The X Factor viewers are to be given even more power this year - choosing for the first time which category the judges will mentor.

A live vote will take place on Twitter while auditions are airing, in which the public will decide whether Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw will mentor the Boys, the Girls, the Overs or the Groups for the rest of the series.

And the judges may soon be campaigning on social media to ask their fans to help them land the winning category which this year appears to be Groups.

Cheryl said: "The Groups this year are the best they have ever been."

The categories vote will open on Twitter during the first episode on ITV on Saturday, and closes at 12pm on September 1.
