Dean Maynard names Carolynne Poole as his X Factor 2012 Midas Act

Carolynne Poole

The X Factor auditions are over and that means only one thing...I must name my Midas Act for the 2012.

My previous X Factor prediction successes include One Direction, Leona Lewis and Cher Lloyd and my eye for spotting up and coming talent, has earned me the nicknames of the 'New Simon Cowell' and 'X Factor's 5th Judge'...so no pressure then.

This year, I have already predicted the Winner of Britain's Got Talent (Ashleigh and Pudsey) beating Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges in the process.

So here we go...

The act that I will be supporting throughout this year’s X Factor is…Carolynne Poole.

I loved Carolynne's first audition and I truly believe she has a fantastic chance of winning this year. She is also a good friend of mine.

Carolynne said this, when I told her the news "Yipeeeeee!!! Awww that's awesome, thank you!! I'm made up babe, that's fab!! C xxxx"

In terms of the rest, I really like Lucy Spraggan and Melanie Masson but I think the main threat for Carolynne comes from 16 year old Ella Henderson.

Since 2006 my ‘Midas’ Acts have gone on to make 32 Finals from 36 shows. Fingers crossed that continues in 2012.

Tune into the X Factor on Saturday to see if Carolynne Poole can make it through bootcamp and on to judges houses.
