The X Factor 2014 Judges' Houses final 24 biographies.
 
24 must become 12 as The X Factor goes to Judges’ Houses, with the hopefuls just one step away from reaching their dream of performing in the live shows.
 
The four categories travel across the globe to four glamorous destinations, offering them a glimpse into the jet set lifestyle that could await the winner of the competition. Only one chance remains to impress their mentor and prove that they possess the star quality required to reach the live shows.
 
This year the Groups visit Bermuda with mentor Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell invites the Over 25s category to his home in Los Angeles, the Girls will sing for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in Nice, while the Boys fly out to Mexico with Mel B.
 
With the agonising decision of whittling six acts down to just three, each judge is joined by a guest mentor. Louis is joined by former judge Tulisa, who herself tasted victory with the only group to win the competition, Little Mix. Cheryl enlists Tinie Tempah to assist her, while Mel B is joined by her fellow Spice Girl Emma Bunton. Simon meanwhile reunites with X Factor stalwart Sinitta.
 
As ever, X Factor host Dermot O’Leary will be on hand to congratulate the lucky three, and console those that fall at the final hurdle.
 
The 24 remaining acts have successfully sailed through the room and arena auditions, and the cutthroat Boot Camp six chair challenge, but now only Judges’ Houses stands between their lives changing forever.
