Phillip Lomax, 'The X Factor'After getting bumped back a day thanks to a rain-delayed ALCS game, 'The X Factor' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) kicked off the 'Judges' Houses' round of the competition, featuring the final 32 competitors. And to whet our appetites for what's to come, we're being treated to full performances from each of them as they sing for their spots in the Top 16.

L.A. Reid, who's mentoring the Boys category, brought in Rihanna to help him make the tough decision of which four boys to send home. But he made the challenge even harder for Phillip Lomax by tasking him to sing a Rihanna song in front of the woman herself.

Lomax, with his Rat Pack throwback style, was clearly out of his usual comfort zone, but he embraced the madness of it by opening in his chosen genre before breaking out a more traditional vocal for 'Don't Stop the Music.' It was an interesting take, but did it work?

Check out our full recap, including clips of our favorite performances of the night, right here. Did Phillip make our cut?

EEEk he hacked that song up. X factor has some really really bad talent on the show with all the time they had to recruit they picked a ton of bad.

Rai Shanker

The traits of a child get clear during the childhood. Rai Shanker stands a testimony to it. He learnt cooking from his mother when he could just manage to reach the kitchen slab. Cooking has always appealed him. But only after he received his formal training from Red Carpet Hotel and Culinary Academy in Pune, his art gained a fame all over the world. Chef feels grateful to his mother who laid the foundation of his success!
