Who are The X Factor UK finalists in 2013?

Question: Who are the X Factor UK 2013 final 12 contestants?

Answer: Here is the list of finalists who will compete in the live shows of X Factor series 10, along with their categories and mentors:

Sharron Osborne’s Over 25’s

Sam Bailey

Lorna Simpson

Shelley Smith

Louis Walsh’s Boys

Luke Friend

Sam Callahan

Nicholas McDonald

Nicole Scherzinger’s Girls

Abi Alton

Tamera Foster

Hannah Barrett

Gary Barlow’s Groups


Miss Dynamix

Rough Copy

The live shows will begin on Saturday, October 12th on ITV. According to Digital Spy, week one of the live shows will kick off on an 80’s theme, despite the majority of this series’ contestants not having even lived during the decade. So expect a set list of songs from the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna and the usual list of eighties protagonists.

Though each Saturday night of this years finals will be based around a theme, lets hope the song choices don’t restrict the contestants too much. After all, as the first round auditions and Sunday night ‘save me songs’ always prove, the acts put on the best performances when their singing a song of their own choosing.
