X Factor 2012 bootcamp hopefuls 3

Here's a first sneak peek at some of this year's X Factor bootcamp hopefuls, as they arrived in Liverpool this week.

Around 200 wannabes have made it to this point, having impressed the judges enough to get three or more yeses at the auditions.

For sixty of them however it was over before it began, as judges axed contestants before they even performed on Tuesday night.

For the others it was on to the next stage, ahead of a live performance at Liverpool's Echo Arena tomorrow.

Thousands of fans will pack out the venue to watch the remaining singers doing their best in a bid to make it through to judges houses.

By the end of the week just 32 acts will remain, who will then be split up into their respective categories as their mentor is revealed.
