PICTURES! See the girls at X Factor 2018 judges' houses

Here are all the pictures from tonight's first round of The X Factor 2018 judges' houses.

This evening we head to Malibu with the Girls and Simon Cowell.

Simon is joined by some 50 guests from the music business including Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, Diane Warren and Ryan Seacrest. There's also former X Factor winner Leona Lewis and judges' houses regular Sinitta .

Singing in the Girls category are Bella Penfold, 19 from Essex, Georgia Burgess, 20 from Birmingham, Maria Laroco, 17 from Philippines, Molly Scott, 16 from County Durham, Scarlett Lee, 20 from Surrey and Shan, 25 from Croydon.

One by one, they sing for Simon and his array of guests with a hopefully killer song choice. Due to a visa issue, Maria was unable to attend judges' houses in person in America. As a result, she performs for Simon via video link from London.


At the end of judges' houses, each judge will pick four acts to make the live shows.

The girls each sit down with Simon to find out their fate in a series of tense, tearful conversations.

The X Factor Judges Houses air from Sunday 7th October, 8pm on ITV

The judges' houses continue next weekend. Robbie Williams has the Groups and will be taking them to Beverley Hills with guest judge David Walliams. Louis Tomlinson will take the Boys category to Ibiza with fellow One Direction star Liam Payne plus Nile Rodgers. Finally, Ayda Williams will be in LA with the Overs, joined by guests Leona Lewis and Adam Lambert.

The live shows will begin with the finalists at the end of the month, airing weekends through until December where the winner is crowned.
