The judges have flown out with eight acts each and must pick their four favourites for the live rounds, which will kick off in the autumn.
Louis Walsh has missed out on the popular Boys and Girls categories for the seventh time, landing the Over 25s, who haven’t had a winner since Steve Brookstein in series one.
Walsh has flown out to Barcelona, with Sinitta as his co-mentor, to try to find his first winning act since Shayne Ward in the second series.
Kelly Rowland has been given the Girls for her first series as a judge and will be hosting the acts at her ‘home’ in Miami.
Tulisa Contostavlos is tasked with finding the first ever Groups winner and will be hoping one of her acts can go one better than runners-up JLS and G4.
Gary Barlow is expected to team up with his Take That bandmate Robbie Williams in LA as he starts mentoring the Boys category.
