This week on X Factor 2012, the Top 8 will be taking on #1 hits! That means the songs can all be from this year or from 25 years ago. That’s a broad spectrum. But since they’re all #1 hits, there’s a good chance they’ll be good songs. Unless someone does some terrible one-hit wonder. Ha.

Normally at this time, I’d be sharing with you some of the Top 8 teasing their song choices. But since Fox LOVES to make me crazy and not remain consistent on anything, we don’t have that information this week. So if it comes up before Wednesday night’s show we’ll share. But in the meantime, all we know is the theme and the non-competiton performance going on that night:

This week on THE X FACTOR, the Top 8 will perform songs that hit Number One on the charts on WED NOV 28 at 8/7c on FOX. This week’s performance show will also feature the debut of the new music video of “Scream and Shout” by and our very own Britney Spears! — Fox
