XFactor 2013: Gary Barlow throws water over a contestant!

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2013)

The X Factor 2013 auditions got of a rather dramatic start yesterday as Gary Barlow ended up throwing water over one contestant.

Gary and his fellow judges - Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne - were at Wembley Arena last night for the first arena auditions of the series.

And our spies have revealed that there were some stand out performances from the hopefuls, who have already gone before the judges this year.

The panel previously toured the UK with the judges' rooms auditions, and successful acts have been invited to perform again this week in London.

Only this time there is a 3,000 strong crowd to impress as well as the panel, and while some failed, others triumphed.

One act not only had Gary, Sharon and Louis all standing, but also got Nicole lying over the desk after storming their performance.

And Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack teased: "Have cried twice today watching contestants."

Meanwhile, male trio Rough Copy returned to the show after almost making it to judges' houses last year.

The group had wowed the panel in the previous series but were forced to withdraw after issues with one of the member's visas.

The X Factor auditions continue at Wembley all this week.
