Welcome everybody to the second "VS Series" of The X Factor! This series will be the battle of the 2011 Series from UK and US, and for the first time Australia (which will be referred to as OZ).

In this series, we will have a five-piece judging panel consisting of three returning judges and two former guest judges who will be taking permanent seats on the panel. So let's please welcome the new look UK vs US vs OZ panel!

Series 1 Winner -- David (yohinnchild)
Series 1 Runner-up -- Steve (Soppyfan)
Series 1 Impartial Judge -- Kuda (Kuda_Kunaka)

And our two new judges
Tom (Noonan15) and Pingu (Pingu58011)

Tonight our judges will find out the category they will be mentoring and will select which contestants they want to make up their teams. However, as there are five judges there will also be a TWIST giving a fifth category.

The categories will be:

Boys
Girls
Overs
Groups
and Wildcards

The judge who is allocated the Wildcards category will wait until every judge has selected their team and can make up their category with any three remaining contestants, providing they are from different categories.

Each judges team must be made up of one UK act, one US act and one OZ act, including the Wildcards

So judges, who's ready to find out their category and choose their team?!

You seemed to be obliging to your task with the Overs very well last year and you seemed very comfortable!

Thanks

I'm happy with the WC's though (other judges leave me with something vaguely good when you've all picked )

Gotta head off for about 30 minutes (poss more) - will see what I'm left with after that and pick/ post my acts

Good luck everyone else
