Simon reclaimed his seat on the judges panel when the X Factor audition tour returned to San Francisco, California. The first act to take the stage was five-guy singing group Citizen, aged 21-25. They had all the girls swooning with their performance of “Don’t Let Go” by En Vogue. LA, Britney, and Demi sang their praises, but Simon said he “didn’t get it” and thought they were outdated. He gave them a “no,” but they moved on anyway with a “yes” from all three of the other judges.
