The Top 12
After weeks of exciting auditions, challenging boot camp, and international home visits with special guests including Beyoncé, Good Charlotte, Leona Lewis, Jason Derülo and Mel C, The X Factor has a top 12! Last night judges and mentors Guy Sebastian (under 25 males), Mel B (under 25 females), Ronan Keating (groups) and Natalie Bassingthwaighte (over 25’s) revealed the three acts they’d each be taking into the live shows, which kick off next Monday. It was an emotion-fuelled episode with surprising decisions — Guy let Trent go, Ronan put an end to Up Front’s X Factor dream (though his decision to take them to LA baffled some viewers), and Natalie had to say goodbye to cancer survivor Pamela and transgender contestant Paige. But this top 12 are the performers the judges think have what it takes to go all the way. We want to know your opinion: do you think these contestants have the X factor?
