Now that the final 24 X Factor contestants have been chosen (six in each category) each judge faces the difficult decision of who to take to the live shows and potentially win this year's competition.
As always the rivalry between judges goes into overdrive with each pulling out all the stops to make sure one of their acts gets to the final.
This year wanting to win more than ever is Dannii Minogue.
With seven number one hits, the multi-million selling singer is a perfect choice to help Dannii choose who out of the remaining six girls will end up in the top three and go on to perform in the live shows.
Each year, the finalists get taken to their judge's home (or country of choice) and this year Dannii chose the luxurious five-star Atlantis Palm hotel in Dubai to make her decision of which girls to keep and which to send home.
Dannii's final six girls are Stacey Mclean, Despina Pilavakis, Lucie Jones, Stacey Solomon, Rachel Adedejij and Nicole Jackson.
The last 12 acts - three for each judge - will be revealed at the end of next Sunday's show before the live rounds begin next month.
