Boy band 5AM could be ones to watch on The X Factor 2016 this year after tonight's auditions.

So far this year the groups category has been a bit lacking with just THREE acts in bootcamp before tonight's episode.

5AM became only the second all male group to make the next round this evening after a VERY energetic performance in the judges' room.

The boys aged 20-23 hail from all over the UK and sing Drake's One Dance in front of the judges.

Despite the name there are only the three members in 5AM: Jordan, Kieran and Nathan.

"We all like the same type of music, Motown, R&B, all those big vocals. We all love to dance, we all love to sing," the guys explained.

Singing Drake's One Dance for their audition, the trio brought a lot of fun to the performance, including a back flip or two.

"You got me dancing!" Nicole Scherzinger enthused. "It had such a good energy and such a good vibe."

Louis Walsh raved: "Great audition, I wasn't expecting it to be that good.

Sharon Osbourne agreed: "It was great!"

Finally Simon Cowell concluded: "Probably the best group we've seen."

With four yeses, 5AM sailed through to bootcamp.
