PICTURES! XFactor 2013 final 12 revealed: Meet the live show contestants!

After a month of auditions and try outs, The X Factor 2013 finalists have been revealed, so meet the final 12 here!

Over the past two nights we've seen the live show contestants confirmed, as each judge picked just three acts to take through to the final stage.

For the Overs, Sharon Osbourne was put in charge and flew out to LA to pick what turned out to be an all female final trio.

Sam Bailey, Lorna Simpson and Shelley Smith will all be going forward to next weekend's first live show.

In San Tropez, the boys perform for mentor Louis Walsh and guest judges Shane Filan, Nicole Appleton and Sinitta.

After plenty of tears, including a few from Louis, Luke Friend, Sam Callahan and Nicholas McDonald were revealed as the final three.

Over in the sunny Caribbean and the girls performed for mentor Nicole Scherzinger and guest judge Mary J Blige. Tamera Foster, Abi Alton and Hannah Barrett became the lucky trio to get yeses and progress to the finals.

Finally, the groups sung for their mentor Gary Barlow and guest judge Olly Murs, with Kingsland, Rough Copy and Miss Dynamix becoming the final three for the live shows.
