PICTURES! X Factor preview: See all the performances from bootcamp
Here are all of the pictures of the performances from The X Factor 2015 bootcamp.

On this evening’s show the acts begin to get whittled down after 150 made it through their auditions.

As the contestants arrive at bootcamp, the judges meet them to reveal their challenge: They need to get into groups of five, with at least three from different categories.

They must then pick a song from a list before heading for vocal training and choreography lessons.

But while they get some help, the acts must arrange the song themselves and there are rows over what track to pick, how to sing it and who should perform which lines.

X Factor bootcamp SPOILERS! Tears, tantrums and rows between contestants
The X Factor 2015 bootcamp starts Sunday night and here’s a few teasers about what to expect this year.

This year’s bootcamp stage is MASSIVE, lasting FIVE weeks long.

It’s been split into two distinct parts: The ‘classic’ bootcamp and the six-chair challenge, which is the same as last year.

In the first part which starts Sunday and continues next Sunday, the acts will be taken away to a country house as in X Factor’s earlier series to work on their vocals, performing skills and stage presence altogether. They’ll be performing for the judges only (no audience) who will make some quick cuts there and then.

Going into bootcamp, Rita Ora admits: “I don’t know what to expect, as a newbie I’m kind of nervous but I’m excited.”

Cheryl tells her: “It’s cutthroat.”

Tonight’s show starts an hour earlier than usual. Get ready for 2 hours of drama. This year’s boot camp takes place in a huge country mansion.

Thousands applied, 180 remained. Simon dyed his hair?

The contestants arrive to the mansion (hotel?) on busses, the judges take a posh car.

The first challenge: the contestants will group in groups of 5 (mix of at least three different categories) and they will have to perform. Vocal coaches and choreographers will be on hand.

Group 1: Ryan Ruckledge (23), Katie Coleman (21), Samantha Atkinson (31), SilverTone (22-32), and Alex Wallhead (21)
Song: Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen
Ryan Ruckledge is the talentless troublemaker in this group. He is so annoying, I can’t even. He doesn’t like anything about the song or performance. Fight starts before the performance. Everyone goes through except for Ryan.

Group 2: Jennifer Phillips (34), BEKLN (22-31), Stephanie Beeby (17), Israel Allen (24) and Bupsi (37)
Song: Tina Turner – Proud Mary
What a surprise, the Tina Turner impersonator Bupsi gets to sing Proud Mary … Stephanie Beeby is terrible and definitely going home. Bupsi, BEKLN and Jennifer Phillips advance.

Group 3: Chloe Paige, Anton Banaghan and co.
Song: Tina Turner – A Fool In Love

Group 4: Alien and co.
Song: Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass
Everyone advances.

Group 5: Sean Miley Moore, My Bad Sister, Zen Blythe and others
Song: The Eagles – Hotel California
Sean is great!

Group 6: Lauren Murray (25), Jade McGuire (30), Tribe, Nathanael Landskroner (16) and Jojo Desmond (35)
Song: Michael Jackson – Man in the Mirror
Tribe is a boyband of 4 urban singers and they are the only ones that sound good on this song. This was a bad song choice.
Nathanael, Tribe and Lauren advance.

Group 7: Red Nile (18-22), Danny Sharples (26), Anton Stephans (45), Gifty Louise (19) and Mason Noise (21).
Song: Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass
In rehearsals, Anton has major problems with the song. He also sounds weird during the song. Mason Noise can’t really sing. Everyone advances.

Group 8: Monica Michael (25), Papasidero (24), Batz in Da Belfry (28/29), Sophie Plumb (22) and Princess Diamond (26)
Song: Taylor Swift – Blank Space
Monica and Princess Diamond start a major bitch fight. In rehearsal, Princess is nervous because she doesn’t know the song. Princess forgets the words during the performance. End of the road for her. Princess and Batz in Da Belfry go home.

Group 9: Simon Lynch (23), Tom Bleasby (19), Karen Mav (23), Joseph McCaul (27) and Sophie Stott
Song: Michael Jackson – Man in the Mirror
They have trouble selecting the right key. YIKES. Tom, Karen, Simon and Joseph advance.

Group 10: Jamie Benkert (24), Josh Daniel (21), Mon Amie (19-21), Ben Clarke (25) and Andy Taylor (35).
Song: Louis Armstrong – Wonderful World
Everyone but Andy advances.

Group 11: Kiera Weathers (18), Castellio (23-24), Kelly-Mai Webb (23), Lochei (34) and Decibellas (22-25)
Song: Taylor Swift – Blank Space
Male duo Castellio cause truble in this group. They forget the lyrics. End of the road? Yep, everyone else advances.

Group 12: Stephanie McCourt (27), Lucy Duffield (26), Charli Beard (17), James McDowell (19), Ankush Khana
Song: The Ronettes – Be My Baby
Ankush Khana forgets the words. How hard is it to learn a few lines in a day? What, James is the only one going home? I’m speechless.

Group 13: Louisa Johnson (17), Neneth Lyons (36), Jasmine Leigh Morris (21), Fourth Power (19-27), Andre Batchelor and Sherlyn Hamilton Shaw (40)
Song: Tina Turner – Proud Mary
Andre starts and he is hilariously bad. Fourth Power and Louisa kill it. The whole group advances.

This is it for tonight.

We are down to one show next weekend. Get ready for a solo round next SUNDAY.

Is this the maddest group ever? | The Xtra Factor UK 2015

End of the performance: “Crickets”

‘Your attitude stank’: X Factor’s Simon Cowell slams contestant Ryan Ruckledge for ditching important boot camp rehearsals in favour of getting DRUNK at the free bar
It was time for contestants to face their first challenge as the boot camp stage of X Factor 2015 finally got underway.

But not all of the wannabe popstars were focused on the task in hand – with some ditching rehearsals in favour of getting drunk at the show’s free bar.

Hopeful Ryan Ruckledge, 22, was slammed by judge Simon Cowell for an ill-prepared performance, which saw him forgetting his words and appearing drunk on stage – with the music mogul telling him his attitude ‘stank’ and that he was a ‘horror of a human being.’
