Coiffed ‘dos, popped collars and sultry looks... This year’s X Factor contestants have been given their celebrity make-over.
The 12 finalists are set to rock the stage this coming Saturday in the first of the ten live shows.
Heading up the girls, X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger is bringing Abi Alton, Tamera Foster and Hannah Barrett to the finals, leaving fourth-time-contestant Melanie McCabe behind.
With the groups this year, Gary Barlow has chosen Kingsland Road, Rough Copy and Miss Dynamix as his final three.
Louis Walsh’s chosen three include Luke Friend, Nicholas McDonald and Sam Callahan for the ‘boys’ category.
Finally, the ever-entertaining Sharon Osbourne’s ‘over-25s’ include Shelley Smith, Lorna Simpson and the favourite, Sam Bailey.
