The Insider

The theme for the next live show is Party Anthems, and the songs our finalists are singing have been selected by you, the great Australian public.

As Tuesday's show looms ever closer there is no denying that a party atmosphere has developed here at the studios, with each act desperate to put on a performance to remember.

We've had a sneaky peek at rehearsals and whilst we can't give too much away, we can tell you to expect performances that are sure to get you in the party mood back at home!

We're talking teams of dancers, amazing props, and perhaps the odd pyrotechnic or two!

So dust off those party clothes and get the drinks cooling in the fridge – because come Tuesday it'll be time to P.A.R.T.Y!

Our spies have been taking a snoop around the finalists' living quarters, and they've come back with some interesting finds,

Apparently the unit shared by Johnny Ruffo and YMS is by far the messiest, Joe from Three Wishez snores so loudly he's keeping his other housemates awake at night, and one of the contestants has feet so smelly that everybody runs for cover whenever they take their shoes off!

We know these guys are busy, but too busy to wash their feet properly?

In other news, Johnny Ruffo has been dishing out grooming tips to anyone who'll listen, and insists that even someone with hair as short as his must wash their hair every day.

"You've got to do it," the shaven-headed heartthrob told us, "otherwise you'll get dandruff, and nobody wants dandruff!" Wise words Johnny, wise words.

When they're not rehearsing, the contestants have been getting super-competitive on the Wii console... jeez it's one competition after another with these lot!

Mitchell and Andrew are neck and neck as the all-time Wii bowling champions, and Declan is a bit of a demon on the sword fighting game... On guard!

Well that's it for now folks, if you've got something you're dying to know about our finalists, leave a comment below and our trusty moles will try and find out for you!

    Can we get some more behind the scenes gossip/photos and videos of the contestants!? Since there is no xtra-factor i think you guys should make this happen.

    Mitchell you are one totally babe. I know you will win the X Factor hands down, I love everything about you, If you ever want a song suggestion may I please suggest you look at doing some Garry Allan Songs, he is an American Country Music Artist, you would so do his songs justice. Best of luck Mitchell, U Rock. Love Claire Joseph

    "We're talking teams of dancers, amazing props, and perhaps the odd pyrotechnic or two!" Throw in some fantastic performances by the contestants and you can save some money by skipping the dancers, props and pyrotechnics.

    1. Who hangs out most with who? 2. Which people share a unit? 3. What do the contestants do in their own time? (in the XFACTOR house?)
