The Brewer Boys booted out from 'X Factor'


Filipino-American brothers, Nathan, 14, and Justin, 17, better known as The Brewer Boys, were eliminated from “The X Factor” reality show Tuesday night [US Time].
Despite performing the George Michael original “Faith,” it proved to be insufficient to push the brothers into the next round. The duo was one of the five acts booted from the reality show, which included Phillip Lomax, Dexter Haygood, Simone Battle, and Tiah Tolliver.
The competition began with the contestants being divided into groups to be mentored by the four judges: Girls go to Simon Cowell, Groups to Paula Abdul, Over 30s to Nicole Scherzinger and Boys to L.A. Reid.
Recall that The Brewer Boys, who play “bluegrass-inspired,” (a sub-genre of country music mixed with a little jazz) pop music, were paired up with mentor Abdul. She was responsible for selecting a medley of Hall & Oates “Rich Girl” and “Faith” for the duo to perform on the first live performance episode of the show.
In the end, it wasn’t good enough to advance the brothers on the show.
“We feel good. We just want to thank the judges. Thank you so much, Miss Paula, for everything. We've learned a lot,” Justin said on the show after finding out the duo’s fate.
“Thank you so much for this opportunity, I'm sorry we didn't live up to your expectations,” Nathan added.
“Listen to me. You surpassed my expectations, Nathan,” Abdul responded.
Despite the elimination, Abdul had words of encouragement for the pair.
“I love you guys. You're going to go on and magic is going to happen,” she told them.
Justin and Nathan hail from Temecula City in California’s Riverside County. According to a tweet on their official Twitter account posted Oct. 15, their mother hails from Manila while their grandfather hails from Cebu.
In the show, L.A. said that mentor Paula was seemingly a “little out of her comfort zone,” because the rest of the contestants were either into pop or R&B.
Meanwhile, Simon noted that the boys “have improved” but reminded everybody that what’s at stake is a multi-million-dollar contract.
The brothers’ elimination, along with the others, left the judges with 12 more contestants vying for the $5 million recording contract.
