X Factor 2012: Meet the girls: Jade Ellis, Ella Henderson, Lucy Spraggan

Jade Ellis (X Factor 2012)

The X Factor 2012 final twelve were revealed this weekend, and today we profile the Girls category, mentored this year by Tulisa

The N-Dubz star was thrilled with getting the girls at the weekend, seen screaming into her phone at Simon Cowell!

Tulisa currently has three stars competing for her in the competition, with one of them - Ella Henderson - the favourite to win.

Meet the girls below!

Jade Ellis

Age: 25
Location: London
Why she thinks people should vote for her: "There is a gap in the market for a young British female urban vocal. From the start I have taken every opportunity to learn more about myself as an artist and I will continue to take steps to improve and grow."
Tulisa says: "She is fantastic - hearing a vocal like that, you just can’t let it go."

Ella Henderson

Age: 16
From: Grimsby
Why she thinks people should vote for her: "I believe that I have a lot to give and I'm fully dedicated to my music. I know that by doing this show I'm going to grow as a performer and my confidence will build up each week."
Tulisa says: "She is so amazing. She just has this air of innocence about her when she sings and gets lost in the moment. It’s beautiful, it really is."

Lucy Spraggan

Age: 20
From: Sheffield.

Why she thinks people should vote for her: "I would love for the public to see how hard I've worked, share my experiences with them, entertain them and be successful within the music industry. If winning this year’s show made that happen for me, I would be over the moon."

Tulisa says: "I love her to bits. As a mentor you like the music your acts perform and that they sing, but it’s rare that you can be a fan of your contestant and with Lucy, I am a fan."
