This year's X Factor final will be staged outside of London for the first time.
The fourteen-hour long 'finale' — which was held at Wembley Arena last year — will now take place at the 11,000 capacity Manchester Central this December.
A clearly excited Louis Walsh had this to say about it all (as quoted here): "Our Live Final is going to be another major event — so The X Factor 2012 has everything. I believe it's going to be our best series yet."
Unless you've got Craig Colton back we don't see how that can be true Louis.
The new series starts THIS SATURDAY!
