Sunday it was the turn of the Overs and Sharon Osbourne selected Honey G, Relley C and Saara Aalto

Finally, Nicole Scherzinger picked her boys. Freddy Parker, Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie made it through to the live shows.

All 12 will now go forward to next weekend where The X Factor will go live for the first time this year.

As usual, the acts will be singing for public votes and those with the fewest will have to sing again.

It'll then be up to the judges to decide which of the lowest ranked singers will be going home, assuming they can come to a decision, otherwise it'll revert to the public vote.

The X Factor 2016 goes LIVE next Saturday and Sunday night from 8PM on ITV.

And don't forget to tune in to The Xtra Factor straight after the main show on ITV2 with Rylan Clark-neal and Matt Edmondson.
