X Factor 2012: Meet the overs: Carolynne Poole, Kye Sones, Melanie Masson

Carolynne Poole

The X Factor 2012 final twelve were revealed this weekend, and today we profile the Overs category, mentored this year by Gary Barlow.

The Take That star said today that he hated the name of the group, and instead wanted to rename it to 'Team GB'.

Whatever you wish to call it, Gary currently has three stars competing for him on the show and all three have been tipped to do well in the competition.

Carolynne Poole

Age: 32
Location: Huddersfield
Why she thinks people should vote for her: "I think The X Factor needs to see that Country isn't just line dancing and cowboy boots!! It'd be so awesome to show the world that the big country voices don't just come from America!"
Gary says: "She’s got an amazing voice, she knows who she is and where she is going, and to top it all off, she’s gorgeous."

Kye Sones

Age: 30
Location: London
Why she thinks people should vote for him: "If I won The X Factor it would be a victory for anyone who has never given up on something. It would show people that you should never give up on your dreams no matter how many knock backs you experience."
Gary says: "I’m looking forward to learning from him because I think he is someone who knows a lot about music and I think he’s going to be an amazing contestant."

Melanie Masson

Age: 44
Location: North London
Why she thinks people should vote for her: "It would be so positive to show that you can still reach your goals, achieve your dreams, be taken seriously and still be relevant no matter where you are in your life, what you've done before or how old you are."
Gary says: "She’s an amazing talent. She’s a proper soul singer."
