'X Factor' Ups the Ante With Guest Judges Rihanna, Enrique, Pharrell
'X Factor' Ups the Ante With Guest Judges Rihanna, Enrique, Pharrell

After the fourth American League Championship baseball game was delayed because of rain -- running into the "X Factor" time slot -- the first "Judges' Homes" episode finally aired last night. The 32 remaining contestants traveled across the world, where they met with the judge mentoring their group as well as special guest judges.

The girls met their mentor, Simon, whose surprise guest, Mariah Carey, was stuck in New York during Hurricane Irene and unable to make it to Simon's house in France. The always self-assured judge said that it would be fine, as he could (surprise, surprise) be both judge and celebrity mentor.
