The X Factor 2012 judges have admitted that they failed to agree when picking the final 24.
Tonight we’ll see the contestants who have made judges’ houses revealed, and there’s set to be some surprises.
“Today has been really emotional day, we cut down 70 to the final 24,” Tulisa says.
Gary adds: “The atmosphere is so tense, we’re dealing with people’s careers and lives, we want to make the right decisions and we hope we have.”
New judge Nicole comments: “I get very emotional when sending people home because as an artist and having been in a position I know how they’re feeling, we have their dreams and whole lives in the palms of our hands.
“I’m the cry baby, I’m teaching myself to hold the tears back this year.”
Tulisa continued: “There will be a lot of tears on stage, it was a hard decision to come to, not all the judges agreed on all of the acts.
“There was a lot of emotions , but moving forward, positive thinking, we have our final 24 and one of those people are the winners of The X Factor 2012.”
Gary concluded: “The people we’re letting go of are still brilliant.”
The X Factor 2012 airs tonight at 7:30PM on ITV1.
