The X Factor Talent TV Show

Updated on December 6, 2012

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 £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 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 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!

But for 2012, Tulisa's category is THE GIRLS - and she seemed utterly delighted with her category too!
