X Factor final 12: Louis Walsh slated over his choices (again)

Louis judges' houses

Louis Walsh has been slammed by viewers over his picks for The X Factor 2016 final 12.

Tonight was judges' houses as Louis picked his finalists for the live shows in the Groups category.

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.

On Twitter as the show aired, viewers made their opinions felt especially over Louis' female-free line up.

On 4 of Diamond's exit, one viewer tweeted us: "They were brilliant! I fear That Louis chap is not using his brain to think with!"

Another added: "Can't believe they never went through #jokefactor #xfactor"

And a third declared: "Louis Walsh's group choices are a joke! 4 of diamonds should be in there."

One fan quipped: "Louis Walsh could be given the girls category and would still find a way to put cute boys through to the finals #xfactor"

The decision to put through Bradley and Ottavio also came under particular fire.

"Wtf is Louis Walsh playing at with his choices," one tweet to us read.

As Louis concluded his judges' houses, another fan concluded: "Well, predictably, Louis has totally made a complete horses arse of his final 3 choices. #XFactor"
