We may be only 15 days into the X Factor journey here in Australia, but we’re already down to the top 12 acts (pictured above) and it’s this Sunday night on the Seven network when things really start getting interesting, with the first of the live show set down for 7:30pm.
The 12 performers will take to the stage in the hope of securing not only the judges’ vote, but the vote of the Australian public, who’ll ultimately get to decide the performers’ fate.
The finalists are as follows;
UNDER 25 GIRLS
Hayley Teal – 20 year old from South Australia
India-Rose Madderom – 21 year old from New South Wales
Sally Chatfield – 20 year old from Victoria
