The X Factor auditions are over and that means only one thing, the man they call the 'New Simon Cowell' and 'X Factor's 5th Judge'...names his Midas act for 2012.
Reality TV guru Dean 'Midas' Maynard's previous X Factor prediction successes include Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd and a certain boyband called One Direction.
This year, he has already predicted the Winner of Britain's Got Talent (Ashleigh and Pudsey) beating Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges in the process.
So who is Dean backing to win this years X Factor...
The act that Dean will be supporting throughout this year's X Factor is.Carolynne Poole.
Carolynne said this, when Dean told her the news "Yipeeeeee!!! Awww that's awesome, thank you!! I'm made up babe, that's fab!! C xxxx"
In terms of the rest, Dean likes Lucy Spraggan and Melanie Masson but thinks the main threat for Carolynne comes from 16 year old Ella Henderson.
Since 2006 his 'Midas' Acts have gone on to make 32 Finals from 36 shows.
Can he do it again? Time will tell.
