Gary Barlow has no idea who is going to win 'X Factor' this year because his opinion changed with each live show in 2011

Gary Barlow can't predict who is going to win 'X Factor'.

The Take That singer - who is mentoring the Over 28s category this year - is clueless about who may go on to be crowned winner of the singing contest because everything changes during the live shows.

He said: "It's impossible to predict who's going to win until you get further into the show.

"You can't watch the first audition and say, 'That's the winner!' It doesn't work like that. It's hard. The strongest and the most focused get to the final and we're only just getting to know these guys.

"They've all got the talent but have they got everything else? We'll have to wait and see."

Gary is confident his group - made up of Melanie Masson, Carolynne Poole and Kye Sones - is better than the Overs category ever has been before.

He told Hello magazine: "I just want to go do something really good with the category this year. And make them really relevant - and I think the three we have are the ones to do it.

"I think my category know who they are, who they want to be, how they want to look and how they want to sound. So essentially your job is to be there when they have a problem."

The first 'X Factor' live show begins tonight (06.10.12).
