The X Factor 2012 Judges

The X Factor 2012 launched this evening with exciting new promo featuring stars including One Direction, JLS, Leona, Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke and Little Mix.

Poor Matt Cardle.

The new series is set to kick off on ITV1 next month, and stars discovered by The X Factor are launching series nine of the show in a variety of adverts to be trailed on ITV.

In the adverts, One Direction, JLS, Leona, Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke and Little Mix are seen watching footage of themselves as children and at their first auditions. They talk about their experiences in the show, their success in the competition and their careers since.

The ads end with the tagline "Whose Time Is Now?"

Thousands have applied for the new series, with the auditions set to begin airing in a few weeks' time.

This year will see another new change to the panel, with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger replacing Kelly Rowland alongside Gary Barlow, Tulisa and the loveable Louis Walsh.
