PICTURES! X Factor 2013 judges houses - the Boys sing for Louis Walsh!

Here's a picture preview of this week's X Factor 2013 judges' houses, as the final six boys sing for Louis Walsh.

After weeks of auditions and last weekend's nail biting boot camp, just 24 acts remain in the fight to become this year's X Factor champion.

This weekend each judge will have to pick only three to progress through to the live shows which start later this month.

The six acts remaining the Boys category are Sam Callahan, Paul Akister, Nicholas Mcdonald, Ryan Mathie, Luke Friend and Giles Potter​.

This week we'll see them fly out to San Tropez in France for one last challenge as they sing for a spot in the live finals.

Helping out Louis make his decisions and watching the boys' performances will be a trio of helpers in the form of All Saints' Nicole Appleton, Westlife's Shane Filan and... Sinitta.

Which three boys do you want to see in the live shows?

Elsewhere and this year the Girls category will jet off to the Caribbean to sing for Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne invites the Over 25s category to her home in Los Angeles and the Groups category fly out to New York to perform for Gary Barlow.
