The X Factor: Series 8 - Boot Camp 1

The 132 successful acts that have made it through the auditions travel to London for the boot camp stage of the competition. The acts enjoy a welcome party on the outskirts of London. Some of the acts find their hopes being dashed before they have had the chance to perform when they are cut from the competition. All of the acts left in the running are put through their paces and some fair better than others when they are set the challenge of performing together in groups at Wembley. More acts find their dreams coming to end when they are eliminated from the competition but for some the journey continues. Some of those who failed to make it through are given a second chance when they are given the chance to form groups.
