X Factor 2013: Who Are the Top 40 Contestants?

What a dramatic episode of The X Factor 2013 on September 26! Although honestly, we were ready for auditions to be over and things to move on, we were so thrilled to watch that happen when the show closed out with some big announcements.

First, we found out for sure (although we had a ton of help from MJs Big Blog before it became official) who the top acts are making it into the next round, and second, we confirmed which mentors would be taking care of which acts. Do you agree with the choices? Here’s who’s playing in the big leagues when things get to the next phase:
