I have no clue how this is going to work. FOX has scheduled Tuesday (October 29) night's special "X Factor" for a hair over two hours and, in that time, the show has to make it through four Boys, four Girls, four Geriatrics and four Groups, plus commentary from four judges/mentors for all 16 acts, presumably.
It's also possible that we'll be sending four acts home tonight, though I can't begin to imagine where the time is for all of that.
Since this is the start of the live performances and since it's not like there's a World Series game to watch, I might as well live-blog, so follow along at home!
And as always, feel free to e-mail us questions for the podcast.
