PICTURES! See tonight's X Factor 2018 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 2018.

This series sees the return of the arena auditions at The SSE Arena, Wembley, in front of the judges and a 4,000 strong audience.

Should they get more than three ‘yeses’ they will go through to the judge’s deliberation, where the judges will decide who gets to fight for a seat in the Six Chair Challenge.

Standing in their way are the new line up of X Factor judges, Simon Cowell, Ayda Williams, Louis Tomlinson and Robbie Williams.

Acts going before them tonight include nervous Natasha Boon, a 26-year-old singing Florist from Camden, London who says she's never performed in front of an arena audience before.

We also meet teenage hopefuls including 14-year-old student Aaliyah, 15-year-old Acacia K and 17-year-old Owen Matthews, aka Ozzie.


Further contestants at tonight's auditions are Felix Shepherd, a 20-year-old Student studying a degree in Song writing from Birmingham, Patrick James, a 27-year-old Pub Singer from Dublin and Adam Davis, a 23-year-old Musician from Brighton.

Also singing for a spot at the six chair challenge are Alexander Stewart, a 30-year-old Jazz Singer from Manchester and IVO, a 42-year-old Choreographer from Bulgaria.

Closing the show is 17-year-old Maria Laroco from the Philippines. "Since I was a little girl I wanted to be an international superstar, I want to be big" she tells the judges.

Maria then bursts into a powerful performance of Purple Rain which gets the audience up on their feet, while the judges look on shocked.

Those who get through will join the successful acts from last week's opening episode, including Danny Tetley who belted out Jennifer Hudson's And I’m Telling You for Simon 17 years after first singing for him on Pop Idol.


Other contestants who got through were 16-year-old Molly Scott from County Durham, Dreamer hitmaker Janice Robinson and returning hopeful Anthony Russell.

The X Factor, Thames/Syco for ITV, continues at 8:30pm Saturday 8th September.
