X Factor 2016: The groups have ALL changed their names

X Factor spoilers!

X Factor groups

The X Factor 2016 groups have all had to change their names for the live shows.

Just like last year, with all the 4th Power/4th Impact stuff, the trio of groups in the live finals each have new names.

That's despite two of the acts being named after their actual names.

Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro have become Bratavio.

The Brooks are now known as Brooks Way.

And 5AM are now known as 5 After Midnight

The trio were given a spot in the live shows tonight by mentor Louis Walsh.

5 After Midnight got the first yes, as Louis told them: "I could see you really worked well as a unit. To be relevant you need to tick every single box. My decision is, you're in my final three!"

Brooks Way were told by Louis: "I want to thank you for coming back to the competition but I've got to be honest the vocals were not as strong as I wanted them to be... can I take the risk or do you need more time? I have made my decision, it's a very big risk but I am going to take the risk. You're through to live shows!"

And Louis said to Bratavio: "You're different and different is good. The singing, sometimes it's good. I wonder are they going to sell millions of records, will the audience get it. It's a very big risk, and it's not good news... it's great news, you're through to live shows. I may regret this decision."

The X Factor 2016 airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
