of the four judges. Below is the complete list of their names.

The Girls: Caitlin Koch, Tora Woloshin, Simone Battle, Drew Ryniewicz, Rachel Crow, Jazzlyn Little, Melanie Amaro and Tiah Tolliver.

Groups: the Stereo Hogzz, 2squared, 4Shore, The Brewer Boys, Illusion Confusion, The Anser and two groups composed out of the soloists who were earlier rejected.
