On this weekend’s The X Factor on ITV1, Gary will be Lord of the Manor at a stately home in the rolling English countryside to meet the Overs; Nicole is at a luxury resort in Dubai with the Boys; Tulisa is on the Caribbean island of St Lucia to greet the Girls; while Louis is in the city that dubs itself the ‘entertainment capital of the world’ – Las Vegas with the Groups.
The mentors each have a very special guest to help them make their decisions – Cheryl Cole joins Gary, American RnB artist Ne-yo is with Nicole; Brit award winner Tinie Tempah is in St Lucia with Tulisa; and Sharon Osbourne joins her pal Louis in Vegas.
The contestants sing with a live piano or a guitarist in a bid to secure their place in the Live Shows – and not only do they need to impress their mentor, they have to blow their special guest away too. The Judges will each pick three acts to take through to the Live Shows.
Overs: Melanie Masson, Carolynne Poole, Christopher Maloney, Kye Sones, Nicola- Marie, Brad Shackleton
Boys: Jake Quickenden, Rylan Clark, Adam Burridge, Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur, Nathan Fagan- Gayle
Girls: Ella Henderson, Jade Ellis, Jade Collins, Lucy Spraggan, Leanne Robinson, Amy Mottram
Groups: MK1, Union J (Formally Triple J), Mitsotu, Poisonous Twin, GMD3, Duke, Times Red
