X Factor 2014 final 12 spoilers: Tears as Louis Walsh picks final Groups

'X Factor' press launch, London, Britain - 27 Aug 2014

There are tears from Louis Walsh on The X Factor 2014 tonight as he picks his final three acts.

Louis jets out the six remaining groups - Only The Young, Blonde Electric, Concept, The Brooks and the two new bands from bootcamp - out to Bermuda for his judges' houses.

There they each sing for Louis and his guest judge, former X Factor panelist Tulisa.

It's then a tense wait for the acts as Louis picks his finalists, with lots of vocal help from Tulisa.

Louis says: "What an interesting day, the problem is I like all the six acts in different ways."

"You've got a seriously big decision to make," Tulisa says, "You can only pick three."

The pair clash over a number of decisions, with Louis wanting to take a risk but Tulisa insists: "Sometimes you either have it or you don't."

The two clash over another act, with Tulisa saying as Louis rules out one act: "That really saddens me, these are people's lives."

"They just didn't excite me," Louis replies.

Meanwhile, the groups wait on in the shadows, with Only The Young admitting: "It's terrifying, it's actually, genuinely terrifying that they're deciding right now."

As Louis delivers his choices, he's seen with tears in his eyes saying: "I know I've broken their hearts but I can't put everyone through."

See who Louis Walsh picks for the live shows when The X Factor 2014 airs this evening from 9PM on ITV.
