X Factor group District3 had admitted that they feel the judges have been hard on them.
The tiro were slated by the panel for their performance last week, but managed to avoid to the bottom two in Sunday's results show.
The boys confessed they've been finding it hard to always be under fire for the judges, can claimed that mentor Louis Walsh had failed to allow them to show what they really can do.
"We do feel like we're getting a bit of a hard time," the group explained. "All we want is to impress the judges - we work hard to get it right.
"We don't think we've had a chance to show what we can do. We play instruments as well - we're not just a boy band."
Speaking ahead of Saturday night's Best of British themed show, District3 insisted that there wasn't any rivalry between them and rivals Union J.
"People try to build a rivalry up with Union J because we're two boy bands, but we get on really well," the boys explained. "We have a similar fan base, but girls are always going to have their favourite.
"They've got more followers on twitter though."
The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.
Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
