    The X Factor 2013 finalists have finally unveiled their glam new makeovers as they prepare to perform live on national TV for the very first time.

    The girls, boys, groups and over 25s briefly gave us a glimpse of their new looks in a sneak peek following Sunday nights’ show, but this is the first time we’ve seen them in all their glory.

    Prison worker Sam Bailey looks stunning in her promo shot, while most of the other contestants are also almost unrecognisable, perfectly styled to look groomed and glossy for the cameras.

    The 12 finalists have already moved into their temporary London home, where they’ll live for the next 10 weeks until their voted off the results show – or hopefully – make it to the X Factor 2013 final in December.

    The next few days will involve hours of rehearsing and meetings with their mentors as they prepare their very first songs for the live shows. The theme of this week’s songs has not been revealed yet.

    The unveiling of these glam promo shots is by far our favourite moment on the ITV show. Will you be watching Saturday night’s live performances?
