Who will be given a golden ticket to the X Factor Live Shows? Who will be sent packing with a pat on the back from Dermot O'Leary and a bus fare home? And will there be another Gamu-style controversy as the judges cut 25 acts down to 12?

Digital Spy will be live blogging the results of the X Factor Judges' Houses this evening as the acts compete for the best 'Cry Face' (it looks like a close call between Rylan Clark and Chris Maloney), and keep everything crossed that they've done enough to make it through to next weekend.


20:57That's all, folks! What do you make of the Final 12? Is Rylan the worst ever finalist? Who do you want as the lucky 13th singer? Let us know!


20:56So basically you have to vote to make up for the fact that Nicole and the producers wanted Rylan in the live shows.


20:55However, unlike the wildcards two years back, only one of these can go through. It's a phone vote. So get voting for your favourite!


20:54Tulisa picks Amy as her wildcard. Gary wants Christopher. Nicole selects Adam. And Louis Walsh picks Times Red.


20:54There is a wildcard. Each judge gets a wildcard. Some grab Christopher before he kicks one of those sheep.


20:53OOOHHH, A TWIST!


20:52Oh my days. Chris is going home. Melanie is going through. Melanie gets a hug from Dermot. Christopher is left to wander alone with some sheep.


20:51Chris's head is shaking harder than ever. Melanie looks like she could burst with nerves. Coldplay's 'Fix You' is kicking in. Barlow could cry at any moment. This is too much.


20:49If you weren't crying before, a bit of Coldplay's 'The Scientist' and two old singers possibly heading to the scrap heap should finish you off.


20:46The final spot is between hippy mum Melanie Masson and shaky hands Christopher Maloney. Who is your money on?


20:45GMD3, Union J, MK1 are the Groups. Jahmene, Rylan *shudder* and James are the Boys. Ella, Lucy and Jade are the Girls. Kye, Carolynne and... a mystery act will be the Overs.


20:44So, we have one final ad break. And one final space in the X Factor Final 12.


20:43And she is through. Trust Gary 'Back For Good' Barlow to bring us the most heart-warming moment of the series. Carolynne is one to watch this series, we reckon. As long as she isn't morphed into some awful Shania Twain-esque middle-aged Magic Radio act.


20:41Carolynne is up next. She HAS to go through. Surely Gazza can't rip this away from her AGAIN. That would be too cruel.


20:40Bad news for Nicole Marie and Brad. We called it. But it's the best sort of news for Kye. Chim-chimenee-chim-chimenee-chim-chim-cha-roo. The chimney sweep is off to the live shows.


20:36Nicola Marie, Brad (who?) and Kye Sones are the first to discover their fate. We don't hold out much hope for the first two.


20:34Right, Rylan has finished having a fit in front of Nicole (you could see the 'what have I done?' expression flash across her poor face). It's time for Gary to dish out some bad news to the Overs.


20:32'Jake and Adam' and 'If Rylan' are trending on Twitter. We don't think the sentences end, 'deserved to go home' and 'doesn't win, we'll be annoyed'.


20:28Come back, Kitty Brucknell, Jedward, Katie Waissel. All is forgiven.


20:27Oh, Nicole. You've created a monster and it's called Rylan. It's alive. IT'S ALIVE!


20:26No surprises that Adam, who has had barely a minute of air time during the series, is gone and that Rylan is heading to the live shows instead.


20:24The final spot is between Adam and *sigh* Rylan.


20:22Ha. Nicole told Jahmene to "grow some balls". Hilarious.


20:22Jahmene is through. Yay! We reckon Nicole just couldn't face being the bad guy to send him packing.


20:21Nathan is out. Oh no.


20:20Jake Quickenden, Jahmene and Nathan are the next pair to find out whether they are through or not. God help us all if Jahmene doesn't get a spot. The tears will be unbearable.


20:17James is going to the live shows. And he gets a big bear hug from Nicole. Best. Day. Ever. For that lad.


20:16The first act to get a one-on-one with Nicole is James 'Deidre Barlow' Arthur.


20:15Next up is the Boys. Miss Scherzinger has some decisions to make.


20:11He picks the younger, and cuter, Union J. So the Groups going through to the Live Shows are MK1, Union J and GMD3. Three ridiculous names. One of them is almost certainly going home in week one.


20:10Louis Walsh is left picking between two boybands. Times Red and Union J. Louis choosing between boybands. He's like Winnie the Pooh trapped in a honey factory.


20:08One act who are going through is the cheeky boyband GMD3. Louis Walsh wheels out the "it's not good news... it's great news" line to reveal it to them. Good old Louis.


20:06It turns out we didn't miss anything. Both acts are sent packing.


20:05The next acts to face Louis Walsh are the twins and Duke. Will one of these make it through? If the beatboxers or the mad-looking twins get a spot, it would be a bit of a shock, wouldn't it? Or did we miss something?


20:03Oh, it's bad news for Mitsotu. "You haven't heard the last from us," they cry. Hmm, where have we heard that before?


20:02MK1 and Mitsotu are the first groups to go face to face with Louis Walsh and his ever-changing hair.


20:00Boom! It's Vegas time. Let's hope Louis can throw his usual spanner in the works and pick some stinkers.


19:59What do you make of the Girls top three? Jade Ellis. Spragginator. Ella Henderson. Ella looks like a potential winner. But what do you think of the other two? Did Tulisa make the right call?


19:55Spraggan and her awful Hawaiian shirt are through to the next round. It's tears before bedtime and a super hug from Dermot for Amy. Tulisa's mascara! Won't someone think of Tulisa's mascara!


19:52Amy or Lucy. Lucy or Amy. Who will get through? Spragginator or Mottram-bot? Yes, we did just make up those nicknames.


19:52Oh, it looks like everyone is still crying. Not much.


19:51Oops. Apologies. We just suffered some technical difficulties. A few gremlins in the system. What did we miss?


19:46The first act through to the next stage is... Ella Henderson. Tulisa does her best to tease it out. But we all knew that she was going through, didn't we? That would have been Gamu-gate x one billion if she had been dropped.


19:43We start in St Lucia. I reckon Dermot will be hosting the Live Shows from a video link-up from there this year.


19:42Welcome to the big reveal then! Expect tears, high drama and gigantic Dermot hugs.
