Who are The X Factor final 12?

Last weekend saw The X Factor 2016 final 12 confirmed at judges' houses as the mentors picked their finalists.

This year Louis Walsh has the Groups (gasp), Sharon Osbourne the Overs and Simon Cowell the Girls, leaving Nicole Scherzinger with the Boys.

The difficult decisions have been made and the final 12 can now be revealed with three acts from each category through to the lives and one step closer to becoming the winner of The X Factor.

Simon's Girls are: Samantha Lavery, Emily Middlemas and Gifty Louise.

Sharon's Overs are: Honey G, Saara Aalto and Relley C.

Louis' Groups are: Brooks Way, Bratavio and 5 After Midnight.

Nicole's Boys are: Matt Terry, Freddy Parker and Ryan Lawrie.

One of them will be crowned the winner of The X Factor 2016 before the year is out.

It's now onto the live shows which work as usual: The acts will each sing live and then the public will vote. The two singers with the fewest votes face elimination in Sunday's results show.

This evening's opening show has also got a confirmed (albeit extremely vague) theme of Express Yourself.

Each of the final 12 contestants will perform a song that showcases who they are as artists, in the hope of avoiding being the first to go.

The X Factor airs this Saturday night at 8PM on ITV with the first live performances from the final 12.

On Sunday, the show continues at 8PM with the first results where one singer will be sent home.
