There were tears all over the shop when the final 12 were revealed.
There were tears, tears and even more tears (Yes Rylan, we’re looking at you!) as the X Factor contestants were cut down at Judges Houses to the final 12 for the live shows at the weekend.
An average 8.7 million viewers tuned in to see Tulisa, Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh announce the acts they’d be taking in to the live finals, and they chose the following:
Tulisa – The Girls: Jade Ellis, Lucy Spraggan and Ella Henderson
Louis – The Groups: GMD3, MK1 and Union J
Nicole – The Boys: Rylan Clark, James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas
Four of the rejected acts were given a possible lifeline as it was revealed that there would be a Wildcard, with each judge giving one artist in their category an extra chance of making the live shows.
The public can now vote for Christopher Maloney (Overs), Adam Burridge (Boys), Amy Mottram (Girls) or Times Red (Groups) to join the live TV finals.

Oh, go on then, one last giggle…sorry Rylan.
