"There were contestants along the way that we wished that we'd kept," said L.A. Reid. "I wish we could have kept Jasmine Little. I didn't like losing Phillip Lomax, that didn't feel great. But yes, we're in good shape."
L.A. Reid will take on the task of mentoring the boys: Astro (15), Marcus Canty (20), Chris Rene (28), while Simon Cowell will oversee the girls: Melanie Amaro (19), Rachel Crow (13), Drew (14).
