The X Factor 2017 is back on ITV tonight (Sunday) with the final auditions – and here are the last lot of contestants.
Tonight sees the room try outs conclude as the final batch of hopefuls find themselves eyeball to eyeball with the judges.
Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh are all back on the panel this year, joined by guest judge Alesha Dixon at Manchester and Edinburgh’s auditions.
And as always, they’re accompanied by host Dermot O’Leary who returns to guide us through the series continuing tonight.
This evening, we meet eight acts all wanting to get a spot at bootcamp before the auditions conclude but they need at least three yeses from the panel to make the cut.
Which of tonight’s acts will impress?
Meet tonight’s contestants on The X Factor 2017 below…

You may recognise 48-year-old entertainer Simon Gross from Beckenham who appeared in Channel 5’s Big Brother previously. Now hoping for success on X Factor, so-called Showbiz Simon sings Robbie Williams’ Let Me Entertain You – with a few lyrical changes.
