The X Factor 2012 live shows kick off tonight and WE ARE RUDDY EXCITED!

It's once again time to face the music, as the finalists take to the stage to sing live for the very first time.

Tonight will see all of the final 12 perform, as well as the wild card result revealed.

One of Adam Burridge, Chris Maloney, Amy Mottram or Times Red will win a spot in he competition, after intitally being rejected by their mentors at judges' houses.

But they won't have time to celebrate, having to quickly get on stage and perform to compete with the other finalists.

One budding performer's dream will be over tomorrow night as the eliminations begin, and it'll be the public deciding who is in the bottom two.

Tweeting ahead of tonight's show there was a mixture of thoughts and feelings from the finalists.
