Reid was given the Boys category, with Brennin Hunt, Brian Bradley, Skyelor Anderson, Nick Voss, Tim Cifers, Phillip Lomax, Marcus Canty and Chris Rene all hoping to impress the record mogul and make it through to the next round.

Meanwhile, fellow judge Simon Cowell will take on the Girls, consisting of Caitlin Koch, Tora Woloshin, Simone Battle, Drew Ryniewicz, Rachel Crow, Jazzlyn Little, Melanie Amaro and Tiah Tolliver.
