X Factor 2012 judges impressed by 'great' bootcamp

X Factor 2012 panel

The X Factor 2012 bootcamp is over, and the judges seem to have been impressed with the talent on display.

Just a handful of acts remain in the competition now, with the week-long bootcamp process in Liverpool last week whittling some 200 acts from the auditions down to just 24.

The performers were put through their paces as they performed at the Echo Arena to thousands of fans, but who managed to hold their nerve and win over the judges?

Writing on Twitter, Tulisa said: "And boot camp comes to an end. What a great week!"

New X Factor judge for this year Nicole was also raving about the performances.

She wrote online: "Great week so far at XF boot camp here in Liverpool. Its tough but I’m so impressed with the talent here in the UK! Get some rest n let’s get to work tomm Xo"

Meanwhile it seems that Tulisa is confident about her choices for the next stage, posting a cryptic message on her Twitter.

She wrote: "U know when u get that overwhelming feeling that EVERYTHING happens 4 a reason..I get it all the time..but 2day its pretty intense ; )."

The next stage in the process for those remaining is judges' houses, with the acts being split up into their Boys, Girls, Over 28s and Groups categories.

The judges will be finding out soon just which category they'll be mentoring for the rest of the series, and we're hoping Louis gets a chance this year!
