On The X Factor 2012 season 2 this evening, viewers will have have the added bonus of watching the debut of will.i.am‘s new video “Scream and Shout” featuring Britney Spears. The song is the first single of the new #willpower album from will.i.am set for release next month.

The X Factor top 8 performance show tonight will also reveal the details for this season’s Pepsi Challenge, which includes the fans getting to participate in the planning of an upcoming show.

2. Tate Stevens (Team L. A.)
3. Vino Alan (Team L. A.)
4. Emblem3 (Team Simon)
5. Diamond White (Team Britney)
6. Paige Thomas (Team Demi)
7. Fifth Harmony (Team Simon)
