PICTURES! See tonight's X Factor 2017 auditions and contestants

Who's on The X Factor tonight?

Here are all the pictures from tonight's third round of auditions on The X Factor 2017.

This year auditions were held across the UK, taking place in Liverpool, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

But tonight the try outs visit Thorpe Park in a first for the show, where even the judges experienced a ride or two of their own.

While the location may be new, the process remains the same.

The contestants begin their X Factor journey with the intimate closed rooms, in which they find themselves eyeball-to-eyeball in front of the judges.

The acts need at least three yeses from Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh.


The acts hoping to impress the panel this time around include Kevin Davy White, who originally comes from Paris. Having quit his "boring" day job, Kevin is now hoping to make it in the music industry.

32-year-old Talia Dean reveals to the panel she previously had a chance encounter with both Sharon and Nicole during her job, and says the pair encouraged her to audition.

Samuel Sheperd catches the judges' eye as he walks into the auditions room in heels. "I wear them when I perform," he says before singing KC and The Sunshine Band's Boogie Shoes.

And 22-year-old Drew Wedlake spends his days working in a bed and breakfast while busking at nights. For his room audition, he sings a stripped back cover of Seven Nation Army's White Stripes.

Meanwhile, groups going before the panel include New Dynamixx, made up of Izzy, Codie, Charlotte, Jake and Von'Jai, while Jedward meets Justin Bieber in the form of Pretty Boy Karma, made up of 19-year-old twins Philip and Achilles originally from Athens, Greece.

The X Factor 2017 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.
