Local Man Cut From X-Factor 11 Oct 12

A 19-year-old St. Peter man has been eliminated from the FOX television show “The X-Factor.” Gustavus Adolphus College Sophomore Ben Westphal submitted an online audition tape in May and made it to the show’s “Boot Camp” round after successfully auditioning in front of the show’s all-star judges in Kansas City, Missouri. The Boot Camp round began last week in Florida, and Westphal has since been eliminated as the roster of performers is cut from 120 acts to 25.
