Reid were also told which of the acts they’ll be working with as the show progresses to the next phase of the competition.

L.A. Reid is set to mentor the guys, while Simon Cowell has the girls. Meanwhile, Nicole Scherzinger is working with the over-30’s, while Paula Abdul has been tasked to work with the group acts.
