The X Factor: Series 9 - Boot Camp 1

The successful acts that have made it through the auditions travel to Liverpool for the boot camp stage of the competition. Before the hard work begins they enjoy a welcome party thrown by the judges. A third of the acts end up being cut from the competition before they get the chance to try and impress the judges again. Those who make it through have to compete against each other in small groups in a sing off. The competitive streak really comes out in some of the performances and there is also friction on stage. Those who fail to impress are cut from the competition. Those who make it through learn that when they perform tomorrow they will have one last chance to impress.
