The X Factor 2016's final three Groups in the live shows have been confirmed.

Tonight was judges' houses as Louis Walsh picked his finalists for the live shows.

A total of seven acts performed for Louis and his guest judges Alesha Dixon and Fleur East in Ibiza.

But for four it was bad news as Skarl3t, Four of Diamonds, Yes Lad, and Tom and Laura were all sent home by the Irish judge.

For three other groups it was the best news ever.

Louis said yes to Bradley and Ottavio, The Brooks and 5AM who are now all in the live shows of The X Factor 2016.

The boys met at university three years ago and have been singing together ever since, although they briefly fell out over some undercooked chicken, before being reunited during their X Factor audition. Bradley has been working in an American diner and Ottavio has just completed his university course in fashion PR. although they weren’t able to impress Simon in their audition, Louis was sure that ‘people will love’ them.

The Brooks

JOSH AND KYLE - 17 - LONDON
Twin brothers Josh and Kyle started singing in their local church as children. in 2014 they made it to Louis’ judges houses but didn’t secure a place in the live shows. They have now returned more determined than ever, having spent the past two years gigging and getting as much experience as possible. At their first audition this year Simon and Louis were glad to see them back with Louis praising them, saying ‘there is such an improvement this year’.

5AM

KIERAN - 19 - LEICESTER NATHAN - 23 - BRIGHTON JORDAN - 20 - LONDON
