The auditions are over, the judges have sifted through thousands of hopefuls, and hearts have been broken. Who has made it through to the final 12?

Whilst the ratings haven't been as impressive as for Strictly or even Eastenders, fans of the singing competition have been glued to their screens every weekend as the numbers were whittled down to the lucky dozen.

Some obvious choices have made it to the live shows, which begin next Saturday, when the judges will also unveil their 'Wild Card' choice.

So who will be singing next Saturday in front of millions of people? Here are the categories, in order they were televised.

Groups (mentored by Louis Walsh):
Blonde Electra - irritating siblings who could be this year's Jedward...
Boyband - an 8 strong group, put together by the judges. Strong voices, but will that much testosterone actually work? It didn't for Blazin' Squad (remember them?)...
Only The Young - Louis thinks they could be too nice, but there's a touch of Fleetwood Mac to this 2-girl, 2-guys group...

Boys (mentored by Mel B):
Andrea Faustini - the Italian Cub who wowed the judges, and brought tears to many. An incredible voice, and thereby a strong contestant for the final three...
Jack Quickenden - not the greatest of voices, but easy on the eye. Girls will love him...
Paul Akister - after falling at the final hurdle with Louis last year, he has made it to the live shows. Great, souful voice.

Girls (mentored by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini)
Chloe Jasmine - loved and hated in equal measures, Chloe is this year's Kitty. But how will she fare on Saturday nights?
Lauren Platt - powered through to her seat the weekend before, Lauren has the voice to elevate her over her peers. But has she got the X Factor?
Stephanie Nala - pretty voice, but nerves could get the better of her...

Over 26s (mentored by Simon Cowell)
Ben Haenow - with a catchphrase already in place (hey now!), and an impressive performance at the judges' house, it's no surprise he got through, but can he sustain this every week?
Fleur East - with her big hair and big voice, this lady is ready to bring it! And we'll be waiting...
Jay James - the hunk of the show. The puppy dog look, the voice, the doting father - he's got a lot going for him. But is popularity better than talent? Only time will tell...

Whatever your views are on the contestants, it looks a good line-up, so let the true battle commence...

Who do you think will win? And who do you think will be the Wild Card?

Saturdays just got interesting again...
