Last week on The X Factor 2012, we got a taste of the live shows, but tonight, it’s the real deal. That means that it’s time for America to start voting and leaving the judges to bicker amongst themselves and cut on each others’ contestants.

Tonight Simon, LA, Britney and Demi will watch as their acts, take the live stage for the first time as the Top 12. We can surely expect more outrageous outfits, dancers, production and interesting song choices. Let’s just hope the focus is at least a little more on singing after that weird Top 20 show last week.

HOW TO VOTE: Immediately after the performance show, fans will be able to vote via 1)Verizon Touch Voting on The Xtra Factor App on Verizon Android devices; 2) toll-free calling; 3) text messaging for Verizon Wirelesscustomers; and 4) online at Fans with valid Facebook accounts can also vote at
