X Factor categories announced

The X Factor categories have been announced!

Cheryl Cole has got the 14-24-yr-old girls, Simon Cowell has the 14-24-yr-old boys, Louis Walsh the groups and Dannii Minogue the over 25s.

It looks to us like X Factor bosses are pitching the favourite two judges against each other (sorry Louis and Dannii, you know it’s true!) by giving them the categories most likely to win.

Dannii clearly agrees. ‘No-one ever wants them [the over 25s] but we’ve got some good ones this year.’

Although we’re sad the audition stages are over, we do love it when X Factor boils down the really good performers and we can start picking a favourite. At the moment we’ve got two. Daniel Evans, the young, widowed father and Rachel Hylton, the ex-drug addict who wants to turn her life around. Who are you backing to win?
