The first half of judges' houses is over, and we've got six of our twelve X Factor UK finalists.

Tonight's show started with the Overs, who performed for mentor Sharon Osbourne and guest judge Robbie Williams in LA.

Sam Bailey performed I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston to become the first to make the final three, while Lorna Simpson followed after singing If I Were a Boy by Beyonce.

The third and final spot went to Shelley Smith, who sung Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys, completing an all female line up for Sharon's final three.

It meant that Zoe Devlin, Andrea Magee and Joseph Whelan were all sent home in some very emotional scenes.

Next up, we went over to San Tropez with Louis Walsh.

The boys performed for mentor Louis and guest judges Shane Filan, Nicole Appleton and Sinitta in France.

Getting the first spot in the live shows for the boys was Sam Callahan, with the barman singing Fun's We Are Young.

Luke Friend and his hair went through next after singing Cannonball by Damien Rice, leaving just one spot.

Paul Akister and Giles Potter were both sent home by Louis, leaving just two acts fighting over one spot.

Ryan Mathie's performance of Just Give me a Reason by Pink impressed Louis, but it was Scotland's Nicholas McDonald who won the last place in the lie shows with If You’re Not the One by Daniel Beddingfield.

It leaves us a 24 hour wait now until we find out who will be making the live shows in the Girls and Groups categories.

Gary Barlow will be flying out his acts - Brick City, Code 4, Kingsland Road, Miss Dynamix, Rough Copy and Xyra - out to New York.

Meanwhile, Nicole Scherzinger and her girls - Abi Alton, Hannah Barrett, Melanie McCabe, Jade Richards, Relley Clarke and Tamera Foster - will be in Antigua.
