It was the final round of Arena auditions on The X Factor 2014 tonight and here's a recap and round up of just who got through to bootcamp.

First up tonight was hunky Charlie Martinez-Hernandez who despite dashing looks bored Mel B nearly asleep.

However with tree yeses from the other judges, the US air force worker got into bootcamp.

He joins Ten Senah who also failed to win over Mel, being branded "really annoying", as well as Geordie Michael Mcarouli who also made the cut despite Mel saying no.

It wasn't until Janet Grogan from Dublin took to the stage that Mel got exciting, standing on her feet in praise for Janet's over of I Still Haven't Found What I Am Looking For by U2. Needless to say, Janet got through too bootcamp.

Charlie Jones made Wannabe by Spice Girls "better than the original" according to Louis Walsh with a slowed down take and a unique rap winning him a spot in the next round.


Mum of two Helen Fulthorpe almost literally brought the house down with her cover of Try A Little Tenderness by Otis Redding prompting four yeses and a standing ovation.

Things weren't as straight forward for Tom Mann who, returning after rejection on year's show, was stopped during an original song.

However a crowd pleasing acoustic version of I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys did see Tom manage to scrape through to bootcamp

Jake Sims and Jordan Morris also made in to the next stage with performances of When The Sun Goes Down by the Arctic Monkeys and John Legend's All of Me respectively.

Another returning act featured next as Jake Quickenden returned to the stage following his emotional Room Audition that went viral. Singing Jessie J's Who You Are, Jake's Arena performance was just as touching and won him one of the easiest yeses of the day.

Unfortunately things didn't go as smoothy for Leah Kennedy who left the stage in tears after performing It Will Rain by Bruno Mars, getting the only no of the whole show. Awkward.

Closing the Arena auditions was favourite Lola Saunders, but her audition almost went totally wrong too after she struggled to even begin to sing.

After a support hug from Mel B, Lola went on to belt out Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin, resulting in a standing ovation and a spot in bootcamp.

Over on Xtra Factor, we saw Cheryl Cole impersonator Abby Eade, Cheryl "stalker" Ben Quinlan, excitable Jade McQueen and Fruela Fuente all make bootcamp too.

X Factor 2014 continues on Friday on ITV with the start of bootcamp.
