The X Factor 2012 final twelve were revealed this weekend, and today we profile the boys category, mentored this year by Nicole.
The former Pussycat Doll singer is a new addition to the line up this year, and made some controversial choices with her finalists.
Meet the boys below!
Why he thinks people should vote for him: "I will bring versatility, passion and raw emotion to the competition and if given the chance to show my song writing abilities hopefully that will show exactly why I should win the competition."
Nicole says: "He is so brilliant, he is a modern day poet. He’s really special. He’s a real artist and I’m really excited to work with him."
Why he thinks people should vote for him: "I'm going to bring performances to The X Factor that no previous contestant has ever done before, I want to be the first dance artist to come out of this show, I just hope people pick up the phones."
Nicole says: "He’s all spikes and sparkle, we need diva music and empowering diva anthems for him. He would definitely have his own audience."
Why he thinks people should vote for him: "I'm not confident at all with any aspect of myself but singing is my way of expressing myself because talking is not my strong point at all."
Nicole says: "He’s got an unbelievable voice - he needs a lot of support and love and I am definitely ready to give that to him."
