Nicole Scherzinger has defended the X Factor judges' decision to put Ryaln Clark through to bootcamp.

Rylan was one six guys who went through to the next stage in the competition last night, at the expense of some other big names in the contest.

The decision hasn't gone down well with many viewers, with one tweeting us: "wtf? why on earth did they let @RylanClark go through? So many others deserve it more."

And Karen commented: "I cannot believe that the judges picked Rylan Clark & James Arthur over Joseph Whelan – judges what were you thinking? Joseph Whelan definitely deserves another chance, bring him back and give him a life line"

However Nicole Caroline Flack on the Xtra Factor: "Rylan my love! I like Rylan. To me is he is all spice and sparkles.

"We need to find some diva empowering anthems for him.

"He would definitely have his own audience."

Also defending Rylan was Jake Quickenden, who has also made the boys' judges' houses.

He told us: "I think if people are judging it on talent... he does deserve to be there anyway, the judges put him trough so they must see something there."

Let's just hope he doesn't make the live shows!
