PICTURES! X Factor 2014 makeovers: Final 12 get glammed up!

Meet The X Factor 2014 UK finalists

The X Factor 2014 final 12 have got together to pose for a new photoshoot ahead of tonight’s first live show.

Kicking off the series is a Number 1s theme featuring a mix of some huge recent chart toppers as well as some more classic hits.

Each of the final 12 contestants will sing a track, taking to the stage and performing live for the judges and audience at home.

Dermot O’Leary presides over proceedings, while judges and mentors Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole, Simon Cowell and Mel B take their seats behind the judges’ desk to battle it out with their contestants.

Louis has the Groups, Simon the Overs, Mel B the Boys and Cheryl the Girls. There is sure to be drama and disagreements between the judges as the competition hots up, but one thing they can agree on is that the standard of competition is better than ever this year.

The final 12 – Andrea Faustini, Ben Haenow, Blonde Electra, Chloe Jasmine, Fleur East, Jake Quickenden, Jay James, Lauren Platt, New boy band, Only The Young, Paul Akister and Stephanie Nala– will be hoping to win over not just the judges but also the public.

As well as that, we'll meet the four wild card acts.
