PICTURES! See X Factor's Groups performing at judges' houses

The groups sing for a place in the X Factor 2016 live shows at judges' houses tonight.

Last sunday evening saw this year's Six Chair Challenge conclude as Louis Walsh took charge of his regular category on the show once more.

Despite mentoring them almost every series, Louis has yet to win with a group - could that change this year?

Well Louis certainly took his sweet time in picking which acts to take through to judges' houses.

Things were far from straight forward as Louis found himself getting booed by the live audience at Wembley Arena, bringing axed acts back and ending the whole thing with a three way face off between a trio of girl groups.

Once all was said and done, 5AM, Skarl3t, Four of Diamonds, The Brooks, Ottavio and Bradley and Tom and Laura all had a seat and are now through to judges' houses.

And they're joined by Yes Lad who were chosen by Sharon Osbourne as the wild card for the groups category.

Five piece boyband Yes Lad is made up of Joel, Cian, Sonny, Lewis and Luke, who originally secured a seat in the Six Chair Challenge but were swapped out.

Yes Lad reacted: “We thought that was it and we were out. It’s so surreal to now be going to Louis’ house. We feel we’re the underdog and have something to prove to Louis. We have Sharon on our side and she said that she believed in us so hopefully Louis will listen to her.”

Tonight we'll see the seven groups left fighting it out for three spots in the live shows.
