X Factor 2012 judges: Gary Barlow wants 80s theme week!

Gary Barlow

X Factor 2012 judge Gary Barlow has revealed he wants an 80s theme week on the live shows this year.

Gary and the acts in his category - Carolynne Poole, Melanie Masson and Kye Sones - appeared on Daybreak and This Morning yesterday appealing for votes ahead of the first live show.

It's clear that this year no one is keen to be the first to be eliminated in Sunday night's first results show.

Quizzed on what theme weeks they'd like to see, there weren't many surprises from the contestants.

Carolynne said: "I want a country week, bring it on!"

While Kye hoped for "British legends" and Melanie wanted a "blues" week.

Unfortunately for Gary, none of them wanted a Take That week.

Not to be offended however, Gary revealed his own choice: "I think we should have 80s week, do you know what, I mean, that's when I brought all my records, that was brilliant music."

He went on to joke: "But it was just before my time, I was 2 or 3 at that point."
