The X Factor USA 2012 was scheduled to resume on October 17, but plans went awry when a Major League Baseball rain delay led to a serious programming gaffe. But show fans, take heart, because teens group mentor Britney Spears took to Twitter to share the identities of the four contestants she’s chosen to sing during the live shows. Is the bubbly Diamond White in the mix?
She is! The 13-year-old future star, who shares a small Los Angeles apartment–and a bed–with her mom, was the first to be named to the top four. Britney tweeted the news to followers: “I do see something in miss <s>@</s>DiamondkWhite! She’s going to kill it on the show, don’t u think?”
And Diamond expressed appreciation to her supportive fans by tweeting a message of her own during the show, which read “Omg thank you to all the people on the east coast!!! Love you so much!! Can’t wait till 8 in Cali!!”
Does Diamond White, who’s knocked the judges’ socks off with a beyond-her-years mature set of pipes, have what it takes to win America’s collective heart? Watch The X Factor USA 2012 as the live shows begin in early November and find out.
