PICTURES! X Factor 2014 judges' houses first look

Here's a first look at The X Factor 2014 judges' houses, which will air next weekend on ITV.

Offering a glimpse into the jet set lifestyle that The X Factor winner could have, the four categories travel to glamorous destinations across the world.

With just one more chance to impress their mentor, each act will be hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the finals.

This year the Groups category will jet off to Bermuda to sing for Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell invites the Over 25s category to his home in Los Angeles, the Girls category are hosted by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in Nice, and the Boys category fly out to Mexico to perform for Mel B.

And as always, with crucial decisions to be made, each judge has help at hand from industry figures who know all about what it takes to have a hit record.

Louis is joined by former X Factor judge Tulisa, Cheryl enlists renowned rapper and Brit award winner Tinie Tempah, Mel B recruits fellow former Spice Girl, Emma Bunton and Simon reunites with X Factor stalwart Sinitta.

The X Factor airs this FRIDAY, Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
