Gifty Louise Agyeman, Anelisa Lamola and Chanal Benjilali were standouts on tonight's X Factor 2016 bootcamp.

The trio were in a group together and if it doesn't work out for them as soloists, they should DEFINITELY consider auditioning next year as a trio.

They chose Fifth Harmony's Work From Home to sing, with Gifty saying: "I want to show that I can sing and actually perform at the same time. This song is literally perfect."

Gifty, who got as far as bootcamp last year, went on to tell cameras: "Last year I auditioned for The X Factor and didn't make it past bootcamp. Getting a no was just heart breaking...

"I learned a lot since last year and I feel they're not just looking for a singer, they're looking for someone who can perform and I feel I can give that to them."

Anelisa also returned after a previous audition although she first appeared nine years ago in 2007, almost making it as far as bootcamp.

"When I got kicked off the show I literally lost all confidence," Anelisa said. "It's a lot of pressure coming back because I feel I have to live up to what I brought up to the table last time and even more.

After their brilliant performance that had Nicole Scherzinger up and dancing with them, the crowd of other acts were on their feet.

"That went down well!" remarked Dermot O'Leary from the sidelines.

In the judges' chat, Nicole raved about Anelisa while Sharon declared her love of Gifty's "sass".
