Here's your first spoiler filled preview of The X Factor 2014 as we take a look at this evening's opening audition episode.

Tonight's show kicks off with the wacky as the over the top Blonde Electric storm the judges room.

The duo - made up of sisters Jazzy and Ruby - have lived all over the world and worked in a variety of jobs, including a waitress, model and nanny.

They claim that the only place they've not sung is on a helicopter and submarine but will their version of Jessie J's Do it like a Dude allow them to perform at Wembley in the next stage?

A string of cute guys with guitars winds up Simon next, putting poor Reece Bibby on the back foot as soon as he steps in front of the judges.

But the 15-year-old's performance of Latch by Disclosure seems to have proved Simon was - dare we say it - wrong!

With this year's age limit down to just 14, there are a number of other youngsters on tonight's episode including 14-year-old Charlie Jones who is hoping to get hoards of girls screaming his name.

Then Chloe O'Gorman wows the panel with her voice before 16-year-old Lauren Platt also impresses the judges in the rooms.

But this being The X Factor it's not just about talent and all of the acts that audition have plenty of personality.

Irish Ben Quinlan brings a rose for Cheryl as he sings for her, much to Mel B's annoyance.

And then we meet another Cheryl fan in the form of Jale Antor, who has come dressed up as her idol to belt out Fight For This Love.

Tonight's opener also sees Cheryl's famous diamond tears as the Girls Aloud star is left emotional by the return of Amy Connolly, who made Cheryl's judges' houses back in 2008.

Shayen Willis' determination ends up seeing him auditioning for Simon Cowell alone before the judges are treated to a lunch of Chinese food, courtesy of the mum of another auditionee.

Then the judges find themselves getting VERY distracted during Carol Trefarthen's performance of Simply The Best as the 63-year-old begins to STRIP.

Posh Chloe Jasmine makes for quite the change when she walks in the room next, with the 23-year-old model singing Black Coffee by Ella Fitzgerald for a spot in the next round.

But while some win over Simon, getting a yes from the boss proves difficult as his harsh put downs come out for many of the contestants.

Last to go before the boss is 30-year-old former Navy seaman Jay James, who sings Say Something by A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera in a bid to make it to the arena stages.

The X Factor 2014 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.
