The X Factor 2013 auditions came to an end tonight as the final few hopefuls went before the judges' desk.
It was a bit of a slow start as auditions began in the capital, with duo Duplex winning praise only for their looks after a Cheryl Cole cover.
Butler Shozod Zikiryaev, delivery driver Krysztof Misiewiz's and 58 year old accountant Peter Duboff all also failed to impress the panel, with a resounding four nos each to their names.
Student Justin Peng however shocked the panel with his performance of a Whitney Houston classic.
The Chinese national is in the UK studying and performed I Look to You, carrying a rose in his hand for Nicole, winning not only a yes from her but also the other judges.
The talent was then on the up with a string of successful auditions, with hunky Sam Callahan leading the way with his performance of You’re Beautiful by James Blunt.
24 year old pub and club singer from Manchester Paul Akister was told he's full of soul but needed to work on his performance ahead of tomorrow night's Wembley audition.
A familiar face then surprised the judges as 27 year old builder from Wolverhampton Joseph Whelan returned. The rocker had the competition last year and was devastated after he missed out on a place at Judges Houses. His take on Always by Bon Jovi had the panel gushing, with Gary Barlow saying he loved his voice even more this year.
Student couple Green Boots were laughed out of the audition room as the talent took a downwards turn, while sisters Joanna 21 and Alexandra 20 didn't do any better after singing Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys.
Patience bought along her mum Rose for her audition, but it didn't help much as it was a no from each of the judges.
Girl group Daisy Chains were faced with a difficult decision after first getting a no following their performance of Stop In the Name of Love by Diana Ross and the Supreme. Gary offered Hannah Sheares the chance to go solo, and she took it.
"I want to do it on myself, I feel selfish but I want to do it for my family and my dream," a teary Hannah told the panel.
The Overs category got a few more belters as the talent continued to impress.
Jayson Newland wowed with Never Too Much by Luther Vandross, while music teacher Andrew Magee got Gary Barlow's approval for her original song before Lord Simpson made Wembley with I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston.
Finally, this year's oldest auditionees were the last act to go before the panel. The Nostalgics are aged between 68-94 and meet every Wednesday at their local bowling club in Coventry. Singing with an organ, the group performed Bring Me Sunshine and won a spot in the next round... and a new member, in the form of Louis Walsh!
The X Factor 2013 auditions air tonight at 8PM on ITV.
