The X Factor judges have got their categories for the first time this year.

Assuming of course you hadn’t read any of the countless spoilers up until now…

Last weekend saw the final stage of bootcamp take place before the acts were split up into their four categories: The girls, the boys, the groups and the Over 29s.

The singers in each category were then placed in a room before it was revealed which judge would have which category.

Sharon Osbourne said: “I’m really excited because I have no idea what I’m going to get.”

Nicole Scherzinger said: “I don’t feel as though there’s a stronger category yet but I feel the category I’d work well with this year are the Overs.”

Louis Walsh added: “I’m always a little bit nervous, I’m always a little bit excited about the reveal. These people you have them for the rest of the show.”

And Simon Cowell said: “There’s no bad category this year, it’s you who personally would like to work with and I’d like to work with the groups.”

First to find out was the groups who had Simon Cowell walk in as their mentor, which resulted in chants of ‘Simon’.

“We’re happy, we got the big dog,” said Rak-Su.

Next it was the Overs and it was Nicole who walked through the door.

“I’m so happy, dream came true because Nicole is my mentor,” reacted Slavko.

It was then onto the girls who rushed towards Sharon Osbourne as she stepped into their room, after she confessed to Dermot outside she did NOT want the category.

“They’re too young and I don’t want to hurt anyone,” Sharon admitted before stepping inside.

That left Louis Walsh to mentor the Boys who seemed more than happy with the match, chanting his name.

“I think I got the winner!” Louis declared.

From here it’s onto the Six Chair Challenge.

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
