The final Home Visit on THE X FACTOR was emotion-charged as the judge’s had to say goodbye to half of their acts to arm themselves with their top three to sing it out at next week’s all important first live show.
Thousands across Australia auditioned, and following months of fierce competition during Boot Camp and Home Visits, the Top 12 have been revealed.
And in a new twist for THE X FACTOR, this year the judges get to pick a Wildcard contestant from their remaining three contestants. It’s then up to the viewers to vote for their favourite who will then make it to the Top 13 on Sunday’s live show.
