With new judge Cheryl Cole onboard, this year's X Factor promises to be the best series so far.
We've been hearing rumours of the squabbling between the panel for months. Dannii Minogue and Cheryl apparently not getting on and the love-hate relationship between Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh becoming more childish than ever.
To celebrate the start of the new series, we've found clips of our favourite hopeless hopefuls from the old shows.
Who could forget Rachel, the most aggressive contestant the judges had ever seen who even managed to frighten Sharon? Then there's Robert, whose rendition of Tragedy by Steps sent chills down our spine. Next there's Zoe, who had a hissy fit when she was told she couldn't sing. And of course, the audition no X Factor round-up would be complete without - the mortuary twins. The very thought of it makes us break out into a cold sweat. Enjoy!
