As the battle commenced last week it was a nervy, but successful, round for Team Midas. All four acts, including 'steal' act Christina Marie, progressed to the knock outs.

Brothers Shenton and Bizzi Dixon arrived at the auditions together but were quite clearly in competition. Tribute performer Shenton was up first.  Again it wasn't bad, but not enough for the coaches or Midas chair to turn. Can his brother do it?

Will horse loving Fiona Kelly jump in to the next round. Well no, she sadly fell at the first hurdle. The nerves were there for all to hear. With coaching and controlling those nerves, I think Fiona should audition for another show (cough) BGT.

The first live show brings so much pressure, so much in fact, even I'm sweating and I'm not even singing. The theme tonight is the 80's so get out your leg warmers and fingerless gloves...

Deano, Deano, Deano, oh sorry, you caught me daydreaming about singing at Wembley Arena.  Right, back to audition show Four. White van driver Shelley Smith was up first, good start, not my cup of tea, but I can't knock the vocal ability and the energy. An audience pleaser. See you at bootcamp.

What I am hoping to see this year? Well, I think a mixed group will do well. I also think the boys section will be very strong again this season and as we know, the first ever series started with an 'overs' victory, so will we get a repeat on the 10th show?? Time will tell on that one.

This has to be one of the best ever BGT semi-final series of shows and as it draws to a close, this final show was probably the toughest one to call. I really think anyone of five could vie for the two remaining Final places.

It began on Saturday 18 August. We enjoyed tears, tantrums and some blooming awful singing, but after 16 weeks, we made it to the end and Dermot O'Leary announced the winner of the X Factor 2012. Congratulations... (pause for the tension) ...James Arthur.
