Our Favourite X Factor star, Coco Lloyd from Hitchin, will appear in front of millions on Saturday night for the first of the live knockout shows on ITV.
After making it though the judging stages and boot camp, the former St Francis College schoolgirl and North Herts College student will battle it out with her all-girl band Kandy Rain against the other 11 finalists.
The band hope to be crowned X Factor winners in December with the possibility of a Christmas number one.
The girls, who met while working at a London lap dancing club, have been called the best female group ever on the show by mentor Louis Walsh.
