X Factor UK Season 10 – Bootcamp Spoilers – TOP 24


X Factor UK season 10 audition episodes start airing next weekend, so I think it would be a good idea to check out the spoilers.

Judges were assigned their categories early this year – at the bootcamp stage. The reason for this is new dramatic and exciting format. Posters from Digital Spy forums collected spoilers.

TOP 24 (+ song choices)

Sam Callahan – Iris (Goo Goo Dolls)
Paul Akister – I’d Rather Go Blind (Etta James)
Ryan Mathie – Wake Me Up (Avicii)
Luke Friend – Alone (Heart)
Giles Potter – I Won’t Give Up (Jason Mraz)
Nicholas McDonald – I Won’t Give Up (Jason Mraz)

Brick City – Like A Prayer (Madonna)
Rough Copy – Stop Crying Your Heart Out (Oasis)
Kingsland – For Once In My Life (Stevie Wonder)
Xyra – Billie Jean (Michael Jackson)
Code 4 – Wake Me Up (Avicii)
Unnamed Girl Group – We Found Love (Rihanna) – manufactured from 3 rejects from the girls

Melanie McCabe – The One That Got Away (Katy Perry) – previously rejected from The X Factor 3x?
Abi Alton – I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Whitney Houston)
Relley Clarke – Respect (Aretha Franklin)
Jade Richards – Clown (Emeli Sande) – previously rejected from the X Factor at least 2x and 1x from The Voice
Tamera Foster – Stay (Rihanna)
Hannah Barrett – I’d Rather Go Blind (Etta James)

OVER 25s

Shelley Lewis (Smith) – Respect (Aretha Franklin)
Lorna Simpson – I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Whitney Houston)
Zoe Devlin – You Are So Beautiful (Joe Cocker)
Andrea Magee – River Deep Mountain High (Tina Turner)

Souli Roots (replacement for one of the above)

Check out this thread for more details.

3 acts from each category will make it to the live shows. TPTB are apparently also changing the voting system a bit. Digital Spy has an article about “flash vote”.

UPDATE (09/22/13)
According to UK media, Gary Barlow is pissed because Sharon Osbourne put Souli Roots through to the live shows. Public was present when Sharon picked her TOP 6 Overs in bootcamp and as you can see above, Souli wasn’t one of her choices. Looks like one of the TOP 6 Overs dropped out of the competition and Souli Roots was drafted in instead. Basically, Souli is this year’s Jedward, Wagner, Johnny Robinson, Rylan Clarke, etc. And I thought this season of XF UK would be joke-act-free.

Putting his foot down: X Factor judge Gary Barlow is ‘fuming’ over ‘comedy acts’ after Souli Roots is put through to live shows
Gary Barlow is said to be fuming at The X Factor bosses’ instance of keeping “comedy acts” on the show.

The Take That star is reportedly angry at producers for keeping Reggae singer Souli Roots in the contest, particularly after he demanded there was no repeat of last year when Rylan Clark controversially beat Kye Somes in a sing-off.

An insider told the Sunday People newspaper: ‘Gary wants to find a true star. He gets very serious when it comes to the live shows and knows he will be mentoring very good talent.
