X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow & Caroline Flack drop hints about final 12 contestants but Nicole Scherzinger is back in Dubai!
The X Factor live shows will start in just a few weeks time and it seems that the final 12 contestants have began rehearsals.
Judges houses concluded earlier this month and Gary Barlow, Tulisa, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger each chose three acts each to go forward to the finals.
Caroline Flack revealed on Twitter this week that she’s started working with the hopefuls already and has been interviewing them about their hopes and their journey so far, for ITV2 spinoff show The Xtra Factor.
“Off to interview secret people at a secret place. Shhhhh.”
We imagine that the big X Factor makeovers are well underway and by now, probably the closest family members of the contestants wouldn’t recognise them with their new hairstyles and outfits.
Gary Barlow seems to be happy with his category this year and after wokring with the young lads in 2011, this year he’s at the other end of the scale and mentoring the overs.
He tweeted: “Been routining with my X factor lovelies all afternoon. What a lovely bunch I have this year ! #tooexciting [sic]”
The Take That star is once again putting in extra effort and time with his singers too and he even had them over for dinner this week. The dad of three added:
‘Just had dinner with my #XFactor contestants.Not only talented singers but lovely people too #result’
However, as Gaz is hard at work with his contestants, Nicole Scherzinger is nowhere to be seen and is currently sunning herself in Dubai.
The American star hosted her judges houses stage there earlier this month and chose her final three boys for the live shows. Yesterday she revealed on Twitter that she had returned, posting:
‘From the airport…just landed in Dubai’
We hope she isn’t going to be another Kelly Rowland….more interested in her own career than in her acts!
Meanwhile, as we prepare for the bootcamp and judges houses episodes of the show to air over the next two weekends, Unreality TV have put together out predictions for his year’s X Factor final 24. Have a look and tell us if you agree!
