'X Factor' 10th Anniversary Celebrated In 60 Second Montage (VIDEO)

It's been 10 years since 'The X Factor' first burst on to our screen with bickering judges and shocking singing - both good and bad.

To mark Simon Cowell's TV baby's birthday, 'X Factor' bosses have compiled their best moments from the past decade into one 60 second montage.

There's Gary Barlow's "fag ash breath" comment to Tulisa, Nicole Scherzinger's schermazing quotes and the moment one contestant punched their friend on stage, all in the video. But someone who only makes a half second appearance is Cheryl Cole - even Dannii Minogue is given more air time than her.

On Saturday the remaining 2013 finalists will re-enact memorable performances from the show and the hit singles released by past contestants.

Former alumnus Olly Murs will also take to the stage to perform. And if we've learned anything from the past 10 years of the show he'll probably be in a pair of tight trousers.
