The X Factor 2013 auditions continued tonight on ITV, but who got those all important yeses to make tomorrow night's second audition show?

This week it was the turn of the groups, with Kingsland – Josh, Matt, Connor, Thompson and Jay [19-24] - kicking things off to a generally positive response from the judges.

The five piece work part time in a bar and all live together in East London and performed Don’t You Worry Child – Swedish House Mafia to get four yeses, but Sharon told the boys to act more like a group.

Brick City – Yasmin 23 year old bar maid, James 24 year old shoe shop sales assistant, Anton 27 year old teaching assistant for children with special needs and Duane 28 year old youth worker - sung an acapella version of Bruno Mars' Locked Out Of Heaven to join Kingsland with four yeses and in the next round of the competition.

Also getting through to tomorrow night's arena auditions were Rough Copy- Sterling 28, Kaz, 24 and Joe, 26, all from London. They previously auditioned in 2012 and got to judges houses, but unfortunately had to leave the competition due to visa issues.

Youngsters also dominated the successful auditionees, with Giles Potter – a 16 year old student from Worcester - wowing the panel with both a cover of Price Tag by Jessie J and his cheeky personality.

Lydia Lucy – a 19 year old dance student from Romford, Essex - also sung a Jessie J son, but Sharon and Louis told her she needed to learn more about herself, suggesting she would be more suited to a group.

Nicholas McDonald – a 16 year old student from Motherwell - said before his audition he wanted to be a popstar because he's "rubbish at school", but split the panel. Gary told him he'd be a finalist in a year's time and gave the youngster a no, but three yeses from the other judges mean Nicolas is through to the arenas.

Stephanie Woods – a 20 year old holiday entertainer from Skelmersdale, Lancashire - was back on the series after six years. Steph previously entered the X Factor and got to Sharon’s judges house when she was 14.

Steph performed Leona Lewis' cover of Snow Patrol's Run to leave Sharon in tears, but Gary and Nicole told her she still had work to do. Never the less, four yeses saw Steph sailing through to Sunday evening's second audition show.

Souli Roots - real name Heather – is a 34 year old call handler for the NHS from South London. The singer songwriter performed her own Recession song and got Louis on her side, but Gary pointed out: "But there's no voice!"

Somehow, Souli managed to sneak three yeses from the panel and will be amongst the hopefuls in tomorrow evening's second show.

We then met James McDonald – a 25 year old bus driver from Nottingham - and Louise Harper – 34 year old children’s entertainer from Warrington - who both won over the panel with some more classic karaoke covers.

Finally, Next of Kin – Nathan 32, Kieran 27 and Mark 29 - revealed they were hoping that the X Factor will give them a second chance.

The boys are three brothers from Colchester and they all work together in a factory, packing boxes, having previously had a music deal and even single release with Universal Music. The trio performed their original song Can’t Find Me Without You to leave Nicole in tears and the other judges gushing with praise.

Who do you think will cope well during the arena auditions?

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