LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The teenager who bragged she was a combination of Carrie Underwood and Adele failed to impress the judges on "The X Factor." Simon Cowell told her she sang like she was dying. The judges were impressed by an 18-year-old woman who auditioned with the Grace Potter song "Paris." They also liked a young woman who had said she was bullied and poured out her pain into music. They even were pleasantly surprised by the man dressed as a bride. Knowing Britney Spears personally did not seem to help, though. Spears and the judges rejected her former duet partner.
