Update: MJs Big Blog posted some new speculations today, 10/17/12 via a combo of insight from The Examiner and Digital Spy via Jork — and they seem to be in line with our choices. What do you think? 

The X Factor 2012 the contestants run the gamut from sweet and talented 13-year-olds (like Carly Rose Sonenclar) to... the Anti-Christ. It's hard not to get attached to every contestant who walks onstage (save for Kaci Newton), so we did some digging to figure out exactly who we can bet on this season. Here’s the list of who makes it through to the mentoring round, thanks to Vote for the Worst blog.

Ages 12-16 (Britney's babies)
Arin Ray
Beatrice Miller
Carly Rose Sonenclar
Diamond White

17-24 year olds (Demi's brood)
Cece Frey
Jennel Garcia
Paige Thomas
Willie Jones

25+ Solo singers (L.A. Reid’s crew)
Jason Brock
David Correy
Tate Stevens
Vino Alan

Groups (Simon’s specials)
Emblem3
Lyric 145 (One4FiveLyric Da Queen)
LYLAS 
Sister C

Just a note: we previously had Lyric in the 17-24 year old solo group. But since she is now part of a group, we're assuming that she's made it through with her group Lyric 145. We will continue to amend this list as we get more info.
