It's the last of the live auditions tonight on the X Factor and as with all of the other episodes tonight's show was packed with some amazingly talented singers and some devastating back stories.
First off the bat was the adorable Jayden -- who really stunned the judges with his composure at the ripe old age of 17! With his good looks and smooth voice all of the judges pinned him as a potential candidate for The X Factor's boy band.
Which contestants had Mel B and Nat Bass drooling?
This season of The X Factor seems to see a lot of talent returning to the stage after failing to make it through in previous years -- and 16-year-old Veronica Bravo is no exception! Singing Michael Jackson's I'll Be There she had all the judges fighting to be the mentor to her new and improved mature voice!
Next up were rap collective GCG -- minus one member who is in jail! When Christian and Ahmed took to the stage -- Christian provided one of the biggest onstage chokes of all time, proving just how hard it really is to take to The X Factor stage! After a few tense moments Christian finally convinced Ahmed to continue on through to the boot camp without him!

Valencia bravely tackled soul queen Aretha Franklin's Natural Woman -- and got Guy Sebastian dancing all dirty like! We can't help feeling that there are some amazing soul queens in the making in this years comp!
Brothers David and Danny (D&D) shared their heartbreaking story of their mothers nervous breakdown -- but Guy Sebastian felt that their song choice had him guessing about whether they were "great singers or terrible". However they managed to scrape through to the boot camp with three votes.
The last audition for The X Factor was 15-year-old Judah, who revealed that he struggled with bullying in high school because of his looks. He sang a personal favourite of Ronan Keating's I Won't Let You Go by James Morrison -- and although he forgot the words part way through he still managed to wow the judges with his sincerity and maturity.
And that brings us to the end of the live auditions! Stay tuned for our recap from boot camp next week! If the promos are anything to go by it is going to be epic!
