PICTURES! X Factor 2012 auditions in Cardiff


Here's the pictures as The X Factor 2012 judges arrive for the final day of auditions in Cardiff!

New judge Nicole Scherzinger will be joined by Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the panel for only the second time, following a range of guest judges earlier on during the audition tour.

The Pussycat Doll singer was announced earlier this month as the new fourth judge, replacing Kelly Rowland on the panel.

And she looked stunning as she walked into Cardiff's International Arena this afternoon, along with Tulisa who wowed in a fitted blue dress.

As Nicole and her fellow judges arrived in Cardiff this afternoon the sun was fortunately shinning, and hopefully a great day will bring some great talent!

Wales has always brought some characters to the show, with hunky John Adams one of our top favourites on the show last year.

And of course, we'll be interested to see if Ceri Rees will be back for yet another attempt to make it past the judges.

Perhaps new judge Nicole will finally give her that much awaited yes?

After this afternoon's final round of try outs it'll be onto bootcamp for the lucky remaining hopefuls, which will take place later in the summer.
