The X Factor Talent TV Show
The X Factor UK 2012
It's that time again! That time when all wannabe popstars queue for hours to audition for the X Factor 2012.
What a series the X Factor has been so far. Auditions came and went with huge speculation about who the final line up of XFactor judges will be. The 4th judge for UK X Factor was eventually confirmed as Pussy Cat Doll and ex- X Factor USA judge, Nicole Scherzinger. She has been paid a reported Â£750,000 for the honour, and let's face it, for that much, I would do it!
Rumours have gone round that it would be guest Judge Geri Halliwell, or that Cheryl Cole would return to a judge for the X Factor once again...and ah-ha...as we have seen from Judges houses...Cheryl Cole HAS made a return, but only as a guest mentor Judge to help her pal, Gary awww.
So, now we're at Judges Houses after a very exciting and dramatic Boot Camp, which started off with a third getting culled, before they had even sung a note!
Drama at Judges houses followed, when one of the groups who had been sent through, couldn't go due to visa problems...so we ROUGH COPY out of the picture, the door was opened for UNION J (formerly Triple J) and TIMES RED to go through instead - meaning that THE GROUPS now have 7 in their category...DRAAAAMA!
So, for any fan of the X Factor, this page is for you. Enjoy.

My FAVOURITE X Factor Audition...Carolynne is back!!
I was so excited to see Carolyn Poole is back! She was the final audition shown - and what a way to end the auditions! You may or may not know, but she got to judges houses last year, but didn't get through...but now she's back and better than ever! Go Carolynne!
Here are some of XFactor 2012's most memorable auditions!

Who is in Louis's Category for X Factor 2012?

Who is in Tulisa's Category for X Factor 2012?
It was a shocker last year, when Tulisa was given the groups - Louis ALWAYS get the groups - it worked though, because she won! Tulisa took girl group Little Mix to victory!
But for 2012, Tulisa's category is THE GIRLS - and she seemed utterly delighted with her category too!
Joining her as a guest judge, is the ever-so talented rapper, rnb all rounder, Tinie Temper! Tulisa's category at Judges Houses is made up of:
Who is in Nicole's Category for X Factor 2012?
As predicted, and undoubtably, there were tears...she cried A LOT last year, in the US version of the show. My money was on her getting the under's girl category, but close, she got THE BOYS.
Nicole will be choosing from the following at Judges Houses this week, with guest mentor, Ne-yo:
Who from X Factor will be sent through to LIVE shows???????
