Double bill of auditions and final bill of them! I couldn't be more excited they are coming to an end and the competition is finally starting. This weekend the final bunch of contestants will take the stage to surprise the judges and next week we'll have bootcamp! ... It's time to face the music!

Recap and videos, plus a live feed, after the JUMP ...

Auditions 6

First decent contestant of the night is hunky math teacher, John Adams (23), he's only been teaching for a year, and he already wants to ditch that job. This is his day off. He's singing "Cannonball" and is quite great. He's got a really similar tone to Damien Rice, their voices are very similar actually. His male friend backstage is crying. Haha.

Mother of 4, Michelle Barrett (31) always wanted to be a singer but had to postpone that for her children. She thinks nows the time. Her voice is nice but I doubt it's the best we've heard. She's a good singer though and with a better song she could be great. Aw! Tulisa is crying! "You remind me of my mum" she says. She tells us her mum was always singing in the kitchen and never did nothing with her voice. Tears, tears, tears.

Biggest make up, fake tan and extravagant style fans, duo 2 Shoes are next. An they are from Essex, of course. If they win, they want to buy a micro pig, and they are serious. The shocker is that they are both actually good singers. Their harmonies sound a bit off but they've got loads of potential.

And the girls were impressing everyone. Big voiced Melanie McCabe (17), who already auditioned in 2008, from Dublin, "Hi Louis" she says. "That was amazing" Kelly tells her. Sarah Watson (17) sings "Love Story" with another great big voice. Sophie Habibis (19), who works at a pub. She's got an amazing tone, very jazzy and unique. Definitely one of the best in this montage.

Final audition of the day is John Wilding, who made it to Dannii's JH and was cut. His voice is great and he should have made it last year over Nicolo Festa for instance. Nice pimp spot for John's second audition. Maybe second time lucky?

Auditions 7

16 y/o Bradley Johnson. He's not really a school person, so he doubts he'll go to college. He's been expelled from 3 schools. He was drinking on the streets, being arrested. He's trouble. Or was trouble. He's singing Ed Sheeran's "The A Team" and it's sounds a bit strange. He's got a quite unique voice but I'm not sure if it's good enough. It sounds off at moments for me but it's good overall I guess. Judges love it, he's through.

And the guys were on fire. Max Vickers (19), who dresses up as a squirrel as a job. "What?" "Someone's gotta do it" he says. He wows the judges with his "Price Tag" performance and his unique voice. Anthony Chisman (22) also delivers with "I Need A Dollar", which was kinda unexpected. Joe Cox (17) also does a great job with some quite interesting vocals. Tulisa is in love with him. Haha.

Up next is Terry Winstanley (51), who's a scaffolder that looks like taken from Little Italy, gives the judges a great performance, with some weird moves and very old fashioned style. I didn't like it. At all.

He wasn't the only impressive Overs. Beverley Savarin (35) wows with her amazing jazzy voice and incredible high note at the end that reminds me a lot to Esperanza Spalding. Joseph Gilligan  (26), who's a former wrestler looks like a rapper but has a quite smooth voice. Former Fame Academy finalist, Carolynne Poole (30) wows with her huge voice and despite they were only 10 seconds, it was quite impressive.

Finally a little something from Xtra Factor. Anyone remembers this girl? Her name is Faye Horne and she was a member of DSB Supergroup with The Key's member Lewis Codling. (HERE, VIDEO) Well, she sounds great here, very unique and fun. Plus she's got a lot of swagger. - VIDEO

And with that, we finally say goodbye to the auditions. Next week, bootcamp begins!
