Here's a spoiler filled look ahead at tonight's X Factor 2014 arena auditions.

This evening sees the start of the second round of auditions, with 187 successful acts from the room try outs hoping to impress the judges again.

But this time they'll have a VERY hard to please live audience to also cope with.

The first few acts struggle to make an impression on the crowd at Wembley, with both Bradley Denholm and Babalola Ehidiamen being branded BORING.

But 17-year-old student James Graham, who got four yeses at the auditions, gives Mel B "exactly what the X Factor is about... WITH SPRINKLES!"

Cheryl Cole impersonator Jale Antor leaves Cheryl speechless as she returns with another special performance. The 42-year-old from Skegness is once again dressed like the Girls Aloud singer, complete with her own take on Cheryl's famous rose tattoo, and sings Crazy Stupid Love.

The equally wacky but actually talented Courtesans take to the stage next with a bizarre but brilliant performance of Delilah by Tom Jones.

But with the pressure on, some of the other acts begin to crack, with tears from Rebecca Jones.

Charlie Brown and Stevie Tennent also let nerves get the best of them in front of the 3,000 strong crowd.

But Paul Akister takes the challenge in his stride as he belts out Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye, leading to Cheryl and Mel to get up and dance around Simon.

Simon quips: "Paul I think we both had a great time during that song actually."

16-year-old Lauren Platt puts quite the spin on How Will I know by Whitney Houston, reaffirming Cheryl's room audition comment that the teenager is "her favourite 16 year old so far."

As the first day of arena auditions draw to a close, acts find it difficult to make the transition from the rooms to the arenas.

Student Indiana Ifill RUINS Mel B's favourite track I'm Going Down by Mary J Blige while Lou Boy does... God only knows what on the stage.

17-year-old Kieron Winter is next on and actually taking the competition seriously, singing Let Her Go by Passenger.

Last on to the stage is Amy Connelly, who got four yeses from the judges and reduced Cheryl to tears with her performance of With You from Ghost back in the room auditions.

Amy got to Cheryl’s first ever judge’s house in series five, but will she manage to get to the live shows this year?

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