X Factor 2012 judges pick the final 24... and there's plenty of tears!

Nicole cries

The X Factor 2012 final 24 will be revealed tonight, and expect plenty of tears as the judges deliver their verdicts.

In turn, the remaining acts in each category are brought to the stage as the six names through to judges' homes are revealed.

The boys are up first and there's plenty of talent on the stage, but just a handful of spots up for grabs.

"I did not think that would happen, I’m just shocked right now," says one hopeful after hearing the news.

Another reacts: "I’ve let everyone down"

As the girls find out their fate, one says: "My heart is pounding. I’m so happy. I’m so so happy "

With the girls through, the judges then deliver their verdict to the over 28’s

"All day I have been thinking it was a no," says one wannabe as the perhaps surprising results are revealed.

Finally it's the groups, but the judges want to put SEVEN of them through.

As a result, two groups must compete in a sing off in a bid to make it through to the final stage.
