It's the last X Factor 2012 auditions as try outs hit Cardiff!

X Factor logo

It's the last day of X Factor 2012 auditions today, as the judges move onto the final city of Cardiff.

New judge Nicole Scherzinger will be joined by Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the panel for only the second time, following a range of guest judges earlier on during the audition tour.

So far auditions have been held in Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and London.

Wales has always brought some characters to the show, with hunky John Adams one of our top favourites on the show last year.

And of course, we'll be interested to see if Ceri Rees will be back for yet another attempt to make it past the judges.

Perhaps new judge Nicole will finally give her that much awaited yes?

After this afternoon's auditions it'll be onto bootcamp for the lucky remaining hopefuls, which will take place later in the summer.
