The X Factor 2013 auditions continued tonight as another set of hopefuls went before the judges.

It was back to the judges' rooms as wannabes performed for Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherziner, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

Starting things off was 16 year old student Chloe O'Gorman from The Wirral who Gary described her as ‘a little ball of energy’ as she got four yeses from the judges.

17-year-old Barclay Beales, unemployed from Devon, impressed the judges with his yodeling, telling them he was inspired by Taylor Ware on America’s Got Talent. Nicole found his performance hot as he too got through to the arena auditions.

54 year old Thomas Feeley from Leeds, unemployed and part time DJ, brought his laptop to help perform Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder but the panel were far from won over as they sent him packing.

Fortunately, Relley Clark was next into the room and her performance of Don’t you Worry Child wowed the panel.

The housekeeper was followed by van driver Shelley Smith, who also won four yeses from the panel after singing Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin.

Completing the string of successful auditions was 18 year old Ryan Mathie from Hull, currently training to be a mechanic and working for the council, singing Ray Lamontagne by Jolene.

But the good had to end soon and Stuart Manson's take on Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth got laughs rather than yeses from the judges.

Teenager Abi Alton, a Morrison’s sales assistant from Guisborough – near Middlesbrough, performed Travelling Soldier by Dixie Chicks but split the judges. While Gary loved her, Louis and Nicole weren't too sure she's right for the competition, but did give her a chance in tomorrow's arena auditions.

45 year old salesman from South East Londone Colin Stacey performed alongsid e a framed picture of his cat Patch to end the third part of auditions on a rather low note.

Part 4 saw a series of comebacks, as Jade Richards, Melanie McCabe, Amy Mottram and the Dolly Rockers all returned to again make it through to bootcamp.

23 year old Jade was auditioning for the third time, having two years ago made it to the judges’ houses with Kelly Rowland. The Scottish singer performs When I was your Man by Bruno Mars and won a spot int he next round.

Amy meanwhile auditioned last year and and narrowly missed out on a spot in the live shows as part of the wild card twist, and followed Jade into the next round with her performance of Clown by Emeli Sande.

Girl group the Dolly Rockers - Lucie (26, receptionist) and Sophie (24, stylist) - were unsuccessful at Louis’ judge’s house in 2009, but were back this year a different band member Daniele (22, stylist) and it got them through to the arenas.

And finally, closing the show, was 19 year old Melanie from Dublin who sung Rihanna's Diamonds. It was her fourth year auditioning for X Factor and her performance - and determination - saw Louis reduced to tears.

Tomorrow night will see the successful auditionees have to sing in front of crowds of 4,000 at Wembley Arena.

The X Factor 2013 continues tomorrow at 8PM on ITV.
