Prior to her audition, she released her own self-independent album, Top Room at the Zoo , and performed regularly at Live and Unsigned events. Dubbed as "Derbyshire's answer to Victoria Wood ", Spraggan performed three original songs on the show, one of which later went on to chart at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. Spraggan was left distraught after the death of her grandmother at the start of week two, but later went on to perform Kanye West 's " Gold Digger " in her grandmother's honour. She got thrown out of her hotel after she and Rylan were messing around drunk.
The "Over 28s" category was mentored by Gary Barlow. Contestants in this category are either gender aged 28 and over. Barlow chose:. At his audition, he struggled with his nerves, but managed to overcome them when he advanced into the live shows  as this year's wild card winner, beating Times Red, Amy Mottram and Adam Burridge to win the final spot in the live shows.
He had major support from celebrities such as Jane McDonald and Marcus Collins , and despite being dubbed a "cabaret" and "cruise ship" singer by Walsh, Christopher Maloney advanced on the public vote nine times being the highest voting contestant seven times out of the nine.
In March , Maloney came out as gay. Melanie Masson born 25 July is a children's entertainer and mother-of-two from Cathcart , Glasgow and lives in North London. Known as Fairy Flutterby in her home town, Melanie had previously performed in many bands and had a small amount of experience in the music industry before auditioning for the show.
Compared by many to Janis Joplin , Masson was eliminated in week 2 after the judges failed to decide between her and District3, and the result went to deadlock, where she received the fewest public votes. Masson revealed that she has already held talks over a deal that will see her cut her first album. Poole previously auditioned for the eighth series of The X Factor , but was eliminated at Walsh's judges' houses. This year, Barlow put her through to the live shows. In week 1, she sang her own rendition of Nicki Minaj 's " Starships ". Despite receiving positive comments from the judges, she ended up being placed in the bottom two with Rylan Clark.
The result went to deadlock after Walsh controversially changed his mind, and Poole was eliminated after receiving the fewest public votes. Kye Elliott Sones born 14 August in Hammersmith  is a former chimney sweep and musician from Pinner , London. Sones impressed the judges at his audition, where he sang a mash-up of " Save the World " and " R.
Both times the result went to deadlock and Sones was saved by the public vote in week 3, but was eliminated in week 5 of the competition after being in the bottom two with Rylan Clark. The "Groups" category was mentored by Louis Walsh. Contestants in this category are duos or vocal groups and all members must be aged 16 or over. Rough Copy were initially through to judges' houses but had to back out due to visa issues, and so Times Red and Union J were brought back in their place. Walsh chose:. In , they left the school and decided to form the band. They were managed by Jayne Collins, who also managed The Wanted.
Afterwards, Barlow announced that GMD3 had won the sing-off and they were put through to judges' houses.
Osbourne commented that she disliked the name GMD3 as "it sounds like a virus — which does not say anything about them". On 1 October, GMD3 announced that they would change their name after receiving Osbourne's criticism, as well as a dispute with an American pipeline of the same name.
In week 1 of the live shows, District3 performed their own arrangement of " The Best " and were put through by the public vote. In week 2, they were in the bottom two with Melanie Masson after performing " I Swear ". Walsh and Tulisa voted to save them while Barlow and Scherzinger voted to eliminate them.
The result went to deadlock and Masson received fewer votes, and District3 were saved. In week 3, they performed a medley of " Beggin' " and " Turn Up the Music ". In week 4, they performed a mash-up of " Every Breath You Take " and " Beautiful Monster ", which received negative comments, but they were not in the bottom 2.
In week 5, they performed " Dynamite ", which again received negative comments, but again they were not in the bottom two. After two consecutive weeks of poor feedback from the judges on their performances,  District3 performed " Tears in Heaven " in week 6. Contostavlos, despite not being required to vote, revealed that she would have voted to save District3. On 18 August , District3 released their self-titled debut EP, consisting of seven songs.
In a statement on their official Twitter, they said "It's impossible to express our appreciation to you in one message, but 3EEKS, all around the world, you have been more than everything we could ever have asked for. The support you have given us has been overwhelming, which only makes it harder to tell you that we have decided to bring our time as District 3 to an end. This has gathered over , views. III " at their audition.
Rundle and Dixon impressed the judges, but they were told by judges Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos that if they wished to advance, they would need to get rid of Baker. MK1 then advanced to bootcamp as a duo, and went through to judges' houses, where they were mentored by Louis Walsh. After performing " Dub Be Good to Me " by Beats International , they impressed Walsh and guest mentor Sharon Osbourne sufficiently to be put through to the live shows of the competition, making them the first urban act ever to achieve this feat. On 10 November, the duo tweeted "On route to nottingham for studio!!!
See yah tomorrow London!!!
This was followed later by a picture of them in the studio, with the caption "Ohhhh yehhhh studio time!!! Union J formerly Triple J are a four-piece boy band. Their audition was shown in a montage entitled "Hot Hunks" rather than shown as its own segment, so that they could be portrayed as auditioning directly before soloist George Paul Shelley.
At bootcamp, Shelley performed Labrinth 's " Earthquake " with female contestants Charlie Cammish and Meg O'Neill as part of a mixed group, but was not selected for judges' houses. Triple J sang with GMD3 later District3 for their group challenge and, as the last event of bootcamp, both groups battled for a place at judges' houses, with GMD3 taking the last slated groups slot.
However, after fellow contestants Rough Copy had to withdraw from the show, Triple J's manager, Blair Dreelan, who had previously signed Shelley as a solo act, was called by the show's producers with an invitation to send Triple J to judges' houses if Shelley were added to the group. Three days before the flight to Las Vegas , Shelley was added to the group and they were renamed Union J. They were in the bottom two again in week 6 against District3 and were saved by the judges, with both Barlow and Scherzinger choosing Union J and Walsh refusing to vote since both acts were in his category Union J also received more votes than District3.
On the night of the week 7 live shows, after Saturday's performance of "Call Me Maybe", Hensley officially came out as gay in The Sun , which he then credited on Sunday night as being because he had been sure they would be voted out, and he wanted to leave the competition "honest and himself". They were not in the bottom two, however, and Hensley has stated that he has been "overwhelmed by support. On 2 December, they were eliminated in the semi-final, and it was later revealed that Christopher Maloney only beat them to the final by 0.
