Rain, rain go away!

The final episode of The X Factor at the judges' homes was supposed to air Wednesday but because of rain delays in Game 3 of baseball's National League Championship Series between St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants, Fox has postponed the reveal of Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid's teams.

Sort of.

On the East Coast, part of the episode aired – and Britney and L.A. were able to name their picks for the teens and the over 25s. (The full episode, Fox said in a press release, will air Tuesday, Oct. 23.) Spoilers ahead!

Britney, who's in charge of the youngest contestants, told her emotional and excited final four – Diamond White, 13, Carly Rose Sonenclar, 13, Arin Ray, 17, and Beatrice Miller, 13 – they would be performing in the live shows, which begin Nov. 1.

And she Tweeted about her tough decision and posted a photo with her official team hashtag, writing, "Awww, look what my boys made for me! Tweet me a pic of u with a #BritneyTeens sign and I'll like my faves!"

Meanwhile, L.A. Reid chose an all-male final four for his team, the over 25s: David Correy, 27, Jason Brock, 35, Tate Stevens, 37, and Vino Alan, 40.

Demi, who's mentoring the young adults (17 - 24), had her at-home segment cut short due to the TV chaos on Wednesday night, but two of her four were also revealed: Jennel Garcia, 18, and Willie Jones, 17. That means we'll have to wait until Tuesday to find out if Jillian Jensen, Nick Youngerman, Paige Thomas and CeCe Frey. The same goes for Simon's groups.
