X Factor History[]

Sister C auditioned in Austin, Texas, impressing the judges with their country-flavored vocals and strong harmonies. They got 4 yeses and advanced to boot camp

They passed tasks 1 and 2 at boot camp despite judge Britney Spears referring to them as "annoying". They made it to Judges' Homes as a part of the Groups category with Simon Cowell as their mentor

They performed "Leavin´" by Shelby Lynne for him and his guest advisor, Latin music superstar Marc Anthony, and moved on to the live shows, where they performed their audition song, "Hell on Heels" by Pistol Annies, only this time changing the arrangement just a bit. However, Simon Cowell eliminated Sister C on November 1, 2012.
