Fox All Access
got access to the X Factor USA
Top 17 contestants yesterday, in what looks like their dress rehearsal digs for tonight's first live show
, and asked the acts some of the pressing questions we've been wondering about them. For instance: What keeps LeRoy Bell looking so young
? Who is Drew Ryniewicz's celebrity crush
? (And will I ever learn to spell her last name correctly on the first try?) How many languages does Phillip Lomax speak? And what's in Josh Krajcik's "musical burrito"?
Even if you weren't wondering before, I bet you're wondering now!
Below, check out five highlights from the set of short but sweet interviews (and go to Fox All Access
to watch all of them
): Phillip Lomax is an International Man of Mystery:
Guess how many different countries Phillip Lomax has lived in. Guess! No wonder he has such a cosmopolitan air about him.Josh Krajcik and His Musical Burrito:
Josh shares his culinary favorites, both real and imaginary. This Isn't Simone Battle's First Time in Front of a Huge Audience:
Check out which huge music group she toured with as a backup dancer. Astro Talks Confidence Vs. Cockiness:

Did you know his grandfather wrote the song "Rockin' Robin"? Well you do now! What a doll.
