PICTURES! X Factor 2014 judges' houses results - first finalists revealed

The first three of the X Factor 2014 finalists have been revealed - and here's a picture recap of how it all went down.

Tonight we saw Louis Walsh whittle down the six acts in his Groups category to just three who will progress through to the live shows next weekend.

All six of the judges' houses acts in the Groups had one last chance to impress Louis and guest mentor Tulisa in Bermuda before he delivered the tough verdicts.

Concept, The Brooks and the new Girl Band were sent home in some teary exits.

There was not good news but GREAT news for the remaining three contestants as it was revealed that Only The Young, Blonde Electra (formerly Electric) and the new Boy Band are in the live shows and are X Factor 2014 finalists!.

But Louis' choices have caused some controversy, especially after his bootcamp debacle last weekend too.

Are you happy with the final three groups? Tell us in the comments!
