This is where it gets serious. Well, sort of. It’s the judges’ houses stage and, hooray, there’s no Sinitta passing opinions this year. Plus — shock, horror — Louis Walsh is taking his six groups all the way to Las Vegas (where it’s Sharon Osbourne not Prince Harry helping him make his final selection) rather than his usual hop across the Irish Sea. Tulisa is in St Lucia with Tinie Tempah by her side and Nicole Scherzinger is in Dubai with Ne-Yo.
Only Gary Barlow is staying in England where he and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole have the unenviable task of whittling down the over-25s. The decisions are announced in tomorrow’s show.
The best acts from boot camp have been split into four categories and are now competing for just 12 places in the live shows, down from last year's 16. Arriving at glamorous locations around the world, the contestants first discover the identity of their mentor and celebrity guest, and then face the task of singing with just guitar or piano accompaniment as they try to outshine their rivals. Gary Barlow is joined by Cheryl Cole as he auditions the over-28s at an English stately home, Nicole Scherzinger and Ne-Yo are in Dubai with the boys, and Tinie Tempah assists Tulisa choosing the girls on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, while there's a shock for the groups as Sharon Osbourne helps Louis Walsh in Las Vegas. Dermot O'Leary hosts.
